Single Mother Needs Hand Up: Need 15.17 = Met
STATUS = 11 Deeders, from 5 different states, and 8 different local churches, have responded and donated $850. Funds have been transferred to local church partner and they are providing relief.
(updated 4.3.15 @ 10:55am)
We alert you this Good Friday of a single mother of two sons, 7 and 2 years old, in need of a hand up. She did not approach the local church and ask for help. A member of a local church partner engaged her in conversation, uncovered this need, and then turned to her local church for support. We love it when Christians seek relationships with others between Sundays and then turn to their local church for help when they need it. This is a perfect scenario!
The member of the our local church partner met this woman in need while shopping at Office Depot. This single mother works there and the two women struck up a conversation. Through this conversation the woman shared that she needed help with her rent. She went on to explain that she has been dealing with child custody issues in the court system and the costs have been too much for the money she is able to earn at Office Depot. She told the church member that she recently secured a job as a teaching assistant with full benefits and tuition reimbursement. She is really excited.
The issue is that she is currently $790 behind on rent and although she has a real and stable solution going forward, this back rent is just way too much for her to handle. If she is evicted she risks custody of her children.
The woman and her two sons live just blocks from the local church and we would like to help this church make this powerful connection.
