This week I was in Washington DC. I had a few meetings, and even though it was raining out, because I didn’t have money for taxi rides I decided to walk.
I met a few new homeless friends along the way. Calvin has only been homeless for a month. He says “there is no guarantee that you’ll always be taken care of or have a job”
Calvin talks about the horrors of living in the shelter system. He’d rather sleep outside in the rain than stay in a shelter.
The good news is Calvin is getting help from a homeless services organization and hopefully soon will be off the streets before the rain turns to snow.
