Mike was able to talk to Charlene’s mom after she left a post on this page, and we have a positive ID that this is Charlene Steward and her mom says she is homeless by choice.
A big thank you to Mike for all he has done by trying to locate Charlene’s family, and following up with talking to Charlene’s mother.
You kindness to another human being is exemplary.
This story comes to us from Mike Perry who is in the National Guard:
“While I was escorting a AP photographer to a crash scene in North Georgia I came across a young lady named Charlene Stewart she said she was 27 has a one year-old child that lives in Florida with her mother and is from Florida.
She did name the city but all I could understand from her was it started with Port. We took her to a National Guard Warming center and I had our Chaplain speak to her and see what resources we could use to possibly get her home.
I added these photos in hopes someone would recognize her.”
If anyone does please contact me via Facebook. (Click on link above to contact Mike).
