Housing Needs Addressed

Help for hurricane victims is coming from many places in East Texas. All the social service agencies and churches in Nacogdoches regrouped Tuesday morning. The Nacogdoches Ministerial Alliance is helping to align services and keep groups focused on needs.

In the lead is Love In The Name Of Christ. The agency is reuniting families and linking evacuees with East Texans who are willing to provide them a room or dwelling.

Love INC. Roger Aker said, "We're wanting to go through the basic needs of the family, what the host has to offer through their facility, size of family, pets, personal habits,schedule transportation, things like that." Placement is careful. Emotions often take over and this can lead to a poor match.

As people begin to get into homes the need for furnishings and household items has increased. Beds, couches, kitchen items and televisions are being collected.

Call LOVE INC at 569-8555 if you wish to donate or offer a place to live.
