Mother of 3 Needs Utility Help Due to Divorce From Abusive Husband

The Details:

I am a single mom of 3 kids going through a divorce from a mentally and physically abusive husband. I have twins, a boy and a girl, ages 14yrs old. They love sports and both play competitive softball and baseball. Due to my financial situation I don't know if they will get to play this year.

My husband has left our martial home and refuses to pay or help pay any of the bills here. I was unemployed for 6 months and I was having to sell stuff around the house to keep the lights on and the mortgage paid. I recently got a job 2 months ago but I am still struggling on just one income. My utility are about to be shut off if I don't come up with $438 and I just don't have that money after I pay all the other bills. I am asking help for my utility bill I have to pay it by tomorrow or I will be shut off but if I have a program helping me they will extend it out a little bit longer. I just want to get current with them so I am not having to pay all these past due amounts.

If I can get this bill paid it would really help me so much. I would be on track to getting my finances stable and keeping the lives of my children as normal as possible.
