Ali Brown Millionaire
April 11, 2011 by Post Team
The show pulled a surprise visit for almost a year. When Brown offered to help struggling mothers living in Venice’s main crop, it was not long for the millionaire to realize they could make a difference in their lives.
Brown gave the harvest home and, .
“I mean, was burned completely,” said Harvest Home Director Jennifer Jenson. “It keeps the doors open. It really is important that the gift was for us.”
Inside the big house, homeless pregnant women are welcomed into a warm, supportive and give them the tools they need to change their lives. There is room for eight women and their children.
“We really have a variety of funds,” said Jenson. “Women who have been abused and no one else for them to go, so call us.”
“It’s almost like a family,” said Alisha Chaney Harvest Home residents. “A small family. We all work. We all have our little things we do, and we have dinner every night at six o’clock.”
“This was the first time I had a baby,” said former resident of the main crop Monica Youngblood. “And to be around other women see what’s going to have that kind of sense of community that helped me a lot.”
Youngblood life has shifted. She gave birth to her baby in the main crop, but now lives in a dormitory at the University of Cal State Northridge. She graduates next month with a degree in psychology.
Some of Brown’s donation was used for education. Resident Helen Baker is studying for her GED with a teacher who visits a few times a week. Baker gave birth to her daughter three months ago harmony, the youngest of seven children.
“Probably in July or August and should be finished here,” said Baker. “And another home that will help me and my children can meet and have a job.”
Some of the money will also replace old refrigerators with shelves broken with a new model. Youngblood was forced to make a lot of walking when her car broke down.
“In the nursery at my school,” said Youngblood. “In my school for home care. I was walking about or 4 miles a day and it was very hard.”
Home Harvest used part of the money from Brown to her surprise with a special gift. That surprised her with a car.
“I just started to mourn,” said Youngblood. “Because I felt at that moment God had heard my prayers. Is a new beginning to start her life over and I feel that this program really is to say that my life is changing again. My life starts again.”
