Homeless to hero: Former Glencoe grad helps fight homelessness among female veterans

Leanne Babcock grew up homeless. Now, she’s doing everything she can to make sure no one else ends up on the streets. Babcock, a 2000 graduate of Glencoe High School, is in the Air Force Reserves, currently working as an air technician in Honduras. She’s the first college graduate and first service member in her family, and she’s working to slow the explosive growth in homelessness among her peers. Babcock is a contestant in the Ms. Veteran America competition, which raises money and awareness about the rise of homeless women veterans living across the country.
