Help For Fire Fighter Latina Byrd


Latina Byrd, is a member of the  Fire Department’s Community Relations Division, a 14-year veteran, who received several commendations who also served in the military during Desert Storm and is a single mother of two children.

In 2014, Latina was accused and indicted for theft of colleagues money but was exonerated in 2016.  During this time until the present, the Fire Department has not given Latina her job back.

This action by the department has had a devastating effect on Latina and her family.  Her life has been irrevocably interrupted.  She has lost her home,  and in her current housing situation she is facing eviction and has no heat.  With her son in college not only is he not receiving the financial assistance that Latina worked so hard to provide, but the emotional stress has greatly impaired their relationships with one another as well as with others.
Latina is in the process of a long hard legal battle fighting for her and her son's livelihood.  But while in the battle she must live to see another day.  We, therefore, earnestly implore you to help Firefighter Latina Byrd FIGHT FOR HER LIFE BACK!  Your very best donation will help Latina in this battle that she did not cause.

Thank you for your financial support and your prayers!
