September 6, 2007-- Charlie Silvey, 21, recently lost his job at Jiffy Lube because he burnt himself and lost his temper. He and his family have been homeless for more than three months now. Charlie and his wife, Michele, have two children, Ka'Mel, 3, Derek, 18 months, and one on the way. They have exhausted all the help resources in town and resorted to panhandling bar patrons on 9th St. to make enough money for a hotel room. They sent the kids to live with Michele's parents in St. Louis in mid August to keep them off the streets, but very little has changed since they left. They live day to day and have been turned down by many potential landlords because of bad credit and Charlie's criminal background.
