*** UPDATE: The manager has extended the date to pay the rent. The family needs to pay by the 15th or they will be homeless. The family still needs $406.****
Hello All, We have a son and a father who are going to be homeless if they cannot pay their rent. Dad had an accident at work and is unable to continue working. He has been receiving money through Labor and Industry since January. Due to no fault of his own, this month no check, notice or letter showed up. He went to the office and was told that he should have received a letter but it was delayed. The office people told him that he wouldn't be receiving money anymore because of a pre-existing condition. I've talked with the apartment manager and she is giving an extension for the late fee and water/sewage. The total that he needs left for rent is $406. If there is any possible way you can donate please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-604-3610 ext.1376 or Caroline Lopez at email@example.com or 360-699-5106 ext 114 Any little bit can help. The checks should be made out to Nobl Park Apartments. I am at Cascade Middle School today. Thank you for any help.

Family of 5 faces difficult time
Thank you our generous community, especially the United Methodist Foundation and Harmony Elementary, for helping this family stay in their home and have some additional needed resources!
A family with 3 children is struggling to make ends meet and keep everything as normal as possible for the children right now. The dad had a new full time over the summer but was let go after 90 days without warning because the season had slowed down. He just found a new job in Portland for a moving company that starts tomorrow. In addition, the mom is very ill with an umbilical hernia and will have surgery soon but will need to be down for six weeks. This will be very challenging with two of children having autism and a 4 year old toddler in the home. This family is desperately trying to stay in their home but will not have the $1000.00 for rent in October. Their biggest need right now is finding help to pay their rent so they can stay in their home. I am also helping the family with food resources and clothing for the kids. One boy and one girl both wear size medium in shirts, and 7/8 in pants and size 13 or 1 in shoes. The toddler wears a 5T in tops and pants and a size 10 in shoes. If you have any of these clothing items that you would like to donate, please let me know.Status: Completed

Mom going through cancer treatments has power shut off.
A heartfelt thank you goes out to the Vancouver Methodist Foundation for paying the entire balance to get this families power turned back on! We are so thankful to have such a generous and caring community!
A single mom of 4 children had surgery for cancer last year in April of 2016. Just recently she found out that the cancer returned. Although she was able to go back to work following the surgery a year ago, she got behind on her bills. With the recent return of the cancer, she is now needing radiation treatments twice a week. While going through treatment, she is unable to work at this time. Her two twin children, who are in kindergarten, have gone to stay with relatives while she is receiving the radiation treatments but her middle school daughter and high school son are still with her in the home. The family's power was shut off one week ago and will cost $600.00 to get it turned back on. Once this is paid off, the power can be turned back on and she will be able to get back on monthly payment plan of $140.00 a month. If you can help this family get their power turned back on with any amount, it would be greatly appreciated.Status: Completed

Family of 5 unable to come with full rent amount this month
A family of 5 is unable to pay their entire rent this month. This family has always been able to make the rent in the past but recently the mom lost her job and this has set them behind. The mom has found a new job and will be starting work again next Monday. The dad is disabled and is unable to work. The family has contacted the Council for the Homeless and other local resources to try to get assistance but was told that there are no resources available to help them right now. The family has come up with $600.00 but is still short $825.00. I have encouraged the family to talk to their landlord again about working with the family to have them make some additional small payments to get caught back up. However, the mom is not very hopeful that the landlord will work with them and will be in worse situation if they lose their current rental. If you can help even with a small amount, please give me a call at 360 604-4928.Status: Completed

Family apartment broken into and needs a new front door
Thank you to Good Deeds with Beads and an individual donor that provided the funds to get this door repaired. This family's home is in the process of being secured this week.
A single mom with a nine year old son had their apartment broken into last week. Many personal items were stolen and a crow bar was used on the front door to break into the apartment. Now the front door no longer closes or locks and the family needs to place furniture in front of the door at night in an effort to try to secure their home. Until the door can be fixed, the family feels unsafe and is unable to properly secure their home at night and unable to leave their home during the day. According to the apartment management, it is the family's responsibility to pay the $500.00 to fix the door using the apartments vendors. This family does not have the funds to pay to have the door fixed. Any help with this, big or small, for this family would be greatly appreciated.Status: Completed
