Child’s Illness and Skyrocketing Rent Create Financial Strain

This Army family has been dealt two blows in the last month that have caused them both emotional and financial stress. Their young child was diagnosed with a chronic illness that requires a special diet and the lease renewal came with a heavy increase in rent, which they will not be able to afford due to the significant increase in cost of groceries to keep their child healthy. The family needs assistance with deposit for a new home and would benefit considerably by assistance with the cost of groceries.
