Sheboygan-a homeless mother GoFundMe To find a warm and permanent place for her and her young daughter to stay.
Ashley Lagoo-Mckinnie is from Milwaukee, but she had to move to Sheboygan due to lack of space in a homeless shelter.
McKinney created GoFundMe with a goal of $ 1,400 in the hope of finding a home for her and her 3-year-old daughter. McKinney is disabled and needs to use a wheelchair to move.
They are now Sheboygan Salvation ArmyDue to staff shortages, departures must be from 8am to 4:30 pm Monday to Saturday and noon on Sunday.
McKinney said it was difficult to leave the shelter on time every morning because her daughter was ill. She said her young daughter was angry to leave the shelter every morning because she couldn’t take a proper nap and the outside temperature was below freezing.
“From 8:00 to 8:30, we have to sit and wait outside the library,” McKinney said. “It’s terrible because it doesn’t matter if you’re sick.”
GoFundMe has raised $ 146 since it was first created on December 15.
McKinney was told she was third on the housing list and should soon receive housing assistance.
“I just called, and they said they would prepare some things next week, so I hope it works,” McKinney said.
