Katherine Stiles is a mom of two girls, Ciara (13yo) and Chanya 12(yo) with Tourette syndrome. She has a disability and lives on a fixed income of $750/month that goes to rent and some utilities. She relies on charitable organizations for the rest. Katherine is struggling to buy simple household items and feminine products for her family this month. In addition, she is struggling to provide Christmas gifts for her children for the second year in the row.
Our program coordinator Maria has verified the validity of this request with their social worker and other organizations helping Katherine. Maria has also identified the essential items we can assist with and has provided alternate resources for Katherine to obtain help with other items. The list of items is outlined below besides the Christmas presents.
