Hope for the babies in the shelters
Organized by: Lovely Antoine
The purpose of this fund raiser is, to help women and children that are living in New yourk City shelters. I can speak from my lifes experience about how real the struggle really is for women that have more than on child. Going through the system when you have no place else to go but in the shelter, it's very overwhelming and depressing for most women I have met while living in a shelter. People will criticize you as a woman making you feel worthless and like you're nothing, but the fact that you're a mother you have to strive harder at life. I believe if more help and more resources where available to single moms, help with rent and housing, vouchers were easier to get and full time day care and jobs were available that would be of great help. My goal is to help get the single moms more help with housing, help them move into a house, apartment, help secure day care, and jobs for the sake of the children. If I can get enough funds to help 5 families at a time or maybe 10, to move into a new places, help them get on their feet, possibly pay 4 to 6 months rent for them making sure they can go out there and get a job or a training or even go back to school like I'm trying to do myself, that will help strengthen the community. This will be a great experience if we can make this happen, the shelter system is not working, no help is available for women and the children are suffering, if we can just help make a change life for single moms and the children will guarantee a better and brighter future. Thank you!
