Adam Garza worked as the house manager at the temporary housing facility in
However, since his arrest the church that runs the house has asked the tenants to find a new home.
Garza was arrested Friday in
As the house manager Adam Garza, was responsible for just about everything from collecting rent, to enforcing rules to even calling the police in case of an emergency but since his arrest, there's been nobody overseeing the house, something the church wont allow.
" To leave the house uncovered with no management no supervision we didn't feel was safe for any of the residents--It could have become a volatile situation and that's the last thing we wanted because we want it to be a safe place for people," said Pastor Deb Davis.
Pastor Deb Davis says that Garza's arrest left a void at the house, a void so big that the church asked all seven residents on Sunday that they needed to find new housing by today.
"He provided supervision and without him there we couldn't fill in that gap quickly," said
Most of the members in the house hadn't been living there for an extended period of time--a big factor in the churches decision.
"There were two men there who had been there long term the rest of them were fairly recent fairly short term sober--if sober," said
Although the tenants were asked to leave, the church is not turning its back on the same people they took in.
"This church has always been committed to serving the least fortunate in the community, it's historically what this church has always done, no one is going to be kicked to the curb," said
If anyone living in the house couldn't make new living arrangements, Pastor Deb offered to help.
"If they couldn't find housing by Wednesday to come and talk tome and we would either extend the deadline and or help them find other housing," said
Jeremy sparrow, one of the residents at the home doesn't know what his next move will be but he understands the churches decision.
"Acceptance is a lot of it. The Church has its reasons why and I Believe that we have to do what we have to do," said Sparrow.
As of this afternoon, only the two long term residents asked the church for an extension on their stay and the church has agreed to work with them.
