Where can homeless people go when they need a pair of dry socks or a pair of shoes, a piece of twine to tie something together, a tool to repair their bicycle, or help getting a new ID? One place to go in Corvallis is Project Action, housed in the Corvallis Daytime Drop-in Center. In this episode of Local Folks Podcast we meet Rick, manager of Project Action. Rick was homeless for a number of years, and knows first-hand what it takes to make the journey from being homeless to directing Project Action and living in his own apartment. We talked about how he became homeless, why he decided to change his life, and what he has learned about himself and helping others from his work at the CDDC.
