Parking lot prayers

$6,335 of $2,200 goal

Raised by 177 people in 14 months
It's getting harder and harder to focus, sleep is becoming nearly impossible because my heart is breaking thinking about this situation. Someone out there in Tuscon, Arizona in the 100 degree heat of the day and 89 degree heat of the night, there is a single mom trying to homeschool her special needs child while living in a car in a Walmart parking lot. I can barely type that without crying.
If they were her in Memphis I would round up a crew and sweep them up in a heart beat; but they're not, they're in Arizona and I'm praying to God to pull off a tiny miracle for them.
Her name is Julie and she is living in her car with her two boys and they're service dog. Her youngest son (13) has a mental disability and has to have 24 hour surveillance as well as his trained dog.
The family shelters are overcrowded and they are being forced to live in their car in a Walmart parking lot.
The night temperature there is 89 degrees and they are barely sleeping , covered in their own sweat.
They have government housing coming but it will be a month before it arrives. Julie has cried out and God has laid it on my heart to try to do something to help them.
We have been contacting extended stays and air bnb hosts to find a place for them in Tuscon. So this gofundme is to raise enough money to pay for a to stay for them just for one month to hold them over. The oldest son is looking for work, but without an address that can be very difficult if not impossible.
Her youngest son needs constant attention and so Julie and the oldest son have to devote most of their time to keeping him stable. I can't imagine how stressful this is for her. So I'm reaching out for anyone who thinks they could help relieve some of this burden from her.
If anyone would like to help them with food, clothing or hygiene products, they are living in a Walmart parking lot and would benefit greatly from a Walmart e gift card. Those can be emailed to chauncyschance@gmail.com and we'll make sure they get them.
If there's any encouraging videos or photos you'd like to make them we'll happily send those too. They really need their spirits lifted.

If you have any care packages you'd like to send them they can be addressed to:

Primavera Homeless Services at 702 S 6th Ave,
Tucson, AZ 85701

Just put a note inside the package that it's for Julie.

I can't thank you all enough for everything you've done to help with all the miracles we've seen through Chauncy's Chance. My prayer is that God will use this small miracle in mighty ways to have a huge impact for His kingdom. Thank you all so much!

I can't thank you enough for the support you've given this family. In less than a week they went from being homeless in a Walmart parking lot to being homeowners. As of today, Julie's boys are having to carry the full weight of the family finances as she has suffered a debilitating injury.

They had to get resourceful pretty quickly and started cleaning car headlights for money. They aren't making much but it's been barely enough for them to eat with.

I've never done a second campaign for a family but I believe in her boys and I think with just a little help for supplies they can start a small business and be able to better support themselves and their mother. So I've made a second campaign just for her boys here:

I know in my heart that if we just share their story to Facebook, that God will do the rest. These guys are heros in my eyes and I know that all they need is a little push to help them.

Thank you for so much for sharing their story and helping spread the word to support these incredible boys. We love you all so much!! God bless!

Hey all! In an effort to be super transparent, I wanted to fill you in on the handling of the donations on the back end for Julie and her family. I'm good friends with Julie, and together we decided that I would withdrawn and manage the funds for her. So far all donations have been wired directly from my account to them so that they were able to could go ahead and purchase the their new RV. Any additional funds will be handled the same way until they get their bank account setup and we transfer their account to the gofundme. I just always wanted everyone to know exactly how the money's being handled.
Thank you so much for the continued donations. Every bit helps them so much! Let me know if you have any questions. God bless!

Just listen to this phone call!! YES!!! This is what it's all about!!
This is how awesome our God is, in less than a week He has taken Julie and her sons from being homeless to providing them a home of their own. What?! How?!!! Because God is amazing, that's how.
As of today, with the money that was raised, Julie and her sons are the proud owners of a beautiful motorhome. Not only will they be able to afford the rent for the lot space, but the RV park is in a safe community that puts her youngest son the only school that can provide him the special needs classes he needs. How amazing is God!! Yes!!!! I cannot say it enough times!!
Just listen to Julie's voice and you can hear His goodness. Thank you everyone who made this miracle possible. I am so thankful to be part of such and amazing community of people. You all never cease to amaze me with your generosity. God bless you all!!

They're home owners!!!!
All theirs.

That is one seriously comfortable puppy. I can't thank you all enough for what you've done. The family is safe and sound in a hotel temporarily while they search for a possible home to rent. With the money that's been raised they now have more options and the first one they're going to aim for is a rental home. This will give her son an address to use for getting his work and once that happens they should have enoug h to get stable again and back on their feet financially.
There's a long journey ahead to them but I know God will vcontinue to provide. Until then, they are safe and fed and that's all that matters. Thank you all so so much! This will impact more lives than we will ever know.
Safe and sound
