Imagine what it feels like to tuck your child into bed at night, in the back seat of your car that is soon to be repossessed.

We all have heard the stories, some of us have witnessed homelessness first hand. What thoughts come to mind when you think "homeless"? A dirty man or woman with addictions, and the inability to be a productive member of society? Do you ever see the single mom, works full-time earning only minimum wage, who makes $11 to much to qualify for any type of rental assistance or help to feed her child. Who had a corporate job that closed down when the economy turned sour, who lost not only her career, but also used up her retirement and savings trying to keep a roof over her families head and to feed her children. Whose home now is her car, which is soon to be repossessed as soon as they can locate it. This is only one face of homelessness in 2012, and many more exist. Our community has 1 emergency shelter that allows a single female or a family with children to stay up to 30 days, now homeless again and then what? The purpose of my fundraiser is to raise enough money to provide a larger transitional type homeless shelter for anyone needing to transition from homelessness, to living back on thier own. . To fill what I consider a very large need in our community.
