Can’t Save Them All:
Based on a True Story of Drug Addiction, Suicide,
and Tragedy at a City Homeless Shelter
Let your love be the kindness to make a homeless person believe that a soul needs something more than just four walls and a ceiling. – Munia Khan
Can’t Save Them All pulls back the curtains on the author’s shocking and tragic three-year journey as an addiction counselor and mental health worker in an overbooked and understaffed city homeless shelter. This unforgettable memoir takes a harrowing look into the trauma and life-altering guilt endured by addiction counselors and mental health workers, to make as much difference as possible with homeless people and their families.
The stark and painful true accounts of senseless overdose, abuse and death will open your eyes to a world all too often ignored and swept under the rug. Put names to lost ones and allow the painful reflection to resonate long after the last pages, but don’t forget to savor the slivers of hope that hide within the covers.
