Napa’s Jenna Bolyarde: From homeless woman to homeless advocate
From a Napa Valley Register article updated on July 17th, 2017 by Jennifer Huffman.
Jenna Bolyarde’s life has definitely had some dramatic twists and turns.
Over an 18-month period several years ago, Bolyarde was homeless. She lived in her car or slept on couches or even on the bathroom floor of a hospital.
As if that wasn’t enough, at the same time Bolyarde was also an IV heroin user who had lost custody of both of her children. She spent time in jail, on probation and in multiple rehabilitation programs.
