Single Mother of 2 Needs Rental Help After Necessary Camp Fees

My Story:

I am a single mother of an 11 year old daughter and a 5 year old son. My kids are like day and night. I have a Masters in Counseling and work full time as a Social worker.

I live from pay check to paycheck. My major obstacle is locating a summer camp that can accommodate both of my kids age group and allow early drop off and late pick up due to my work schedule. Last year I was able to locate a camp that met the needs for both of my kids. They both love the camp and they had integrated activities which enriched their sibling relationship. Unfortunately the cost increased due to my son being one year older this year. He went from being in the peewee group to Juniors which is 1,000 more. Now I have to choose between paying for the summer camp or for my rent. More then anything, I am extremely scared of falling behind with my rent and I am the only person that provides for my two kids. I have paid a huge payment towards this camp, and now need assistance with rent.

This funding will allow me to continue to provide a stable shelter for my kids. Next year I will not have some of the bills I am currently paying because I am on the road of regaining financial stability, but through baby steps. I want to be a great example for my kids by showing them that hard work equals happiness.
