I wanted to take this opportunity to say Thank You for helping my family. I am humbled that you chose to help us during this time of year especially when extra expenses are incurred due to the holidays. This is what life is about; helping others and showing that you care. Thank you for doing both of these things. Your help will be a step toward helping me stay on my feet. This will be something that I never forget and that when I am able, I will pay forward. Thank you again! KM

Unexpected Moving Expense, Single Mother Needs Help With Utility

My Story:

I am a single mom of 4 kids, who all have some sort of special need. I can only claim 3 kids on my tax return because their dad gets to claim one of them, even though he does not see them a lot. In addition to Autism, my kids each have other disabilities. They are great kids who work hard every day to reach their potential.

Due to personal circumstances beyond my control, I found myself needing to quickly find an apartment for my kids and I to live in. I was strapped for time but found an apartment that would allow the number of kids I have. It is in a area where I feel safe has cameras around so that if my son wanders, I can find him. I had to pay a full month's security deposit in order to move in and that completely drained me. I have not been able to catch up and now that the holidays are coming, I am having a difficult time. Once I pay rent today, I have no money for 2 weeks and then that money will go to pay bills. I just need to get a little help with my utility bill during this time.

This funding will help me become financially stable again. It will give me a chance to put some money aside in case of an emergency. I want to make this apartment a home for my kids and your help would be so appreciated. It will help me personally so that I do not feel like a failure for my kids and it may help me feel a little less stressed about money.
