College Student Seeks Family on Craigslist

We’ve seen online marketplace Craigslist used for many ads throughout the years–from Missed Connections and job postings to bedroom furniture and unmentionables.

But this has to be one of the most heart-tugging postings we’ve seen on the site.

College student, Jackie Turner, 26, recently put up an ad for a family to share the holidays. According to Black Youth Project, The William Jessup University student has suffered “emotional, sexual and physical abuse.” In the Craigslist ad, Turner expresses her desire to rent a family for the holidays:

“I am looking to rent a mom and dad who can give me attention and make me feel like the light of their life just for a couple of days because I really need it.”

She is willing to pay $8 an hour. To read more and find out how you can help, please visit ABC News 10.
