Richard ran away from home at 13. He has been sleeping rough off and on ever since. This time for over a year! The night I first met Richard it was raining hard in London. The good news is he is on a waiting list for a hostel. As it is in the U.S., having a pet limits support services, so the delay is waiting for a pet-friendly facility.
Richard has lived a hard life but he makes it clear he doesn’t want an sympathy. He knows there are others worse off than him. Richard tries to stay grateful in life!
I really like Richard. Over the last week I have spent a few moments talking to him. I really hope Richard and his dog Britney find a place to call home soon.
