Chris Sanders

Growing up, I was in a lot of tough situations whether it was being homeless or just needing somebody to talk to – wishing I had a mentor. Once I made it out of homelessness, I set out to find out who is homeless in our community and how I could help. I’m just one person. I don’t have more time than others, but I know that I can help. It’s like if you’re walking and you see a hole in the ground, you can’t just walk by. You know that if you don’t cover that hole with a lid, somebody is going to fall through.
