With shelter closed, Killeen homeless more visible

Three men are living underneath the Interstate 14 overpass at the intersection of South W.S. Young Drive and East Central Texas Expressway in Killeen.

Two of the men, Richard Alice and Kent Porter, are not Killeen residents but are passing through on their way to another state. Alice said they have been in Killeen for about five months. Alice is an Army veteran and Porter is an Air Force veteran.

Porter told stories of his childhood and both he and Alice said their faith in God is what gets them through.

Porter had high praise for motorists who pass by the busy intersection near the Killeen Mall. He said that the people of Killeen are “beautiful people.” He told a story of a lady who handed them $100 and told them to check in to a local motel to take a shower. Porter also said they strive to help other homeless people whenever they receive excess food or money from passers-by.
