Young Family with Newborn Needs Mortgage Assitance after Expensive Car Repair

My Story:

I am a stay-at-home mother of our precious newborn son, who's now 6 weeks old. His father, my boyfriend, works very hard to support us and his two children, who are 10 and 4 years old.

While we had a couple of months worth of our mortgage payment saved, our truck unexpectedly broke down and required over $2,400 worth of repairs to get it running again. It's our only vehicle, so my boyfriend needed it to get to and from work. We, therefore, had no choice except to use our savings to cover it and now we are struggling to put together our mortgage payment. We are hoping for assistance in covering our mortgage payment as we have a young family and we are very scared of losing the home we all love.

If approved for assistance, it would greatly help us get back on track. We would like to be able to build our savings again, and stop this fear of falling behind and jeopardizing our home for us and our kids. We are a humble family and never ask for help, however we find ourselves at a point that we need assistance in order to ensure the well-being and stability of our family. Thank you so very much.
