“Gotta Find a Home- Conversations With Street People” by Dennis Cardiff

cover buyTelling The Stories of Those Too Often Ignored

Dennis Cardiff has been involved with street people since 2010, when he began to reach out, on his own, to some of the people without homes who he encountered in his daily life. In his new book, he documents conversations he’s had with them over the past 4 years and, in the process, gives those who are often robbed of their humanity a human face.  Written in diary form by month, and including some of Cardiff’s own poetry, the author chronicles the lives of people who are often ignored, feared or reviled. About this project, Cardiff says,

“Writing about the homeless and helping the homeless, has given my life a purpose that it didn’t have before. Documenting their stories will, I hope, introduce them to the public in a non-threatening way. Some panhandlers look intimidating, but that disappears when one sees them laugh.”

All proceeds from the book are donated to Ottawa Inner City Ministries. Donations may be made directly by visiting: CHlogo-2

  1. Hi Dennis, Your work is a worthy mission, giving a voice to those who have none, and putting a face to those most people ignore. I may have mentioned to you that I run with Back on My Feet in Philadelphia, a running program for formerly homeless people who are now living in a shelter. What I’ve found in conversation with the homeless stories of courage, strength and resilience. The work is so rewarding I often wonder who is benefiting from my volunteering, the shelter residents or me.
