Help Mr C get home!
Mr. C is Austin Street Center’s longest homeless guest in our emergency shelter, and we are ready to re-unite him to his family. Originally an immigrant from Sierra Leon, he worked hard for several years only to be plagued with several serious illnesses that kept him from a life of independence. After living in a church sanctuary for several years, he finally found his way to Austin Street Center. Through the help of great partners, we have secured his plane ticket, and half of the plane ticekt for a relative to go with him. Now all we need is to pay for is the other half of a ticket, food, lodging, and incidentals to get him back to his family. Please give a gift THIS WEEKEND so that we can send him with these funds on MONDAY. Your help is appreciated far beyond what you can imagine.+ Read More
