The life of a homeless person

It’s the pursuit of housing — from sleeping on a park bench to sleeping on the concrete sidewalk to sleeping at the shelter. Thank God for the shelter. Even sleeping in a room with 80 guys beats sleeping in the cold. In my pursuit of housing, I have to have good credit. I did not have good credit and my income was too low to qualify for an apartment. 

Thanks to Street Sense Media, I became a street vendor and I’m supporting myself. I have my own business working with Street Sense and I am my own boss. Street Sense saved my life.

Spread love.
