Though a 101-year-old evicted Detroit woman has been taken in by a good Samaritan, she still needs more help to get by. After the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development deemed Texana Hollis’ foreclosed home too unsafe for her to live there, a church member, Pollian Cheeks, invited the Detroit native to stay with her. While Hollis now has a roof over her head, she still needs to replace her belongings that were trashed when she was evicted and to make the home where she’s staying wheelchair accessible.
“I don’t know what happened,” Hollis told UPI.com. “Lord knows, I don’t know what happened.”
But some donations have already started pouring in.
I’m still appalled that we can let people be kicked out on the streets in a country as wealthy as ours.
