Would you want help?...

A few weeks ago, I read about a woman who was brave enough to pack up her 3 children and face the uncertainty of living on the streets of San Francisco in order to escape living with domestic violence.

I couldn't help giving thanks that I didn't hear about K. as a result of tragic news where murder was involved as we see so frequently today. She escaped!

TANGOBABY has asked us to help her find reliable housing for K. and her family since the city has failed to provide necessary aid given her dire circumstances. Emergency Shelters have rejected her because of the size of her family.

Fortunately, K. sleeps in a bed temporarily because of your generosity but she still needs our help. Please take a moment to read the embedded links in this post and help in any way you can. You can find suggestions as to what is currently needed most by K's family on TangoBaby's blog.

It's beautiful that you have joined together with Tangobaby in helping this woman and her children. I'm fascinated with your conviction to do all that you can and then some, and then some!

Blessings to Sisterfriend!

I am in awe of your giving spirit. You don't just sit back and think what a shame the world is the way it is. You reach out continuously and help specific individuals. You put names on important issues and bring them home to people.

God bless ya, girl.

Thank you Se'Lah for raising our consciousness on this and so many issues. I'm following Tangobaby's blog because I was so moved by K's story having read about her here. I do hope she gets suitable housing for her beautiful family.

Thank you for telling us about this family and what they are going through. Sometimes I think I look at the world through rose colored glasses. It is shocking to me that shelter has not been given to them by government.
