Extended Family Helps Single Mom Move Out Of Car And Into Home

Woodland Hills, CA – November 27, 2012 – MaxLaine Alexis (Maxx) is a hardworking single mother living in Los Angeles.  During the day, Maxx works in an office doing administrative and human resource work.  Maxx, along with her twelve-year-old daughter, spent their nights in a car or a motel room. They receive virtually nothing monetarily or otherwise from the girls father, who lives across the country.  When MaxLaine’s car broke down recently it became extremely difficult and time consuming for her to get to work and back every day.  Fortunately for MaxLaine, she found an organization called Extended Family that was able to assist with getting her a place to live and, hopefully soon, a car.

After receiving assistance from Extended Family Charity MaxLaine Alexis wrote:
I want to Thank the Extended Family Charity for helping my daughter and I. Before I found out about this GREAT organization, we were living in and out of a car. When we were not in the car we stayed at various motels. It has been challenging and expensive even though I had a Full-time job. Mark was SO helpful to make sure we were able to have enough money to get into a place...and WE DID! With the extra money, I am looking to buy another car since the one we had broke down on the same day Mark told me that Extended Family would be able to help me. I am SO Grateful and Thankful. All The Best, MaxLaine

According to Mark Carmer, the founder of Extended Family, “we assist those single parents who are employed and working hard for their families, but find it’s still not enough.  Our current government programs are not designed to provide aid to those who are trying to better themselves. Single parents, who are employed in an effort to improve the lives of their children, often fail to qualify for government or charitable assistance because they are earning an income.  Extended Family believes these are the people who should be supported the most.  We believe in helping those who are alone and working hard to help their family.  Being a good single parent is tough enough, but being a good single parent with limited financial resources and little or no support from family or friends is almost impossible. Extended Family tries to make it a little easier.”  Mark Carmer also stated that “100% of donations received by Extended Family go directly towards assisting single parent families. No donation money is used for the cost of offices, phones, supplies, postage, administrative costs or any other expense not directly related to assisting a family in need.”
