Work Slow: Water Disconnected

My Story:

I am a single mother living alone in Atlanta with no family members to lean on. Since I got laid off, I've been working for myself doing hair out of my home. With this income, child support, and food stamps I do ok. My water bill got behind when I was laid off, and I was focusing more on trying to keep my home by paying my mortgage every month.

I have been receiving certified letters threatening to disconnect my water any day now. I have been able to manage my other bills but this water bill is too much for me to handle and it is the most valuable resource to me and my daughter. If I could just get this water bill paid, I will be able to make a fresh start and get back on my feet. Thank you in advance very much for all of your assistance!
