Homeless family + baby with medical needs
Organized by: Lauren Facciola
Trying to raise money to help a friends family get out of the shelter system. My best friend is such a hard working young lady that lost her job after maternity leave because her daughter was born with a deformity and she had to spend her days caring for a disabled newborn. Without income she eventually lost her home and was forced into the streets with her infant child. She has been in the shelter system now a little over a year and has been making every effort possible to get back on her feet. As a single parent with a disabled child it's not easy. She is not a bum and has found a new job in the field she attended college for however between student loans and other expenses of raising a disabled child her income is not enough to get back on track. Now her one year old has an upcoming surgery and she expressed to me her fears as she has to take off time from work and will have no income. The condition of the shelter she resides in is horrible! There was a leak in the ceiling and mold all over which caused the ceiling to eventually collapse. She has reported the horrible conditions but nothing has been done about this. She urgently needs help to get her one year old baby girl outed these disgusting conditions. They now need to be tested for mold and lead. Please help this family get out of these poor living conditions.
