            Steven Aliberti seemed to know he didn't have long to live.=20

            His body was deteriorating, damaged by a decades-long battle =
with alcoholism and other illnesses. Homelessness was a further strain: =
For about seven years, Aliberti spent his days and nights outside, =
punctuated by occasional stays in jail and, when the temperature dipped, =
visits to First Congregational Church's emergency cold weather shelter. =
"He must have known he was really bad off," said Brenda Aliberti, =
Aliberti's ex-wife.=20

            The morning of Jan. 26, Aliberti was found lying in the snow =
near a site frequented by Concord's homeless. Suffering from severe =
hypothermia, Aliberti, 52, spent several days in Concord Hospital's =
intensive care unit before dying Jan. 30, said David Keller, the pastor =
of First Congregational Church, where Aliberti had been sleeping.=20

            Several days after arriving at the hospital, Aliberti's body =
seemed to begin shutting down, and he was placed on life support, Keller =
said. It's unclear how long Aliberti was lying in the snow before he was =
discovered.=20

            Since First Congregational Church began opening its doors to =
Concord's homeless during the coldest months, Keller has presided over =
several funerals for shelter guests. Like Aliberti, there have been =
other men who died in middle age, often after years without a stable =
home. Aliberti's memorial service will take place this afternoon, at the =
church where he spent so many nights.=20

            "We're just not ready," Brenda Aliberti said. "He kept =
making it through the winters, so we had hope."=20

            Aliberti's years of homelessness belied his family ties. =
Unlike other shelter guests, Aliberti had a network of relatives and =
friends, several of whom lived in Concord. He doted on his and Brenda =
Aliberti's 10-year-old son; before becoming too ill, he took his son =
swimming and bike riding. After Brenda Aliberti helped her former =
husband purchase a cell phone, he called almost daily, she said. She =
repeatedly attempted to find him an apartment, making calls to =
landlords. When he went too long without checking in, she went =
searching.=20

            "He had a family that continuously reached out to him," =
Keller said. "It's not a lost person. It's a person with a family and =
with connections and with love." Shortly before Aliberti's death, he =
spent time with his father and stepmother, who visited from Vermont, =
Keller said. Shelter volunteers and hospital workers also attempted to =
help.=20

            Despite those links, Aliberti never managed to break free of =
his addiction. He drank heavily, imperiling his health, those who knew =
him said. Living without a home in Concord, he was surrounded by other =
drinkers.=20

            "It's very hard for people to understand how overwhelming =
this illness is, especially if you're homeless and you have no hope," =
Keller said. "It's your coping mechanism."=20

            Attempts to recover=20

            But Aliberti's is also a story of attempted recovery, and =
the hurdles facing those seeking treatment. Just before his death, =
Aliberti made two attempts to enter a treatment facility, only to find =
that there were no open beds, Keller said.=20

            On one occasion, employees at Concord Hospital helped =
Aliberti search for a treatment center opening - before they found one, =
however, Aliberti was discharged from the hospital, and he started =
drinking again shortly after, Keller said. After that first attempt, =
shelter workers helped Aliberti make more calls.=20

            "I really believe that Steve was making as best of an =
attempt that he could to get sober, but (there was) no doubt that his =
addiction had gotten the best of him," Keller said. "But that's not to =
say he didn't want it," Keller added, referring to treatment.=20

            The state contracts with six crisis sites in the state, =
where those addicted to alcohol or drugs can go for residential =
non-medical detoxification and counseling. The six sites provide a total =
of 54 beds, according to the state Department of Health and Human =
Services. Waiting lists are common, according to those who work with the =
homeless. To find an open bed, those seeking treatment need to call the =
crisis sites daily. Unlike private facilities, these centers admit =
patients regardless of their ability to pay.=20

            "I know there aren't enough beds," said Keith Kuenning, =
executive director of the New Hampshire Coalition to End Homelessness. =
"Here you are, a homeless individual with no internet access, no phone, =
and you're supposed to make a daily phone call.=20

