Karl Johnson has an amazing story to tell. While his brother became an NBA All-Star, he ended up on the streets after serving time in prison. Looking for a fresh start, he came to Fresno, where he started by shining shoes. His determination to succeed, coupled with the friendliness of strangers and the First Steps Home, led to a shoe shine business and job at the Downtown Club.
