Help me support 3 homeless teens :)

Everyone goes through hard times. When hard times hit someone who is already struggling sometimes the blessings of others are the only thing that can prevent them from being homeless.

I am Angela Parziale, a 22 year old college student who took in 3 homeless teenagers in August of 2012. God has provided for us every step of the way and I try as hard as I can to give them the love and support that they need. But in March of 2013 I experienced a serious car accident and I was unable to work or go to school. I lost my full ride scholarship and stipend that I used to pay for school and to support the kids.
Things were rough but we're getting back on track. I was working 3 jobs then went without a job for months, but I am now a Home Health Aid. We were almost evicted, but now our bills are up to date. I was blessed so much that I got to go back to school and GRADUATE with 3 degrees and 1 certificate. The kids are doing great! Kayla is looking for a job, getting her license soon, and graduating next year. The twins are both starting high school in August and practicing football more than ever before. They are all such amazingly dedicated kids.

Raising 3 teenage children more than half my age is expensive. According to USA Today, the cost of raising a child is on average $15,000 per child per year. Which is why we have raised the goal to $45,000. Your donations have continued to keep us out of the red. Our bills are paid and the kids are now saving up for Church camp and Football camp this summer. I just started my new job and can't thank God enough for this blessing!

I am more than greatful for my job, but I know that I can't do this on my own.  I have stepped up to do what I know is right and I need the support of our community behind me. Thank you for helping in any way you can and please continue to pray for us.

We will continue to post updates!

May God bless you and watch over you,
Angela Parziale
