Standing on the Corner with a Cup in My Hand

Rent is due by May 3rd. We have enough to pay one apartment but not the other. Right now we are about $1100 short (rent is 1250 for each). If we don’t pay by May 3rd, we will get a three day “Pay or Quit” notice by May 6th. Then we get another three days. So we probably won’t get sued for eviction until about the 12th or 13th.

Here is another family with a mentally ill child standing on same corner. It’s a busy corner.

We forge on to fight the good fight! our donation to you will be coming soon! It is time for families of MI children to unite! giving back ,giving forward,it all comes and goes around. “One tree alone canot stand against the howling winds,many together can”

    Note from Michael: Thank you, Sierra, but please don’t make any donations to us! You need it right now more than us!

    “I would be true for there are those who trust me.
    I would be pure for there are those who care.
    I would be strong for there is much to suffer
    and I would be brave for there is much to dare.”
