I was asked by St. Vincent De Paul to be a part of the Profiles on Poverty Summit and Exhibition. The main object of this summit is to make people aware of the millions of Georgians who are homeless or in a state of poverty. I partnered with local non-profit "Daybreak", who provides meals, education, and a wealth of resources for their participants who are currently homeless.


Today I still choose to profile those who are less fortunate.

"I pretty much put myself in the situation I’m in today. When I was young I got on drugs and ruined everything. If I could tell youngsters one thing its leave alcohol and drugs alone. I recently gave all of that up and now I am doing a little bit better."

"I really never had much education and couldn’t read. I worked at Cagle’s when I was younger and caught chickens. I’m disabled so it’s a lot harder to find work. But regardless, I feel much better about myself now having the ability to read."

"I’ve been on the street since 2012 after being released from prison. I lost my parents while I was in jail. It’s hard not trying to revert back to things that you used to have to do to make it.

"I lost my job with Purdue Chicken due to pneumonia. I will work but I just haven’t been able to find anything. I’m just glad to be alive even though some nights, I have to sleep in the cold but the Good Lord wakes me every day."

"I served my country and now it seems as if my own country has turned its back on me . I feel as if there just aren't enough programs that provide enough assistance to help those less fortunate get back on their feet."
