David Alston has struggled to make ends meet. He was a hard working man, until he fell on hard times a few years ago.
“I lost my employment. I was with CMH part time,” said Alston.
There are days where it’s hard to even get a meal. But he finds solace at My Brother’s Keeper: A homeless shelter for Men and Veterans.
” I love Brother’s Keepers here. Their doors are always open to people that’s considerate,” said Alston.
Charles McGee is a shelter adviser at My Brother’s Keeper. He says when they run out of room, it breaks his heart to turn people away.
