Housing Agency and Family Lift Man From Life in the Street
Walking through Pittsburgh International Airport in a retro Steelers jersey recently, Tyrone Taylor looked like just another native son returning home.
The smiles and hugs he exchanged with his two daughters and two grandchildren only added to a scene typical of airports everywhere. But if one listened closely, it was clear this was not a typical reunion.
“Thank you. Thank you for saving my life,” Mr. Taylor, 57, told his younger daughter, Shawnta Taylor, 26, as he embraced her.
Mr. Taylor’s return was the culmination of a 21-year descent into addiction, alcoholism and homelessness that ended only with his daughter’s outreach. (Author)
