‘She Won’t Ask For Any Help,’ Says Friend Of Jail Chaplain Who Needs New Roof

DETROIT (WWJ) – Friends and family are looking for divine intervention to help a long-time volunteer Wayne County chaplain with an urgent need.

The recent heavy rains have made things worse for the 80-year-old reports WWJ’s Stephanie Davis.

Wayne County jail Senior Chaplain, Almeta Bastities’ home is in need of a new roof and some other minor repairs. The recent down pouring rain has made the situation more dire.

Assistant Chaplain Anita Campell is a friend who’s leading the fundraising effort.

“The roof is the main thing, whenever it rains she has six, seven buckets that she puts down to catch water, and it’s discouraging to her, and she’s such a servant, she won’t ask for any help, but I believe, as believers, and those who know her, we should definitely reach out and help her,” said Campbell. “We have to do something, and we can if we come together. The first order of business is that roof and pest control – probably that first.”
