A homeless man returning a $10,000 cheque to its owner on the street gets rewarded with a house.
Homeless and living on the streets of New Haven, Connecticut, was Elmer Alvarez. One day when he was strolling those streets, he found across a check for $10,000. He had a lot of options with that. BBut that just wasn’t in him to keep something that wasn’t his. He then gave it back to the realtor who had misplaced it.
Elmer’s honesty impressed that realtor, Roberta Hoskie, to the point where she helped him give him to house and scheduled a meeting with one of her business partners.
