Homeless family in leaking tent at campgrounds – July 10, 2015

An Ashley Ridge Church owner follows the posts on a Summerville Pay it Forward Facebook page.  She became aware of a homeless family of four who are staying at a local campground but their tent was leaking and they were looking for a new tent  The ARC owner contacted Change for a Dollar to see if we could assist.  Others were already trying to get a tent for this family amongst some other items like propane, etc.  Change for a Dollar referred them to a homeless shelter that takes families, men, women and children to see if they can get more suitable shelter.  ARC put them up in a hotel for two nights as they communicate with the shelter and hopefully make arrangements to get into some temporary housing.

Hotel stay $125.34
