Bella from Rockford, IL

One deposit will get my family housed for the holidays.

Recent health problems put me out of a job and left my family withou a home. I’m determined get my family of 4 housed.


I am a 29-year-old, single mother of three young and beautiful children. I am working on getting my own home, as well as finding a new job. I had both before my mother found that she had medical issues that she needed help with. I dropped everything to take care of her. Recent changes in her health have left me homeless and now jobless.

My goals are to find employment, as well as a safe, stable home for me and my children. I have never requested assistance before and have always been a motivated worker. I have never been in this place of finding myself with a job before or not being able to meet all of my children's needs. I love machine operating and packing!

I need help with money for my deposit and first months rent on a new apartment. I am confident that I can find work immediately, as that has never been an issue for me. However, I need help getting established in a new place.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to get my feet on the ground without being behind. It's getting cold and my children and I would be so grateful for this assistance in getting a roof put over our heads!

Validated by Jordyn from La Voz Latina (What does this mean?)

Bella was referred for our Family Advocacy Center when an unfortunate situation came up for her family. Bella is a very bright, enthusiastic, and energetic mother, just wanting the best for her family. She is a hard worker and has never utilized assistance in her past. She thrives on earning her keep and providing for her kids. Bella lost her job and housing at the same time due to family medical issues and could really use a break to get back on her feet!
