John, a homeless man, sleeps amid piles of trash underneath the Chestnut Street bridge in Philadelphia, PA., on April 7, 2005. John keeps his food in bags on the wall so that rats can't reach them. John talked with Outreach Workers Sam Santiago (cq) and Lou Barnett (cq) and was eventually persuaded to leave his place underneath the bridge and enter the shelter system. Philadelphia has become a model for other metro areas in how to deal with the issue of chronic homelessness. (CHRIS SCHNEIDER/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS) **Sam Santiago (cq), Lou Barnett (cq)
