Al Vincent was not only homeless but even when he could find a a place to stay, most would not allow him to bring with hm his friendly, mixed-breed dog named Hunter. But at The Red Road lodge he not only has a room to call his own but they have allowed him to keep his dog. The Lodge used to be a rough main street bar called The New Occidental but was converted a number of years ago into a transitional house for people without homes.
