High Urgency Request
A single mom of a kindergartener needs immediate housing due to a fire. Belongings are almost a total loss. Mom has not requested assistance prior to this experience, despite mom having a lot of unfortunate events occur that were beyond her control. A year and a half ago, both of mom's retinas detached causing vision impairment among other medical issues. Due to this, employment and thus income became limited. As a result mom does not have savings to use towards emergency housing needs. At the urging of this school social worker, mom found an affordable apartment with an immediate move in date. The leasing office and mom completed a budget and confirmed the targeted apartment is a good financially sustainable fit for the family. Additionally, if able to rent, the kindergartener would not have to change schools. Mom immediately needs $210 (deposit & application fee) to secure the apartment. Within 10 days of approval in order to move in, mom needs $500 towards deposit and $1055 which is one month's rent and utilities combined. Any help towards this will be greatly appreciated.

Haley: We would love to donate age-appropriate books and toys. We could also babysit the kindergartner during the move or other times that would be helpful (we have a kindergartner in the PH school).
