Throwing Starfish Foundation provides shelter for a homeless Camp Fire Family
Updated: Jan 13, 2019
The family had been camping in the Walmart parking lot
We were moved by the images of families living in a tent city that sprouted up in a parking lot of the Chico Walmart. We wanted to help these families who were camping in the cold, with nowhere to go. We found one family (above) who was camping in the parking lot while trying to figure out their next steps. We helped this family by securing a motel room for a week, while helping them navigate their next steps. The motel room is large and has a kitchenette. We got them set up with food and necessities for the children and adults.
