Stranded/Homeless Family in Need

Hello everyone.

I am reaching out to you as a friend of Courtney Perry. I am hoping to help her and her 4 children, who are in serious need of our support.

After courageously leaving an abusive relationship with the father of her children, this hard-working mom recently found herself homeless with her 4 kids, ages 6-12. Living in the California Bay Area, where the cost of living is extremely high, she lost her job and soon after, lost her home. As she struggles with kidney failure and other health challenges, she is putting all of her effort into returning back to her hometown, Portland, OR to start a new life for her family.

On February 2, while driving to the store to buy supplies for her drive to Oregon, her van broke down on a mountain pass. Luckily a friend called AAA and she was towed back to town where she learned that the van will need $800 in repairs. She will either get the repairs or rent a vehicle that will cost her $500, not including trailor rental and fuel costs. She currently is in need of our donations to cover these costs.

At this moment she has very little money to pay for food and a hotel room for her children as the transportation gets sorted out. They are in immediate need or our support or they may face being on the streets by tomorrow night.

Courtney and her children will also need our loving support upon their arrival to Portland. If you are in the Portland area and know of free housing for her family while they get back on their feet, or wish to donate money to pay for hotel/AirBnB expenses, please donate here or contact me with any information.

Courtney plans to find work as soon as possible but will need a loving boost as she transitions into a new city. She's also facing some serious health problems and needs regular medical care for kidney failure.

No child should have to endure the challenges presented by homelessness. Through all of the challenging times, this family has struggled and fought to stay afloat; now they are in dire need of our assistance. Let's show Courtney and her children how much goodness is in the world and give them hope for a bright future.

I hope that this campaign is far-reaching and touches enough people to help us meet our goal. Thank you for your time and for your support.
