Minor James Miller Junior looks out of the window at the Courtesy Cleaners on Charleston Avenue in Mattoon, Illnois on December 19, 2009. The laundromat offeres a warm place to stay during the day after leaving the PADS shelter for the morning and afternoon. It is only a short walk from the shelter and is open before the Public Library. The laundromat door has a sign that says 'No Loitering', but the employees tolerate the homeless community most of the time. (Jay Grabiec)
