Terry had a job and an apartment, but he was laid off and soon discovered that unemployment compensation didn’t cover his expenses. “I couldn’t afford to pay rent where I was, and I had no place to go,” he says.
He grabbed as much clothing as he could carry and walked to our Samaritan House Crisis Housing Center, leaving the rest of his belongings outside his apartment. They were stolen before he could get back to retrieve them.
“When I got here, I didn’t have anything,” he says. “But they treated me really well. I ate my meals here, got my laundry done, got clothes, boots, a toothbrush, toothpaste, and razors.”
Paramount Pictures: Coming October 20, 2017
Paramount Pictures on the major motion picture Same Kind of Different as Me opens October 20, 2017. The movie, based on the New York Times best-seller, is the story of a homeless drifter who grew up picking cotton in virtual slavery; an upscale international art dealer accustomed to the world of Armani and Chanel; and a gutsy woman reeling from the wounds of betrayal, who leaned into a dream no novelist would dare to write...except it’s all true.
The movie is painted on the canvas of a gospel rescue mission, with 95 percent of test audiences rating the movie UPBEAT, POSITIVE and APPEALING.
