James Schweikhard’s daughter’s school had noticed that she was arriving to classes late and appeared very tired, and when they found out why, they immediately called the police – but it’s not what you think.
Schweikhard was down on his luck in Oklahoma when he decided it was time to find a better life elsewhere.
So he and his daughter packed their belongings and moved them into a truck, then travelled across the country.
When the truck broke down in Denver, Colorado, that’s where they were fated to stay, so he enrolled his daughter in a local school.
The school came to find out what was wrong with the girl, who was repeatedly late and exhausted, and were shocked to find that she was living in a truck.
They called the police, who examined the truck and assured a nervous Schweikhard that they were just there to help.
And help they did!

Schweikhard and his daughter were sent to a safe place to stay while the truck was towed to a trustworthy local mechanic, who fixed it up for free.
Schweikhard has since found a job and in on his way to providing a better life for himself and his daughter.
