Rodger is 83 years-old and lives in van near Seattle.  He says it’s not that bad. He doesn’t have to pay rent,  and that leaves him with enough money to get a good meal or go to a movie.  Rodger says that if he was paying $700 or $800 a months rent, he would not have enough money leftover to pay his car insurance or to simply have any quality of life.

Rodger says he hasn’t given much effort to getting off the streets, but when I asked him if he could afford an apartment would he get off the streets…Rodger responded he would.

    It’s incredible to see an old man like him in the street. He’s veterant, so he deserve a worthy end of life. He touched me because he has a good mind and make always the best of the situation.
