Brantley needs assistance with her electric bill.

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

Advisor: Virginia Hansom

Brantley, a devoted single mother, has endured the tumult of housing instability for the past four challenging months. However, she recently achieved a milestone by securing stable housing for herself and her two beloved sons. Despite this triumph, Brantley finds herself grappling with the weight of overdue rent payments, casting a shadow of uncertainty over her newfound stability. Your assistance with this expense would not only provide her with the immediate relief she desperately needs but would also offer her the peace of mind to wholeheartedly focus on nurturing her job security and ensuring a brighter future for her family.

Ms. Paula needs support with paying her security deposit.

Partner: Peter Paul Development Center

Advisor: Chimere Miles

Ms. Paula is East End neighbor who has volunteered in various capacities within our organization. She is a senior citizen living on a fixed income and was recently priced out of her home. Paula has been staying with different friends and family while she waits for her coming appointment with a local crisis center. The program will assist her in finding affordable housing. She is very optimistic despite all that is going on that she will be in a more stable place after this appointment but needs support with raising money for her security deposit. This support will go a long way in making this a much smoother transition for her.

Michael needs assistance with car repairs

Partner: Peter Paul Development Center

Advisor: Chimere Miles

Michael works day and night to ensure that his two children feel stable, supported and loved. While having access to a fully functioning vehicle is essential for parents it is critical for Michael who has one child diagnosed with Down syndrome. Every week Michael and his family make the drive between Richmond to DC for medical appointments and to visit mom. The repeated trips up and down the highway has put a bit of stress on Michael and the car. Being able to restore air conditioning and put new breaks on the family vehicle will allow for Michael to focus on singing lead vocals as the family drives instead of if he has to cancel the weekly trips.
