Erica: Inspiring Mother of Three Young Kids

Erica first applied for a vehicle in December of 2018. She is divorced from a very difficult marriage – living with her brother with twins who are 4 yrs old (1 boy, 1 girl) and a 4 month old son.

Erica had been on the wait list and called letting us know her 4 month old son was diagnosed with a serious case of bronchitis which required him to go to Children’s Hospital to receive deep suction treatments. The doctor said her son could no longer wait out in the cold winter weather at the bus stop – which is how Erica got everywhere.

We were able to place Erica with a Mazda MPV in March of 2019!

Single women in need come to Hands who are concerned for their families’ well-being because of the lack of a reliable car. Financial gifts are the “fuel” that make stories like Erica’s possible.
