Homeless Family Seeks a Safe Place to Call Home

My name is Chapri Kelly and I am a 36 year old mother of 3.  As of September, we have been homeless.  For the last 4 years, I rented from a well-known slumlord. 

Our apartment had leaks, broken appliances, roaches, and mice.  None of my repair requests were ever answered.  Instead, they sold the house and issued me a notice to vacate by the end of August. 

As a single mom facing this health and economic crisis, I need help securing safe housing for my children.  Your donation would help me pay for rental application fees, first & last month’s rent, a security deposit, and our basic needs for a few months as we get ourselves back on our feet.

If 100 people donated $100, my family could finally find stability. It would mean the world to me if we could provide a healthy and supportive environment for my kids to grow at this crucial time in their lives. 

With a stable home, my children can get a piece of their lives back. Going through this crisis has made us all appreciate the little things that so many take for granted -- like having your own room, a bed to sleep in, a table to eat meals, and walls to hold our memories, happiness and love.

Your donation can give us these small things again. You can help a child fullfill her dream of becoming a scientist and trumpet player. You can help her brothers have a space to study to become engineers and architects. 

So many beautiful outcomes start with us just having a safe place to live and call home. With your donation, you'd help a family stay together and thrive. You'd help a mother sleep a little better at night, knowing her children are safe, happy and healthy in their own space.

Donations of any size would be deeply appreciated — thank you for considering us in this difficult time.
