A Bed to Lay Her Head
Tamara* and her 8-year-old daughter Kylie* have been homeless on and off for many years. Tamara most recently escaped her partner who was physically, verbally, and sexually abusive to her. Ruby’s Place provided her with shelter, case management, and housing assistance. She has been making steady income and signed a lease on a new one-bedroom apartment for her daughter.

In one day, the GIVE Girl volunteers got together to give Tamara and Kylie the home they deserve.
Tamara and Kylie both had big smiles when they saw their new home. Even Kylie’s friends who were with them loved the new place.
The GIVE Girls truly transformed Tamara’s home into the beautiful and comfortable home. Now, Tamara has a safe place she can raise her daughter and grow in.
One of our favorite photos came from Tamara the day after the gathering. She shared this adorable photo of Kylie reading a book before bedtime in her new space.
Thank you to the Give Girls, all of our generous donors, and Chipman Relocations and Logistics for making this all possible.
