Single Mother Needs Rental Help after Temporary Loss of Income

The Details:

I am a single mother of three beautiful children. My daughter just turned 11 and is such a great help to me. She loves to make bracelets. My son is 6 and full of energy. He loves to keep busy doing puzzles. My youngest son is 1 and is a little cutie. He is always laughing and playing.

In the past year, I experienced some financial setbacks. I had a miscarriage in early spring, and right around the same time, my children's father missed some of his child support payments. I have been trying to catch up ever since, but I always have to skip one bill in order to catch up with another. Living from paycheck to paycheck, I simply have not been able to get everything back on track after so many things caused financial hardship in a short amount of time, and would be very thankful for some one-time help to get things back on track again.

I am requesting help with one month of rent. I am nervous that my landlord will take legal action if I do not get my payments back on schedule.

This funding will ensure we have a roof over our heads, and that I am able to get all of the bills current again. I would feel a huge relief to know we will not face anymore accumulation of late fees or live in fear of eviction. My children and I would be grateful for any help you may be able to provide. It would show my kids that people really do make a difference in the world. It will teach them to help others in need when they are able to do so in the future.
