This is Kearstin and Aianna, baby Zayden not pictured. Kearstin recently left an abusive husband in SC to start a new life in the Raleigh area working for one of my competitors. She was staying with her cousin until her kids were too much for his womanizing lifestyle, so she left for the Interact shelter. She is now employed by me, getting approval through Haven House for rent assistance, and has to go through necessary steps to prove herself to them and await a background check and drug assessment. (She doesn't touch drugs) Within 2 weeks she should be approved. During her stay at Interact she was bullied by other residents due to her race and clean image, her deceased mother's jewelry was stolen from her purse, and her kids were treated horribly and told to shut up if they tried to engage in polite conversation with others. She began avoiding the shelter except to sleep and shower, staying in her car for hours with her kids. She also has a 5 year old German Sheppard that needs a foster until she has a home. Interact wrote her up for stepping outside after 7 with police to file a report on the stolen jewelry, (no leaving after 7 pm) and for making a mess in the kitchen one night (kids had eaten with her at her cousins) and finally for MY attorney friend showing up at Interact to try to help (no visitors allowed) She was told to leave Friday and they provided a motel off of Capital blvd through tonight (Sunday) after tonight she has no where to go until her approval goes through Haven House. I recently moved to a small apartment with my daughter and also can't take in a stranger with my child...even though I know she is desperately trying to rebuild. I simply don't have the spare money to put her up somewhere for a month or a few weeks as my biz just started growing and I incurred a ton of expenses to front that...if everyone pitched in just a few dollars this girl could have a safe place to stay in a nice hotel while awaiting her approval for rent assistance and get utilities turned on, etc. Please do what you can...I never ask for anything but I feel for this family and want to see her safe and not back to the abuse she came from. Thank you!
