During this pandemic, There’s Still Hope has continued to provide food, shelter and
words of comfort to homeless transgender adults and victims fleeting domestic
violence who qualify. Unfortunately, the demand has been extremely high for food
and shelter. But sadly we are not able to help all of them. Please see the article There's Still Hope was featured in for the local queer magazine called Q-Notes. (Continue reading this article below...)
The situation at the Days Inn on Woodlawn Rd. in Charlotte, NC has just added to this crisis. Individuals have been forced to find lodging on our City streets. Among them several who identify as transgender persons of color, along with families with young children displaced as of Thursday May 21st by the Fire Department citing the property is unsafe. This is the second hotel this year where residents who have been living at these locations long term have been forced to leave with nowhere else to go. Fortunately several organizations finally stepped in to help those families. The Days Inn situation from all accounts has a sinister feel
to it. Under the Stay in Place order this group has been forced out.
As our City moves into Phase 2 of re-opening post Covid-19 shelter-in-place, There’s Still Hope could use your help. Landlords and property managers can begin evicting Individuals and families in 9 days because they are unable to pay for their lodging and we forecast a surge in people who are going to need our help!
I am asking if YOU can make a donation. Please go to our website
tshcharlotte3.org/donate No matter how large or small you will help us continue to
offer assistance to those less fortunate. Your gift of love will be greatly appreciated!
Please have a safe and pleasant Memorial Day weekend.
Blessings to you all,
Director of There’s Still Hope
