"My son is ashamed of me because I'm a drunk... You Can't Blame him really.. I'm not a bad person though."

“My son is ashamed of me because I’m a drunk… You can’t blame him really… I’m not a bad person,” say Bradley Loce, 56, of Rochester, N.Y. Bradley has suffered from alcoholism since his early teens and has struggled with chronic homelessness. He currently lives in the Dorothy Day house which provides a “housing first” solution for people that live on the streets.
