SPOKANE, Wash. -

Bruce Nunn has lived outside the Coalition Of Responsible Disabled's (CORD) West Central headquarters for about a decade, but they're asking him to leave after they received numerous citations caused by complaints from neighbors.

“It's really hard because I care so much about him,” Patty Severud said. Severud is a social worker at CORD.

“He's been one of my best friends,” she said. “He's the guard out here. He would keep you safe.”

Severud has considered extreme measures to help the 51-year-old.

“I've thought about marrying him to get him out of this,” she said.

But despite their attempts to find Nunn housing, he continues to end up back on the street, and back behind their building.

“He's been on the streets his entire life,” Severud said. “This is his life. There's just no place to go anymore.”

“It's not their fault,” Nunn said. “It's not my property. I can't keep it here… I'll put everything that I really need in one garbage can, and bye.”

But it will be hard to endure the Spokane winter in a new place, especially given the frostbite and infected ankle that still bother Nunn.

“It's awful to see him being thrown around,” Severud said. “But he's choosing to be outside.”
