Emergency Relocation For Sandra

Rescue fund for Sandra Walker. This Go Fund Me is for a dear friend who is stuck in a tight spot in Pascagoula Mississippi. I am hoping to raise $1200.00 to hrkp her relocate to Columbus, Ohio where she has a job that she can return to. Sandra Walker became involved with a man who turned out to be abusive. She left her job to move with him to a small town in Mississippi. Isolated and without employment, she relied on him for financial support. Unfortunately he became physically violent and after enduring several instances of battering, Sandra finally called the police. The good news is that this man is now in prison, but the bad news is that Sandra is stuck without an income or support network in Pascagoula Mississippi. She works as a housekeeper at a small motel in exchange for a room. Her wages all go to pay for her rent at the place. It is as though she is stuck on an island. I have been sending her money from time to time for food, but this is not sustainable and she needs to get out of there. Sandra would like to move back to Columbus Ohio, where there is a job waiting for her at UPS. I am hoping to raise enough money to get her a Greyhound ticket from Biloxi MS to Columbus OH (Roughly $180), allow her to keep herself fed for a couple of weeks, and that will cover the cost of a place to stay. Extended stay motels in Columbus run about $375 a week. Meanwhile, a no-frills studio apartment in that city is $400 a month. I don’t know what the deposit is like for a place like that, but it would be over the top fabulous if this go fund me could generate enough money for her to rent a studio apartment right off the bat! Andrew and I met Sandra under tragic circumstances in the fall of 2016. Her 18 year-old son had been murdered by a couple of much older, terrible men, and his body was dumped near Capitol Forest. We reached out to her to offer a place to stay and to help her through the process of retrieving her son’s remains. This woman has endured more hardship than I can even begin to imagine, yet she is still full of gratitude and hope.
