Pregnant homeless couple in need
Organized by: Jessica Fox
So not sure if any or you know but it is It Work Gives Back Week! I find it ironic that just a few days ago Jerome and I felt it in our hearts to take in a couple that is really struggling. I know that God is behind it all the way! This couple is amazing, they have been together for about 5 years, he recently got laid off from his job, but the company I work part time for, took him in which is great. His girlfriend is 6 months pregnant... They were kicked out of their house! Not only did the company I work for gave him a job they gave her a job to replace me as I will be leaving. They have been sleeping in their truck for the past week, eating just peanut butter sandwiches (let me remind you she is pregnant) I could not let that happen any longer so I talked it over with Jerome and we both felt a deep need to help. So we now are giving them a nice bed to sleep in, good food in their bellies, and a SHOWER that they haven't had in a week! They just started working so they will not get their first checks for another week, they are working very hard to get their own place. If any of you that read this feel a tug on your heart to help please contact me, any little bit will help them to get into a place they can call home. (Know of a place that is rather inexpensive $500 or below, donate to raise some money for a deposit and first month rent, furniture that you no longer need, extra food that can fill their new place when they get it, etc) Thank you for taking the time to read this!
