Advisor: Sherika Chew

Samesha and her husband have 3 beautiful little boys and are new to the East End of Richmond.

They are optimistic about the changes but have been finding if increasingly more difficult to purchase basic household essentials and cover all of bills since her husband was laid off in November. Purchasing what they needed to get their boys back into school and starting in the new daycare has made them a bit short of what they need to cover their rent for March. Support with this request would provide peace of mind and a bit of a leg up as they get settled in to the neighborhood.
