This person has left the following thank you note:

I want to thank everyone who helped fund my application from the very bottom of my heart. You have helped change our lives around and saved us from ending up back in an abusive household. When I told my daughter about the kindness of strangers that saved our place to live, she hugged me tight and told me, 'See, I knew it would be okay Mama.' I'll admit that I broke down crying. You gave us our freedom back to live our lives. Her birthday is next month and now I can save back to take her somewhere nice. Thank you again. Your help has meant the world to us.

I Just Escaped My Abusive Partner; Unexcpectedly Single Mom Needs Help with Rent.

My Story:

I am a recently single mom escaping my abusive ex of 15 years. I have a daughter who is 10 and she is my whole world. She loves art, video games and animals (especially dinosaurs). She aspires to be either a veterinarian, archaeologist, or a game designer. We have two tuxedo cats named Loki and Meowie-Zowie and a dog named Sadie Kane.

I fled my home with my ex in September after his abuse escalated to threats of violence. I barely had enough money to move us and we were living check to check, but getting by. That was until I lost my job a week before Christmas. It took nearly a month for me to find a place that was hiring after that, but I did and I'm working to get caught up. Unfortunately I do not make enough at the new job to cover the money I lost when I lost my job. I need your help with our rent.

Without help we could lose our home and be forced to move back in with my ex or into a shelter. The late fees are incredibly high here. By covering our rent I will be able to focus on finding a better paying job and will have the time and energy to spend with my daughter again. We will finally be stable and free from my ex.
