Kenneth is a straight shooter. He’s been sober for four years and is taking the right steps to move forward with his life. But it isn’t easy. He has been to prison, so finding a job is more complicated than usual. He’s getting old, he says, so his job skills aren’t what they used to be. But he remains optimistic, “I just roll with the punches. But believe me, if there was some other way, I wouldn’t be here.”

Kenneth offered an interesting street perspective. He says that there are more shelters today then there were 20 years ago. At the same time, he says that even more shelters are desperately needed because the need has not been met. He knows of people who are still sleeping under bridges at night because they have nowhere else to go.
