This Park Hill student and his mother were involved in a situation that caused them need to leave their home to stay safe. They are currently staying in a hotel, and are hoping to find permanent housing soon. The hotel is working with the family to have a low rate, but money is getting tight. They are also in need of food, but the hotel they are staying in does not have a kitchen, so mom has to be strategic in what they get. In addition to that, the family runs a food truck, and is doing several events in the next couple weeks, and needs access to a kitchen once a week to bake to prep for that week's event. Mom is working in addition to doing all of these other things, and would be grateful for any help she can get.

DCCCA is working with a mother who has been homeless and living in a hotel for seven months. The family has been able to obtain housing and will be ready to move in this weekend. The last obstacle is paying off past due utilities so mom can connect electricity at the new home. Two of the children have been living with family and friends because there was not enough space at the hotel. Having this cost covered not only gets mom out of the hotel room, it will put the family back together under one roof. Mom has contributed what she can to the bill and has obtained assistance from community resources and this amount is what remains after other resources have been tapped out. Thank you in advance for helping this family get into a home and be reunited!
