Jeanne Albaugh has spent her life in service to the homeless. When she fell and broke her back while inside a fast food restaurant, she not only lost her life long dream of becoming a world champion in barrel racing, she became homeless herself.
Once she realized her dream would never materialize, she fell into a deep depression and got addicted to pain killers. Her husband eventually divorced her and she lost her three children. Jeanne, who gave so much of herself to the homeless, now found herself living under a bridge. Even though she attempted suicide several times during this difficult and challenging time, it was a letter from her son that helped her emerge from this darkness.
Now Jeanne is the founder and CEO of Showering Love who provides mobile showers to the homeless via a converted 42 foot city bus. These showers provide a safe and comfortable place for South Florida’s homeless to bathe. It also restores dignity and hope to those who are too often forgotten and shunned by society.
At the end of the interview Co-Host Alex said, “ I will never look at someone that is homeless the same way.
After hearing Jeanne’s story Alex had a new perspective on homelessness, you might say, he got a new pair of glasses.
