Serving the terminally  ill  homeless

disable and homeless in sacramento david whitworths story

Just before Christmas, I met with several homeless people at Loaves & Fishes who agreed to be interviewed on camera. They told us about the physical and emotional pain of living day to day on the streets of Sacramento.

We begin with David Whitworth who was recently attacked and left paralyzed on one side of his body. Ironically, he can get in-home care, except for the fact that he has no home. As you’ll see in this video, he gets very emotional about issues that affect all human beings. He accepts death and dying as a natural process, but makes a heartfelt plea to viewers to show compassion to people who have no where to go when their time is up.

Please watch this 2-minute video, share it with others, and tell us your thoughts. I would like to thank UC Davis Health for sponsoring this project.
