A Single Mom Needs Her Vehicle Repaired In Order To Keep Her Job.

My Story:

I am a single mother with a fourteen-year-old son and an elderly dependent parent. I am a recent graduate from Florida International University. I work full time as a Case Manager. I really enjoy my job and have being working with at risk youth and foster care children for the past 10 years.

I live paycheck to paycheck and but this past year has been especially difficult. Last July I had to replace my engine, A/C, and radiator which cost me thousands to repair. Now I need to replace my transmission. I've had my car for the past 6 years and is my only transportation. Since my mechanic told me that my transmission is no longer good, I have not driven it in the past month. I just need to this one-time help to repair my vehicle.

Your help will make me able to provide for my family and have transportation in case I have an emergency with my son or mother. It will give me the flexibility to manage my other bills. My car is my life line to employment and remaining stable. Your generosity will relieve so much stress for my family.
