Hello my name is Maggie.
I am one of Katie’s best friends and wanted to reach out and humbly ask for financial help and support for her.
Katie is a victim and survivor of domestic violence and sexual assault. She has been denied access to the home she bought that is under her name. Katie paid all utilities and bills by herself working very hard in the serving industry even while being very far along in pregnancy. She has been denied access to her home for 4 weeks now and all her possessions in it and will continue to be locked out until 11/15. Locks on the home have been changed and police will do nothing even though changing locks on the owner of the home is against the law as told to her by a police officer who took her call and met her at the home when she tried to retrieve her things.
Katie is now being threatened to be taken back to court a second time for custody which she has absolutely no money for. She and her families funds have been depleted on the $4000+ she had to spend for a attourney to fight for custody of her son. There are a lot of other unlisted fees as well. Katie has been unable to work the past almost 4 weeks due to due to her employer and managers being harassed while at work. They agreed her safety is top priority and she should not return until she can do so safely.
I wish I could say more about the situation as a whole.
Katie is a extremely humble hard working mother, daughter, sister & friend who I personally watched build herself up from the bottom years ago. I’ve begged Katie to open this for herself for help from the community but she has felt to ashamed and to embarrassed to do so as many women in her situation have been.
We have children and find it ridiculous to waste money on court fees which should go to our children over anything but sadly if she does not persue this all child custody changes will be granted if she doesn’t fight for her son AGAIN.
Katie is responsible for all attourney fees, her mortgage, items and food for her child as well as for herself.
She had to leave her home with nothing and is unable to reenter the home to obtain her belongings.
We are asking for assistance with these expenses while she tries to catch up.
Please share and consider donating to help her. Please help if you can and let her know she is not alone in this and that she has a community of people who love and support her.
If you prefer to help via Cash App / Venmo I’ll list them here.
