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?

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! Wonderfully sunny day here in Nashville.
I saw something that I know happens alot, but, it still bothered me yesterday.
A young woman pushing a baby in a stroller was looking for help getting home to Minnesota. I directed her to a couple of places I felt would help her. It was so sad. SHe was probably mid 20s , her baby was 17 months. She was in a local homeless shelter and working, when the babysitting service that was reccomended to her went AWOL. She lost her job, because she could find no place to leave her baby. I thought about her and the baby all night. I wish them well.
People don't realize the makeup of the homeless population.
I have some more to post today, but I need to check on a job. I hope I can make it back later.
Have a wonderful day everyone
