A senior woman told MSNBC on Monday that she hoped the government shutdown would end in the near future because she is facing homelessness.


MSNBC's Mariana Atencio reported that one home for low-income seniors is at risk of closing after missing two building payments that would have been supplemented by the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Resident Diana Sarto explained to Atencio that she had no other place to go.

"I have no family it's just me," Sarto said. "It's not like I can go live with a daughter or something because I can't. And I think, you know, the backseat of my car is awfully small."

Sarto let out a nervous laugh and then called the prospect of being homeless "a little bit frightening."
