Help House a Homeless Family of Six

$7,753 of $7,753 goal

Raised by 29 people in 55 months
Chris is a single mom who is working to take care of her four children and disabled father (not pictured).

This family of six is living in a tiny trailer. The trailer has one bed and they take turns sleeping in the aisle.

Please help us raise funds to move them into a larger trailer with healthy sleeping space for everyone, a toilet, shower, and kitchen. We are working with an RV dealer to make sure we get the biggest bang for our buck.

Please consider helping Chris and her children! Any amount will be a huge blessing! Thank you!

Yesterday, Chris and two of her boys went down to see the new trailer"¦ It won't be long before we can tow it "home."

Every year, we're challenged to explain the true meaning of Easter to people with their backs up against the wall, to people who sense little hope.

Thank you to everyone who gave a better trailer to this homeless mother and her family. Hope dawns.

We're thankful to announce that the compassionate gifts of many people made it possible to buy this beautiful 31"² X 8"² trailer for Chris, her four children, and dad. It's bright, cheerful, and has enough space for everyone to have their own bed!

In case you missed it, Chris is giving her old trailer to a man who has been homeless and sleeping in the woods for three years.

We've learned that compassion is a miracle that gives hope to people every day.

Today is Palm Sunday. Christ said, "Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves." John 14:11, NIV

Our thanks again to those who gave of themselves through monetary gifts, prayer, and encouragement to make this happen. And here's a plug for Fife RV and Mike, our salesperson, who made it possible! http://www.fifervcenter.com/
A bright and cheerful trailer!

Chris nearly had a fire in her trailer this week. It was her daughter's turn to sleep on the floor and her stuffed bunny got too close to the heater. Its ears and face were singed off while everyone slept!

Two of them cram on a tiny sofa, one sleeps in a hammock, two sleep on the floor, and grandpa needs to sleep on the only bed. We are thankful they didn't have a fire-- all at the same time, their situation is more urgent.

Guess what Chris is going to do with her old trailer? She's giving it to a homeless man. It's the perfect size for one person and he already has a safe place to park it!

We still have $6,150 in available matching funds. Your donation will be doubled! Can you spare anything to speed up our ability to provide this family with a healthier place to live?

Please help us! Have questions? Please email us!

Thank you!
Ivan, Ann, Hannah, and Isaiah
