Our second 2015 Season of Giving recipient is Mr. Joseph Horne.
Joseph Horne is a security officer for MDOT. In 2013 he found his 30-year-old wife passed out from a brain aneurysm. She later passed away.
Joseph and his wife had no health insurance. Trying to pay her medical bills cost him everything. He lost his home and car. He lost his job because he had no transportation. He lived in motels, boarding houses, and one church. This past January he became an occupant of the Salvation Army and they helped him secure his current job. Co-workers have been a huge help by providing him transportation to and from work. He has saved enough money to rent an apartment, but it’s empty. He has been sleeping on the floor with a blanket.
Miskelly’s is grateful for the opportunity to help Joseph. We are happy to report that he will no longer be sleeping on the floor!
