prized possession : street family


Thomas is no stranger to the streets. “It’s my home out here,” he explains matter-of-factly. Born and raised in Denver, he’s been exposed to this life since his seventh birthday, when he was taken from his mother. This has been reality for over two thirds of his twenty-two years. It may explains why he prefers to focus on his blessings. “Its only as bad as you make it.” 


Prized Possession: People are more important than material wealth to Thomas. “It don’t matter what you do or don’t have, as long as you have a family. I’ll throw away everything on my trailer if someone needs me.” Having known some of his chosen street family since childhood, Thomas pronounces, “I don’t consider it a crew, I consider these people a family and family takes care of each other.”
