Help Me Help A Homeless Person In Gwinnett

homelessness-gwinnett

Yesterday as I was driving down Beaver Ruins Road in Lilburn, Georgia, I saw a Black man sitting in a chair with a large amount of belongings on the side of the road — a homeless person. But I have never seen a homeless person with a huge amount of belongings. Spirit spoke to me and said, “He just got evicted from his place.” I turned around — making a U-turn — because I wanted to take a picture/video of him to write about the problem of homelessness in Gwinnett County. As I approached this man’s location again, it started raining. The man opened an umbrella and kept sitting.

I drove on home, yet that man stayed my mind.

Earlier today, as I was headed to my mom’s house in Atlanta, I road by on Beaver Ruins Road and the man was still there guarding his belongings. Now it is 10:55pm on September 2, 2022 and I just got home from visiting my mom. As I road by, the man was sitting there in the dark, guarding his belongings.

I — we — must do something. I believe life happened and this man was evicted from this resident. He has belongings, his being, but at a brick wall in front of him for moving forward. I want to help him get over this wall but I cannot help him alone! I need help!!!

Here is what I want to do. I will rent a truck, storage facility for three months, but I need help in getting him packed up, belongings moved to storage, and paying for at least three months of hotel space for him, and a job that pays a living wage.

If you are interested in donating, helping me get him moved at noon tomorrow, you can contact me, make a donation, etc. We need to get him a room (I suggest HomeTowne Studios Atlanta NE – Downtown Norcross – very affordable if there is an availability), have a job for him, etc. I work with a few organizations that can provide resources to him as well – health, mental, job readiness, job search, reskilling, etc. Please reach out to me – Cheryle Renee Moses – cheryle@blackgwinnett.com – CashApp $cherylemoses.

Contact me with any questions. I am always up late.

  1. I have seen this man on the road for months, I was driving down Beaver Ruins Road in Lilburn, Georgia, I saw a Black man sitting in a chair with a large amount of belongings on the side of the road — a homeless person. I want to know if he has been helped?! I have not seen him I gave him food and some cash. But I don’t see him anymore, so wanted to know if he is safe.

    1. Many have tried to help. We are working on an updated article as he is hustling right there and getting daily money and resources.
