When I first met Richard in November of 2013, he was homeless and jobless. He did own a car and when he could not find temporary housing, this is where he slept. At times, Richard would need to pawn possessions, like his guitar, to earn gas money so that he could drive himself to meet his tutor. Richard read below the first grade level.
