John lives in a small grassy area right in the middle of Downtown Atlanta. He had a rough childhood and never learned to read, which has proven to be a real roadblock in finding a job.

For the past six years, John has been in and out of homelessness. Although he has a family, he says he stays on the streets by choice; although it’s not uncommon for a ‘couch surfing’ arrangement to go bad quickly.

Although John’s situation is rough, he maintains a positive attitude. As he says in his own words, to get up out of homelessness, “You’ve got to want it.”

Thing is, when someone is ready, we need to be there to help.
