Making a Difference to Homeless


AmeriCorps member Heather Dino at Peer Empowerment Network

There was a homeless individual that had been coming to the center daily to eat and drink coffee. He had no clothes. He really had nothing but the clothes on his back. He didn’t talk much and was not up to par with his hygiene, Although the outside wasn’t pleasant to look at, he always was polite. I started to talk to him and found out he had a daughter that made him sleep on the porch. I took him to ACRP, the assistance office, and the disability office. He is now in a home and on his medication daily. He went from rags to riches!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
