This 50 year old man Chris worked for “Right Side UP!” one Sunday in Colorado Springs. He allowed me to do this interview about what goes on with the homeless. Chris has been homeless for 7 months. He has filed for disability and says that quite a few homeless are pending disability. (which takes about 5-7 years to acquire). He also said he is planning the get a apartment with his boyfriend. They are just waiting for it to go through.
Chris discussed the fact that the bartering is alive and well in the homeless community. Money is hard to come by so the homeless barter a lot.
He said his church is the Street Church that comes to the park every Sunday night to feed everyone a fantastic meal, and give them a sermon. He was grateful for the church. He also carries a bible with him at all times.
