I'm Dane Rose and started this project because I was tired of feeling divided and unhappy seeing a growing number of homeless people in my town who I did not know how to respond to. Conflicting stories and experience about giving money to people with addictions, not wanting to incentivize begging over working and yet knowing that no one who had a great life available to them would choose being on
the streets and social shame left me wanting to learn more. Since it is a heck of a lot of work to find out what's going on, I decided to share my journey with everyone who wants to follow along.
