About This Project

Bernard came to know about One Step Away from a vendor at a Chosen 300, an organization on Spring Garden Street that provides meals to homeless men. He became a vendor in October 2014 and has since rented an apartment with his earnings from vending One Step Away at 18th & Walnut Street. “One Step Away keeps the roof over my head and provides me with the means to support myself. I thank my many supporters who give unselfishly. I am very grateful because before One Step Away I was a drug addict, but I have been clean for 12 years. I want to thank all who give and those who encourage me daily to keep working. God bless you.”
