Years ago on the streets of Seattle, Washington, our family met a homeless man. After several encounters, Hayden became a family friend and an invaluable part of our lives. We shared in his joys and sorrows as he attempted to turn his life around. A stubborn man, Hayden refused to seek the support of local homeless agencies. Sadly, one day he was found dead in a cheap hotel outside the city. Hayden is forever etched on our hearts and minds and his memory compels us to fight against homelessness.
