Single mom veteran struggling to catch up on daycare costs after losing job

The Details:

I am proud to have served eight and a half years on active duty and another three and a half years in the Illinois National Guard. I am even prouder of my handsome son Aiden James. He is my world. However, being a single mom isn't always easy.

My former employer did not give any paid sick time. When my son became ill, I was fired for taking time off to care for him. While I was unemployed, I fell behind on his daycare payments. Now that I have started working again, I am doing my best to get caught up on all my bills. The preschool has worked with me, but if I do not get current on this bill, they will not allow my son to return.

Knowing that my son is in a safe, educational and nurturing environment during the day is such a stress relief. This funding will help me care for my son, and allow me go to work worry free.
