It is NEVER too late to achieve your dreams. Don’t stress about the future. Right here, right now, you’re doing the very best you can. 

Officially homeless. Mom kicked me out last night. Step-dad assaulted me. Have no money, no food, no water. Have my dog with me. Probably going to die cause no one is helping me. Can you get any of my stuff from the house, so fucked. If there’s anyone in Tampa area that can help me, please reach out. I’m desperate.

hi so if anyone in the minneapolis-saint paul area wants to help an autistic nonbinary person avoid homelessness please let me know. i’m going to need a place to stay in about a month.

even if it’s just a couch or a closet or something, it’s better than being out on the street.

i probably wouldn’t even be around most of the time, honestly. i mostly just need a safe place to sleep at night.

i’d be able to pay a small amount of rent if you needed—i have a (part-time) job but i don’t make much—and i could help out with things around the house if you wanted. i’d want to be productive and give something back in some way.

i don’t know what i’m going to do…

Robin Hood restaurant in Madrid, Spain, isn’t your average restaurant. Sure, it may be your average restaurant for breakfast and lunch daily but during evenings, the restaurant closes to regular paying customers and only caters to the homeless. Owned by 80-year-old Rev. Angel Garcia Rodriguez, the restaurant serves restaurant-quality meals to those who are down on their luck. “To get served by a waiter wearing a nice uniform and to eat with proper cutlery rather than a plastic fork, is what gives you back some dignity,” he said.

“It’s just hard to believe I get to sit and eat here without paying any money whatsoever. You reach a point when something like this just makes you feel incredible,” said Gian Parlafes, a guest at the restaurant. For regular paying customers, it can be quite difficult to get a table booking because of how popular it has become. Not only are the paying customers getting a wonderful meal but they’re also giving back something to the community.

What kind of world do we live in where people get arrested for being kind???

It doesn’t surprise me. Why would the Government want to feed the people…..It not like its there job to get people homes jobs food. They are too busy helping themselves…..shocking ( sarcasm )

And the only reason they were arrested is because Tampa officials didn’t want a congregation of homeless around for the weekend of the “big game” (the college national championship).

Before you go to sleep tonight, please say a prayer for warmth and for peace of mind and body for those without a home tonight. I think sometimes we forget that there are men, women, and children who don’t share the same luxuries that we are blessed to have…If you’re unable to do anything such as donate to a shelter or do a kind deed for someone on your way home, at least send them a small prayer.
