Military Vet Needs Vital Car Repair

My Story:

I am a disabled veteran and recent widow living with 2 children and my 78 year old disabled mother-in-law. My son is attending college and working part time. My daughter suffers from severe anxiety and depression but has been working hard to overcome her issues. I am not able to work due to my disabilities but i try to volunteer whenever i am able. We are a very close family. We love spending time together just enjoying each other's company.

We are blessed to be able to earn enough income to pay our bills and take care of any personal needs. However, this car repair we desperately need is out of our budget. We live paycheck to paycheck and paying for this would leave us short on other important bills. The car has not been running for 2 weeks now. It has been difficult and expensive to get rides from friends, the bus, and Lyft and Uber.

I am having a difficult time getting everyone to the places they need to be. I am not able to replace the car as that would require a significant down payment. Getting the car repaired will allow us to return to our normal lives. My son will be able to do maintenance such as oil changes. My mother-in-law will be able to get to her much needed appointments. I will be able to take care of any needs my family has outside of our home.
