News Talk Online June 9, 2009: Jeff The Homeless Guy

We've been talking quite often on News Talk Online on Paltalk.com about homelessness in the United States. We've had shows about the new homeless. And about homeless veterans.

Today we had as our guest a homeless man. Jeff Willoughby is 54 and has been homeless for seven years. He lives in a parking lot in Simi Valley, California.

Gary , this was an interesting interview , with Jeff. People now , those who have not before. put a face and history to someone like them perhaps, who has found themselves homeless due to circumstances beyond their control,
It is easy for us to be judgemental re: Jeff It does seem that a pattern is there and he has continued in this lifestyle for 7 years, when there were many opportunities to pursue to return to his former lifestyle. It was very heart warming to see the people who came forward with the offer of help, and interest in Jeff Maybe a follow up interview could be done in another month, Many young families are also finding themselves in similaR similar situations. The face of homelessness is us,Are we really aware of what is happening around us , and do we really care, If not-- why not? Jamie_38
