I was thrilled to hear of the option for SAFE Grants this fall. My family has suffered greatly due to COVID-19 and our lack of work because of it. My husband owns a very small sign business and I’m a hairstylist. I was out of work for about 9 weeks. Due to being out of work and actually suffering with a miscarriage during the first portion of quarantine the money just wasn’t there this year to send mg boys to our school. I have a rising 5th grader and 2nd grader. The boys have been a part of their school since they were both in preschool. The thoughts of taking them from their safe place scares me. Having an option for the grant offered me some peace. All things work together for good to them that love God. Praying this grant is allowed as an option for families like ours.
