I'm looking forward to participating in the NYC Five boro bike tour event 5/7/17 (through Bronxworks) and to give back to the less fortunate, especially the Homeless. I can relate having been in the shoes of a homeless/displaced person having resided/grew up in the Bronx during the late 1970's early 1980's and having been "burned out" three times before age 10. I've never forgotten those moments (losses) yet and still I look at moments and experiences as such as trials and tribulations which have helped build character and foster a strong sense of resilence within me. That being said, for me, seeing families especially children overcome homelessness everyday is rewarding. Seeing children and families cope/manage while in Shelter (while being "homeless") is even more rewarding because that is the real challenge!!!
In my experience working with homeless children and families most don't look at "hand outs" as hand outs but more so as a "hand up"...
