Sarah Arlon was celebrating the holidays Dec. 11 with three girlfriends. 
“We were doing it up at the Ojai Valley Inn!” she said.
As the group drove home along Ojai Avenue that evening, they spotted a woman carrying a suitcase, accompanied by her young daughter.
“We didn't know if they had a place to go or if they had missed the bus,”  said Arlon. “They said they were going to the shelter, I didn't know there even was a shelter.”
The woman and her daughter were heading to the Ojai Valley Family Shelter (OVFS), hosted that evening at St. Andrews' Episcopal Church.
