Homeless Nashville

How do you describe being homeless? Growing up in a middle class family, doing all the right things. Then one day, you are on the street.What Happens now?

Name:
Location: Nashville, Tennessee, United States

Now that I am no longer homeless, I still hope to help others. There are a few who truly want off the streets, out of the soup lines. Back to a "normal" way of living. Everyone who is homeless isn't a bum, nor a criminal. There are those that just need a chance. My first day as a homeless person was April 1st, 1997. From then on its been an unreal experience. Not one I would suggest anyone go thru, but one I know I have learned from. I hope in some way this blog helps you, the reader know a little about me. But more important , I hope it helps you understand a little more about homeless people in general.

Good Morning!
Today there is a memorial to the homeless people who have died in the past year on Nashville's streets and to raise awareness of the impact of violence and poor medical care on the homeless.
57 homeless passed away last year here in Nashville. Officials from Metro Nashville,the NAACP, homeless advocates and the homeless of Nashville have gathered for 17 years to remember those that are no longer with us.
The non-profit homeless advocacy group, Homeless Power Project, organizes the memorial service.
Please take the time this weekend, wherever you are, and think about the people you see daily on the streets.
Thank you
