"After adopting 5 beautiful children on 10/30/2020 The Carter Family is now looking to buy a new forever home where the kids can grow into our next future leaders. With Mr. Carter having experience of being a foster child himself, he knows some of the struggles the children have already experienced especially being separated from each other for a period of six months." — Kyle Hall
"I’m a 19yrs old single mom, I got kicked out of the house by my parents when I told them I was pregnant, my ex boyfriend also denied being responsible for my pregnancy. When my my son was around 8/9 month I noticed his heart beats very fast and he has delayed development. I took him to the hospital to complain and it was detected after several tests that there's a murmur in his heart." — Fundraiser beneficiary
"As most of you may already know I have seeked help before to escape an abusive household just to end up in an abusive relationship months later. I hate to ask for help especially during these times knowing that everyone is struggling but I have no other options and this is time sensitive. I currently share an apartment with my abuser and the apartment is in his name. I don’t feel safe staying in this apartment, let alone the same city as him." — Dia
"I have been struggling to make ends meet and stay safe during the global crises, while also dealing with the recent death of an elder and recovering from PTSD. I won't be able to return to school this fall as planned due to recently announced changes to the school year, and moving in with family is not an option for me." — Aisha
"My income is not enough for me to afford an apartment on my own (I've searched for roommates in the area, but no luck). Yet even with my small income, my mother finds excuses to take money from me each month. This has really hindered my ability to move out on my own. I've put off asking for help for a long time, but I'm desperate." — Miryam
