Portraits of Homelessness

Photos and stories of men who are homeless

I was the oldest son of 10 kids. I heard a lot of abuse in my family. After my dad died, my mom couldn’t afford all us kids, so she pushed
me out.

When I got out of prison after 25 years, no one was happy to see me. I didn’t feel wanted by family.

I’d like to part of a community, a neighborhood, a church. I’d like to be a citizen, pay my bills, enjoy life, own or build my own home, have a few friends, maybe get married again.
