Help the Singletons Keep their Family Home

Donation protected
We have a CALL TO ACTION for this amazing family, the Singletons. They have an opportunity to purchase the home they’ve been renting for 13 years. This house holds memories of all of the children and grandmother, along with a memorial to son KJ who passed away tragically at the age of 12, in 2018. We know this past year has been tough financially for everyone and the Singletons are no exception. The current owner has set the asking price at $89,000 and while making the payments would be feasible, the down payment and all the fees that come with closing on a house can be overwhelming, and at this point impossible. However, we know the spirit of generosity in our community and humanity can accomplish miracles. Please give whatever you can to help the Singletons not only remain in their home, but to call it their own.

My name is Lindsey and I live 3 houses down from the Singletons. My then fiancé and I moved in down the street from the Singletons 4 years ago, at the beginning of the summer. Summer is the perfect time to get to know your neighbors, especially when you have a dog to walk. With each summer we've gotten to know our neighbors, the Singleton family, more and more.  When Christmas came that first year, we were given a Christmas card in our mailbox by the family. We get one every year. They are the kind of neighbors people wish for. We are incredibly lucky.

Meet the family: LaSondra “San” (mother), Sandra (grandmother), Ashley (30), Christopher (28), Jordan (22), Shantelle (18) and Angel (13). And then there's KJ, whose favorite color was green, which you’ll see in the photos of his memorial. KJ left this world in May of 2018 due to complications with Leukemia. You can read more about KJ’s story here:

We see the daughters on their daily walks, with their nieces, nephews and Grandmother. Grandma Sandra and Shantelle sit on the steps of the nearby church and have long talks about life- past, present and future. The girls spend time talking with Sandra to keep her mind sharp as she has developed Dementia. San is her mother’s legal caregiver. One of San’s concerns about moving is this is where her mother is familiar and comfortable and everyone on the street knows who she is. San's granddaughter Jaimie, 7, plays soccer with our son and shows me all of her dance moves and cartwheels. Christopher got married last year, which was a huge joy during the pandemic year, 2020. He loves spending time with his son and working with his hands. Ashley lives across the street with her own children. It’s nice being able to be so close to the whole family. Jordan and I have the same birthday, 10 years apart. We’re both Aquarius’ and now exchange gifts and hugs with one another. Shantelle just made the life choice to be vegan and started volunteering at the nearby animal shelter, I Heart Dogs. Angel and I share a deep love for steak and she tells me about the essays she has to write for school. We're both porch families and wave to each other every single time we pass by, and it never gets awkward. 

Through the pandemic a lot of families have been hit hard, financially and emotionally. Yet like all of us, it helped families and communities to grow stronger together. Family matters. Having something to call your own and to share with those you love has become even more important and cherished.

The Singletons instead got news that their landlord was going to sell the house they have called home for 13 years. This was a difficult scenario for them to envision with all of their memories of KJ. The Singletons spoke to their landlord asking to sell them the house and the landlord is willing. This is an incredible opportunity for the Singletons to own their home where they've lived and held KJ's memories close. The landlord is asking for 89,000 dollars for the home they have already paid $132,600 dollars into. The suddenness of this opportunity on the heels of a global pandemic has found the Singletons short on the initial cash for down payment and the high closing costs of purchasing a home. The landlord, while willing, wants to sell the home quickly which adds even more pressure on the Singletons.

Please help us to keep our neighbors in the house they call home. Help them to maintain their stability and foundation of a community where everyone knows their names. They deserve this house, they deserve this call to action. You can be part of positively changing the Singleton’s lives forever by donating to this cause.
