Me and my daughter wants to thank you so very much that helped donated to save us from being evicted and now we can continue to live safely and secure at home. We really appreciate everyone that donated to us to make this happen. You are forever greatful!
I'm a Single Dad with a Baby Girl. I Was Furloughed by COVID & if We Lose Our Home, I'll Lose Her!
I am a father to a beautiful 3 month-old baby girl, and I am going to be straightforward here; we are currently facing eviction because I was recently laid off. This has caused our bills to pile up and now we are past due on rent. Trying to find jobs has been really tough, and we are barely making ends meet, especially in regard to our rent. We absolutely have to keep a roof over our heads before we can worry about anything else.
We need this grant to help pay for our overdue rent, which is a month behind. If the rent doesn't get up to current soon, then we will face immediate eviction. I'll have to live in my car, but there's no way I'd let that happen to my daughter. If I become homeless, I'll have no choice but to place my baby in foster care, and if that happens, I don't know when or if I'll ever get her back.
The emergency funding I'm requesting will help us get back on our feet, and since I'm about to go back to work, I'll do whatever I have to do to make sure that we are not facing a situation like this ever again. I cannot lose my daughter or let let her grow up on the street and I will fight for her every day of my life, but right now we need all the help that we can get. I want to look my daughter in the eyes one day and I want to say to her: 'You are here today because of the kindness of complete strangers, never forget to return the favor.' Thank you all for considering our application.
