Follow-up News Story on ABC
Last night on the 6:00 news, KGO Channel 7 (ABC) ran a follow-up story about Katy and Liz. Reporter Karina Rusk did the first story and wanted to report on what's happening regarding the "homeless blogging teen" finding a house. Karina would like to do a third story when Katy and Liz move into new housing. I'll keep you posted on that.
The news story showed some of Katy's artwork. I know that girl's got a great career ahead of her in art. (When you click on the link above, click on photo #2 to load the video.)
After the news show I received this email from a gal named Jessica. I'm running it with a hyperlink to her email address with her permission. Do you or someone in your sphere of influence know a person or organization in Merced, California, who could help?
Hello. My name is Jennifer and I am currently staying at the motel 6 in santa clara where katy and liz stay (or did stay). I saw the newscast and it tug at my heartstrings. My fiance and I are in the same boat. We are moving from here tomorrow to los banos to stay with my fiance's family (for a couple days). We found an apartment for $600 in Merced and with my fiance's SSI benefits, we can afford that. Unfortunately, EHC lifebuilders will not help us with the deposit because it is out of the county. I was wondering if you or any of your readers know of anywhere in Merced County that might help us with the deposit. We can make the rent every month. We just need the deposit to move in. My mom and I have read many of your books and I really enjoy them.
If you can help Jennifer, please click on her name to email her directly. Please put "Forensics and Faith blog" in your subject line so she'll know it's not spam.
If more news comes up I'll post it as updates over the weekend. Happy Friday, BGs. And thanks to all of you for following this story all week.
