How they got to this point is a long story, and I am not at liberty to share it publicly. They have a terrible rental history having almost entirely nothing to do with them, but a former spouse who managed to wreck their lives in almost every conceivable fashion.
Currently the mom, twin high school aged daughters, and the son (who plays on the TJ basketball team) are living in a small, dumpy motel.
We are trying to raise this money so that the family can put down a substantial security deposit, plus multiple months of rent up front, to offset their rental history.
The mom has had the same job for a long time. She works as a preschool teacher/day care instructor. She could easily afford around $1000 rent per month. But she doesn't have the first, last and security deposit. And with the rental history it has been impossible for her to find anyone to give her a chance.
We are hoping this campaign will offer that chance for them. This family has gone through a tremendous amount of stress and pain in the last few years. But they have kept their spirits up. Mom gets up and goes to work every single day. The three kids make their way to school everyday- well almost everyday....they're still 16-17 year olds :).
We are deliberately keeping this vague in terms of identity. Surely some of you will know who this is referring to. We would ask that you please do not alert the family that this campaign is going on. Please don't tell the mom or the kids. We DO NOT want them to know about this.
We want to deliver them a check and help them get into stable housing ASAP.
Please consider donating to this worthy family and helping them get back on their feet.
