Good Samaritan helps homeless couple

CONYERS, Ga. -- A couple who has been living out of their car for weeks has received a helping hand after their story was featured on 11Alive.

William and Sharon Johnson have been homeless since their landlord raised their rent. Last week, 11Alive's Kevin Rowson shared the story of their chance encounter with a Conyers Police officer.

After the story aired, an anonymous donor put the couple up in a motel for a week and gave them some gift cards to help get by, according to police. The Good Samaritan is also working to help the couple find a permanent home.
