Help him smile #Chicago 2013

This young man, like many other long-term homeless people, suffers from mental health issues rather than from drug or alcohol addiction. His name is Herbert, and you'll often find him keeping warm in the foyers at both the State St., as well as Wabash Ave. entrances to T.J.Maxx.

Another place where you will often find Herbert, is sleeping in the bus shelter at State and Madison.

Herbert refuses to accept most help, but he will take food if he's hungry. If you should happen to see him, be sure to offer him something to eat.
