SERVICES: "We provide lodging, we provide the food, we provide any necessities they need," Ms. Freeman said. "It's $2 to $10 a night and it's based on their income, but never more than $10 a night."
CHALLENGE: "I would say space and handicapped accessibility," Ms. Freeman said. "We're not handicapped accessible so we do have to turn some people down. We're completely dependent on the community for funding."
