Interview with Earle Part I
In Part I of our two-part interview, Earle, a Navy veteran and Liberty House graduate-turned-employee, relays the troubled history that led him to Liberty House. Earle, whose name has been changed to protect his privacy, was responsible for the accidental death of a friend nearly thirty years ago. In this episode and the following episode, we hear firsthand how a tragedy can shape the course of one man’s life, but cannot shake his perseverance to find the right direction.

Why Beyond Spare Change?
First, because we believe that stories are the currency of human connection. The sharing of experiences can break down boundaries, forge new paths, and force us to see each other as individuals with complex and varied histories instead of “types” dictated by circumstance.
Second, because anyone who has heard the clink of quarters against pennies, be it in a plastic cup or the bottom of a purse, knows that one has to move beyond spare change to impact chronic homelessness.
Lastly, the show is called Beyond Spare Change out of respect for the work the men and women who have passed through Liberty House have done on themselves and their lives. It’s no mean feat to find work after unemployment and homelessness. It’s no mean feat to struggle with addiction and maintain one’s sobriety. Above all, Beyond Spare Change is dedicated to our hardworking residents.
