'I'm Still Dreaming': Homeless Men Share Their Hopes For The Future

"You never, ever look down on another human being -- whether it's a man, woman or child -- unless you're trying to lift them up."

You don't need all the riches in the world to dare to dream. 

A video from A Plus features homeless men from the Bowery Mission, a rescue mission and shelter in New York City, sharing their dreams. Though the responses are all different, the men have one thing in common -- hope.

"Being changed before I leave here," one man said, describing his dream. "Being stronger and just having my kids in my life again."

Another man shared some wise words.

"You never, ever look down on another human being -- whether it's a man, woman or child -- unless you're trying to lift them up," he said

Perhaps all their words can be summed up in one strong, hopeful statement from one man: "I'm still dreaming." 

The clip was filmed at an event that kicked off a month-long campaign to raise $150,000 to fund The Mission's new 21-day shelter program, according to a statement from A Plus.
