Organized by: Debra LaMel

Ok Mom's we have a Marine mom who is in desperate need. She moved from Ohio to Bedford, Texas in July this year to live with her daughter (Who's also now is pregnant due in June) and her daughter's boyfriend. She is on the outs with her daughter and him and has been asked to leave the home she is on food stamps and this is her last month to get them. She is also on probation due to her being a former nurse and she did in the past misuse medication, but is now clean, she is on probation until July hence the reason for having a hard time finding a job. I have set this up in hopes to try and get her some funds till she can get on her feet and find a job and a place to stay on her own. Her daughter called the Police on her this past Friday but they told her she can not just kick her out she has to due the legal process because that is her residence. Her older child is the Marine who is stationed in NC who is fixing to head on a deployment in June this year. She has not told him all that is going on due to his going on a deployment and she does not want him stressing out. Does anyone have a extra room till she can get on her feet possible or would help her. She loves Texas and wants to stay and if not she will go back to Ohio to live with a friend but is still in need or funds to get there having no job or car. I would like her to get a chance here the sad thing is this, she also has no car. Our first priority is to get funds for her phone to stay on she has Sprint service and a way for her to get calls and check in with probation, the bill is due Wed and the phone is in her name and her daughter's is on there also, but they can not cut her phone off unless she does not pay it, her daughter was paying it. She has a appt on Wed to meet her PO for her check-in, she has no way to get there. Her daughter and her daughter's boyfriend have been living some where else since Friday but came back today went in and took the TV antenna so she can not even watch any TV now then they looked around and left. I will post a link to the go fund me account. I will have to somehow raise the funds and send them to her cause she has no bank account to add the funds to, if whom ever helps her has a Paypal I can send it to them and they can distribute it to her after sending it to there bank. With paypal it takes up to 2 weeks to get funds by check. But if I can send it to someone in the area who can get it to her until we can find her a Permanent place. I live some 2 hours North of where she is. Please if you can help it would be greatly appreciated. Her name is Amy Dawn on facebook if you want to reach out to her please pm me for her number on Facebook, if not text message me at 940-923-4399 any help you want to remain anonymous. Any info sent to me will be kept between me, you and her if you want it shared with her. She is calling her PO on Monday morning to let her know what is going on to see if they would even move her probation to Ohio if that is the route we have to eventually take. I will update it tomorrow evening or Tuesday morning.
