When you think of a homeless person holding a piece of cardboard, what do you imagine that sign says?

If you got to know the person behind the sign, you might just be surprised at what you see. 

The heartbreaking stories written on these cardboard squares reveal some truths about homelessness. 

  • It can happen to anybody

  • Some folks with college degrees are homeless

  • Medical problems can put you on the street

  • Some homeless people DO have a job

  • Domestic violence can cause homelessness

So … is it time to rethink what it means to be homeless?
