Timothy carries all of his belongings after being kicked out of a group home for people will mental illness and substance abuse issues. He said he lost his spot at the facility because he “was questioning their psychotherapy, mostly because I felt like I wasn't getting the therapy that I was voluntarily signed up for. They shifted blame and responsibility to me." He spent the day outside the public library questioning his future. He made a series of phone calls to family, friends and agencies hoping to find a place to stay for the night. "I hate being in this position, you have to ask people for help. Calling my family, it even seems monotonous to me. That's all I do is call them for help," he said. After checking his bank balance he seems even more hopeless.
