When Lisa Howell's apartment burned down in June 2019, she didn't know where to turn.
The 23-year-old single mother had worked hard to create a safe, stable and loving home for her 2-year-old son, Tazio, and
in the blink of an eye, it was all gone.
“My unit was engulfed in flames. I was literally in the middle of the street and I laid my head down on the ground,” she said. “
I felt so alone when it had happened. I didn’t know who to turn to
…I just wanted to cry and crawl into a corner and run away.”
Lisa was devastated. She lost everything in the fire…except for hope.
Thanks to the support of people like you, Lisa was given the financial, physical, emotional and spiritual support she needed to rebuild her life.
“You showed me
there are people out there who love me
and are going to support me,” she said. “That’s something that I’ll never forget…
it’s carved in my heart.
Today, Lisa and Tazio are settling into a new life in a new apartment with everything they need – including furniture, clothing, food and emotional support – to start over.
