I am a single mother of 4 great kids. In April of 2016 I decided to relocate my family to Baton Rouge Louisiana. As a teacher, I felt a strong desire to come here to teach. On my way here I was contacted and eventually hired to teach at a local elementary school.
Theh August of 2016 happened. We had just gotten settled when the home we were renting was affected by the flood. Needless, to say I was stressed. Fortunately, a coworker that did know me at all offered to allow us to stay with her family.
After staying with a family we were blessed to be able to move back into our rental home. However, there is now a rodent infestation due to the flood causing access to the house. Although the rodent issue is something that can be rectified over time, the safety of our neighbourhood is not. Last week, while thankfully my children were at summer camp, I was home alone when two intruders broke in through a window. While I wasn’t harmed and nothing was taken, it has become very apparent that this neighbourhood is no longer conducive for raising children. I fear both day and night that the intruders will return and we might not be as lucky next time. As a single parent, and a female, I feel the best thing that I can do for my children and their safety is to move to a better neighbourhood. It is for these reasons that I am asking for your help! I have been approved to purchase a home in a safer neighbourhood with better schools, and I have come up with most of the needed $9000. With that being said I am still in need of $2,200. If just 22 of my fiends would make a one time contribution of $100 all my work will not be in vain. As a teacher I have worked hard and sacrificed in order to make this dream a reality for my family. Thank you in advance for you help and consideration in securing God’s plan for my family. Even if you are unable to contribute please share our story on your page or with family and friends.
