  1. I am sorry, but I instantly labelled this couple as drug addicts. I haven't finished the video yet, but I instantly started worrying about all the shit in that house they could steal, and sell for drugs!

  2. I think this is great but isn’t the goal to get off of government assistance? Like if they got jobs then they possibility could be making more than what they are getting? I know they have disabilities but a lot of people that work do. Government assistance is for getting you back on your feet. Not to live on. That’s why they lower the amount when you find a job. I’m just curious, if they have been homeless, where was the government assistance checks going to? If they didn’t have a home, or really any bills?

  3. The wealthy live with so much excess that they can live without! And the homeless just want the basics.. which is a mere drop in the bucket of what the rich spend. It doesn't matter the color… help others. Period.

  4. Those two were not homeless. The streets was their home. If two people can't put their heads together and find a way, well then, they get what they get. They would rather have $800 a month in disability, free healthcare and $150 a month worth of food stamps then to get their butt up every morning and go to work. I have no sympathy for them.

  5. She's a certified nurse assistant! Then people say "ohh they're homeless because they want, they're lazy, they don't wanna get education" BEING HOMELESS IS NOT A CHOICE. THEY'RE VICTIMS OF A BROKEN SYSTEM. PERIOD.

  6. Bro that white man met them when he used to smoke crack with them n started inviting them to smoke crack and they gradually moved in with him he prolly making them work and feeding them crack for pay looolll

  7. TERRY JUST WANT GOOD FOR THEM AND HE WANTS THEM TO FIGHT AND BE STRONG AND DONT EXCEPT NO,BUT TERRY MAY NOT UNDERSTAND THAT PART OF THAT WORLD. HES A GREAT MAN,ITS HARD TO LIVE WITH ANYONE FOR THAT LONG KNOW MATTER WHO THEY ARE. TERRY IS A WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL MAN THAT IS JUST INCREDIBLE HUMAN BEING THAT IM GOING TO TRY TO BE.

  8. When you tell the world what they want to hear, you will have lots of friends, but when you tell the world what God wants them to hear, in word or action, you will have very few friends. The millionaire did in action what many don't want to hear/do and so "they" called the police because they are comfortable in ignoring the pain and suffering that sits at their doorstep.

  9. Oh my God. This story touches me so much. This man does something he has never thought of and helps them and is condemned for it? Some call the police because an older couple is sitting on a bench? How can that be. I wish something like that would stop! I don't know racism. I was brought up completely without prejudice and you help everyone if you can. Whether you know whom or not. Responds to everyone as you would want for yourself and your loved ones. Such a strong story! admirable and inspiring. ❤️

  10. I heard about this guy, he lives near me.
    We all have something to give. You don’t have to be a millionaire to be generous. That might mean filling your pocket with quarters so you never have to ignore or lie to another person.

    – It might be not putting your clothes in bins that resell them, take them to a shelter, or religious or spiritual place. Good Will and Out of the Closet is perfect.
    – People literally throw clothes away cause they don’t know the Job center can use them; it might support a working class board member fit into a fancy event.
    – It’s been awhile but I used to bake two pies, literally two turkeys and drop one off the day before a holiday.

    – See the movie “Same Difference As Me”
