On Wednesday, June 12 at 11:30pm a drunk driver slammed into Shameeka Griffin and Cooley Johnson’s home. These two have been best friends for over 20 years.  They have lived in this home for 13 years and been wonderful neighbors. Sadly, since they do not have renter’s insurance and the home has been condemned, they are now homeless. They are in need of community support.

The Red Cross will be assisting them for a few days, however, after they will be on their own after that. Moments after the accident it began to rain ruining their personal belongings. Shameeka had been saving for double knee replacement surgery. And Coolie has Parkinson’s Disease and Epilepsy. Coolie was thrown across the room against the wall and spent the night in the hospital.Both are heartbroken to have to leave the neighborhood they love.

Please give and share to help our very sweet disabled neighbors.

Hi All! Just a quick update. I just stopped by Shameeka and Cooley's house. They are there packing. I got to see first hand the frightening scene and the destruction. They are so lucky they didn't get hurt! They are blown away by all the community support and wanted me to convey again how grateful they are and how much it means to them that everyone is thinking of them. They have a few lines on housing and I will keep you posted when they move in.
Thank you everyone!

I'm also working on temporary housing for them. I hope the donations keep coming in so that we can cover any rent/deposits they may encounter so please keep sharing! ~Laura
