A friend of ours from our church became homeless awhile ago and she started to stay at the mission. We let her come use our shower and our stove about once a week. One time she invited some of the druggies she is "ministering" to our house to use our phone and computer for something. One of the ladies was clearly using drugs and been kicked out of a rehab program and was looking for another so she wouldn't go back to prison. After they left we explained to our church friend she can't be bringing people to our house. She just insisted she wouldn't bring anybody really bad to our house. But then today the druggie showed up alone and begged us to let her stay. She finally left after my husband threatened to call the police. Now I have to be terrified that this druggie is going to show up again when my son and I are here alone and my husband is at work. I have to live in fear in my own home!

I can understand your concern but if she's worried about not going back to jail, she's not going to show up at your house for you to call the police and send her to jail. Keep your guard up but try not to worry about it to much.

That why you have to use foresight for such situations. It's too bad this has happened.

People are responsible for their own actions. Your homeless friend is not responsible for what this "druggie" does no more than you are responsible for what your husband does.
