Give Where U Live – Week 5

Nora never expected to raise her 4 year-old son, Dillan, alone. Born and raised on Cape Cod, Nora married a local man and, after their son was born, became a stay-at-home mom.

Last summer, Nora made the heart-wrenching discovery that her husband was using drugs. He became secretive, and then abusive. The situation in their home grew volatile. Nora knew she should leave, but she and her son were financially dependent. As she considered next steps, her husband left – making the decision for her. Nora acted fast and got a job, putting Dillan in daycare. But even with a voucher to help defray the cost, the expense of daycare, coupled with rent and utilities, makes it hard for Nora to make ends meet. Last week, Nora’s utilities were shut-off.

Nora wants to work and provide stability for her son. She’s reached out for counseling and guidance and is trying to do all of the right things. Can we help lift up this single mom and her son for the holidays? $2,500 will keep Dillan in daycare for the next twelve months so that Nora can work – and ensure that the lights again shine brightly on this family. Please, Give Where You Live this holiday season with a donation of any size.

Sixty percent of our local families are one setback away from a financial crisis. All contributions in excess of this week’s goal will be invested to help other local families in need.
