Today on Home & Family, Mark & Paige talk to Scott Sowle, founder of Redeeming Soles. For more than 13 years Scott lived on the streets of Houston, Salt Lake City and Los Angeles. In 2009, Scott came to Seattle and entered the city’s Union Gospel Mission’s yearlong New Creations program. One November day, a homeless man came into the mission with a pair of socks stuffed with cardboard looking for shoes. The only footwear UGM had to give the man was a pair of flip flops, hardly suitable shoes for a chilly, rainy day in late fall. The experience drove Scott to take action so he hitched a trailer to his bike and began asking for donations. Now Scott has donated more than 35,000 shoes to the needy.
