Jared is homeless in Austin, Texas. He says homeless is depressing and causes a mental breakdown. Jared says that people can die if they don’t find food or shelter.

Jared says that for some homelessness is a result of not making good choices. He goes on to say that getting out of homelessness is not easy, but it’s a blessing to get your life back and it makes you grateful.

Jared has been homeless for two years. He had a nice job and messed up. He then got sick.

Jared went back to college and currently has a job, but he is still sleeping outside. He is one of the thousands of working homeless in America.

Jared wishes that everyone could have the experience of homelessness so they would value the things they have.
