Stephen Njuguna of Fred Lind Manor called me Friday to tell me that I would not be able to return home that day.
Not only that, Stephen said, but I am not welcome back at the Manor at all. I asked who had made the decision, and he admitted that the decision to leave me homeless was made by a committee of two--himself and Mark Mullen, the executive director of Fred Lind Manor in Seattle.
Of course, the Friday before Christmas is a terrible time to sort this problem out--everyone is rushing out the door--but I am doing my best.
Despite what Stephen said, I do expect to return to Fred Lind. Monday, perhaps.
I'll be spending the day today--Sunday--writing letters pleading my case, and also getting in touch with the state DSHS.
I know, it's Sunday, but I can leave a voice mail on my contact's phone and also send him an e-mail timed to be there Monday early a.m.
