I met Vernon in Hollywood. He survives on the kindness of others. Tragically, his fiancé passed away before they could get married. The funeral took all of Vernon’s money so he is out on the streets until he gets his next disability check.

At only $839 a month income it is nearly impossible to secure stable housing.

Vernon’s story is not an easy one. But rarely is there a happy ending on the streets unless people just like you step up to help.
