Need Help With Electric Bill After a Big Move and Job Loss

My Story:

I�m a married father of 4 children. My two daughters are 9 and 6 and my two sons are 4 and 2. I work as an HOA manager and I am almost finished obtaining my bachelors degree. My wife stays home with our children and because of our hectic schedule she cannot work part time.

We moved from California to South Carolina last year and the job I took to move us out here ended up not working out. I then was offered a different job with a construction company. The owner fired me after a few months without warning even though he knew I had a family. We are now behind on our electric bill and need help since I was out of work for a month. I am now working again but this gap had totally derailed our finances.

Any help you can provide us will bring our bills current and give us a bit of breathing room with our finances. Your assistance will give us an opportunity to start saving a bit of money incase anything like this ever happens again.
