A growing homeless problem is evident in a $10,500 hotel bill racked up by the Interfaith Compassion Ministries which works with the Ole Miss Motel to house displaced persons temporarily. On Thursday, ICM paid out more than $1,100 toward unpaid rent to help keep families in their home.
A Home Task Force meeting will be held at 4 p.m. Sunday in the conference room at the Oxford Police Department. Anyone wishing to help find solutions is asked to attend the meeting. (October 8, 2010, Page 1A)
