David has been on the streets of New York City for about a year. After his girlfriend had died in his arms, David ended up in a psychiatric hospital, and his landlord evicted him because of it.
This is not David’s first time homeless. He says the reason is he is in and out of prison. Having a criminal record makes it extremely hard to find employment, and there is little support anymore for people reentering society.
David is working with the city hoping to get his housing back.
