David worked as a chimney sweep for 23 years in Minneapolis, but when the economy crashed, work slowed and he lost his job. Both David and his wife ended up homeless going from shelter to shelter. Right now they are couch surfing, staying in a over-crowded apartment with friends.

I cannot imagine living homeless in Minnesota. David tells the story of how they lived under a freeway bridge for a time, and were lucky to not be hurt when the bridge collapsed.

    When I traveled some cities in U.S, I saw some homeless people on the streets. The deepest impression is that one night in Jan, on the main street in Las Vegas, some homeless people still sit on the street. The weather is really very very cold. I just hope they can have some place to live,they can have better life.

    When my husband lost his job in 2009 we were blessed to have enough resources to start a small business and be part of the solution. In 2010 we relocated to a community that currently has 17% unemployment..Although it has been a struggle, we have been able to grow over the last two years and create 3 full time and one part time position. Our hearts go out to the many unemployed and underemployed, Our dream is for a country that supports it’s neediest and we hope to continue to live by example.
