Family Needs Urgent Help After Apartment Fire

Caressa is a single mom of 5 beautiful children who were recently displaced from her apartment after a neighbor set a fire that burned the entire building down. 
Caressa was able to escape the fire with her children, but were left with nothing but their car and the clothes on their backs. 

To make matters worse, their apartment complex does not have any available units for those displaced by the fire. As a result, Caressa will have to find new housing, for which she may have trouble qualifying for because, like so many Americans, the COVI19 pandemic has significantly changed her financial situation since first moving into her home. 

While the American Red Cross is currently assisting displaced residents with hotel rooms and food, the length of their assistance is unknown. 

Caressa is in need of funds urgently to replace her and her children's belongings, as well as help her put down a deposit on a new apartment. 

This is a catastrophe that could effect any one of us at any time. Please, if you are able, donate to and share this important campaign to help Caressa and her children get back on their feet. 

Thank you so much in advance!
