An expensive but life-saving haven where rock-bottom addicts can finally sleep in a bed and eat something other than corn chips. Five percent of these regain their freedom, health, families, homes, jobs, and drivers licence by learning to change.

An incredibly funny, Los Angeles writer known as "the prophet of skid row." Bukowski published thousands of poems, hundreds of short stories, and six novels. His simple writing style is often imitated and centers on drinking, whores, and playing the horses. Bukowski spent many years drifing across the USA in a drunken haze, working crap jobs, fighting in bars, and living in flop houses. Later, he returned to LA, worked at the Post Office, played the horses, and started writing. He wrote the autobiographical movie "Barfly" staring Mickey Rourke and Faye Dunaway.
"...well, I wasn't quite a bum. I had a library card and I checked books in and out, large stacks of them, always taking the limit allowed..."--Charles Bukowski, The Burning of the Dream.

Located on the southern tip of Lake Michigan, Chicago has an incredible skyline. Chicago is very culturally diverse and has awesome pizza, interesting museums, beautiful parks, blues clubs, and a strong theatre scene too. All four seasons are enjoyed in Chicago, but the summers can get intencely hot and the winters bone-chilling cold. The "hawk" (forceful wind) blowing off Lake Michigan in the winter toughens-up the residents there.
