Venka is the “Venka” of #VenkaAndWill and the “Grace” of “Will & Grace 2.0”.
When I discovered my work colleague from my mortgage industry days was homeless, I was shocked! Venka was the last person I expected to end up homeless. I learned Venka had been taking care of her adopted mother as her in-home care-giver. When her adopted mom died, her support system was gone. In 2016 Venka suffered a stroke. In 2018 it was diagnosed. Meanwhile, Venka became homeless. It’s been a year. Medical issues complicate her life (to put it mildly). She’s still without a permanent home. Living in her car.
