Richard has lived homeless in San Francisco for three years. He first hit homelessness with his son, and the two of them lived on the streets together.
Richard simply wants someone to listen to him. While I was setting up my camera he kept saying thank you over and over again. Richard was overjoyed someone paid attention to him and was interested in his story.
Richard is a veteran, and San Francisco’s Homeless Outreach Team, also known as the HOT Team, also listened to him. The good news is that Richard is soon to be in housing!
