I am a single mum, I have 4 children.
My oldest will be going back to yeshiva in a few weeks but until then he is in the shelter with us and there is not even a bed for him, he is not dealing well with this.
I have 3 other children 19,13 year old boy and 16 year old girl. We have one double bed for my daughter and Me and bunk Beds for my son's .
My children also have health problems. My 19 year old has Cerebral Palsey and epilepsy and suffer from claustrophobia so we struggle to help him in this small scary space. I'm scared he's going to have a fit and who know's....
my 13 year old has ADHD and when he comes back from school his meds have worn off he's climbing the walls they won't let me leave them in the room alone at all because of this, we are just trapped in there.
There is no disabled toilet or bathroom .. We share a bathroom, toilet and kitchen with other homeless people, some very disturbed and it's scary.... my 16 year old daughter has terrible allergies and asthma and is suffering in this small dirty environment.
I myself slipped on the dirty wet floor and was hurt badly! No one understands how bad our situation is, I wouldn't wish this on anyone. I hold my children and cry... I can't work due to the children being here with me and needing supervision, and we can't stay here for long either, it's a temporary solution, if you can call hell for your children a "solution"
I went back to Uni to re-educate myself only to have to drop out last semester due to all of this.
I will not be getting a private rent, as our needs are too complex so when we do PG get our home we will need to furnish the place, to give my kids the peace of mind that they deserve and a healthy and safe environment so I can go back to school and work.
Please please find it in your hearts to help us. Every bit counts. Every pound brings us closer to a stable life.
Thank you in advance.
