Homeless in One of the Top Places to Live in the U.S.

Liberty was chosen by CNN as one of the top places to live in the U.S.

Today I met a homeless man at a business meeting in Liberty, MO. He didn’t look like your typical homeless person that you see holding a sign asking for food or money. He looked an average guy that you would meet at your church or school. Tony was a medical representative for almost 20 years and was laid off. He didn’t realize that months later after being evicted that he would be homeless.

Tony told the group that there are almost 500 people in Liberty who are homeless. You don’t think of Liberty as having homeless people because its such a middle-class, upscale suburb of Kansas City. In fact, Liberty has been rated by CNN’s Money Magazine as one of the top places to live in the U.S.

Tony was selling discount cards for the Liberty Disaster Relief organization. For every sale, he earns $10. Tony is looking for a job and I hope he finds one soon. He wants to work and its sad that someone who wants to work is homeless. If you have any leads on a job for Tony, let me know. 😀
