A regular guest at one of the Expanding the Table serving sites pointed out a Summerville woman to change for a Dollars who recently became homeless. The woman was living with her daughter but there was trouble in the relationship and she needed to leave her daughter’s residence. The woman had recently lost her job but was actively looking for new work. A distant family relative was coming in from Walterboro to put her up in a hotel for a night or two but was not sure what else she could do as all the homeless shelters were full. Change for a Dollar offered to get her two more nights in the hotel to buy her some additional time to get her situation under control. Upon informing her that the room was paid for she indicated that she had gotten a job that morning and would be able to get back on her feet.
Two nights hotel stay - $154.00
