Erika, 57, has worked in various occupations, including as an aged care worker. When she lost her employment some years ago, she became homeless, sleeping rough on the streets of St Kilda in Melbourne and then moving into precarious accommodation in a private rooming house. Today she lives in public housing and is a passionate advocate for homeless people. She is a volunteer with Vincentcare and for the Council to Homeless Persons.
