What's Your Story?

What’s Your Story?

At first glance it is easy to dismiss homeless people.

They are drug addicts, abusers and good-for-nothings.
They are lazy, troublemakers and are always looking for a handout
While these statements may seem truthful by superficial observations, their accuracy is far from the mark.

Every individual you see on the street, pushing a cart or sleeping on a bench comes with a story.
Some stories have elements of

abuse, addiction and lack of opportunity.

However, these stories also include events like

divorce, lay offs and loss of a loved one.

Some stories include serving time in the military only to return home perpetually tormented by PTSD.

Everyone has a story, many of which would break our hearts if we just took the time to sit and talk with those in our path.
