For the last 23 years, 74-year-old Charles “Charlie” Scott Dunaway has been living on the streets or in low-income housing in New York City. He is unable to read or write, and a heart condition cost him his job at Carnegie Deli over two decades ago. Since he doesn’t make enough money from Social Security to afford his low-income housing, Charlie is forced to panhandle near Times Square. Despite his situation, he credits his faith for keeping him alive and motivated.
