URGENT - Homeless Family (mom & 3 kids)

The Matthews Family has been displaced due to abuse, alcoholism, and hard times. Mom was a special needs student who dropped out in 11th grade. She has no skills, can't drive, no income, and was abused and molested as a child. Now, abandoned by her mother and stepfather (alleged molester), she and children no longer have a place to live. Agencies had to step in and remove mom and especially children due to alleged child abuse & molestation accusations. They are scattered with various other family members which is causing emotional imbalance for the mother. We have completed application with housing authority only to find that there was a balance of some $562 to be paid before she could be considered for placement. After paying this debt, we will still need to get furniture (beds, covers, towels, cooking utensils, table chairs, personal items, toiletries, etc.). She has NOTHING! Please help this mother who has no where to live and is in a sad state. She has no one to turn to or to provide assistance. She is emotionally drained, severely depressed, and in total despair. *My services after helping her get stable housing will include job training and assisting her in a job search. I will also provide parenting skills which involve how to assist school aged children be successful in school. This will be a new beginning for her and acquiring a minimal skilled job will be needed to sustain housing for her family. AGAIN, PLEASE HELP THIS FAMILY! THANK YOU FOR HAVING A HEART FOR THIS CAUSE!
