Her Home-Cooked Meals Changed a Homeless Man’s Life Forever
Yelitza Castro of Charlotte, North Carolina has been cooking meals for the homeless since 2010. In this touching StoryCorps animation, her friend Willie David reminisces about his first meal with her six years ago when he was homeless. He explains how that meal boosted his confidence and helped him get his own place to live. The best part is, he’s continued to have dinners with Yelitza ever since. “You didn’t make us feel homeless,” Willie tells her. The good feeling goes both ways: Yelitza says Willie and the men at the shelter are now her family.
