Finding Employment And Self-Worth

When you see a homeless man sitting on the side of the street begging for money, you feel bad for them, but that doesn’t mean you always take out your wallet to help. Most would simply walk by, even if they could spare some change.

One woman - Cesia Abigail Baires - changed the game when it came to helping out the homeless.

Three years ago a homeless man named Marcus walked into Abi’s Cafe in Minneapolis. He looked the cafe’s owner, Cesia, right in the eye and asked for money. “Why don’t you have a job,” she answered, adding, “You know nothing is given to me for free right?”

The homeless man told Cesia that a job was what he wanted most in the world. But due to his criminal record, scoring a job had proved impossible for him and he’d been forced to retreat to a life in the streets.

Marcus’s story hit Cesia right in the chest — and she immediately decided to put her money where her mouth is.
