HOMELESS FAMILY WITH SICK CHILD GETS FURNISHED HOME 10AM FRIDAY
Detroit Michigan — Help has finally come to Detroit homeless couple, Dwayne Cole and Siretha Lattimore, who voluntarily handed over their four young children, including 9-year-old Malik who suffers from severe asthma, to Child Protective Services in October. As first reported by theDetroit News on December 9, the couple had been sleeping in their car with the children. But this Friday, December 18th at 10am, nonprofit Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries (DRMM,http://drmm.org) will provide them a rent-free and fully furnished residence stocked with food, thanks to its donors across Michigan and beyond.
The couple only learnt of the DRMM largesse, which includes free support services, on Tuesday but the location and description of the house at 1981 Webb Street Detroit are kept from them as a surprise.
“Our hope is that we will get all the family together before Christmas, and we will be sure that they have all the ingredients so they can have a nice Christmas dinner in their own house,” DRMM president and CEO, Dr. Chad Audi, told Detroit News Tuesday.
What: Presentation of a rent-free fully furnished house to a homeless family of 6, including a 9-year-old suffering from severe asthma.
Who: The refurbished house would be presented to the family by 106-year-old nonprofit Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries (http://drmm.org). Dwayne Cole and Siretha Lattimore are expected to begin occupancy of the house immediately after the presentation, while DRMM intensifies efforts to help them regain full custody of their children.
Where: 1981 Webb Street Detroit MI 48206.
When: 10am Friday December 18 2015.
