One of our own has suffered a devastating tragedy. Alex has been working with us for about eight years, and she is very close to our hearts. Alex is a single mother of two young sons. She struggles to make ends meet and to provide the basic neccesities for her family. And on top of it, she suffers from rheumatoid arthritis which makes doing normal daily tasks a struggle.

On September 26, her home burned down from a faulty air conditioning unit. All of their possessions, including all of her savings, were lost in the fire. This family is literally left with no personal possessions or money to replace their basic needs. Alex works as a cleaning lady and makes just enough to provide the basic necessities for her and her sons. She does not make enough to prepare for a tragedy like this. Alex and her sons are staying at a motel that the Red Cross is helping to pay for, but she needs to be out soon.

She was able to borrow enough money to buy a trailer that she knew needed a lot of work. It has no flooring, few functioning lights or fixtures, mold under the kitchen subfloor, water damage as well as most of the copper plumbing has been removed and most of the electrical wires were pulled out or are faulty. It needs an overhaul, and as you can imagine, she doesn't have any resources to make that happen.

Please consider helping Alex and her sons regain some sense of safety, stability, and security. Your contribution will help Alex make the necessary repairs to their future new home, give them a safe place to live, help pay for expenses and for necessities like food, clothing and school supplies.
