SOAR sent out an emergency sponsorship plea for Arsen Nerkararyan. His mother had passed away, and his older brother came home from his military service to care for him. BUT, they were going to lose their home, as it had been given to them by the mother’s employer, and he had hired a new employee to take her place. Arsen’s brother was unemployed, looking for work, but, without assistance, they would be homeless, and Arsen would be institutionalized.
While our intent was to raise enough funds to rent an apartment for the brothers, your response was overwhelming! Nearly $4300 was raised, and with SOAR contributing another $2500, we purchased an apartment for Arsen. They moved in September 1st! Below is the TV event and pictures of moving day. With monthly sponsorship funds also generously given, we will be able to assist the boys as they get on their feet.
