homeless panhandler. he has a website. (s/ abe hagenston / homeless:27-:30) "being homeless is my business now my business is being homeless." "will work" isn't just a meaningless slogan for hagenston. you can actually hire him for odd jobs on his website. (s/ abe hagenston / homeless:32-:45) "i've done some painting i have taken a a uple various friends of mine out on team jobs i had to do." of course he'll take a donation and yes that means he takes credit cards. he even got the square to take credit cards on the corner but his phone was stolen. (nats) the 42-year-old hagenston has big ideas including an app to weed out those fake panhandlers and a non- profit to benefit all homeless people. (s/ abe hagenston / homeless1:07-1:21) "you take half the adults in america, about 1/2 million people and if those people gave a penny a day for a year, that adad up to 365 million n llars. i would like to see america start granting homeless people a real shot." as he tries to shake off what he thinks was pneumonia abe lives hour by hour depending upon the good nature of detroiters. which usually runs between 20 and 5o bucks a day. (s/ abe hagenston / homeless1:32-1:38) "i'm trying to turn this situation into something that will not only help me but help others." >> the lewis and clark conference
