For men and women who are homeless or poor, daily life is a series of disheartening and dangerous struggles, which leave many without hope that things will ever improve. Over time, this hopelessness itself becomes the biggest obstacle between those on the street and their chance for a better life. In this Visionaries episode you will witness how, in 1982, two young women created a safe place for women to go during the day. A place where they would neither be judged nor asked to justify their homelessness or poverty, where they could be in the company of other women and could find the energy to restore themselves. That place is the Women's Lunch Place on Newbury Street in Boston.
