- A woman's compassionate gesture has transformed the lives of families by changing their statuses from being homeless to house owners
- Jessica Pearce, with support from her husband, first started by taking a homeless man off the street and paying a month's rent in a hotel room for him
- Pearce then took it a step further by purchasing 4 houses and giving them to families who slept on the street
A woman has made house owners out of people who had previously taken street corners as their homes.
The lady who was formerly homeless got four houses for four families who slept on the streets of Melbourne, Understanding Compassion reports.
Jessica Pearce was touched by the growing number of persons who sleep on the streets and sought to make an impact.
She and her husband had reached out to some of the affected families during last Christmas to get a first-hand feeler of what it was like.
The couple started their kind act with a man whose kids were with his former partner because he was homeless.
They not only moved him to a hotel room for two nights but ensured he stayed there for a month.
Jessica who was still hungry to carry out more kind acts located and bought 4 homes in low-cost areas and offered them for free to four families to reside in.
Jessica was sent packing by her parents at 15
Understanding Compassion reports that Jessica was sent packing by her parents at the age of 15. It wasn't clear why her parents took such an action.
A homeless 15-year-old Jessica got a place to stay thanks to a maths teacher at that time and many years later, this experience would form the backdrop of her kind acts.
Presently, she is partnering with agencies to extend housing kindness to as many homeless persons as possible.
