Help Homeless Single Mom with 4 Kids!

$10,235 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 80 people in 71 months
We are trying to purchase a trailer for our friend who is a homeless single mom we befriended late last year who has four kids (12, 7, 6, and 4). She will not qualify for an apartment right now because of credit issues, but she can likely afford the utilities (and lot rental) once we acquire this trailer for them and get it moved.

Our friend was the victim of severe domestic violence from her ex-boyfriend, who is now in prison. He was dealing drugs and beating her when she left him 2.5 years ago in order to protect her kids.

When we met her in early January, she was living in a hostel in a small room with no shower or cooking facilities, where all five of them slept on the floor. We were immediately struck by the positive attitude and joy that these children had, in spite of their circumstances, including threatening looks from neighbors and having their car stolen.

She has been living in our home and attending church with us regularly since early January, and she's ready to get her life in order: she still needs a job in food service, elder care, or translation that will make her enough to support her kids. Already, God had provided her with a nice minivan, and she's made progress toward getting her driver's license. She has resolved most of her legal issues related to the time when she was being abused. She now knows that God is the one in charge of her life.

We would like to buy a trailer for her family that we've found which is in absolutely pristine condition! It has a bunk for each child, kitchen, bathroom, living area, and master bed. The good people who are offering it are willing to accept far less than it's worth to help out.

Please pray for God's guidance about whether he would have you help to make a difference in this family's life. God bless you.
