January 26, 2019 Grateful Gathering Marin

To kick off the New Year, Grateful Gatherings Marin will be furnishing the homes of two local families transitioning out of homelessness. We look to you once again to donate items listed on the sign-up sheet and/or provide cash donations to help purchase new mattresses and other items not donated.

Note: For cash donations, please go to the Grateful Gatherings website (please indicate “For Marin Chapter” in the comments section)  https://gratefulgatherings.org/donate/ Also, if you do make a cash donation, please sign up on this sign up list, indicating you are making a cash donation. Noting the amount donated is optional.

Introductions to the two families – January 26th Grateful Gathering Marin

Family #1 includes Mom Maria and her two teens: Natasha, 16 and 14 year old Alexander. A hard-working single mom, Maria is a valued full-time employee at a local Marin market. Her daughter, Natasha, is a very talented artist and Alexander, an athlete, loves track and other sports. This family’s life changed dramatically last fall, when a fire destroyed their apartment and essentially all they owned, including a collection of Natasha’s artwork. While she was at work one day, Maria received an urgent text and video of their apartment on fire from her daughter. Typically reluctant to ask to leave work, this was the time for an exception. Temporarily homeless, they are now in a new apartment, thanks to help from North Marin Community Services (formerly Novato Human Needs.)  Following the fire, several kind families from Natasha's school pitched in to buy new mattresses, along with a few other necessities. But much is still needed.

Family #2 is Mom Jennifer and her three children—two girls and a boy. J.J., the youngest, is 7 “almost 8!” She likes school, though struggles due to a reading disorder. This spunky little girl adores the Disney princesses...especially Ariel and Moana. Then there’s Hannah, 9. Creativity defines her; she loves to sing, as well as draw and write.  Samuel is 10. He’s into soccer, Ninja Turtles, video games, and, especially, the superhero Black Panther. Full of energy, Samuel is moving all the time. Two of the children have recently be enrolled in special services. Fleeing domestic violence, Jennifer returned to Marin where she reconnected with her church family. After being homeless for a few weeks, Jennifer’s pastor helped the family find their current home. Previously, Jennifer worked as a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) but is currently on disability. She’s also working on her GED. Once she gets back on her feet, she plans to return to work full time.
