Life Made New Ministries, a transition home for men, has been evicted from the house it’s been renting at 1224 S. Jefferson St. in Webb City.

Sam Harter has operated the faith-based organization, which was previously located in a former church on North Main Street.

Clark Wilson, owner of the property, said, “I tried to help him as much as I could.”

He and a graduate of the program, Aaron Rollow, were emptying the contents of the house on Wednesday, including a stack of beds, and filling a roll-off dumpster. Rollow said at one time there were up to 12 men living in the house.

Wilson said he is exploring options to sell the property.
