Cardboard Stories

by
Abby Zimet, staff writer
 
Because "the homeless are people, just like you and I,"  they all have stories to tell. Seeking to humanize those who are too often invisible, the advocacy project Rethink Homelessness, by the Central Florida Commission on Homelessness, asked a group of people living on the mean streets of Orlando, Florida to write down one thing about themselves that might surprise others. The resulting video is stunning - especially in light of their recent study finding that each chronically homeless person costs the community about $30,000 a year. The cost of finding them housing: $10,000. The Commission has ways to help and other videos. Check out what three guys find in two blocks in one day.
