Corpus Christi's Homeless surviving winter

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI -

We went on a ride tonight with homeless advocates. We arrive at a closed business near I-37. It's cold and it's rainy. The CEO of the Good Samaritan Rescue Misson is trying to get the needy off the streets.

"I got a shelter up the road can I get you into a bed for the night?" said Spencer Lowe, CEO of Good Samaritan Rescue Mission.

They say no but offers them food and something else.

"You need a blanket?," asked Lowe.

Several homeless have their own reasons for staying outside tonight.

"The situation is gonna get better for me," said one homeless man.

Back at the Good Samaritan, the homeless are pouring in.

"And we are prepared for it," said Lowe.

Extra space and extra cots. About 250 are here. That's about 100 more than they usually see. Those pouring in have different faces but similar stories.

"I had everything and lost it all," said one homeless man.

The homeless know what this time of the year can bring. And through the night this scene will be played out over and over. The outreach will continue.
