I heard this story a couple of weeks ago, but wanted to share it with you all (as we can all use more good news!). Piedmont resident, Terrance McGrath, a local real estate developer, has been working for years on ways to help eradicate homelessness. While working on a job, he met Marie Mckinzie and Greg Dunston, a homeless couple living nearby. Marie and Greg were written up by the SF Chronicle earlier in the year.
McGrath decided to take matters into his own hands, and offered to allow Greg and Marie to live in his in-law unit rent free for as long as they need.
Needless to say not all Piedmont residents were happy with McGrath’s move. You can read all about the story here.
