Jody Kiskaden said he’s “grateful for all that,” according to Fox19Now. He thought he was in trouble when the police arrived. Kiskaden has been down on his luck, unemployed, and his wife is pregnant again.
He said he’s trying to get back on his feet, but has had a hard time.
Since the homeless shelters in Newport are full for the winter, Kiskaden said he thought the tent was a better option to keep his family together.
Because of the generosity of Newport police officers, they now have a couple of days to figure out what to do next.
