Homeless Resource Fair Helps Montgomery's Needy
Dozens of people gathered in the capitol city Saturday to make a difference in the lives of Montgomery's homeless.
The Mid-Alabama Coalition for the Homeless sponsored the resource fair at Saint Jude's Instructional Center on Fairview Avenue offering those in need free food, legal aid, and state IDs.
Volunteers from Trenholm State were giving free hair cuts and massage for the homeless.
Organizers say these small things may just be what some people need to turn their whole lives around.
Molly Stone, MACH executive director says may people just need one piece of help to break the cycle of homelessness.
"People don't realize that just an id can get you registered for your food stamps or your social security or whatever income, but you need that id," Stone said.
The resource fair is an annual event here in Montgomery.
