About a year ago, after sharing her story at HHAD, Poppi Handy was approached by Firesteel and asked to be a part of the "Finding Our Way" StoryCorps project, a series of interviews between people who have experienced homelessness and their loved ones. A year later, Poppi's story is featured in two separate articles, that discuss her experiences with unstable housing as a child and the importance of affordable housing advocacy in both her personal and professional life.
