Good Samaritan helps homeless woman

A San Francisco woman was finally going to be able to move from a shelter into a subsidized apartment, but with HUD workers unable to sign contracts due to the shutdown, she didn't have the funds to make the move. The PBS show, NewsHour, reported on this.

A kindhearted stranger saw the NewsHour piece and offered to anonymously pay Hall's first month's rent.

The good Samaritan shared the reason for the donation in a statement to PBS:

"Individuals who do kind things, unselfish things, just want our members of Congress to do kind things, unselfish things, too, because it makes our democracy stronger and better for everyone when Congress does it for the whole country, for all of our fellow Americans. That is why we have a government. And contrary to what some may think, yes, people ARE entitled to food and housing and some little bit of happiness in the richest strongest country on Earth."
