Homeless woman living in van – Jan 14, 2016

A Summerville woman got into some legal problems that resulted in her temporarily losing custody of her children to the grandmother.  She and her mother were guests at Expanding the Table Food Ministry last week and they shared their story.  The woman needs to attend some classes and is not permitted to live with her mother and the children during the period of change of custody.  The grandmother is helping her daughter as best she can but is of limited means.  The woman struggles to find employment and has a suspended license that makes it more difficult.  As a result the women has found herself homeless as she works out her issues and works toward getting custody of her children.  She is currently living in her van which had a tire that was going flat and the others were bald or improperly sized.  Changed for a Dollar offered to help with tires and was able to work out a deal with Gerald’s Tires to get her a full set of four good used tires so she could still have some means of transportation.

Gerald’s tires payment - $208.96
