Saint Lost & Found, an organization providing emergency shelter to homeless Atlanta LGBT youth, has rented a six-bedroom house in West End and hopes to move in six people seeking homes this week.
"In the state of Georgia, you can house six people in addition to the staff member, so we will be putting six kids in there. But we do have an extra bed," said Rick Westbrook, an organizer of the organization founded by Atlanta's chapter of Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.
"We plan to have six permanent residents in there until we can help them get into their own apartment or another shelter," Westbrook said.
Westbrook, who was looking for beds to put in the house this afternoon, said the gas and electricity to the rental house were turned on today.
"We hope to have the kids moved in no later than Wednesday," Westbrook added.
