Help Maria care for her son and grandkids

Hey.  I have recently been put into contact with a proud grandmother who, for security's sake, we will call Maria.  Maria's son recently suffered a brain aneurysm and has not been able to take care of his children.  He left them with his ex-partner in Tijuana who had substance abuse and mental health issues of her own.  The situation turned abusive for the children and Maria knew she had to act for the children's sake.  For their security we are not putting any identifying information or pictures here.  They are in part fleeing the heavy presence of la mafia en tijuana. 

They are asking for money for essentials such as food, rent, and wifi for education.  They are currently in a hotel being put up by a local non-profit who has given then only so many days of support.  Maria wants more than anything to get her children set for education.  She cannot work because she is busy caring for the children and her son, hospitalized and with increasing medical bills.

Any support you can give is appreciated.  Proceeds will GO DIRECTLY to the family and help immediately pay for essentials with the goal of gathering enough money to rent them an apartment temporarily.  

We are working to get her a case manager so she can be helped with LA social services but they have, somewhat understandably, been very slow to respond.

Thank you and, begrudgingly, god bless
