Supporting a Wonderful Family

I am a community school coordinator at East Kentwood High School and I am working with a family who is in desperate need of support. 

 This is a wonderful family who is working hard to break down stigmas and overcome difficulties all while placing a focus on education to become successful. 

Mom has worked extremely  hard to find stable employment and recently found a job she loves! But she is now facing another hurdle.  Her car breaks have gone out, making transportation to and from work another barrier. 

Any support you could provide this family would be greatly appreciated and I know the family is grateful for any help received. 

Below is an article on homelessness in Kent County but specifically showcasing the difficulties of this family in particular.
