*In what appears to be an unfathomable act of inhumanity, a Lake Horn, Mississippi landlord has driven a woman with triplets on the way from the home she was renting with her two small children.
Now, she and her family say they have no place to sleep.
Chevis Poole, 28, was evicted from her home for not paying her rent for the past few months. She expects to give birth to her triplets any day now.
Poole says she has gotten some community support since WMC Action News 5’s Jerry Askin shared her story on Thursday, but it’s not enough to suffice. The destitute mother says she’s grateful for all of the calls, emails, and donations she’s received.
One kind viewer even donated a U-Haul truck on Friday morning to help with the move.
Chevis Poole fell behind by nearly $4,800 in rent and eviction court fees. She had a job at a local bank, but was put on bed rest and unable to continue working there. With a job intact, she planned on having one baby, not triplets, especially since she had no help from In Vitro Fertilization.
While her boyfriend’s family has agreed to take in her two kids, they live in Greenville, Mississippi, and Poole won’t be able to make that trip herself anytime soon.
“I can’t go to Greenville because that’s almost three hours away from my doctor,” she said.
Despite the challenges staring them in the face, the family is somehow staying positive.
“I just feel like something is going to work out for us,” said Jarrell Layton, Poole’s boyfriend.
