Out of the dirt - mud - weather…and with his beautiful daughters.
That is where Richard "Papa Smirf" Cole is today.
Due the the efforts of many people - but mostly The Open Table Crew, Steve Lindsay and Ingrid, Richard is seven months off the streets of Nashville and at home in NY State.
Richard misses his friends in Nashville and likely will come back to visit, but he has traveled an amazing journey from a camp on the Cumberland river - Through detox and rehab - and back with his family.
Life is not easy though, Richard is experiencing the challenges of every day life we all face. Finances - personalities - teenage girls - family…
He is toughing through it - still going to meetings - staying sober and walking the walk.
Lets all keep Richard in our prayers as he continues to adjust.
Thank you all for supporting our cause to help the homeless with their immediate needs and leading them to agencies that can help with their long term needs.
