It was hard to believe that anyone would be evicted the day a two foot snow is predicted. Yet there they were, inside Orion’s door… a young couple with three adorable little children in need of emergency housing. The immediate need was met by them staying at Code Blue Ministry of Phoenixville for the weekend. The next week, Orion and our wonderful partner organizations helped them with a variety of issues including returning them to their home. As their lives became more stable, the couple took turns volunteering at the Code Blue Ministry overnight. It was heartwarming to see them give back to others who found themselves homeless.
Three weeks after the shelter closed for the season, the young mom sent Orion an email…
“I know it’s 5am but I can’t sleep thinking about how to give back to you guys for what you gave my family. Hope, faith and our home. If you ever need any help please don’t hesitate to email me or my fiancé … Here to help whenever necessary…”
Thanks to everyone who helped this young family during a cold, snowy week.
