Keep The Roof Over A Widow's Head

$3,997 of $10,000 raised

raised by 57 people in 4 months

I am a caseworker at a  frum Jewish organization in New York. One of my clients is an elderly  widow who is emotionally and cognitively disabled.  She lives in a dark and abject basement. She is unable to work due to her disabilities, and her government assistance  covers only half the rent. She has no family able to help financially. As a result of this situation, this woman is in a perpetual state of high anxiety that she will become homeless. She is on a list for for low cost government housing but it may take years till her number comes up. As a result of this situation, this almonoh is in constant terror that she will lose the roof over her head. 

I am therefore spearheading a campaign to raise a few months' rent to give her a sense that she has a security cushion to ease her fears.  Any amount that you can give will add up to give this almonoh a basic sense of security we all need - the need for a home.

Thank you so much and tizku lemitzvos.
