Ending homelessness: All it takes is love and a mission

June 7, 2023
I was working in London and came across this homeless man on the street.  As I went to take this photograph to raise the plight of the homeless, his dog looked right at me with such sorrowful eyes.  It was then that I noticed the larger dog, curled up beside him.  I went to a local store, bought some dog food and him a BK Meal and drink.  Since then, each year, rather than buying Christmas cards for family and friends, I always donate enough money to give a homeless person a shower, clothes and cooked meal and a place to stay on Christmas Day, via the UK charity, Crisis.

Deb Martinez and her staff at Mission of Love Charities help house the homeless and find jobs for the unemployed. They’ve had lots of success. There’s Terion Laney, who showed up at the mission headquarters in Capitol Heights, Md., two years ago, suffering from amnesia. He didn’t even know his name. He’d been homeless in the D.C. area for five years, sleeping in cars and temporary shelters.
