Olivia's Ballet at Joffrey in NYC

My daughter Olivia has been accepted to study this summer at the Joffrey Ballet School in NYC. She is a 16 year old, honor student who has danced all of her life and aspires to one day live in the big city and dance in a professional company.
This has been a hard year. Due to circumstances out of my control, my husband has been out of the household for over a year. I have been raising our 3 children on my own salary during this time.
God has been good to us and provides us with our simple needs. The children have been so understanding about the many sacrifices we have had to make this year, never complaining, always helping.
The Joffrey Ballet has generously provided financial aid for her ballet tuition, but it does not cover the costs of her housing and meals. Please consider helping cover the costs of Olivia's food and housing while she works hard to make her dreams a reality.
I am so very proud of the young lady and beautiful dancer she has become.
Thank you for your generous love and support.
