Family in Crisis- Help Melissa get kids a home!!!

This beautful woman is a single mom raising 3 children without their father.  She is one of the most kind and compassionate people I've ever known.  Recently I went through one of the most difficult times of my life and she was there for me every step of the way.  She is a survivor of domestic violence and is fighting hard to give her children a better life.

Her family is in CRISIS.  Something terrible happened to one of the kids and they are now homeless and living in a hotel.  They are in desperate need of a place to live but she is so financially strapped that she doesn't have the resources to secure a place for them.

I want to help her find a place to live and give them the security they need, especially during the holidays.  We need to get them a place ASAP, they cannot afford much longer & will soon be in a shelter.  I would have them stay with me but we just moved to the Western Slope so she would not be able to keep her job. 

Please help with anything you can do.  Thank you for your compassion towards someone that really needs it.  I believe in the power of kindness, I believe we will help this family right away.  53066934_1607193525582686_r.jpeg
