Description:

Chris Mitchell, who found himself homeless after a divorce, talks about what it was like sleeping on the street for the first time and the hurdles that keep people homeless. Through his experience of being homeless, he met people who introduced him to religion and he developed a strong faith that God is looking out for him. Spurred on by his spirituality and his desire to help others who are experiencing what he went through, he has found ways to help other homeless people. He talks about working with the homeless organizations BOHO (Boulder Outreach for Homeless Overflow) and FEED (Friends Encouraging Eating Daily). He also describes a trip to Haiti that had a transformational effect on him.
