Jim

I met Jim in Vegas on a 116-degree day. Like many others I met, he came out here to start a new life. Instead, he wound up on the streets.

Jim lives in a tent city that has been moved eight times. He says his only other alternatives are jail or leaving town. The most heartbreaking thing about Jim’s story is that he has AIDS but not healthcare, so he doesn’t receive badly needed medications. The only public assistance he receives is food stamps.

One of Jim’s closing statements still haunts me, “it’s hard on everybody, it’s just a little more hard on the homeless.”
