Honest homeless man who returned $10k check to owner is repaid with a house and training

Most of us would like to think that if we found money lying in the street we’d do the right thing and hand it in.

When one man with nothing found a life-changing amount of money he didn’t hesitate to do the right thing and reunite it with its owner.

Elmer Alvarez was homeless when he found the $10,000 check in New Haven, Connecticut.

As someone who had been dealt a tough hand in life, Elmer could have done anything with that check but he decided to return it to its rightful owner.

His honesty ended up setting him on a path that would ultimately change his life for the better.

The money belonged to real estate agent Roberta Hoskie who had lost the check on a busy intersection and didn’t realize it had disappeared until the next day.
Elmer said the first thing that came to mind when he found the check was, “I got to look for this person.”

He said he didn’t think about cashing it for himself.

“It never crossed my mind because I made a decision to turn my life over. I’ve been clean for three years,” Elmer told CBS News.

When Roberta found out that the check had been returned she was determined to find Elmer and thank him personally.

“I expected to find a guy all nice, clean shaven and blue suit,” she said.

Instead she got Elmer, who had brought a friend with him as his English wasn’t very good who told Roberta that Elmer was homeless.
