Wisconsin bus driver helps homeless man get back on his feet

A bus driver in Milwaukee is being honored for helping out a homeless man. Natalie Barns happened to strike up a conversation with the man and learned that his house had been condemned. He had been homeless for a week.

Not only did she let the man stay on her bus through her shift, but she also offered to buy him dinner and anything he needed from the Dollar Store.

Barnes also connected him with those who could find him a home.

"This is my distant family I see every day and he needed help, so I felt like I had to help him. I couldn't go home to my family knowing he had nowhere to go at night, so I had a special friend who I had to call on for help and he was able to do that for us,” she said.
