Meet Bob Sweeney Homeless Stats Media Kit Books Dallas LIFE

"Homelessness can generally be attributed to one or more of the five life issues: addiction, alcoholism, finances, relationships, and mental illness.


Where society may judge those who are homeless, we should not. We should come alongside and help anyone start a new, healthy journey to recovery."
