Donovan Wilkes was eating lunch in his office when two of his colleagues told him Miss Mary, an older homeless woman he had been checking on, wasn’t responsive.

It was 11 a.m., two hours after Miss Mary usually woke up, packed her belongings and walked to Peet’s Coffee for her first cup of coffee of the day.

“My heart dropped,” Wilkes said. “The only thing I was thinking was, ‘Go to her.’”
