Liya Taylor Children

"Update to the story:

We have been able to negotiate with the buyers of Liya’s property for her kids to be able to remain in the home until July 31st. This means the clock is ticking for us to come together and show these kids they are not alone in the world. We are working together with  Elevations Community Land Trust to help secure a forever home for Liya’s kids. Every donation helps us to help them. We are blown away by the amount of support and outpouring of love and good energy this cause has stirred up. If you do not have the means to donate please considering sharing their story. The more people we reach the greater chance we have in making this dream come true!

We also need help in securing the actual home. We are looking to purchase:
4 bedrooms
2-4 bathrooms
Cherry Creek School District
Single family house or townhouse with small yard
If you know anyone looking to sell please reach out to Rachel directly at [phone redacted]"

I met Liya almost a year ago. She came to me to help her family make a move into a better school district for her son Sean. A single mother of her three children, Chantie, Nakia and Sean, she was dedicated to them every minute of her life. I could tell right away Liya was the independent strong type. A woman creating the life she wanted for her kids. She dreamed of giving them a house in a great neighborhood, with great schools, a house where there were enough bathrooms because poor Sean had to share with two older sisters!!

We were able to sell Liya's house and negotiated for them to stay in the house until they closed on their new home, set for June 30th 2020. On Tuesday June 23rd Liya was tragically killed in a car accident in Aurora. A heartbreaking turn of events for Liya’s family; most of all her children. Not only have they lost their mother, their guiding light, they have to give up possession of the house Liya sold, on July 3rd.

I met Liya's father this morning, through tears he said “We lost our rock. She was everything to this family.”

In this moment of grieving for the family I would love to bring our community together to help give them comfort in this time of such tragic loss.

For Liya’s children we have an ambitious goal of raising enough funds to purchase the house Liya worked so hard to give them.
