Hello my name is Charity. My son's name is Mekhi. He was born 6 days ago, Saturday September 17th. I am an employee at McDonald's and am currently on Maternity Leave (since September 6th until November 1st), but my job selfishly only offers paid Maternity Leave to managers. I've been homeless for quite some time now and couch crashing, even during my pregnancy. I have been on the waiting list for these apartments since February 2016. I was originally #49 and am now #18 as of 3 weeks ago. I have been told that I may be able to move in with my newborn between now and November of 2016, but without receiving any income I don't know how I, a young single-mother of one, would be able to take care of my son on top of taking care of myself and trying to move into our new home. I don't ask for much, anything would help honestly. Please help my cause.
