Need Help with Furnace

My Story:

I am a single mother. I have a 9-year-old daughter who makes good grades and is in the 4th grade. I also have a 4-year-old daughter who was diagnosed with autism, and some other things I cannot pronounce. I am on a fixed income, but got my credit on track to buy us a home close to the school, where my 4 year old will be starting next week.

They have an excellent special needs program. The house is in good condition, and we love it here. However, the furnace was in disrepair. I paid what I could, and they gave me until September 10 to pay off the balance. I was confident I could save up enough money to pay this debt, but I also didn't realize how much my bills would change after buying a bigger place. We are comfortable. We have food, our bills get paid, and we have been school shopping a little at a time all summer, but I really do need help with this outstanding bill.

I would hate for them to come take our furnace, because then we would no longer be able to live in our own house, near a great school, in a great neighborhood. Thanks!
