"My daughter is what I am most grateful for in my life. Everything I do, I do for her."
Pamela has a steady income in order to pay rent and daily expenses but does not have enough money at one time to pay for the upfront costs of moving into an apartment (first and last month's rent, security deposit, utility deposit and application fees).
*Her caseworker at the Big Bend Homeless Coalition has verified that her income is above her expenses and that she will be able to continue to pay rent on her own after she receives help with the upfront costs.
"I grew up in Syracuse, New York. The winters were extremely cold and I longed for the sunshine, so I packed up and moved to Florida! I have one brother and three sisters, and a beautiful daughter who is a senior in high school. Next year, she is planning on attending college- and already has a scholarship! I am so proud of her and how hard she has worked to get here."
Her Favorite Things:
"I love all kinds of music, but my absolute favorite kind is from musicals! I absolutely love the movie Grease, especially at the end- the dancing and singing makes me smile. My favorite food is pizza, but i truly love all things Italian. My favorite thing to do is eat Italian food with my daughter after a long day; we are very close."
"A perfect day in my eyes would be my daughter and I relaxing, creating great memories, and knowing that we have a place to call our own."
We all fall down sometimes, It is our duty as human beings to extend our hand and help each other back up.
