Keith has been homeless sleeping rough in or around London since he was 17. He just turned 53.

A local homeless service provider was able to get Keith housing, but the landlord wanted more than the housing benefit would pay. All six people living in the house got evicted.

Once the sun starts setting and shops begin to close in Central London, the doorways become home to rough sleepers. The amount of homeless people sleeping outside is alarming.

The affordable housing crisis is not just an American problem. The cost of housing is skyrocketing in the United Kingdom, Canada, and many other countries.
