Hi I just received a call from this single mom who has been staying in motels because her sister got a boyfriend and her and her kids had to leave their shared apartment unexpectedly. She originally came from West Texas to get away from a domestic violent situation and moved in with her sister. She is waitressing and doesn't have a car. She ran out of money today and her kids get off the bus at 3:50. She needs money for her motel room for a couple more days until she can get into a shelter. Her plan is to go to the police and have them find a shelter that will take her but I wanted to see if her room could be kept through the weekend. The cost of the motel room is $65 per night. Requesting $195. It would be very helpful to get her through this weekend until further help can be found on Monday for housing.
