A Windsor woman has offered her backyard up to homeless people following a dispute at Street Help—Ã¢ÂÂ after Windsor police officers allegedly told people to move their carts from a nearby alley and private parking lot or public works would dispose of their belongings.
The incident was posted to Street Help’s social media page Friday afternoon which immediately triggered Kim McKintosh to do something.
“The original intent was just to have a safe space so they could have somewhere they could keep their possessions … everything they own are in these carts,” said McKintosh.
A group of about 10 homeless people proceeded to pitch tents and leave their carts on her property. McKintosh said the people, who she has now come to know by name, could not have been nicer.
