About Homelessness

Back from the Brink of Death

From the Washington Post article: Out Of The Debris, A Survival Story

Photo: Difficult to believe he’s the same man. Danny Glass holds up a photo of him taken just four months ago. He was homeless, living in a tent — and nearly dead.

When we first met Danny Glass, he was sitting in a tent, half-naked, too weak to put on pants.

He knew he was dying.

“Can I ask a favor?” he said to Michael Williamson, the Washington Post photographer with whom I traveled across the country this summer. “Can I use one of those photos for my obituary?”

Read about Danny’s incredible and difficult journey through homelessness.
