Walking with Giant

One man’s battle with homelessness and debilitating illness

(2/8/65 – 9/2/14) Meet Matthew Robert Barrett, appropriately nicknamed Giant by his friends not just for his grand stature but for meeting a hard life head-on and being dubbed a big inspiration to all those who have come to know him.

Matt was a 3-year resident at Tent City 3.
