Troy and Derby, VT - I picked this couple up at the Newport City Motel, where they had run out of money to pay. Took them to Border Motel and paid $400 where arrangements were made for a two week stay by Joshua House. A disabled Veteran who will be receiving help from VA for an apartment in March. Both alcoholics, and former homeowners, faced a string of hardships and became homeless, slept under porches, then in a car that they eventually lost from overuse of heating, etc. Home was foreclosed on and furniture stored.
Through working with Border Motel Management, and a business owner in Derby, housing continued until apartment opened up in Derby. Connected to Derby Comm. Church for emergency food/meal.
