  1. The homeless situation in Passaic is truly ridiculous. I know…I was a part of it. Thanks to the Passaic Police, God bless them, I am in a place today that I never dreamed I would ever see again. I am living the life of a productive citizen. You see, I lived on the streets of Passaic. Mary was a friend to my brother, who was also homeless. The three of us really did give Passaic a name. I was not much different than Mary. Irefused to go to a shelter,but not out of fear of getting robbed, I couldn’t do the curfew or the abstaining from drug use. I lived like this for over 8 years, sleeping indoors only when I would get locked up for loitering, panhandling drug paraphernalia…you get the idea. The last time they took me away was two years ago, and after getting out of jail I said “no more”. As I said, that was 2 years ago, and through help from the Eva’s Programs and then going to the Veteran’s Administration, (yes, I am a veteran), I am now living life…not a death sentence as a junkie any more. I have gone through a wonderful metamorphic change of mind, body and soul. I have 2 years clean and am here to tell everybody that there is a better way…IF YOU WANT IT!!!
