While getting to know Iesha and thanking her for her bravery and willingness to help Officer Sioson, Iesha said she was just trying to help Officer Sioson get home to his family, and doesn’t think of herself as a hero. We learned that she herself is experiencing difficulty as a single mother of seven children who range from 13 years to 10 months old. She was recently renting a home that was sold off by the owner, causing her to have to move out without any place to go. She is now living in her vehicle with her seven kids while trying to get emergency housing. She is also behind on her car payments and is worried they will soon repossess her vehicle; truly leaving her homeless. After speaking with social workers, we are finding that emergency housing is difficult to obtain due to her having many children and needing a large residence. The El Cajon Police Officers’ Association, in conjunction with the El Cajon Professional Firefighters’ Association, are joining together with the Octoberstache charitable organization, in an attempt to get her emergency housing.
We are hoping to get public support behind Iesha and help her out of her financial hardship. We again want to thank Iesha for quickly stepping in and assisting our officer and thank you for supporting Iesha!
