An elderly Summerville woman who is homeless was dropped off at the local woman’s shelter by the police. They were concerned as she was hungry and in need of a shower and had no family or friends. The shelter was full but even so she was not appropriate as she was on social security and was not interested in working full time, one of the shelter’s requirements. The police didn’t know what to do with her and the staff at the shelter had tried to get her placed elsewhere but it was getting late in the day and nothing was working out. Change for a Dollar was approached to see if we could assist in some manner. C4$ was able to put her up in a local hotel for two nights to allow her time to make some calls and make more permanent arrangements.
