Perry is a homeless man in SE Portland. He's homeless by choice; he sold his house to the garbage company and has lived outside ever since. Perry told me, "I gotta stay sober, gotta stay clean. The minute people smell alcohol on your breath or think you're high, they judge you and start treating you differently". You wouldn't guess he's homeless by his appearance. Perry is friendly, clean, and in great shape. along w/ trash pickup and other help around the neighborhood, Perry keeps a garden in the Sellwood Community Garden.
Portland Metro (includes Multnomah, Clackamas, Washington counties)
