Positive Thanksgiving Story: Homeless Man Overcomes Alcohol - Sober 3-years and Calls Murfreesboro Home

  Email   Print
The homeless population is increasing greatly in Murfreesboro. The Murfreesboro Homeless Task Force meets on the Third Thursday of each month in room 218 of the City Hall.

Note: Below this post, feel free to comment on your success story below to give others encouragement or praise... Positive words are helpful during the holiday period which can be lonely for some. 

During this holiday season, many residents are facing a struggle with alcohol addiction. We spoke to one local resident who was living in Georgia about three years ago when he hit what he called “Bottom.” Perhaps his story can help you or a loved one this Thanksgiving...


That was Salvation Army Family Store Manager Mark Sheridan. He told us that when he hit bottom in 2010, he was homeless.

As you have probably seen around Rutherford County, the Salvation Army is in the midst of their annual kettle campaign. The campaign helps to raise money to support programs that help out local residents on a daily basis. Residents like Mark, who runs the local Salvation Army store at 125 S. Front Street in Murfreesboro.
