Ruth saved her 2 boys (10 & 14) from their violent father, but she now has nothing! Every penny helps to provide furniture, food, and supplies as they start all over again. More ...

Ruth and her sons need help setting up their new home. Right now, they have nothing!

Just before Christmas, Ruth (not her real name) packed her two boys and the family dog into the car. Telling her violent husband they were going to visit family for Christmas, she drove away, never to return.

The family has been in a shelter for over a month now and will be moving into their new apartment Feb 1. They have nothing but the few clothes they packed for their supposed trip.

THANK YOU for anything you are able to give. Ruth and her boys are really lovely and would never ask for anything themselves. They've been through a lot yet still have smiles for everyone.

Ruth has not asked me to set up this account, nor does she know I'm doing it. If you know me, I am collecting donated items, but am also setting up this account so that people can give money to help buy the things that aren't donated.

(I cannot post a real photo of the family. They deserve their privacy and we do NOT want their abuser to find them.)
