Pictured above you will see one of our Friends In Need, Miss Donna. We have assisted her since May 2008 when we first met her, through another one of our Friends In Need while Donna was living on the streets of Knoxville in her wheelchair. She is physically disabled, confined to a wheelchair and also lives with a brain injury.
We Need Your Help Please. Today. Right Now. We pray to Jesus, you will help.
We are needing to raise Emergency Funds for our Showers of Hope Mobile Crisis/Intervention Unit (pictured above) to drive from St. Petersburg, FL. to Oak Ridge, TN., 720 miles one way, stay for two weeks and return to St. Petersburg, FL.
We have an emergency situation now with Miss Donna as she has been given a warning of eviction by the property management where she lives. The management have been extremely awesome where Donna lives, they have been more than wonderful to Donna. If they are forced to evict her she will once again be on the streets homeless. We want to prevent that.
I, Lance Greene, Founder of Straight Ahead Outreach (Taking Back Your Life) Inc.(STA) will personally drive in our Showers of Hope Mobile Crisis/Intervention Unit pictured above to go spend some quality time with Miss Donna and get her calmed down a bit, get her to see her Doctor, get her electric wheelchair repaired and purchase personal needs/incidentals and food for her. While i am in the Oak Ridge/Knoxville area i will also take time to see some of our other Friends In Need within the City of Knoxville, TN.
