Melisha and her children ran from an abusive partner. They put as much as they could in a U-Haul and left. Not knowing where to turn they moved into Ruby’s Place, a shelter for abused women and children. There they were able to live safely, save up and find a place of their own.
When they did find their place they had some things but not all the necessities such as beds, a dining table or a couch. Then the Orinda Boy Scouts Troop 237 stepped up for the challenge and got them all they needed and more! See what they were able to accomplish in just a few hours!
Thank you to our Lafayette Chapter and our partners Make it Home, and Chipman Relocation and Logistics for helping us provide homes for families! We are so thankful for all of the work you do!
