Add comment on:Homeless Services Center puts anemic woman on the streets where she can be raped or robbed

On July 30, 2012, the Homeless Services Center (HSC) threw Megan Andrea Morgan — a severely disabled woman who suffers from anemia and other disabilities which cause her severe fatigue and exhaustion — onto the street, denying her access to the HSC campus for seven days where she was receiving shelter at the Paul Lee Loft. On Sunday, July 29, 2012, Ms. Morgan was physically assaulted by a volunteer from Elevation Church of the Authentic Relevant Jesus — http://new.elevationsc.org/ — who claiming Ms. Morgan was not disabled, placed his hands upon her, physically removing her from the HSC dining hall. On Sundays the Elevation Church holds a breakfast at the HSC dining hall where they force homeless diners to attend prayers and a sermon. On Tuesday, July 31, 2102, Ms. Morgan, accompanied by my sister Patricia Colby as her representative and advocate on my behalf, pressed assault charges against this Elevations Church volunteer. Ms. Morgan has trouble standing without her walker — she is five feet one inch tall.
