Help Homeless Victoria & Her Son

$20,056 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 363 people in 14 months
Last night, Sonoma County California Sheriff's Deputies Ryan Patrick and Greg Bone were dispatched to check on the welfare of a 10-year-old boy. They met him and his mother Victoria. The boy and his mom have been having a difficult time financially and they've been living in their car.

This young man was dirty and was in desperate need of a shower. Mom recently picked up a job but is making very little money and they continue to live in their car. The Deputies took Mom and Son to a local hotel, rented them a room for the night with their own money and bought them some healthy food from the grocery store. Another Deputy who witnessed this  told us about it as Deputies Patrick and Bone would tell you this is just what they do for their community and don't want the attention.

We think this was an amazing show of kindness and an example of our loyalty and devotion to the community we serve. But more need to be done for Victoria and her son. 

The Sonoma County Deputy Sheriff's Association has started this GoFundMe account to raise enough money to get Victoria and her son out of her car and living in a home.  We ask anyone reading this to donate and help us bring these wonderful people to a warm dry place for Christmas and beyond.

Thank you for your consideration and Happy Holidays from the Sonoma County DSA.
