After being in prison for 12 years, there was nothing for me. I had made plans and came out with $2,500, but made a bad investment in myself that didn’t work out. When I got a job, what little benefits I had were taken; it was a Catch 22. Then in April 2012, I became homeless.

People tend to treat you poorly when they shouldn’t. There’s a special talent to surviving on $203 a month and still maintain some realm of dignity. It takes a lot of suffering. As much as I’d like to say something negative about Listening House, without it we’d be out of luck. So, I’m grateful for it.

This Campaign has ended. No more pledges can be made.
