Beds for my children will help me rebuild after leaving an abusive relationship

I became homeless after leaving an abusive relationship. I recently moved into a new home and need beds for my kids.


Arizona & her children received their beds! Sep 4, 2014

She says, "I would like to thank Black Family Development, Benevolent & the sponsors for providing my family with beds & getting myself & children off of the floor. We really appreciate the help that was provided to us through you all. Thank you & God Bless you!"


I am a single mother of 7. I am a full time student at the University of Phoenix. I am a survivor of domestic violence and child abuse. I have been homeless since August 2013 due to domestic violence. I am searching for full time employment. I just received keys to my new home on May 9th, 2014 with the help of Southwest Solutions.

My goals are to finish school at the University of Phoenix and become a social worker. With my degreee I plan to give back to my community and help others just like me.

I need beds for my children and household items. This will make my new house a home.

Meeting this need will help me because it will make sure my children receive a good night's rest for school every day and will allow me to focus on my goals of completing school.

Thank you for helping Arizona fund this need.
