T.J. has been homeless in San Francisco for the last three years. After getting sick he was not able to keep his job, and with no family or friends ended up on the streets.
Because T.J. is disabled, he gets $900 a month, but that is not enough for housing and food. He tried the shelter system, but he says the insane standing while waiting in line makes it not worth it.
T.J. is just of many older American’s who are not able to work, yet benefits do not support housing!
