Patricia Shivers is a single mother of two in the Bronx for the last 14 years. She has never received child support income although she has applied for it. With two teenagers and no one employed in the household after recent layoffs, time are beyond challenging. Ms. Shivers is also an Air Force veteran.
After contacting Phillips Charitable Organizations, Ms. Shivers was awarded a grant to address rent and graduation dues while she seeks permanent employment.
