"We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty." -Mother Teresa . . . . . . . . . . . . . #shljokitzza #nikonphotography #belgradestreets #quote #mariateresa #motherteresa #homeless #homelessman #kalemegdan #knezmihailova #belgradehomeless #nikontop #nikonofficals #dockumentary #documentaryphotography #belgradephoto #belgradestagram

@starbucks clearly these past incidents have taught you nothing and moreover these incidents occur from a culture that stems from the top of the chain. Homelessness and racism are not the same factions and have two very different creations and outcomes - if your company isn't versed enuf to make that distinction then you need to shutter the entire operation and seek self redemption. #shameless #homelessman #racism #starbucks #lostintranslation #dazedandconfused #outoftouch #americanignorance #abc7eyewitness #nbcnews #apnews #nytimes #washingtonpost #reuters #wallstreetjournal

RAY We met the personable and friendly Ray beside the Jeays Street Community Centre run by the Red Cross. My mom asked him if he often receives help from the Red Cross. He replied, “Yeah [they help me with] everything. I haven’t got a home.” However, when my mom asked Ray if he receives any assistance from the government (of Australia), his answer couldn’t have been more different. He angrily responded, “No! No, definitely not! “Then it’s good these people are helping you out”, my mom said. “Yes, they provide you with the necessities”, he replied. “They’re stopping a lot of crime because people steal to survive.” Then, despite the fact that the Centre was only slightly elevated, Ray said, “I gotta go back to town yet, back down the valley where I live. Yeah, I’ve never been here before. But, oh, what a place to come too, all uphill. Oh yeah, it’s a wonder they have oxygen up here, it’s that high.” Laughing, my mom replied, “You’re a funny guy!” To this Ray responded, “Oh, I’m alright. I think I’m happy actually. Yeah, you don’t get anywhere by being sad.” However, Ray’s continence became downcast when my mom asked him if he had any future goals. Looking down at the ground he replied, “No, not really.” When asked if he used to have a job, he said, “Yeah, cable joiner. [I used to] join all the cables up.” “Do you think you might do that job again?”, my mom asked him. He replied, “Well, I could if I wanted to, but I’m retired, yeah.” When I had gotten all the photos I needed I thanked Ray for his time and, shaking his hand, told him goodbye. Ray’s parting words to us were, “Thanks very much. We’ll see ya when we see ya. Have a good trip [back to Canada.]”

Thought at first this was a sad, affectionate tribute to a particular homeless man, now realise it's by @ripartist and versions have been seen in London, Manchester & Rome. Clever & very effective. Spotted April 2018. #homelessman #manchesterstreetart #manchester #northernquarter #stencil #stencilart #ripartist #streetartobsessive #arichheartmaybeunderapoorcoat
It’s amazing to see how compassion and kindness makes all the difference to someone who’s living on the street. . .After making them breakfast, @jayson_conner sits and talks to them for awhile. They light up when offers to get hydrogen peroxide to clean up an infection on Santos’ face. He also check in about where they’ll be staying for the night. . . . #giftsofsobriety #backpacksforthestreet #backpacksforthehomeless #homelessness #homelessman #homelessguy #theyhavefeelings #theyhavefeelingstoo #helpyourcommunity #serioustho #mentalhealthmatters #theymatter . #homelessman #homelessveterans #homelesslife #homelessinamerica #helpingothershelpsyou #homelessness #kindnessmatters #coalitionforthehomeless #livingonthestreets #nychomeless #homeless #homelessman #homelessnyc #homelessshelter #homelessnothopeless #homelessoutreach
This is Miguel, He and his brother are homeless. This morning, I found them huddled together, asleep, trying to stay warm, outside a building across the street from us. . . Their story is so heartbreaking. They immigrated from Guatemala five years ago, in hopes of being able to work and send money back to their mother, who’s raising three girls, alone, since their father was killed. . . There is a silver lining, they say. They have each other. Though last week, Santos had gone to the hospital, and Miguel was so lost, not knowing how to contact him. . . But, today was the first time I’d found them like this, without a place to find shelter and warmth. And, it really affected me. . . I woke Jayson, who made them breakfast and hot cocoa. And, I put together backpacks for them, with food and necessities. . . Two weeks ago, Santos and a bad infection on his nose, and sadly can’t afford to go to the doctor. So, Jayson went to the pharmacy and picked up hydrogen peroxide and over the counter ointments, and then sat with him and cleaned his face. . . This morning, when Jayson saw Santos’ face was looking 50x better, he started to cry. . . If you’re wondering why they aren’t in a shelter, part of it is that they always separate them, and try to bus them to far out places. They are all the family they have. And, I’m my book, that counts for a lot. But, pisses me off, that our system here in NYC feels justified to break up a family, and ship them somewhere, like pariahs or less than human. . . They are truly two very sweet guys, who have fallen on tough times, and desperately in need of compassion. . . They’re also two of the people living on the street who’s stories motivated us to start the Backpacks For The Street project. . . We can do better. We must. . . Please join us in making a difference and effecting change. . . https://backpacksforthestreet.org . And, please, when you see someone who is homeless, remember, their circumstances do not define them or finish their value as human beings. . #homelessness #homelessman #homelessnyc #homelessinamerica #livingonthestreets #timessquarenyc #homelessnyc #helpthoseinneed #havecompassion #onthestreet

