Steven is in his 70s and has been homeless for 15 years. He’s been disabled since he got in a car accident years ago. He does have an income from Social Security, but it’s not enough to pay for rent, so he sleeps on the streets.
“I’m stuck and I’m tired,” he said.
Sleeping on the hard ground is tough on him, but even worse is the danger he faces.
Forced to sleep outside, Steven has been woken up by people threatening to kill him.
“There are some crazy people out there,” he said. Steven came to Cityteam to eat and pick out a fresh change of clothes. He especially appreciated the volunteer who served the meal.
“He just asked me if I wanted a cupcake,” said Steven with a grin. “I ate two! I love Cityteam and how they help me.”
