UPDATE: Homeless man says his future is looking better

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - A man, who calls a covered pier on Biloxi's Back Bay home, said he expects things to change for the better soon.

Reporter Doug Walker covered a story on 43-year-old Kevin Wilson last week about Wilson's life after loosing his job as a construction worker.

Without a steady income, Wilson resigned to living on the streets and eating at homeless shelters. Following Doug Walker's story, Seashore Mission has received several calls about job offers for Wilson.

Despite his own hardship, Wilson volunteers several days a week at Seashore Mission in Biloxi, doing whatever needs to be done.

"A lot of job offers have been offered to me and a lot of opportunities have opened up for me, and so at this point, I'm still looking for a job, but at the same time, it's going to take a little time, but all in all, things are looking very up for me," said Wilson.

He said he hopes to be back working within the next week or so, and then find a place to call home once again. He talked about the other homeless people he meets and has apparently managed to change some attitudes that people have about the homeless.
