“One day I woke up and I was homeless”, Derrick says to me while panhandling on a busy San Francisco street. I often found my own homelessness to feel like that. For me, it took year’s of bad choices, but one day I woke up sleeping on the streets of Hollywood.

Derrick has traveled a lot since he first hit the streets in Ohio. He sleeps near churches or cemeteries.

Before you judge Derrick’s third wish remember it’s nearly impossible to do homeless sober. If you were going to the bathroom behind a dumpster you’d want to forget too.
