Allen was 51 when he ended up homeless. It was a complete shock to him.
“I’d seen people who were homeless,” he says. “But I’d never experienced it.”
Hunger became a physical pain and one of Allen’s biggest concerns. He had no idea how to survive on the streets. Having to constantly search for shelter, worried about his personal safety. He was never able to live, just survive. It was too much to bear.
“I’d had nutritious food most of my life. Those nights without were just horrible,” Allen remembers, feeling hopeless. “I was tired, I was hungry. I said, ‘I can’t do this anymore.’”
When he heard about CityTeam, he knew it was where he needed to go. As soon as he walked in, the generosity of friends like you blew him away. At CityTeam Allen experienced compassionate help that is helping him change his life.
Now, Allen is in our program and is thriving. He works in our pantry where he sees food fly off the shelves every day, being given to people who are hungry and on the street.
Allen was at his lowest point before he found CityTeam. Friends like you provided the meals and hope he needed to get off the street and change his life.
