(MOBILE, Ala.) - A disabled veteran and his autistic son are trying to figure out where to live after they were evicted from their home.
Lloyd Herbert and his son Jacob live in a home paid for by FEMA. They moved in after they were forced from the home in Pascagoula, Miss. following Hurricane Katrina.
Herbert said he was supposed to have the option to purchase the home, but that was never given to him.
Sunday, more than a dozen people who didn't even know the Herberts showed up to help the family move their stuff into storage. State Representative Napoleon Bracy rounded up the group after his wife met the Herberts Saturday night.
"I could have never done this by myself. I was trying. I did the best I could, and that's when they saw the need and they stepped up to help. I thank these people very much for all their help," Herbert said.
Herbert said him and his son will stay in a hotel Sunday night and figure out what to do on Monday.