Pets are a source of trust and love, and are often the only source of stability that individuals experiencing homeless have. They consider their pets to be their family and their emotional support, and treat them as such. Often times it is the only way that they’ve experienced unconditional love. Unfortunately most shelters, hospitals and agencies prohibit the admittance of non-service animals. We met Renar and his new puppy Foxy last week. She is the sweetest puppy and he treated her like a princess.🐕 #companiondog #homelessinlosangeles #projectropa
To the a-holes on the E train this morning, just because someone is homeless, it DOES NOT give you the right to act superior, or harass and disrespect them. This is Lou, who was minding his own business, not bothering anyone, when two jack-asses in suits got on the train and began to verbally assault him, DEMANDING that Lou give them his seat, telling him that he’s what’s wrong with this country. . . The clincher was when they began threatening to call the police. . . No one said a word. . . So I piped in, and said I was calling the police too. Immediately, these pricks assumed I was backing them up. At which which I looked right st them, and said, “This man has every right to sit there. If you don’t stop harassing him, and back the f**k off, I will call the cops on both of you.’ . . One just kept going, babbling on that being a tax payer gives him the right to a seat over a “homeless freeloader.” . . I could see this was going nowhere. . . I told Lou he was welcome to sit there as long as he wanted, handed him the breakfast sandwich I got on the way to the train, and looked at these mofo’s and said, as a tax payer myself, I hearby give my friend Lou my seat for as long as he wants to sit there. . . Then added, “Be gone before a subway falls on you,” and suggested they change cars. And they did. . . Seriously, I would choose spending a day with Lou over any amount of time with arrogant, bigoted haters who think clothes and make a man. They’re proof, it doesn’t. . We need to be a voice for the Lou's of the world. . . Please join the movement and help us continue to make a difference. . . https://backpacksforthestreet.org/ . . — Jeffrey, Backpacks For The Street . . #homelessness #homelessman #homelessguy #theyhavefeelingstoo #helpyourcommunity #thiscouldbeyou #mentalhealthmatters #theymatter #homelessman #homelessveterans #homelesslife #homelessinamerica #helpingothershelpsyou #homelessness #livingonthestreets #nychomeless #homeless #homelessman #homelessnyc #homelessshelter #homelessnothopeless . #backpacksforthestreet #togetherhelpingothers . . @backpacksforthestreet @jayson_conner @positivelyjeffrey
BARRY “I’m a window tinter”, Barry told my mom and I. “I tint car windows.” “How do you do that?”, my mother asked him. He replied, “Just soapy water and, um, a bit of film … It’s pretty simple. You spray soapy water on, then you roll the film, so that it sticks on. The sticky bits on the back of the film. It’s a good job.” “Does it pay well?”, asked my mom. “Very good!” was his response. Barry went on to tell us that when he was younger he also used to tint the windows in mansions and high-rise buildings. “I’ve never heard of such a job”, exclaimed my mother. “That’s a great job. Good for you.” “You’re the first window tinter that we’ve met!” I chimed in. Laughing, Barry replied, “There’s always a first.” Barry then went on to tell us that he has also been employed as a farmhand. “I drive tractors as a farmhand”, he said, “I drive tractors, forklifts. I’ll get back into it one day.” “Is that a goal in your life?”, my mother asked him. “I definitely want to get back into work. I’m only 39 … I’m still young.” We managed to find Barry with the kind assistance of Micah Projects, an organization in Australia that provides a variety of supports for people experiencing homelessness. When my mom asked Barry if he had received help from Micah Projects, he replied, “Oh year, for sure. They give you housing too, ah? I’m with Micah Projects to get housing. But it might take three years. And I’ve never had a house before, so … [I’ve] never had a place to live before, really, you know? Just traveled, mostly on the streets. As I said I worked on farms too for about 7 years, and I traveled around. I was on the street, but still living in a tent.”
