Steve Rhoades cuts a striking figure striding through downtown Seattle. The 6-foot, 180-pound former Marine wears a long graying ponytail and a chunky metal cross around his neck, and he's pushing a stroller. Inside are wool hats, candy bars and two folding chairs. His easy smile belies the often distressing nature of his work.
