Ms. Hudson has been a social worker for 35 years. She knew from a young age that she wanted to help people and was especially drawn to hospitals. But she ruled out becoming a doctor or a nurse because she didn’t like the sight of blood. For the past 15 years, she has devoted herself to the Homeless Health Initiative. She says people who are experiencing home- lessness come from all types of backgrounds. If you meet them, you probably wouldn’t guess the challenges they face. Children can help change people’s perceptions about those without a home. Be kind, Ms. Hudson says. Don’t judge others. Consider what it would be like if you lost your own home. Treat everyone with respect, she says. Ms. Hudson says she loves her job. She feels she can make a difference in other people’s lives, and they make a difference in her life. “I give them hope,” she says. “And they give me hope.” — By Felix Carmona, Arianna Green, Yamile Olivares Ixchel Reyes, and Orlando Wright-Burruss Eisenhower Healthy Panther 19 Illustration by Yarisuanett Monge, St. Veronica Healthy Hero
