”My name is Sharon and I’m 72 years old. I’ve been homeless for the last 3 weeks. My husband and I lived at a local park for 13 years in our RV. My husband got sick and everything went down from there. After he passed away I couldn’t afford to pay for our RV. This is my first time ever being homeless. I’ve worked and been sober all my life. I just want this situation to turn around, I ask myself why God is putting me through this. I know there is a purpose. I’ve met a lot of people out here that are going through the same thing as me. The hardest part about being homeless is not having anyone to talk to. I love talking to people, I don’t care who they are, and now I can’t get anything from people. People look at you like you are nothing. Please look at us, don’t treat us like we're nothing. You can’t blame all homeless for the actions of some. I’m just going to keep trying and keep trusting in God because that’s all I got.”
All stories always impact me, but Sharon's story really touched me. Please leave some positive words that I can share with her on your behalf
The most challenging thing about being homeless is not having a base or a foundation. All I have is in three bags. When I leave in search of food or work I have to hide my bags in different places, hoping they will be there when I return. My name is Dennis, I am sixty-two years old. Overall I have been homeless for three years, but this time I've been homeless for the last two months. Unless you are really in this situation you don't really know what it's about. People need to have more compassion for others, you don't know what they've gone through.
