At Health Care for the Homeless, Armstead Hetherington is a bit of a celebrity. On any given day, you’ll find him chatting or laughing with staff and clients or participating in one of several advocacy groups. His big smile and bright eyes make him a draw in any crowd.

Donnell Gamble never knew his birth parents, but for most of his young years he knew stability. Then one day it was gone. Donnell grew up in the foster system until he was 8, when he was adopted.

I’m going to continue to look for a job, I’m 47 years old.
