I met Al in Toronto, Canada. Because of a drinking problem he lost his business, his family…everything.

The night before we met Al slept outside. He has been on the streets for 15 years.

My heart broke when he told me his wife died this past October out on the streets. No one should die on the streets homeless.

  • Alcohol is always problem. Especially in our Russian community on Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, NY. In our St. John House for Homeless we don’t have drug addicted people, but almost all our guys had problems with drinking in a past.

    That is way to Long to be Homeless. I would think after 5 years someone would do something. I thought there is a Law that you have a Legal Right to a Safe Place to Sleep.
