Single Mom Laid Off And Needs Help While Starting New Job

My Story:

I am single mom of a 17-year-old boy. My son is a senior this year and he will have a year of college credits when he graduates high school. I am very proud of him. He would like to major in chemistry at a local college.

I was recently laid off. I have just started a new job. I am very thankful for the new job but when I lost my job I did not receive pay for weeks and it has put me behind. I have picked up hours at another store so hopefully this will help. I am asking for help with my rent this month to help me get back on my feet.

The funding will help bring me current and that will allow me to buy food and other needed household items. It will also allow my to not worry about gas money for my son and me. We're feeling so stressed about how thin the margins are right now and your help would give us valuable breathing room.
