    Hi, I'm a mother of 5 but I have only one living with me. I just got out of jail in october. I was living with my cousin and had rooms for my children and I. While I was incarcerated my brother and his kids moved in. I am currently sleeping on the couch with my son (6 years old). Something happened to my son and he's acting out. I can no longer stay here. I don't have anywhere else to go with my son. I'm trying to go back to school online and I've applied for jobs. I recently applied for food stamps, tanf, and Medicaid to help with my son. I'm now a felon for the first mistake I've made, breaking the law. I'm struggling with my faith in God and reaching out for help. I've never accepted that I couldn't take care of myself or my children on my own until now. I would greatly appreciate it if you could email me even if you don't have anymore room for him and I. Any advice or redirection to another organization that could help me would be appreciated. Thank you so much.

    I am a mother of 2 ages 4 + 7 and am in need of your services. I have left my husband, because I am afraid, Afraid for me and my children. I know he is going to try to get my children from me. I have no family willing to help me, and I honestly don't blame them because I have left him so many times before and have kept going back. But I can't go back this time. Are you able you're willing to help me. I don't know if I qualify, or what the qualifications are. And what the process is. I've been to the courthouse to get a restraining order but it has not been processed yet. Can you please let me know if you can help me. I am staying with practically a stranger and can't stay here much longer. Can you help me? If so what do I do next

    I rent a house with 2 bedrooms. I am a 60 year. Old Christian woman, single, no kids. I’d like to help another woman. The rent would be a lot less than normal rents due to their circumstances. Please feel free to contact me at the email address listed.
