Client Story: LaMontavia

LaMontavia and her children, ages 13, 9 and 5, lived in a high-crime Miami neighborhood rife with multiple shootings per month and drug deals, she said. So the mother of three moved to Orlando in 2014 “to have a better life.” 

“I didn’t want my kids to grow up where I was staying,” LaMontavia said. “I was living in the projects, and they were shooting everybody. There were drug deals going on, and little girls growing up too fast.” 

Life has been better in Orlando, she said, but LaMontavia struggles with living off of a low-income wage. She had to throw out everything in her current home because of a bug infestation.  

So The Mustard Seed assisted the family with new furnishings. 

“As a single mother for my three children, it has really been a blessing to know that my kids and I have help to get things we need for our home and bring light to our lives,” LaMontavia said. “We are truly thankful for the blessing, and the things that will help make life much better.”
