The cost of raising a child born in 2013 to the age of 18 is approximately between $250,000 to $300,00. Now figure the average family has 2.5 children. Therefore most families have between 2 and 3 kids. Simple math says that most families spend $500,000 to $900,000 raising children. Roughly on any given night 216,000 people in families are homeless in the United States of America. That is roughly 41% of the homeless population. Nearly 20% or Americas children are living below the poverty line which is roughly $23,000 a year for a 2 adult 2 child family. A family that makes poverty level money will make approximately $415,000 in 18 years. That is $85,000 shy of raising their two children. While you read this keep in mind just about everyone has been in need of help in some way shape or form. Moving on!m Roughly 45% of marriages end in divorce. When two parents split up it can be devastating on all parts. Children become confused; parents become depressed; and the financial outcome is crushing at best. One parent (usually the father) leaves the home and is still fiscally responsible for the children and the home he was forced to leave behind. As well as needing to fund his own new home. In some cases both parents must leave the home they built together, in which case both parents are in a particular predicament where they need money to continue to support children. Down payments and deposits become pricey, especially in the economy we live in. Lets face the facts it is nearly impossible to come up with $2000 for first month rent, a security deposit, utility deposits, and moving expenses when raising children. All the funding collected here goes to separated or struggling families trying to get back on their feet. We do not fund legal disputes, divorces, court costs, or lawyer fees. We are here to get separated families out of motels, shelters, and off the streets. Our purpose is to make the transition from hardship to happiness a little less difficult, stressful, and frustrating. Please find it in your hearts to help out the less fortunate. We also fund families who might have fallen on hardships by losing a job, having rent increased and can't afford it, medical problems, or simply had landlord sell the house they were renting. In these last instances families need help with mortgages, moving expenses, medical bills, or getting caught up on bills in general. Please donate today to help families who are hurting and truly need a helping hand.
