Sherrie and TT's Story Family 1011

Not long ago, single mom Sherrie and her 7-year-old daughter Ti’onnia (whom she affectionately calls “TT”) were living with Sherrie’s mother.

But when Sherrie’s mother became disabled and moved to a nursing home, Sherrie and TT were left without a place to live.

Recently, Sherrie and TT were chosen to receive public housing. They are so grateful to have a house again!

But their new home came without furnishings - no chairs to sit on, no tables to do homework at, and no soft, safe beds to lay their heads at night.

An empty home.

Sherrie and her sweet, shy little girl shared a single air mattress on the floor.

Then their social worker at Community Partners/Parent-Child Center referred Sherrie to Sweet Dream Makers.

WE INVITED SHERRIE and TT TO OUR WAREHOUSE.
At The Warehouse

Through our warehouse of 100% donated furniture, we were able to provide Sherrie and TT with

a like-new queen mattress set with a headboard and footboard, . . .
two dressers, housewares, . . .
Comfortable chairs, . . .
Tables, . . .
And more.

Finally, we gave them both the bedding they asked for, including an adorable pink and blue set for TT - her favorite colors!

Watch TT get her bedding:

Sherrie will be back as soon as she can save some money to rent a moving truck to get more essential furniture such as a sofa and dining table.

But for now, she is over the moon to have safe, comfortable beds for her and her daughter to sleep in.
