Wvlf

When I asked Wvlf if he is on Facebook, he pulled out his phone and added me right one the spot and to message me. This interview is a little old. I found a hard drive that I must have misplaced. Interesting that just this week, Wvlf messaged me on Facebook asking when I will be returning to St Louis.

The memory I cherish about first meeting Wvlf was a Facebook exchange we had while I was shopping in Walmart. It had rained really bad and of few of the tents in their tent camp were in really bad condition with many holes. Via social media and all of your help, we raised money to buy new tents and campaign gear. I would send a photo of a tent or a camping stove to Wvlf for approval.

He would often instruct me not to purchase the most expensive items and just get what they need. Wvlf did get into an apartment but he is back outside. It’s really awesome when a homeless person gets placed into housing but in many communities, there is a high percentage of people to go back to the streets!