            "The thing that's upsetting about this is that we know how =
to help these people," added Kuenning, who advocates the creation of =
permanent housing for the homeless, which make counseling and other =
support services available.=20

            Stay-at-home dad=20

            Alcohol didn't always hold such sway over Aliberti, who was =
born in New Haven, Conn.=20

            He worked off and on as a mechanic before injuring himself, =
his former wife said. When he and Brenda Aliberti met a dozen years ago, =
he was a recovering alcoholic devoted to his treatment program. The =
first year of their son's life, it was Steven Aliberti - who had =
recently undergone a knee replacement - who stayed home to care for him. =
When Brenda Aliberti returned home at the end of the day, Aliberti would =
have the whole house clean, she said.=20

            But when their son, Robert, was a toddler, Aliberti =
relapsed. His former wife suspects that a medication he was taking for =
Hepatitis C, which he likely contracted during a blood transfusion =
decades ago, may have harmed him. Depression is one possible side effect =
of the drug, called interferon.=20

            Aliberti's drinking occasionally led to violence. Several =
years later, the couple divorced.=20

            After Aliberti moved out of their Concord home, "he was =
never able to really get himself up again," Brenda Aliberti said.=20

            Although Brenda Aliberti said that, "we begged him to get an =
apartment," Aliberti remained on the streets. He loved the outdoors; as =
long as the weather wasn't too cold, "it didn't really bother him," she =
said. From time to time, he was picked up for small thefts, including a =
30-pack of Coors Light on one occasion and $60 worth of beer and wine on =
another, according to news reports. He spent time in jail.=20

            When Brenda Aliberti tried to find him a room or an =
apartment, Aliberti told her that he was scared of the responsibility. =
He began frequenting the shelter at First Church several years ago, and =
became a regular guest again this winter, after spending time at the Red =
Roof Inn in Loudon, Keller said.=20

            There were sober stretches - he spent time in a treatment =
program, and he couldn't drink while in jail. Brenda Aliberti wouldn't =
allow drinking in her home. Illness would send him to the hospital, and =
Aliberti would be temporarily sober.=20

            "He was always trying to change through the years," Brenda =
Aliberti said.=20

            But as Aliberti aged, his health declined. Apart from =
alcoholism, he had trouble with his blood pressure and other ailments, =
such as frostbite, according to his former wife. After being released =
from jail this winter, Aliberti was beginning to say that, "I'm too =
sick; I don't see a way out for myself," Keller said. "People were =
imploring him to believe that there really was a future for him."=20

            Even as Aliberti felt increasingly ill, he helped family and =
friends, sharing money from his Social Security checks and, when he had =
it, alcohol, Brenda Aliberti said. "He would rather give and have =
everyone be happy," she said. Keller also knew Aliberti to have a =
reputation for buying things for others, even though he had little money =
for himself.=20

            "He was very grateful and very respectful," Keller said. =
Aliberti was also a "person of profound faith," the sort of man who =
carried a Bible, Keller said.=20

            Throughout, Aliberti's family and friends knew that, "Robert =
was who Steve lived for," Keller said.=20

            Aliberti "really thought highly of his boy," said Charles, a =
friend of Aliberti's who is also homeless, and didn't want to give his =
last name. "He had some really nice sides to him."=20

            For Aliberti, this winter brought frequent visits to the =
hospital; Keller estimates he was admitted three or four times in =
January. On one occasion, hospital employees helped refer him to a =
detoxification site, but there were no available beds. On another =
occasion, shelter workers took Aliberti to the hospital.=20

            Aliberti didn't show up at the shelter the night of Jan. 25. =
The next morning, another shelter guest found Aliberti in the snow, =
Keller said. According to several people, Aliberti was discovered near =
Stickney Avenue. He was rushed to Concord Hospital.=20

            "He was just a very caring, loving person," Brenda Aliberti =
said. "And it's very sad that he has to have this disease of =
alcoholism."=20

            A memorial service will take place today at 2:30 p.m. at the =
First Congregational Church in Concord. Memorial donations may be made =
to the church, which is located at 177 North Main St., Concord, New =
Hampshire
