My name is Ara Cordero. I am a former Palm Beach county school teacher.  I am creating this Go Fund Me for a former student  Yisly Ruano,  8 yrs old, whose family is currently being evicted.  Unfortunately, their dad contracted COVID in addition to loosing his job during the  pandemic.  Because of his legal status, he did not qualify for unemployment or any kind of assistance.  In addition, their youngest daughter was born in May 2020 and somehow contracted the COVID virus. Thankfully, they both recovered. The Ruano family  is originally from Guatemala. Their daughters are both highly intelligent and well behaved. Although, they live within very modest means, they are truly grateful to live in this country. I can not express how much love and admiration I feel for them. I believe they are wonderful role models for my children. In addition, their parents have a very strong work ethic. Yasly, their mom is one if the hardest workers I’ve ever met.  It is my greatest desire to help this wonderful family stay in their home. We have five days to raise the money. I truly hope whoever is reading this is able to help them. Thank you from the bottom if my heart!!! Ara
