A local Summerville homeless woman was staying at a shelter upon arrival from Florida. She was having difficulty staying employed and was looking into other options. During her 2 month stay in Summerville she had been communicating with family in Connecticut and had been able to reconnect with her once estranged father. In discussing options with the family it became possible for her to go back to Connecticut and stay with her father and stepmother until she found employment and was able to get a place of her own. She did not have enough funds for the trip up north so Change for a Dollar was approached for assistance. C4$ was able to get her a train ticket from Charleston and gave her a few dollars travel money to get to her father’s place.
Amtrak ticket and travel money – $67 + $50 = $117
