New street outreach helps homeless men find housing

Homeless and living in a well-worn minivan on a shopping center parking lot where he works, Kevin Wolden was dealing with mental health issues stemming from some rough patches in his life.

Reluctant to accept charity, Wolden swallowed his pride and called Sts. Joachim and Ann Care Service in St. Charles for help in getting housing. Andre Wise, a social worker with the agency's new homeless outreach program, set up a time to meet Wolden on the parking lot to assess his situation.
