Dana Stokes shares her experience during the COVID-19 pandemic in Madison. She talks about how abruptly all of her plans changed in February and March, when hiring freezes halted a job opportunity and her kids were at home with her full-time. She describes adapting to take on many different roles for her family - teacher, counselor, friend - and continuing to be an advocate for her son who is on the spectrum. As a board member and former President of the Homeless Services Consortium of Dane County, Dana also talks about homelessness as "another pandemic," exacerbated but not created by COVID-19.
