Opportunities for Kindness
Welcome Warehouse is working with a single mom and her child who need help to prevent an eviction.
-The mom had major surgery in April because she suffers from a life-threatening chronic disease. There were severe complications during surgery and she was on a ventilator for several days.
-She is home now but continues to have complications and her recovery has been longer than anticipated. She is unable to return to work until mid-June.
-Her short-term disability benefits have expired and she will go at least 3.5 weeks without pay. She is unable to pay her June rent or cell phone bill (she has no land line).
-The landlord is unwilling to accept late payments. The mom has reached out to numerous organizations but none are able to assist for 4 weeks or longer.
-Please click on "I CAN HELP" to donate if you would like to contribute to help meet this need.
