Neighbors In Christ Needs Donations
A Montgomery group that helps crime victims may be forced to close its doors because it's out of money.
Neighbors in Christ partners with local law enforcement repairing homes that have been burglarized and cleaning up homicide and suicide scenes for nearly 25 years... all for free.
What would happen if a crime happened at your home in the middle of the night, leaving parts of your home damaged? While some may hire a repairman, not everyone has the money to do that.
That was the case for Kassandra Williams, who's home was broken into. It's why she called Neighbors in Christ for help.
Administrators say they only have $45,000 in the bank. That's enough to last only four months.
Barbara Hopkins with Neighbors in Christ says that means victim's, like Williams', wouldn't be able to get the help they need.
Without it, Smith told us, "You'd either have to just board it up or just... live in fear? Or just have to leave your home altogether, which is not an option for a lot of people because they have no where else to go."
Last year, Neighbors in Christ cleaned up scenes for 239 homes. All of its supplies to fix up homes like doors and windows are bought through donations.
