It gives us great pleasure to finally share Tammy Karuza’s story with you all!! Her activist approach in her writing has inspired us, and we hope it will you too.

Tammy is newer to the Washington D.C. area, but working with Street Sense has allowed her to reconnect with her passion and gift as a writer. She feels as though God has called her to write about the experiences she is having as a homeless woman and use her gift to reach others. We hope you will enjoy hearing her recite “Faith Forward” an original poem she has written and has yet to put in the paper.

If you would like to know more about Tammy and her poetry, let us know! She is eager to share her work and have conversations with as many people as possible. (
