Since 1996 we have taken in more than 20 different people. Including my mother, a couple of brothers-in-law, a sister, a best friend’s son, and a family with 10 kids. We’ve picked up and safely delivered numerous teenagers who were in a bind in the middle of the night and terrified to call their parent without a trusted adult. We’ve crossed the nation at least three times for someone else’s emergency. Counseled at least a dozen couples, been responsible for two people on probation. Paid for attorneys, visited jails, hospitals and clothed people out of pocket, or directly off our feet and back.
