He Was Homeless And Would Panhandle Outside A Steakhouse. Now He Works There.

Posted: Apr 29, 2021

Kenneth Smith was evicted from his apartment about four years ago and became homeless.

He spent his days panhandling in Fort Worth, hoping to collect enough money to get a motel room for about $55 a night. He often felt like giving up on life.

“I was feeling hopeless without a job,” said Smith, 50.

At the end of last year, he discovered comfortable outdoor seating at an Outback Steakhouse that was a short bus ride from his motel, and he started hanging out there. As customers came out of the restaurant, Smith would hold out his hand, asking for change or anything that would help him get something to eat.

One day, about two weeks after he’d found the comfortable chairs at Outback, Smith fell asleep in one of them. A woman woke him up with a tap on the shoulder.

“Are you all right?” he recalled her asking.
