From: Sunshine Coast
Thomas dropped out of school in grade 9 and has been on the street for about 20 years.
He had a house once and worked as a roofer, a logger, and a shake cutter. Everything changed after a serious car accident, in which he broke both arms and both legs and was in a wheelchair for a year.
Tom gradually lost everything. He says he needs medical help and can’t get it. He has a fungus under his fingernails and the Doctor gave him penicillin, which he can’t take because he’s allergic to it.
He has filled out a lot of forms for disability and will find out soon if he qualifies for it, if so they will find him a place to live.
