FIRSTHAND: Coronavirus – Tina Renaldi


In this documentary series, WTTW explores the personal, firsthand perspectives of people whose lives have been upended by the coronavirus in Chicago. Tina Renaldi is homeless and living on a subterranean downtown sidewalk. As the Governor of Illinois issues a “stay-at-home” order, she wonders how she is going to survive. She relies on panhandling and donations from church groups for food and money, and all of that has now disappeared. Tina is left feeling like the homeless are an afterthought by society, and she wants the world to know that people like her are human and must not be forgotten.
