Hello my Name is... Every person has a story. Do you notice?

“I never thought I’d be homeless,” says Keith Lewis, a resident at the Grant County Rescue Mission. Keith didn’t expect to be spending 6 months at a shelter. He wasn’t an addict and he wasn’t lazy. Keith used to be a hard-working chef in Chicago, IL. He supported his family and lived a “normal” life. However, when the recession hit, Keith lost his job.
