£100 still needed for rent

A vulnerable man we know through our CAP job club, was made homeless due to a domestic dispute. He is still allowed access to his 3-year old daughter but he needs a home to bring her to – he had most of the care responsibilities for the little girl and is a devoted dad. The full rent is higher but an application is under consideration by the Vicar’s Relief Fund at St Martin’s in the Field up to their funding ceiling and this would be the difference which is needed by August 2nd.Thank you
