‘My family could have easily become homeless’

'My family could have easily become homeless'

Dame Helen Mirren has said it could have been “very easy” for her family to become homeless while growing up. 
The actress made the comments during an interview announcing her participation in a worldwide campaign against homelessness. 
Dame Helen, who was born in London but grew up in Essex, is the daughter of a taxi cab driver who later became a civil servant. 
Speaking to The Evening Standard, Dame Helen said: “What is shocking to me is how a hard-working family doing their very best can be pushed into homelessness so quickly by the loss of a job when you have absolutely no financial back-up whatsoever and so many families are like that,” she said.
