Veteran and Single Mom Needs Help After Waiting for GI Bill Payments

The Details:

I am a divorced mother of two handsome sons. My oldest will be four next month and loves everything about superheroes, cars, and running. My one year old is the most analytical, logically child I have ever had seen.

I was honorably discharged from the Navy in February. I immediately enrolled in school but the GI Bill has a thirty day waiting period for payments to start. During that time, I was attending school but not receiving income and the deficit became too difficult to recover from. I've managed to catch up on all my other bills, but I'm still short on catching up on my rent and I am now at the point where I am accumulating the late fees and court fees and am trying to get out of that hole. I'm worried I may be evicted along with my two children.

The rent is the last thing that is behind and I will be able to breathe freely and be stable again. I am currently in Nursing school on my last year, so I am working towards a career that will permanently keep myself and my boys stable. You would be bringing so much light into my life. The transition from active duty to civilian life has not been the easiest, and this would mean the world to me.
