Wednesday night, officials at Community Works say all 13 people getting help from the Transitional Living Program, will now be able to stay in their homes after donations poured in from the community.

Ginger Lee, the Community Works Executive Director said "I really want to thank everybody who helped. We have donations totaling $5700 and the Chaney Foundation is offering us a $5000 grant."

She says the money should cover costs for at least another month. If you would like to help teens and young adults keep a roof over their heads, you can donate at any People's Bank. Just make a check out to the Community works TLP account.
