VIDEO: Oregon Officer Pays Out of Pocket to Aid Homeless Family
On Sunday Portland police Officer Carlos Ibarra got a call to help a family who needed food and a place to stay. He ended up footing the motel bill himself.
The family had seven kids. Dad had driven back to Portland from Arizona, kids in tow, when things didn't work out down south, KATU reports.
Speaking little English, and hoping they might see someone they knew, the family went back to the house they used to live in.
No luck. The house was empty, and with nowhere to go, the family called police.

This happens a lot everywhere in the USA. Most Officers don't take credit and prefer to remain anonymous. Most police officers really do care about other people.
