Support for laid-off Mother

Organized by: Sharon Chairs

My name is Sharon, and this is my story… I am a single mother raising an awesome 12 year old boy! We used to own a home, which we lost during the floods caused by hurricane Katrina. Since losing our home, my son and I have moved from apartment to apartment making it work. After years of working and saving money for my son and I to buy another home, we were FINALLY ready to make a down payment on a house! We found our perfect home - just big enough for the two us and our dog of course  Then I got the bad news…. I was laid off. I work in the Oil/Gas industry and due to the recent prices in gas dropping, my company had major layoffs. Nearly 500 employees were let go and they’re still laying people off. The lease on our apartment is ending soon and I had to break in to the money I had saved for the down payment on a house. I begin working again soon, but now the down payment money for our new house has diminished from our savings. As any homeowner knows, buying a house is very expensive and coming up with a down payment, inspections fees, and closing costs adds up. Please consider helping us reach our dream of becoming homeowners again. Having a stable home for my child is my only wish. With much love and appreciation - Sharon
