A Home for us!!!
Me and my 9 year old son are both victims of trauma, both diagnosed with PTSD, and participate in intensive therapy and trauma recovery services. Unfortunately I am disabled and unable to work or bring in any income. We get no child support and despite knocking on doors, making countless phone calls and sending countless emails, we have either been denied because I am unable to work or put on loooong waiting lists with no idea when or if it will come through. We have exhausted ALL other options, even the unconventional ones. Unfortunately, the way the housing system is designed in the Phoenix area, It has put hundreds out on the streets with no good options.
Over the last 2 years we have litterally been surviving from day to day.
Our entire treatment team has made it very clear that the life threatening, unclean, unstable places we have been forced to live in...are DETRIMENTAL to both of our recovery and safety, and that no recovery can happen until we have safe and stable housing.
With no income...we desperately need help putting a roof over our heads. We are faced with spending a 3rd summer in the blistering Phoenix temperatures...which has already led to 5 hospitalizations in the past 2 years.
If you can't donate, please share this link on social media, by email, text or anywhere else you can. Our pleas for help must be heard.
Since our circumstances have been a direct result of the state of AZ and Miracopa County significantly
cutting costs and funding for housing programs. I urge you to also write to our congressmen expressing the dire circumstances these political decisions have created in ours, and hundreds more lives.
Without donations, support and awareness, our futures wouldn't be as bright.
We sincerely appreciate ANY assistance, every little bit counts!!!
May the Blessings Be,
Audrey and Pharaoh

I have already completed several of the thank you gifts...and my goal is to create something special and individual for each one of you to show the gratitude we both feel for all of your help.
Since each one of these pieces are handmade, and I'm taking time to make each one unique...it may take some time before I get it to you, but please send your shipping address so I have the opportunity to thank you personally.
You are all so precious and loved!!!
