Faith's Crisis Relief Fund

There is a family in great need that I'm desperate to help.  Faith is a mother of 3, a dear friend and a victim of domestic violence.  Two days ago her husband beat her near to death.  He then shot her in the stomach.  The bullet is lodged in her spine.  The Drs are going to remove it but have already told her that there is little to no chance that she will walk again.  Her parents are deceased and she has no one but her friends and YOU to help her.  I'm trying to raise enough money to pay living expenses for the family for a year.  We don't know how long she will be in the hospital and rehabilitation... it's too soon to tell.  Her 3 young children have only her.  We, her friends are going to try to keep them together, in their own home with one of our own to look after them until their momma can come home.  Foster care rarely keeps siblings together.... all they have is eachother.  Please, if you can, help us help this family in great need.  Thank you and please share.  On a side note, if you or someone you know is in an abusive relationship... do not wait.  Do not think it will get better. Get out!  Get help!  Stay safe!!!
