I met Donald while walking around in San Diego. Donald has been homeless ever since he got out of prison two years ago. Interesting that Donald says he was also homeless before he went into prison.
Donald is on social security, but he keeps getting denied housing because of his past. Donald needs to have back surgery, but because he does not have a place to stay to recover, they won’t do the surgery.
Donald says he is on parole and they don’t have a solution. He went to jail for a small infraction and was just released, and by the way he tells the story, I get the feeling Donald would have rather stayed in jail.
You all do know it’s far cheaper to house someone than to pay for a jail cell I hope!
