Mother of Two Going Through Divorce Needs Electric Help After Moving Costs

My Story:

I am a mother and am currently going through a divorce/annulment. I work full time at a local college and dedicate the rest of my time to trying to make sure my boys stay active and not focusing on the negative in their lives at this moment. Those two boys are 12 and 13 years old. They love football, dogs, skate boards, and cheeseburgers.

I recently filed for divorce due to abuse and bigamy on his part. The expense of moving with the house deposit, first months rent, the transfer of the utilities, moving truck, and filing fees at the court house for my pending separation caused a financial et back. He also took the car so I had to purchase something to get me around, which my mother helped me with. I need Modest Needs help with my electric bill.

If I cannot get it all paid they will turn of my electricity. I can manage my house hold expenses moving forward but I just haven't been able to recover from the cost of moving. I have struggled through it all and this is my last household issue. This will allow me to be able to provide decent meal and toiletries for my children. Your assistance would mean more to us than you know, thank you.
