Richard Hutchins Story
Richard has been homeless for over 6 years, but his story begins as a child. His dad left when he was young and his mom was never around. He ended up in foster care with basically nothing. He hated his family so much that he decided to start using a fake name – a small detail, yet extremely important part of the story.
As a teenager, he started to get involved with the wrong crowd because he really had nowhere else to go. Growing up in Georgia as a young black man in the 60s was not easy, and he finally found a place where he felt like he belonged.
While the crowd he was rolling with allowed him to make money, drive nice cars, and feel like he made something of himself, it also is the reason he ended up in prison many times throughout his life for white-collar crime. As he went through life, every time he fell down he had nothing to go back to. No family or real friends.
He found that when you have nothing and are down, people will only listen to you if your makeup lies and tell them things they might be interested in.
