Finding a job toughest for the homeless

By

During these tough economic times no one understands how hard it is to find a job more than a man who is homeless and in search of one. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Katiana Krawchenko brings us the story of a man from Orlando who lost his job and home, and had to give up most of his possessions because they just couldn’t fit on the Greyhound bus.  He was heading to Gainesville to look for a new start. Unlike he’d hoped, his new address is Saint Francis House for the Homeless and Hungry.
