Jimmy is a homeless Vietnam Veteran living in a homeless shelter near San Jose. He was renting a room, but because of lack of work was not able to pay rent. Jimmy then found himself in court and eventually the streets.

Jimmy was lucky this time. He found EHC LifeBuilders and didn’t spend any “street time”. But Jimmy has been homeless before. Once for four years.

Good news is Jimmy has a plan. The Veterans Administration has been paying benefits and Jimmy believes he will be back on his feet soon.

His wishes are simple: that no one has to go through what he went through and that our country gets better.

Special thanks to EHC LifeBuilders and Housing 1000
