Tammy

Tammy has been “jumped” twice by kids and adults going on a rampage setting fires and abusing homeless people, but that’s not the least of her worries. She has lived in the tent you see behind her for a few years and soon the city will be bulldozing the land because of new construction.

For Tammy, even with the dangers, she feels safer living in a tent community than at a shelter.  She calls the community her family and in many ways, they become one.

I was with an outreach team in Columbus, Ohio checking on all the “campers” to see if everyone had any needs and to place people on a housing list. Their goal is to get everyone the support they need before the tent community is eradicated.  I hope and pray Tammy makes it into a housing program.

We imagine a world where everyone has a place to call home. Until then, we strive to be the most trusted source for homelessness.
