The Coronavirus is already hurting moms and kids on the edge of homelessness by devastating their incomes.
A LETTER FROM VINE MAPLE PLACE:
Here’s what’s going on . . .
I just got off the phone from speaking with a worried mom named Angie.
Angie waits tables at a local restaurant 37 hours per week. She was just cut back to only 3 hours per week for the foreseeable future. The virus is forcing Angie and her two kids into homelessness.
How can Angie pay for rent, food, and daycare now that schools are cancelled while working just 3 hours per week?!?
She can’t. But you can help her.
Your gift will provide emergency housing assistance to a mom like Angie who is unable to pay her rent. You’ll save her and her kids from being homeless.
Just this week I’ve already gotten more phone calls from worried moms like Angie. Their jobs are at risk. Kids are out of school and daycare is unaffordable. Plus, it’s still cold and wet outside. This is no time to be homeless.
There are no extra funds in our budget to meet this unexpected need. But your gift today will provide instant relief and safety.
May God bless you,
Michelle K. Frets
