Telling a story with voices

"'I’m a formerly homeless woman,” said Silva Colvin during the UW women’s choir concert on Tuesday. “I have a home now. After the struggle of pulling your bags everywhere you go and passing by people who just don’t want to be bothered, different things can get to you. I’ve been through all that, and I’m in my right mind. I was offered a bed at Noel House – that’s right, I was offered. That is an honor. To be welcomed, to leave the garbage outside the door, and it won’t come in with you.' Colvin and several other women who use the services from Noel House joined the UW Women’s Choir class, MUSEN 201A, on stage at St. Mark’s Cathedral for their benefit concert, Homeful."
