Housing for Tommie Lou Long

At 5:00 pm on Tuesday, April 10th, her daughter and grandchildren rushed into the living room to tell Tommie Lou the house was on fire!  As most of us would have reacted, it took a second for those words to resonate.  Everything Tommie Lou owned was in that house; her clothes, furniture, keepsakes, photos - but all she could think about was making certain everyone was out of the house and safe.  

Tommie Lou is 75 years old, and, like many senior adults on a small, fixed income, homeowners insurance did not make the list of necessities.  She instead had to  choose medicine, electricity, water and groceries.  She also has a medical condition that has caused her to be hospitalized 5 different times since October, 2017.  

Tommie Lou is staying with a friend who lives just up the street from where the house burned.  Our plan with this campaign is simple: to have enough funds to place housing back on the lot where she would like to spend the rest of her days.  

We covet your prayers for Tommie Lou and her family and look forward to having her back on her feet!
