Rosco is homeless in Toronto, Canada. The weather was below zero with a deadly windchill factor. Some of the biggest risks to homeless people outside in the winter are dehydration and frostbite.
Rosco is lucky. He has a friend that allows him to sleep on a couch to get out of the freezing cold. Rosco still needs money to survive so he panhandles.
Rosco has lived homeless on the streets of Toronto for six years. He says for most of that time he has been on a housing list. Sadly, there is just not enough housing for people. That needs to change if we are ever going to save lives and end homelessness.
