I wasn’t sure of I was going to post this story. But InvisiblePeople.tv has one goal and that is to present the realities of homelessness. And who knows, maybe Paul’s story will strike a chord with someone out there.

Paul has been sober for one week. When I asked why such a young guy is homeless, he said, “Drugs, man. Sticking a needle in my arm… because of that. ruining relationships.” He’s right. Addiction is a serious crisis. One that leads to homelessness for many people.

Before you judge Paul, look at me. This Aug 24th, I will have 14 years sober. Let me assure you, I was far worse than Paul. But I’m proof that people can change.

I hope Paul makes it. Sobriety is a road less traveled, so he has a long battle ahead. Luckily, there are places like Phoenix Rescue Mission that are there for people when they are ready to change.

    Wow what a handsome young man. Listening to him I would never think he would steal cars or do drugs. I pray for a miracle in his life. Hopefully Mark telling him your story will give him the encouragement he needs to get clean.

    It looks like his family invested a lot in him (those teeth have definitely seen braces) and are going to be continuing to support him. I hope he can pull it together enough that all that sacrifice will be worth something. He probably has tons of potential. Sad.
