Dan

Dan was first displaced after Hurricane Rita. Losing his house caused relationship problems with his wife and everything started to spiral downhill from there.

I met Dan at SXSW working an ice cream cart on 6th. He’s part of a new program run by Austin’s Mobile Loaves & Fishes called Street Treats.  Street Treats help homeless people make a few dollars by selling things like ice cream and cold water bottles. It’s really amazing in many ways. Maybe the coolest is the people running the cart are mostly street homeless.

The night before Dan slept under a tree. Before the interview he told me if he wasn’t working for Street Treats today he’s probably “flying a sign” for money.
