In 2016, I'll be randomly choosing a homeless person to treat to lunch each week.
In this week's 'Homeless in the City,' I was led to a man named Mark. Mark has been homeless for three years. Before homelessness, he was living with his mother, but she abruptly decided to move back to their hometown of New Orleans. Due to financial situations at the time, Mark was unable to go and found himself homeless. He severely injured his knee running from a dog one night and now walks with a walker. Due to his injury and inability to afford medical care, he is unable to work.
He sleeps on any sidewalk that he can find. However, he says police run him off in the middle of the night most times.
We dined at Burger King in Newport News, VA.
God blews you, Mark.
