HOMELESS DOESN’T EQUAL HELPLESS IN ST AUGUSTINE FLORIDA
Thanks to the efforts of two formerly homeless women, on Saturday March 9, 2013, all homeless women in St Johns County Florida were invited to a Women’s Respite Day, replete with food, supplies, makeovers, counseling and free child care. I first met Helen a few months ago when she was living in her car. Nancy had been living alternately in a truck with her husband, at various campgrounds and sometimes in cheap motels. These two women garnered the support of 50 volunteers and donations, designed programs, publicized their event and treated over 50 homeless women to a beautiful day on the grounds of St Cyprians Church. Our homeless have also held a car wash to raise over $1200.00 for a local boy who needed a liver transplant, a cookout to thank the people who serve them 365 days a year http://maddowblog.msnbc.com/... and a sing along at a local nursing home. The homeless here rock!
