Help With Electric Bill During Job Transition

My Story:

I live with my retired mother and my two little dogs Doodle and Chloe. I recently switched from a retail job to being a PCA (personal care attendant) for elderly and disabled clients. I am planning to go back to school this summer to study Library Science.

I switched jobs because I was not earning enough pay and we fell behind on everything during the transition. We have had a bad winter and our electric bill has been high because of the low temperatures. We need help paying the electric bill and if we do not get help we will face disconnection and possible eviction since we are responsible for keeping the utilities on in our agreement.

We will be able to fully catch up with your help, and moving forward I will have more income with my new job. I hope one day we will be able to pay it forward as well. Your assistance would stop a financial downward spiral.
