A home for E'Dreana Black and her son

$220 of $7,200 goal

Raised by 4 people in 4 months
E'Dreana Black and her son became homeless just one week before Christmas 2018 due to a domestic conflict.   E'Dreana works full-time for the public school system in San Francisco; cares for her elderly grandmother physically, emotionally, and financially when possible; and is raising her two-year-old son on her own.  On the job, she not only provides safety for the city's teenagers, she advocates for them, encourages their education, counsels, mediates conflicts, and manages crises.

The goal of this fundraiser is to provide six months' security deposit for a new home.  Due to the competitiveness of affordable units in the San Francisco Bay Area, having a large sum as a deposit will raise our chances of finding E'Dreana a home.    

Many low-income workers struggle to maintain or raise their credit scores, giving them a disadvantage for obtaining the basic necessity of shelter. The cycle of stress endemic of lower-income workers living among the more affluent community of San Francisco perpetuates the problem.

The real estate market in the San Francisco Bay Area is the most competitive in the country.  Although rent rates have fallen slightly in 2018, many tenant-prospects continue to compete for more affordable housing.  Among city-subsidized affordable units, each unit receives over 200 applications. There is a waiting list for family shelters.  

E'Dreana works hard, cares for her grandmother who is like a mother to her and is diligent in providing safety for her son. Please help us ensure their safety.  E'Dreana keeps kids safe at San Francisco's school district.  Let's keep her kid safe.

Care Association plans, develops, and implements innovative strategies to alleviate economic burdens on lower- and middle-income households.  We serve households in the United States that pay more than 30% of their gross income on housing or are transient because of lack of affordable housing.  Any funds exceeding the needed deposit will be applied toward helping other households like E'Dreana's.  Donations are 100% tax-deductible according to U.S. tax law.
