Ian's priority is finding a permanent place to live.He has been homeless for about 3 months. He is finding this time of year particularly tough because it is the anniversary of his wife's death. They had been married for 43 years. He was a pro football player when he was young and later worked as an appliance technician for 35 years.

Ian says "My family wants nothing to do with me." He was more than willing to participate in this project and any other media interviews that would benefit the homeless in the community. He could use a winter coat, size large, a backpack, bus tickets and a phone card.

He thanked me very much. It was a pleasure to meet and chat with this individual.
