We're Here To Help Bob, But Will He Accept It In Time?
We promised to return with a lawyer to help, and this is what happened next...
We've been back every day since we first met Bob on the sidewalk of Penn Avenue at 16th Street in Pittsburgh. During my first conversation with Bob, he was reluctant to accept any kind of help, but did say he could use a lawyer.
So we're back again, and with me this time is Bruce Gelman. He's ready and willing to work with Bob to get his government benefits. Here's how their conversation went:
The clock is not on Bob's side here. We really want to get him off the streets and into a safe, stable place. So far he isn't willing to go there, but we're hoping that will change and soon.
WATCH PREVIOUS STORIES ON BOB (BELOW)
He doesn't trust people and conversations are difficult. Watch and see why there is definitely hope.
In just a couple of days, the City of Pittsburgh is planning to clear Bob's belongings off of the sidewalk. The piles have grown to several feet high since Bob started amassing his things there about a year ago.
We'll be back with Bob again on Monday (Oct 12th), along with our friend Bruce Gelman and his team.
