'A Christmas miracle': Once homeless, a family finds a new home just in time for the holidays

Published: Thursday, December 19, 2013 at 04:59 PM.

As the Tew's case manager, Abbott regularly checks in on the family, asking if there's anything they need or want during the holidays, but Melissa refuses. She already has everything she could need.

"I don't need anything else," she said. "I've already got my Christmas present."


  HOW TO HELP: The Tews said they could not ask for anything more, but are still without a washer and dryer. What little money they make each month is spent going to the Laundromats. Donations to Opportunity, Inc., supports families such as the Tews in giving them shelter and the chance to turn their lives around. For more information, visit www.okaloosawaltonhomeless.org.
