I’m from Kentucky. My roommate threw me out an I became homeless. 2 months ago. I came out here to meet somebody and I don’t know where he’s at. I had a job at a factory, I was making 15-16 dollars an hour. But I lost my job.
I survive every day. I’m lucky I’m alive. This is not by choice. It’s my first time doing this. I’m 46 years old.
Homelessness in America:
Not enough services for homeless people. Not all states have programs. This one does.
I have a few friends, yes.
What is home for you?
A roof over my head. A job. I just want to make enough money to move back to Kentucky. I don’t beg people for anything. If they wanna help, they help. It’s not easy, you just gotta survive. Gotta have patience. That’s about it. The only thing I don’t like is taking money from people. But I gotta survive some way. Just gotta learn how to survive.
