My family and I would like to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Words cannot express what you have done for us here. We have been so stressed out from our situation, we did not know how to pay bills and rent. With your help we can take a huge step forward towards recovery. Please know reading this good news brought tears to my eyes, gave my wife a huge breath of relief and our 1 year old still wonders why he can not eat mamas house slippers lol. But for real this will help towards his needs as well. Please know you have done some real good for our family so again thank you thank you thank you. Love The Carothers
Coronavirus: Loving Family of Three Needs rent Help
I am a father and husband to my loving wife and our beautiful 9-month-old boy. I worked as a bartender for a Marriott hotel, but was furloughed recently due to the pandemic. My wife is currently staying at home with our newborn infant to take care of him.
We lived paycheck to paycheck, having very little to put away in terms of savings. We cannot afford to move, and we have no other options for our current situation. We need help to cover rent till the hotel I work at opens back up. We have used all we have to cover all our bills, so we are asking for help with our rent because we have no other choice. My wife and I have to do everything in our power to secure a good life for our son, and this funding would help us with that tremendously.
This grant would tide us over until my job reopens, which will hopefully be soon. In the meantime, we absolutely need to free up some more funds in order to take care of our son. My wife and I have given our family the best foundations possible to succeed, but we need a little extra help if we are going to give our son the life he deserves. Thank you all for your understanding and compassion.
