Abdi is currently staying at https://www.cctwincities.org/locations/higher-ground-saint-paul/, Higher Ground Shelter in St. Paul, and working security for a local agency. Abdi is a big-hearted, intelligent, and wonderful young man who entered our office with a backpack full of books and a desire to be of use in this world. We helped him out with a bus pass, shoes, and work clothes.
In a thank you note, he said, “You may never know how much your actions affect the stranger that you may never meet. I know how hollow that sounds and I am truly sorry that I can’t give you a hug and tell you how thankful I am for your kind action.”
