When Real Change vendor Donald Morehead first came to Seattle 17 years ago, he was broke, homeless, had PTSD from a life of trauma and was self-medicating to get through the day.
Within hours of his arrival by Greyhound, a couple of homeless guys pointed Donald to Real Change. He was selling the paper the next day. On his first day, Donald went from having nothing to $40.
He said to himself, “This will work.”
