Imagine living under a busy freeway in New Orleans. Now imagine you have to sleep in a group, because the threat of violence is never far.
When you live outside, without a door to lock or a roof over your head, you are constantly vulnerable to violence. For Steven, the fear of violence never completely goes away. He said the other night another homeless man was “bricked.” (Yes, it is as horrible as it sounds.)
That all said, I’m still shocked after hearing the last job Steven held.
