When we met this mother and five-year-old son, they had just transitioned from three years of homelessness. They had lost their home when fleeing from domestic violence and were immensely grateful to finally have a place to call their own. They were nominated for a FwL gift by a social worker at the child’s school who shared with us that, despite all the hardships they faced and continue to face, this mom gets her son to school on time every day with a smile on her face. Mom’s greatest hope in getting our gift was that her son would get his own bed.
