Toni from Detroit, MI

Relocating after bedbug infestation. Need help getting new beds so my kids can rest.

I'm unable to purchase new furniture due to my limited income, but new beds will allow my 3 children to rest to ensure they are wide awake for school.

My need and situation

I am a 45 year old single mother of 3 kids. I have health issues which has preventing me from holding on to a job. In addition, my house recently became infested with fleas and bedbugs, forcing me to move. I am in the process of moving to a new home this week but have no furniture to bring with me since it had to get left behind.

My goals are to keep my kids on the right track by ensuring they stay in school. I'd also like to become more independent and provide my kids with a stable home.

I need three beds for my kids. One full and two twin/bunk beds.

Meeting this need will help me because this will provide my kids with something to come home to after our transition. I am unable to purchase new furniture due to my limited income, but new beds will allow them to rest to ensure they are wide awake for school. It will also provide them a bit of comfort during this difficult time.

Toni has had a rough couple of month dealing with negligent landlord and infestation of bedbugs. Her limited income and the need to relocate has left her in an unstable situation that I am helping her with. In the meantime, beds for her children will help with the transition to their new home.
