Jackie is just the beginning.
Check out our story below and please support us if you can. Jackie is just one of many women we can help with the resources of this project. Your donations will help make a house a home for her and many other wonderful women.
Here's the Deal.
One day a homeless girl stopped me in the subway. I was honest and told her I didn't have any money, but that I was on the way to a job interview. If I got the job I would take her our for Chinese Food. That was eight years ago. Her name is Jackie and since then she has slept in:
- The subway station
- A halfway house (where a housemate once spit in her face)
- Now the YWCA.
Six years ago I lost that job and couldn't help her anymore, she came to my house everyday with groceries, words of encouragement and support until I found more work.
Now Jackie is moving into her own apartment:
Last week Jackie and I went to Target and made a list of everything she would need to live on her own. So now need to throw Jackie the biggest housewarming ever. She needs:
- Cleaning products.
- You name it.
Jackie is the sweetest person I know and you will feel like a million bucks just by pitching in. Mouseover to watch what happens to Jackie when you take her shopping for a party dress.:
