Every Little Bit Counts.

Even If It's $1 . It Counts. 

Please Make This Dream Become A REALITY !

Cause:

This money will go toward mothers who are homeless and have been abused with no where to go. Often shelters seperate children from thier mothers, if there is not enough room in one area. This can be devastating....I know first hand, because I was one of those children. That is why I feel compelled to open a shelter that would keep mothers and their children together. The atmosphere would be an comfortable, spacious, efficiency room and/or 1-2 bedroom (depending on how many kids they have) with a private bath and kitchen, somewhat set up like a hotel room. This will give the family privacy and a sense of hope to feel like they still matter in the world.

In addition, I will provide several avenues for jobs, education transportation and support to being self sufficient. The familes will be allowed to stay in the shelter for 6 months, giving them enough time to work, save money and gather a plan. 

 

My Inspiration:

Many people might think people are homeless because they don't try. My mother tried very, very hard. She would be up from 9am to midnight searching for jobs on the internet, in person, you name it--she tried. The shelter we stayed in was very uncomfortable,and embarrassing. I was afraid that when I came out the shelter that one of my friends from school would see me. My mother struggled so much in her life time. Eventually she found a job that paid pretty well and that's how she makes a living. It took her almost 2 years to find a job. When the economy was bad it was hard. I'm very proud of any single mothers who are on there stuff. It's not easy.

 

Money will go toward:

Building 

Renovation 

Water   

Electricity 

Food

Furniture  

Transportation   

 

If I Get Extra Money I Will . . . 

  1. Get Activities Together For The Kids To Do (sports,cooking,arts&crafts e.t.c)
  2. Work on the children career. ( example;If the kids are interested in architect i will get architect kits.
  3. If they need clothes and shoes I will buy that.

 

If I Dont Reach My Goal  . . . 

I will donate to the local shelter in my community for women who are homeless, abused and have children.

Impact

This will help single mothers. You might think they can prevent this but they can't my mother tried every single day of her life to provide for us.
