On Monday, my client, a grandmother, arrived at our shower truck with her partner and her grandson. She was hoping for a warm shower, clean clothing, and food. Later she left with a motel room for her and her grandson. Days before, my client’s trailer had been stolen from her campsite at Juniper Ridge and stripped of everything she owned. She believed her only choice was to sleep in her car with her grandson. After hearing her story John Lodies and I were able to team up with J bar J’s new program, which helps families with children overcome obstacles and work toward self-sufficiency and find safe housing We have successfully diverted several families into this program since its inception.
