Episode 06: Terence Lester with Love Beyond Walls - Atlanta, GA
In 2013, Terence Lester took to the streets and embarked on life as a homeless person for one month. During this time, he experienced a taste of what it was like to be put out of shelters, to sleep under bridges, eat handouts, to beg for money, be expelled from restaurants, and stay awake for hours in discomfort. While some criticized his decision, he felt it was critical to walk in the shoes of those experiencing homelessness in order to understand how to better serve people through his organization, Love Beyond Walls.
In this episode, Bob Dalton interviews Terence on what he learned from his time on the streets, the importance of caring for yourself as a nonprofit leader, and breaking down stereotypes we have of one another.
