A local woman who works with the Clarksburg-Harrison Regional Housing Authority will soon be taking a trip to the White House.
Rhonda Lindsey, with the 100,000 Homes Campaign, was selected to go to a celebration in Washington D.C. that honors the people involved with the campaign.
Lindsey was the only person in the area invited to attend because of the work that the Harrison County campaign did to end homelessness.
“Because it's being held at the White House they can only allow one person from each community to come, and I got lucky and get to be that person and I'm really, really honored but I'm also disappointed that the rest of the team doesn't get to go. It's been such a team effort and only one person gets to go. I'm really happy that's me but I'm also disappointed for the rest of the team,” explained Lindsey.
Previously the campaign went out into freezing temperatures to find homeless individuals in the county.
From those found many have been provided housing already.
Lindsey will be in D.C. on Monday for the celebration.
The next Harrison County homeless count will take place in August.
