I met Angelo on the streets of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Angelo went to prison, and when he got out, there was nothing for him. He tried to find work, but like so many other men and women coming out of institutions now currently homeless, employment was impossible to find.
I happened to be in Albuquerque to support 100,000 Homes. There was a winter storm on the way. Angelo’s clothes were wet and he was trying to raise enough money panhandling to get out of the bad weather. When I left this morning there was snow on the ground and my heart broke for Angelo and others like him with no place to go.
