In getting to know our partner, we have learned that most of the Shelter Residents are single mothers with multiple children, and many rely on shared rides to search for permanent housing and employment. In some cases transportation expenses are the only thing keeping them from moving in with family members willing to help. Your donation of one tank of gas will help them move forward to achieve the stability they need.
