Café Owner Offers Man Who Had Been Homeless For 16 Years A Job After He Asked Her For Money

Cesia Abigail Baires respects everyone equally, so a homeless man who walked into her cafe in 2016 asking for money was given more than just a helping hand.

Cesia, 25, wanted to learn more about his situation, so she asked, “Why don’t you have a job? Do you realize that nothing comes to me for free?”””

He lowered his head and described his situation. As a result of multiple convictions, he claims he cannot find work, so he lives on the streets and earns money the only way he knows how: by stealing and begging.

Cela is the café’s 20th owner in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Her company has had a difficult time keeping going, and the years have not been easy for her. Cesia stated at the time that she “had a connection with him” after the homeless man, Marcus, came into her cafe.

He had walked up and down Main Street before, but they had never spoken.

Marcus was not given much choice based on the cards dealt to him, but Cesia still decided to give him a chance by offering him a position at Abi’s Café.

Cecia reported that he was short-staffed on Facebook, “So, I asked him, ‘Do you want to work?’ ‘I have a job for you!you!you!'” His eyes widened and his smile brightened my day. ‘I’ll do anything for food,’ he said.

Before beginning work, the café owner handed Marcus a sandwich, but instead of eating it all, Marcus wrapped half of it in foil and ran outside to give it to a homeless woman on the street. Cesia expressed her gratitude by saying that the act had “truly touched” her.

As evidence of Marcus’ commitment, he was always on time for his two-hour job, which Cesia paid him for, to help take out the garbage and wash dishes.

After being paid, Marcus ordered food from Cesia’s restaurant, insisting on paying because it makes him happy.

Don’t pass judgment just because someone is asking for money; we don’t know their condition….” “Some people deserve a second chance,” Cesia wrote on Facebook.

The fact that Marcus hasn’t missed a shift in two weeks has further cemented Cesia’s trust in him. Despite the fact that her business was going through a rough patch, she felt she had made the right decision in hiring him.

Cesia told CBS News that “other eateries wouldn’t let you use their facilities.” “I don’t judge people based on their appearance – go ahead and use it.” “I don’t regard [homeless individuals] any differently than anyone else.”

People described Cesia as a godsend to the homeless man when their story went viral. It was the opposite for Cesia.

“Many people say I’ve been a blessing to him,” she said, “but at the time, I needed a blessing.”

Marcus, who has been homeless since he was 16, still has a long way to go. They agreed to deduct 10% of his pay and put it aside so he could learn how to save.

“I had my help, too,” Cesia said. “A lot of people helped me get to where I am today. They believed in my abilities. We all need someone to believe in us.

One little act of kindness can have a huge impact on someone’s life.
