News-Editorial: PHOTO STORY: Homeless: homewalkin

At 33, Chris Tuliano is homeless.  Here, he makes his way to a camp in the woods that he shares with his step-father, Bobby Hyers, 47.  Alcoholism is the main reason the pair are homeless.  They are part of a rising number of homeless in the Vero Beach area.  Due to the warm weather, the homeless are able to live outside year-round.  There are women who also live in the woods and families that live in their cars.  And, for a few who have chosen a harder path, there has been success and a way out of their despair.
