The Book — Gotta Find a Home: Conversations With Street People

Gotta Find a Home: Conversations with Street People will be available by June 1st! I can’t tell you what a joy it has been to work with author/blogger, Dennis Cardiff. The man has infinite patience and kindness. His collection of conversations with the homeless in his neighborhood reads like a novel, but is factual in content (names and locations have been changed).

Dennis stops by to visit with the people you will meet in this book almost every morning and every afternoon. They have, in his words, “become like family.” He chronicles their ups and downs and everyday happenings. As you turn the pages, you never know what is going to happen next.

I hope you all will join Dennis on this enlightening and heartwarming journey through the world of the people we so often ignore or write off as hopeless cases. You will grow to love them, and some of them you will not like very much, but you will find that at the core, these street people are human beings who deserve to be treated as such. They love and lose, just as we all do. They struggle to survive in a world that is often very much against them. But most of all, the characters in this book are family to one another.

    Simply had to share this blog post from a couple of Fridays ago, about a health ministry here in Chicago. Since this is National Nursing Week, I really want to lift up all nurses, nationwide, including the nurses I know! @chaplaineliza
