Hello, my name is Serena. My children are Leyna (9 years old), Carter (8 years old) and Tyler (5 years old). When I was laid off from my job last year, I was unable to pay my rent for several months. Since then, I've managed to pay rent on time, but never had extra money to pay on the balance I owe. We are now being forcibly removed from our home on July 6th unless we can come up with the back rent plus the court costs of the eviction. My children are devastated. They have friends in the neighborhood that they play with daily. They love their school and their teachers. My 5 year old is excited to begin kindergarten in the same school this fall. We live a block from the school. They can't understand why this is happening and they cry to me everyday about "making it stop" so we can stay here. I promised them I would do whatever it takes to raise the money needed to keep our home. Let me introduce myself and my children so you can put faces to the names.
This is my son Carter and myself:
This is my daughter Leyna:
This is my son, Tyler:
The total amount we must pay to remain in the home is $3,880.00. This must be paid by July 6th and includes the back rent owed (I pay $770/month) plus the court costs.
If you have the ability to help, please do! Every little bit will put us one step closer to keeping our home! Thank you so much for your kindness! It will not go unnoticed.
