A referral came to Change for a Dollar from a resident at the local homeless shelter. He assisted a homeless couple who had just relocated back to Summerville from N. Carolina and they had just started jobs. The place where they were promised as few weeks stay until their paychecks came in did not work out. They were staying in a local motel and had secured a weekly rate from the motel manager but were running out of funds for both rent and food. The fellow from the homeless shelter gave the woman a coat and some food from the shelter to help them out. Change for a Dollar was able to assist with paying for an additional week stay at the motel until their first paychecks came in.
Motel costs - $385.00
