Hello - I met Alicia at my work. She is a quiet, hard working lady. Gratious, soft spoken, comes into work and stays focused all day. I don't remember how I found out but Alicia is struggling to get out of a bad living situation. I don't want to go into extreme details as it would be too invasive. I can tell you she is living in a 1 bedroom with herself and 6 children. She works extremely hard and barely makes it pay check to pay check. Alicia wants to move to get her kids in a healthier and safer location. She finally made it through a long waiting list to qualify for some supported housing. This is an amazing blessing. What Alicia did not expect is how much the move would cost......even though it is reduced cost housing, she must pay first and last months rent plus a cleaning deposit. This will be $3000. This does not allow any finances for some furniture for the house and the kids. Alicia is working so hard to better herself and the lives of her children and it breaks my heart to think she might miss this opportunity to get to safer, cleaner living if she cannot come up with the money. She has no family to help her and I am not in a position to do this on my own so......I am turning to Go Fund Me as I have heard the site/organization have been able to do great things for people. Alicia and her 4 minor children will benefit from the donations provided. I believe there are 4500 people out there that could donate $1 each, or 450 people that could donate $10 each, or 45 people that could donate $100 each. The funds will go to get Alicia and her kids into their "better housing" and to buy essential furnishings for the home. Please help me to help Alicia. She is working to be independent of assistance and this will give her a huge leg up. She is also desperate to get her kids to safer and healthier housing. If we all do a little, we can make Alicia's dream come true! Thank you, in advance, for your support.
