Hansen was one of more than 700 people who came to the Verizon Wireless Center for Project Community Connect, where dozens of agencies that provide services to the poor and homeless were on hand.
He's in a situation he's unfamiliar with.
But in 2008 the studio he was working for shut down and he took a job as a 711 cashier in a badly battered Albuquerque economy. He also went back to college for an associate's degree in graphic design. "I couldn't keep up with the tuition and I had to leave."

Shortly after the doors opened, a line of more than 100 people snaked out the door as a team of volunteers took a five minute intake session with each person to better understand what services they required.
