Bringing dignity to homeless

Anita Hauck regular visitor to adult literacy outreach

Re: Cliff camp leader ‘touched souls’ (The News, Oct. 2)

Thank you for the beautiful article about Anita Hauck.

She and Ken were regular visitors to the CEED Centre, where I work in the adult literacy outreach office.

Together they spoke passionately about bringing dignity to those who live without homes.

I read some of her writing.

She brought her daughter to an art workshop.

It broke my heart to see her described in some media as a “homeless woman” whose name was not released.

Your article gave dignity to her life and passing.
