On this episode of 'Homeless in San Diego: Real People, Real Stories,' host Greg Anglea, CEO of Interfaith Community Services, welcomes Michael Williams, a published author and formerly homeless Marine Corps veteran.
The two discuss what life was like for Michael before he ended up on the streets - a successful man, who not only was a consultant in the performing arts industry for 10 years, but also has a degree in economics and served his country as a Marine Corp Infantry Officer. But then he got sick. He had to sell his home, goods, and eventually his car just to get by, until he was able to receive help at Interfaith. Michael makes a point to express his gratitude for the donors who support Interfaith, who ultimately made it possible for him to regain his self-sufficiency.
