and tell police where your answer it is usually if. you live on a street you know something i must down to change station sometime i live in a change station when you get cold you know but on city got a lot of house and phone list people but the government is not really funding it. no and in a lot of the shelter today be having people rallies down the street because people begin raped and sheltered to get god you gotta sleep with one eye open and one out close i was in a shelter in one town and a gal like right next to me being john a rabid dog jumped in a no stop. in shelters is no good that's why you see a lot of homeless people on the street to feel safe. in c.d.o. you know to make a few i'll die here and pay somebody to let you stay and made it seem that way you know you say i see by about myself you know. i know it's not that much but
1:32 pm
i know you only got one life so i'm going to happen it's going to happen anyway and i just created a lot of don't. i just keep my head up and every day long i got another shot. instead of a file you put your entire yeah and that's. when i grew up here in new york in the fifty's and sixty's for instance there were three soup kitchens in new york down the bowery and one in brooklyn today there are twelve hundred and over eight hundred camp trees and other emergency food programs that's how the need has grown when they first started this soup kitchen in nineteen eighty one or two or three depending on who you ask and it was an epidemic cope almost just in the eighty's you couldn't walk down the street without four people each block asking you for something homelessness was very visible today thirty some odd years later there are
