Doug is 68 years old. He is a Vietnam era veteran but never saw combat. Doug and his niece were living in an apartment, but the mold was getting him sick. They ended up homeless with their two dogs!

I met Doug in Gainesville, Florida. He was taking turns with his niece flying a sign on the side of the road hoping to get enough money to survive. Doug receives a pension from the military. He told me they should be able to get another apartment soon. Tonight it’s going down below 30 degrees.
