To the editor:

I am a volunteer at The Montgomery County Homeless Service Center on West Davis Street in Conroe. A few days ago, I met a family who travelled here from Minnesota so that the father could accept a job at a local automobile dealership as a mechanic.

His wife found part time work at a grocery store. After only a few weeks on the job he was laid off by the dealership and could no longer afford his rented home.

His possessions were placed in a U-Haul storage locker, but after a few weeks of living in their car, they could no longer make payments on their storage locker and their possessions were to be auctioned.

I went to visit the U-Haul storage facility and met with the General Manager, Chantz Dschaak. After explaining the situation, this compassionate man arranged to forgive the family’s nearly $300 debt and gave him access to his possessions. I want to thank Mr. Dschaak and U-Haul for this incredible act of kindness to a family who discovered they were only one paycheck away from homelessness.
