“I can’t even remember not being hungry.”     “I always made sure my kids had something to eat. Usually I didn’t.”     “I had no idea that was the day I’d lose my job.”     “I took a bus for 3 days just to get here. To get help.”     “I slept in my car. Then my car was towed. ”

Homeless, Hungry and Hopeless

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.

I asked other homeless people, ‘Where do you get food? Is there any place to stay?” Allen 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. I came here and I was amazed, Allen says. Homeless individuals become guests who come in and get meals.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.
