America’s homeless crisis is everywhere. This week I’m visiting family in Binghamton, a small town in upstate New York with approximately 45,000 people. This is where I met Eddie.

Eddie used to work as a cook before becoming disabled. Like many homeless he relies on recycling for an income. Eddie said he has not slept in two days because it’s so cold outside (last night, the mercury dropped to 16 degrees).

Eddie does not know what his future will be. His only hope is to survive another day.

He’s been sleeping with a blanket in the twenty degree Binghamton winter. As far as help goes in the city Eddie states that if you don’t have an ID Binghamton will not do anything for you. If any elected official in Binghamton is reading this you might want to take note and work to do something about changing that. […]
