FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Omni Tinker received keys to a new apartment just a day after her original unit was destroyed.
"I didn't know what I was walking into when I came back," said Tinker.
Tinker and her 18-month old son were away when a woman drove into Tinker's apartment at the Villages at Hanna on Sunday, July 26.
The Fort Wayne Police Department said they received a call that a vehicle crashed into Tinker's unit at 5:38 that morning.
Tinker said nearly all of their belongings were destroyed in the crash.
"I tried to go in the apartment to see if I could save anything, but everything was in shreds."
The apartment's resident advocate, Chrisy Pope, reached out to St. Henry's Catholic Church, Fort Wayne Fire Department Station 9, J29 Hope, Erin's House for Grieving Children and A Hope Center to source home items for tinker as quickly as possible.
And they responded.
"She ended up with a new bed, new sheets, a new comforter, new pillows," said Pope.
Tinker even received new diapers and a playpen for her son.
Though more items are to come, Tinker is still in need of more items that haven't been replaced.
