Mother with disabled child in need

Meet Diana who is a beautiful 11 year old girl with special needs.   She has been diagnosed with muscular dystrophy since birth.  She is unable to walk, has minimal movement in her arms, but she has normal cognition and is aware of everything that's going on.  I recently got to meet her mother Haydee and learned of their current situation, which truly broke my heart.  I learned they have been homeless for about a month and have been living in their van.  Haydee recently had her van repossessed and she and Diana had trouble finding shelter for a few days.  Thankfully, with the help of some very generous people, we were able to help get Haydee's van back, so they could start living in it again.  

I'm reaching out to you all because Haydee and Diana do not deserve to live in their van.  Haydee already has her hands full with trying to take care of Diana, but living in a van makes it that much more difficult.  They have been trying to get into an apartment, but most places are asking for up to two months rent based on her credit history.  I'm trying to raise funds to help Haydee and Diana get back on their feet and give them a warm place to live.  Up until two days ago, I learned they hadn't had a shower in three weeks.  

I know there are so many people in need around here, but I just ask you please consider joining me and helping out this single mother and her beautiful daughter get back on their feet.  As a parent of healthy children, I couldn't imagine trying to deal with all the things Diana has to go through while living in a van.

Any small amount of funds you can spare will go a long way for this family. Thank you all so much in advance for contributing and may God bless you.

Thank you!
