Marshall is 20 and was first homeless at 16. He says this coat ‘speaks to him’ about feeling safe.
“It makes me feel comfortable. It reminds me of a blanket, it feels safe and reminds me that even if I ever miss the train or something, and get stuck on the street, I have something to wrap around me. It will keep me warm. I get comfort from it. I’ve overcome negatives in my life and it reminds me of that.”
