Paul

Imagine the cold weather outside as your alarm clock in the morning. Well, that’s exactly what Paul told me when we met in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I was in town this week helping 100,000 Homes and Albuquerque Heading Home survey the city’s homeless population to house 75 of the most vulnerable.

The next day after I met Paul a winter storm hit the area and Albuquerque experienced record colds. Paul is sleeping under stairs behind a building. I sure hope he found someplace warm to last out the storm.

All of the three homeless men I talked to that morning had frequent visits to the emergency room for various reasons. All three were also victims of violence on the streets. All three were veterans.

Paul is scared he is getting used to homelessness. He has given up looking for work because there is no work. Please watch this short video to hear his three wishes, and please support 100,000 Homes to help get people like Paul off the streets and into housing.
