Marisol from San Francisco, CA

I am recovering from surgery. One month's rent will keep me housed before I go back to work!

With your help, I will be able to heal in a safe environment and keep the home where I have lived for many years.


Hi, My name is Marisol Garcia. I arrived in this country a few years ago. Now I am a volunteer at City Health Clinic, helping social workers who help the community in San Francisco. I'm hoping to keep volunteering there because I want to learn more, and because I really love my job there.

This fall, I have to have a surgery for my own health. I want to make sure that I recover well, and that I don't lose my housing during my recovery.

I need help paying my rent. While I am healing after surgery, I won't be able to work for a month, and I won't have enough to pay rent. If I lose my apartment, it will be nearly impossible to find another place in San Francisco at this price.

Meeting this need will help me because if I have enough money to pay rent, I will be able to heal in a clean and safe environment, and I will be able to conserve the home where I have lived for many years.

Thank you for helping Marisol fund this need.
