Parts of the, per person, monthly budget for the homeless woman and her daughter follow.
Here's my relevant budget in Canada, in US dollars, for comparison.
Note that Canada has, on average, higher prices! One of the constant things I hear about people who travel to the US for family visits, conferences, and vacations is: the food is so cheap! Yet, here we have a woman in America who burns over 50% of her take-home pay on food and phones and then has a total of, maybe, $100 for rent. No wonder, she doesn't have a proper roof.
