Bed for Tal
Tal, 37, is divorced and raising her three-year-old son on her own.
Two years ago, Tal turned to social services for help in dealing with her abusive husband. She attended sessions with her social worker regularly and slowly came to the conclusion that she needed to end her marriage. In the midst of handling this upheaval, Tal also had to deal with the death of her mother.
Tal is now divorced, and her only contact with her ex-husband surrounds visitation rights. He pays child support only erratically, and Tal is in dire financial straits.
There is no question that Tal is doing her best to stand on her own two feet. She works as a kindergarten assistant and tries to make ends meet. Her most pressing need right now is a new bed, as the one she has is old and broken. A good night’s sleep would go a long way towards improving Tal’s quality of life.
