It was day to celebrate! Walter got housing! After 15 years living on the streets of Skid Row, he finally has a place of his own. “The first thing I’m gonna do is put a sign up on the wall that says home sweet home!” he said with excitement. We went to Marie Callender’s restaurant for lunch, and Walter ordered a pot pie, onion rings, and a giant cheesecake with Oreo cookies. “I’m eating my favorite food with my favorite dude!” he said with a laugh. What a wonderful feeling it is to share in someone’s happiness, especially a dear special friend.
People often message me asking how they can donate to support and be a part of what I do. I've never been one to ask for donations, but it definitely comes in handy.
Each person on Skid Row is unique and has their own unique circumstances, so it's hard to anticipate how to address people's needs before I meet them. So having some extra funds gives me more flexibility as to how I can help others.
If you're one of these people who has it in their heart to contribute in this way, this donate button is just a more convenient way to do so. Thank you for your support!
