Caring for human beings seems like the best use of my time, homeless or not.

Homeless Family? Not now.

They were living in their car when I met them in November, 2008. Nightwatch put them into a hotel room. The YWCA followed with temporary housing. Facebook friends and Nightwatch board members got them furniture.

Phil & Cathy and their four kids are moving into their own subsidized permanent apartment on March 1st, 2010. Just one problem: it's in Spokane.

So, who wants to match my $50? I figure $500 for the rental truck and driver, gas for both vehicles. Let me know if you want to help out. We need some muscle too, at both ends. If you have Spokane connections, shout out.

Yippee! So happy for them all. Thanks to all the people who showered Christmas gifts and baby-sitting too.
