A single mother relocated from a southern state with her five children to escape domestic abuse only to run into Hurricane Sandy. Identities are not disclosed for security reasons. The family was without a home and living in a shelter. And then came Hurricane Sandy a week later and the family was then living in various hotel rooms for ten days and lacked transportation.
A national social services organization contacted Phillips Charitable Organizations about helping the family through this challenging time.
