Tanya from Detroit, Mi

The house we rent is being sold. I care for disabled kids and my mom and need help with a security deposit.

I need a security deposit for housing. We have to move in 60 days and need help facing this crisis.


I am a mother of 2 disabled children who need my assistance all day. I also take care of my mother who is disabled and unable to care for herself. I had to drop out of school to help my family.

My goals are to go back to school to complete high school and to show my children that they are able to do it themselves. After I obtain my high school diploma, I want to become a care giver.

I need a security deposit for housing. We have to move in 60 days as our house that we were renting is being sold.

Meeting this need will help me because my family will be able to call somewhere home again.
