Chelsea


I don't know what to do and I am desperate.  I am 28 and have four children, a girl 11 and 3 boys, ages 9, 6 and 2.  We have just spent 4 months on the street with no place to live.  We were living with my mother but in a fit of drugged induced psychosis (she is bi-polar and was using meth), she threw us out of her apartment at 4:00 in the morning.  I have used meth before but I had been clean for so long... but I am starting to use again and I was just beaten up by a dealer in front of my children and they were terrified.  I am going into treatment and will be there for 9 months.  I can only take 2 of my children with me and so two of my boys will have to go into foster care.


But then what?  Where will I go to get my family back together?  I will need support to stay in recovery.  All I need is some hope...




You can help provide Chelsea and her children with safe, supportive housing.  


$400 will house them for a year!
