The Warmth of Home
February 24, 2022
Can you imagine living in your car over these frigid winter months? We’ve been receiving more calls for help from families who are living in their car or camper. Amena* was couch hopping and living out of her car while working as a nursing assistant and taking her child to daycare before joining Bridge of Hope. There are campgrounds that stay open in Lancaster all winter, despite freezing water lines and disconnected electricity, because people are living there year round. One family reached out to Bridge of Hope recently because they had moved into their camper this fall when they lost their home. The plumbing could not handle everyone in the family, so the older children are being fostered and attending school, and the parents are caring for their infant while seeking help. These situations are devastating and traumatic. But, your support of Bridge of Hope makes it possible to help families exit homelessness, and find a warm place to call home.
