HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- When you're losing your home, even a little help can make a big difference. This is something Lincoln Goodwin would know. As Justice of the Peace, Goodwin presides over eviction cases.
"They're actually heart-wrenching and each one I take seriously, absolutely seriously," Judge Goodwin said. "The judge cannot take a side in any particular case, but then again, that doesn't mean we leave our community behind."
That's why Judge Goodwin and his family donated $5,000 to a rental assistance program at Fallbrook Church. The idea is to help people like Brooke Newsome and her triplets.
"My faith was put to the test when it was like, 'Okay, it's time to get a new job in the middle of a pandemic,'" said Newsome, who became a single mother last year. "Anything and everything that could happen this year happened."
