Tony is homeless in Denver, Colorado. He’s been on the streets for six years and sober for the last three years.

Staying sober on the streets is nearly impossible. I have huge respect for Tony for living on the streets and going through methadone maintenance to get off opioids.

I met Tony through Denver Day Works which is a low-barrier work experience program for homeless people or those who may be at risk of homelessness.

It’s great that Tony has now a purpose and is receiving an income but six years on the streets is far too long. He’s really trying but without a path to housing, Tony will remain on the streets living in a tent. That’ where you come in.

Your voice can help end homelessness. If we do not fix the affordable housing crisis, homelessness will continue to get worse. Click here to tweet, email, call, or Facebook your federal and state legislators to tell them ending homelessness and creating more affordable housing is a priority to you.
