Homeless in Seattle has been following Steve’s story since they first met him along the Freemont canal in Seattle. He is one of the many examples of how a willingness to truly “know” an individual can make a difference in your life and the other person’s. You can read the chapters in Steve’s story on Facebook by clicking on each picture in the album posted HERE.
Steve Strukoff showed up today showing off FRONT DOOR KEYS and a smile as wide as the ship canal!
He also came with a letter for all of you, here it is:
“To everyone who’s been following my story, I want to say thank you. Between all the contributions of art materials, clothes, cash, prayers, and most important, love, you’ve all helped to pull me out of a mental state, where no human being should be, and in many cases don’t leave.
Somehow, quite unexpectedly, I was put into a brand new housing facility. I have my own apartment, wow. I’ve been on a pretty rough road for quite a few years.
I moved what few things I have saved (all of my “stuff”) in. I’ve finally found a place, “the” place, that I feel safe. Content is a better word, with all the horrid madness, that has plagued my mind for so long. The soft brown bible that some people from West Virginia sent me looks so beautiful on my new dresser.
The programs (Life) at this housing facility has opened the door to limitless opportunities for me. So let’s just see what I can contribute to this earth.”
