Nashville community rallies around formerly homeless grocery store employee

โ€œI was going to the store to find something to eat and walking around the store,โ€ she said, โ€œand I needed somewhere to sit and stay cool. I was like, โ€˜It has to get better than this.โ€™โ€

โ€œI never knew what family was until I stepped into this place,โ€ LaShenda Williams said. โ€œI cried in their arms. They prayed with me, they fed me, and till today they make me feel like I'm OK.โ€

As for Verlenteez Williams, he [Kroger manager] said he doesnโ€™t know anyone more deserving. โ€œItโ€™s a reminder to be kind. Regardless of whatโ€™s going on โ€ฆ be kind and you never know the impact you can have on someoneโ€™s life," he said.

Here is a positive story that uplifts the spirit and feeds the soul. Happy Friday!

Just 10 months ago, LaShenda Williams was living in her car in the parking lot outside the very same grocery store where she now works.

โ€œEvery morning, thousands of LGBTQ youth wake up and begin their day without knowing where they will go to sleep that night. Persistent levels of family rejection, bullying and discrimination and targeting at school contribute to unconscionable rates of homelessness and housing insecurity. Studies have found that as many as 40% of youth living on the streets or facing housing insecurity identify as LGBTQ. Systemic discrimination in employment, education and housing also increase the likelihood that these youth will remain homeless upon adulthood and therefore reliant on government programs. Transgender individuals face even higher rates of homelessness and poverty and are at even greater risk of experiencing violence either on the street or in a shelter.โ€

LGBTQ youth are 120% more likely to be homeless than non-LGBTQ youth. In recognition of True Colors Day, weโ€™re calling on all communities to help put an end to homelessness among the most vulnerable in our society.

How COVID-19 Is Impacting People Experiencing Homelessness

โ€œTo combat the spread of COVID-19, physical distancing measures are being instituted around the world. But for those experiencing homelessness and insecure housing, safety measures are not only out of reach, theyโ€™re not an option.โ€

People experiencing homelessness during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic are vulnerable due to overcrowded shelters and pre-existing health conditions.

Former Adler PsyD student here (didnโ€™t finish due to recent aquirement of disability). Currently homeless and incomeless and seeing all of the systemic issues around getting food/water/shelter needs met, especially during the pandemic. Itโ€™s unbelievable. If you all ever need anything in terms of current perspective from somebody on the streets, Iโ€™m more than happy to offer it! Thank you for all youโ€™re doing! ๐Ÿ™
