Thanksgiving is here and many Rutherford County residents are counting their blessings. 58-Year old Debbie Nichols and her 32-year old son Lance told us what they are thankful for…

Debbie and Lance are homeless. They told us the Room in the Inn shelter and the Salvation Army are both full this week. We asked them where they would be staying during the holiday’s…

The manager of a Murfreesboro restaurant that is open 24/7 allowed them to sleep on a bench in the corner of their facility the previous night so they would not freeze to death.

Lance is a U-S Army Veteran who is partially blind and his mother has asthma. The two often find themselves camping out in wooded areas behind local businesses and the outdoors is not the best place for Debbie to stay with her condition that is often untreated.

It’s interesting to note that when we asked Lance what passerby’s could offer to homeless persons like himself, he never mentioned money.
