Bob: A Homeless Senior’s Simple Story

Bob is 69 years-old, and homeless! Maybe we are being overly sensitive to our own age and financial situation, but nothing is more bothersome than senior citizen homelessness!
Bob has been on the streets for five years. The night before this interview Bob slept under a bridge.
Overall Bob is happy. He spends his days making new friends while selling Portland’s street paper [streetroots.org].
We all know homelessness is a serious crisis, but we are about to experience a social crisis like no other. The first wave of baby boomers are hitting retirement age at a time when social security is shaking at its roots, when retirement funds do not match the cost of expenses and medical insurance has been emptied.
