Moving To A More Affordable Apartment Could Cost Me My Car

My Story:

I am single parent to two wonderful children. My son is 15 years old and is too cool to be seen with his mom. My daughter is 10 going on 30. She is a wonderful little girl who unfortunately was dealt a rough hand- she suffers from ADHD, Anxiety, and OCD. Despite all of this she's the most caring little girl I've ever met and always tries to help those in need.

I live pay check to pay check. I make exactly enough to cover my bills and I'm left with about $100.00 each month to enjoy life with my children. In January, I found the opportunity to move my children from a one bedroom apartment to a two-bedroom duplex and I would save about $100.00 per month. Unfortunately, the landlord asked for first, last, and security, and there were deposits for water and electricity as well. This upfront cost caused me to fall behind on my car payment. I'm very anxious that it will be repossesed.

As a single mom to two children I cannot be left without a car. Every day my phone rings with calls threatening to repossess the vehicle and I stay awake at night wondering if my car will be there when I wake up. This funding will finally bring me current. Relieving this debt hanging over my head will allow me to take that breath I so desperately need. I am sure that once I am caught up with this, I will be able to keep this from happening again.
