Meet Heather and her family
$0 Raised, $895 To Go
Heather and her partner Joshua, are raising money for the security deposit for a home through Rent with Integrity. They became homeless after having discrimination issues with a past landlord and it took them quite a while to be accepted for a new place due to their lack of a rental history. Heather and her ten month old daughter are currently staying with her family relatives temporarily until she can be housed along with her partner.

My favorite food is potatoes because you can make different dishes with them such as French fries, mashed potatoes, diced potatoes, all sorts of different types of potatoes!
What would constitute a perfect day for you?
My perfect day would be taking my daughter to the beach for the first time. I would take her to Panama City, because I love the beaches there. I know she would love it because she loves sand and she also loves water. I would enjoy seeing her reaction to the long beaches, sea-shells the birds and the waves.
For what in life do you feel most grateful for?
I am most grateful for my family. I am thankful that my family members are good role-models for my daughter to look up to. We often have family reunions and take trips to different places together. We also always get together for birthdays and holidays!
