The all-volunteer group spent Tuesday night looking for homeless people who needed a helping hand.

Al Raddatz, the nonprofit’s founder and CEO, drove his bus full of supplies and half a dozen volunteers to various spots, where homeless people may be struggling to keep warm.

Their first stop was at the homeless shelter at St. Malachi Church on Cleveland’s West Side. Two dozen homeless men and women streamed out to greet the bus, as volunteers began handing out warm coats and gloves.

Raddatz’s motto: “Nobody should freeze in America.”

But many times, finding the homeless is half the job. Sometimes those who need help the most — don’t seek it out.

“One in five homeless are military,” said Raddatz. “It might be because they’re prideful, or sometimes they don’t want to be up next to other people in a shelter and have them steal their things.”
