Emergency Home Goods for Clarissa who Lost Her Job

Posted Aug 18, 2021
Clarissa is a single mother who works tirelessly to support herself and her 6 year old daughter. Two weeks ago she lost her job and has been having a really difficult time making ends meet to provide her and her family with essentials like food and toilet paper. She is in a state of emergency and could really use a chance to shop for home goods. She sincerely appreciates any help that can be sent her way.

Clarissa is 29 years old and lives in NY

Clarissa is a dedicated mother from Brooklyn, NY. She has aged out of foster care and has been working on gaining consistent employment, and trying to gain and learn new skills toward building an independent life. Clarissa lives alone with her 6 year old daughter and is a dedicated parent. She is a fearless advocate for her daughter and for the needs of people in public housing and continues to show resilience in everything she does.
