Make Room

THE STORY:

Marlene Sigar, a single mother, and her two daughters live just outside Nashville. She has been working hard to support her daughters and move forward after her 10-year-old son, Jacob, died of a brain tumor. An adjunct professor at a community college where she teaches three economics classes, she spends 75% of her income for rent and does not earn enough to pay off her son's funeral expenses. This month, Marlene is telling her story to help shine a light on America’s rental housing crisis.


Your dollars will support the families via the Make Room campaign, sponsored by Enterprise Community Partners, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization. Once we reach our individual family goals, additional donations will help us advocate for the 11 million families across America struggling to afford a place to call home.


Please note: your contributions to the to the families are not tax-deductible, however contributions to Make Room (ie, funds donated after family goals have been met) are tax deductible.
