I am using handup to raise money for food and groceries

About me.

I'm from Houston, Texas. I was born and raised there. There, I used to work for General Electric and appliance tech and I drove 18-wheelers. In California, I was a laborer with Labor Ready. I spend my time reading books, shooting pool, and trying to do productive things to help me focus on life.

My backstory.

I'm homeless, I don't work anymore; I'm living life on the streets.

My goals, moving forward.

I would like to have my own place to live someday. I hope to get a job. And to stay connected to my family. After living life on the streets, you get tired of everything you're doing. You get tired of asking for change. I want to be a responsible adult; I know that's the only way I can move forward in life. It's been a long time since I've been responsible, and I'm very proud of myself because I don't hang in the street anymore. I don't want to carry everything around in a backpack and get wet in the rain. At least now I've got something over my head and I'm doing something productive for myself.

Other things I'd like to share about myself.

My wildest dream: I never thought I'd be a grandfather, but to see my granddaughter for the first time would be one of the greatest things I could ever live to see. They say she looks just like my mother. I want to be the dad that I'm supposed to be. Even though my son has grown up, it's never too late. I want to be one of the greatest grandfathers; it's a special moment to hear "Grandpa," and you can cherish that for the rest of your life.
