Coeur d'Alene homeless camp asked to movePosted: Updated:
Nine years, that's how long some people have called the wooded area behind target in Coeur d'Alene home.
Dawn Garvin has been here with her wife for a little more than a year. But today, is their last day here.
"We've lost way more than any person should," says Garvin.
She and nearly 60 others were told on October 9th that they had to be off the property by October 29th.
"I started to pack some stuff and I couldn't do it. I don't know what to back," says Garvin.
To help the homeless move their belongings, a number of volunteers from various church organizations were here this morning to help pack and move.
"We're going to get their gear and store it at a facility," sad local pastor Diego Rodriguez.
But due to limited resources, the homeless were allowed only one truck worth of possessions. The little that Garvin did own, was too much to take.
"I don't know what I want to take and what in want to leave behind," says Garvin.
Garvin is losing her home, and a number of her personal belongings, but the part that scares her the most is what she does after this.
"I have no idea where I'll be sleeping tonight. No idea," says Garvin. "Me, my wife and my dog, we have no clue where we'll be tonight."
