Hi Everyone! Thank you so much for all of the support you've been giving. Ismael and his family greatly appreciate it. We spent all of yesterday packing, since the family had to move out today. A very kind family opened their home and they will be staying there for about a week until we can find permanent housing for the family.
The money will be used to find housing and also everything needed with a new place such as furniture, dishes, a bed, and clothing. The family has almost nothing. We will begin looking at schools where to enroll the girls as well as try to secure them healthcare. The family fell ill to a stomach virus possibly due to the exposure to the sewage and have not been able to seek a doctor since they have no insurance. The money will also be used to enroll the parents in English classes, get the father a contractors license and tools and supplies so that he can begin working in landscape & construction. We are also hoping to get a car for the family to move around-take the daughters to school, get Ismael to school, and help the parents go to work.
We truly appreciate all of your support and words of encouragement, if you have any leads on permanent housing options please send me a message as well as any other resources you might have.
