Partner: Henrico County Public Schools Office of Family & Community Engagement

Advisor: Virginia Hansom

Meet Candice, a resilient single mother of five who pours her heart into providing for her family. Despite working grueling 12-hour shifts, five days a week, Candice often finds herself struggling to make ends meet. Recently, she bravely took time off under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) to prioritize her mental health, a courageous step toward self-care. However, this decision has left her falling behind on her rental payments, adding to her financial burden. Your support could make all the difference for Candice and her children. By assisting with her rental expenses, you'll not only help her catch up on bills but also provide a lifeline as she transitions back to full-time work. Your kindness and generosity will ease the weight on Candice's shoulders, allowing her to focus on what truly matters: providing a stable and nurturing environment for her family.

Travis recently moved into Permanent Supportive Housing after many years of experiencing homelessness. Now that he is stably housed, he is ready to find employment and begin the next chapter of his life. However, the clothes on his back are all he owns.
