  • Homelessness a very real problem locally

    Homeless. It's a spot she never thought she'd find herself. The rent was due, the bills were piling up and Debbie Martin simply didn't have enough money to keep up. Soon after, she was evicted.

    Earlier this year, Martin's husband left, leaving a tremendous amount of bills for her to pay alone.

    "I had to sell everything I had in the house to make the next month's rent," Martin said.

    But when the following month's rent came due, Martin realized she wasn't going to be able to keep up.

    "I was devastated. I didn't know what I was going to do."
