Nathan

While walking this morning in Portland, Oregon I met Nathan. Too me the weather In Pacific Northwest is nasty and I don’t know how people survive on the streets. Nathan told me he has a sleeping back, a few jackets and uses storefront awnings when he can to stay dry.

Nathan has been homeless off and on since he was 10 years old.

Many street people do not want to use shelters. Lines to eat or use showers are long. Often they are not safe.

Nathan survives by begging for money at an intersection. In weather like today, he hopes to get enough money for a nights stay in a hotel. Today Nathan was lucky.
