Katie Amberson is slowly getting her life on track. She moved here from Phoenix, Ariz., a few years ago with her mother to help take care of her grand-aunt. Since then, her aunt has died, but Katie stayed here. She decided to become a vendor about four weeks ago.
Apart from offering her a sense of community and an income, Street Roots offers Katie something even more essential.
“It helps me get out of the house and go and meet people and do things. I don’t usually like going outside,” she said.
