Help Odilia Stay in the US

Odilia is a 17 old girl from Guatemala. Her father brought her to the States 3 years ago in search of  work and a better life. Her father has since been deported and Odilia is living on her own.  She manages to be a good student at Rome High school in her junior year, work 32 hours a week, and support herslef completely.  She has big dreams to finish high school, go to college and study art or music. However, Odilia's mom is ill in Guatemala and her family is asking that Odilia send more of her earnings back home to help cover the costs of medical treatments. Odilia is moving in with us to help cover her living costs, but we would also like to help Odilia obtain a legal citizenship. For that we have had to hire an immigration attorney who can help us navigate this journey. The legal fees will range from $5,000- 7,000 to cover all of the necessary costs. Would you consider helping our friend Odilia with her attorney fees? Any small amount would help, and we are all grateful for any help you can provide!!!
