$50 = A Warm Night Out of the Cold

“Get a job, you loser!”

I still remember how it felt when an angry man hurled this insult at me, as I got ready to sleep in my car for the night.

The truth was, I already had a job. I just didn’t have a place to stay.

Homelessness isn’t what some people think. We’re not lazy, and we don’t deserve this – no one does. Being homeless is not who I am. It’s where I am, right now.

Today, you can provide a warm night out of the cold for guys like me, along with 24/7 care and support to help us get healthier and housed, and exit the cycle of homelessness for good. Will you rise to the challenge, and help men like me today?
