Home   Profile   Mike


Mike is over 65 years old and worked as a self-employed repairman most of his career. When the recession hit, he could no longer make a living. His situation is further compounded because he has limited use of one arm due to childhood polio. These days he finds himself playing music on street corners for extra cash. Mike sleeps on the floor of a mobile home in exchange for providing care for the owner who suffers from major medical problems. Mike has been coming to ODB for over eight years. When asked how ODB helps him, Mike responded, “You folks at ODB are keeping me alive. You are blessed. I lie awake some nights wondering what I would do if you were not here. I pray for you.”
