The Women’s Giving Circle of Howard County has received the following request to help with an immediate need in the community through our Emergency Response Network (ERN) – can you lend a hand?
Our partners at HopeWorks are requesting $1,000 in assistance for a woman who recently left a violent relationship — if she breathed wrong, he would punish her. On one occasion, he broke the television and injured her young son. She has five kids altogether; although two have passed away. Her mother and grandmother also passed away just two weeks after her son died leaving her with little to no support. She now resides in HopeWorks’ emergency shelter and hopes to find secure, safe housing to move forward with her remaining children.
She and her children are in need of immediate financial support to help pay for a security deposit and part of the first month’s rent for a new and permanent safe home.
On behalf of our partners at HopeWorks we are asking for $1,000 from the Emergency Response Network to help support this woman in need.
Can you help? If so, please DONATE HERE.
WGC will pool your contributions and send the funds directly to the nonprofit. We will only accept enough funds to cover this request.
The WGC Emergency Response Network was created to provide an opportunity for WGC donors to directly help women in need. When our nonprofit partners are working with a woman or girl with an immediate need, they submit a request to the WGC.
