“This time of year gets lonely for people,” says Wendy Lockwood, a 74-year-old resident of Green Ridge Meadows Apartments in Evergreen.
Not only does Lockwood have occasional loneliness to contend with, she also is living on a meager income of $700 a month.
While talking about her life and the challenges she faces, Lockwood remembers times when she was among the homeless.
“It’s been a rough road,” she says. “I’m just barely making it financially.”
