I met Kevin in Portland, Oregon. He was a union worker and was told his job was safe. But in today’s world, no job is safe.

“There are a lot of feed places down here,” Kevin tells me and then continues “a person can do pretty good actually”. Like most areas where homeless people gather there is an overabundance of food but no places to sleep.

Please, before your church or bowling team goes out to feed homeless people do a little research. We have food – WE NEED HOUSING! Support homeless service organizations that are helping people with housing, jobs and health services!

I not only like Kevin I very much relate to his story. Over 10 years ago he was homeless and rebuilt his life only to have the economy bring him back to homelessness.
