Request Details

Help improve a child's safety/well-being
Normal Request
I am working with a single mom and her 2 children who are living in a trailer. Mom struggles financially and is on a tight budget.The childrens father is involved periodically but does not help mom fianancially. Mom's trailer is older and has needed a number of repairs since she moved in. Most of her monthly income goes to cover lot rent for the trailer. At this time, this is their only housing option. Mom recently got water again, however the hot water tank on the trailer is not working so they do not have any hot water. I got an estimate on a new tank and installation from a plumber that is sadly higher than I expected. The water heater has a whole in it and needs to be replaced at a cost of $600. The labor cost is $250. I am putting in a request for help with any part of this cost. I will look for other funding resources to cover the amount that is left. I am appreciative of any help with this.

Brenda: My neighbor who is a plumber might be able to help out. How many gallons for the hot water heater? We are guessing for a trailer it would be smaller than for a house.
