Andre

Andre has been living on the streets of San Diego for six months. Andre is in a wheelchair, and when I asked him where he slept last night, his response messed me up.

Andre says he survives by the goodness of God and treating others as he would want to be treated. He also gets food and clothes from local homeless services. Andre is a senior adult, and sadly, the streets are no place for anyone to spend their retirement years.

If you live or work near the East Village of San Diego, an area otherwise known as “the Bottoms”, I hope you’ll never get used to seeing disabled seniors and families with young children out on the streets. I pray seeing these older adults and young kids homeless messes you up like it did me!
