Delphine needs assistance with household necessity.

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

Advisor: Virginia Hansom

Meet Delphine, a resilient single mother who pours her heart into providing for her two children. Despite working tirelessly at two jobs, she faces immense challenges. Delphine's 16-year-old daughter and 27-year-old autistic son share a cramped motel room, lacking even the basic convenience of a microwave. Each week, a significant portion of their income goes towards the motel's hefty $300 fee. Heartbreakingly, Delphine's efforts to find a suitable home for her family are thwarted by the cruel reality of being told she earns too much for a two-bedroom but too little for a three-bedroom. To make matters worse, they rely on eating out every day, adding to their financial strain. Imagine the relief and gratitude Delphine would feel with assistance to cover gas expenses and storage fees, providing a glimmer of hope and stability in their challenging circumstances.

Renee needs assistance with past due rent balance.

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

Advisor: Virginia Hansom

Amidst the rhythm of daily life, Renee a single parent, finds herself navigating the world alongside her nine-year-old daughter, a bright presence who attends Trevvett Elementary. Their world has taken an unforeseen turn as they navigate their daily routines. Renee has been in a state of unemployment for over a month now, finding herself enveloped in a sense of uncertainty. The support she anticipated, like unemployment benefits, still eludes her as she now deals with the potential threat of having hip surgery, leaving her in a financial void. It's as if the taps of support have run dry; there's no available cash, no familial safety net to fall back on. The child support, a crucial financial lifeline, remains unpaid. The occupation that once sustained her family, relying on a 100% commission model, was significantly affected during the tumultuous times of COVID-19.
