Give a kid a chance

Trying to help a former CPS kid move back into his home. He is a great young man that has had a great deal of misfortune in his life. Lost his grandmother and mother by age 13. Then his CPS appointed caregiver left him on his own before he was 18. He continued to go to school, walk to work and take care of himself. Until Harvey hit. He has lost everything, but some clothes and a few meager processions. He gets up and goes to work everyday even though he no longer has a place to live. He has received zero help from agency, except a Mormon group that helped tear out the flood damage.,and my sister’s family and my family. He never ask for anything. Anyone who knows me, knows that I rarely ask for any kind of help and I would never solicit funds. But this kid needs a break. And there is no way I can accomplish it all in my own. This little house wasn’t in great shape before, but at least it was livable. We are working with the legal system as he should have inherited it when his grandmother died. But with no adult looking out for him the paperwork was done. We are working on the back taxes, working with an attorney to try and show he’s the rightful heir and trying to physically put this house back together. We can’t do it all. We need help, he needs our help. He fell through the cracks with the CPS system. And he deserves a chance. He is currently couch surfing or living out of an old used car that we got for him. Please help anyway you can. Donating $5 or if you have a skill you can use to help me on his house, or any supplies you may have, anything would be appreciated! I’ll keep you updated!!
