Help Family Keep the Lights on After Burying Their Loved One

My Story:

I am a married mother of 4. My children are ages 25, 22, 17 and 3. My youngest is a surprise baby. He is a joy to be around and although it scares us to start over, he is so worth it. My oldest child just graduated and is looking for full time work. My 17 and 22 year olds are in college and my youngest just started pre-k. I am looking for work from home jobs so we do not have to pay for child care and my husband works as an educator for a correctional facility. My husband works very hard to keep things going.

My husband's mother who had Alzheimers recently passed away. We couldn't find any of her insurance policies and had to pay for her funeral on our own as family didn't contribute. This has caused a hardship because we are still paying on the funeral and it has caused our other bills to fall behind. My husband is now working 2 jobs to put food on the table and a roof over our heads. We need Modest Needs help with our energy bill.

The balance continues to increase and we are so worry about receiving shut off notices. Long term, your help would help us feel like we could breath a little bit, taking one worry off of our plate. Your assistance will keep our lights on and allow us to fully catch up with all of our bills. Thank you so much.
