User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizei want to thank the kind people who offered me the help i so desperately needed in order to get back on track with my financial issues I had stayed up a lot a night worrying over how things were going to be worked out and I prayed that a way would be found.I have been a single mother now with four sons for 8 years. I do not receive child support from their father and i struggle every day with how i am going to feed the, etc. This has been a little bit of a stress relief to know i had a chance to receive a little bit of help and i am forever grateful. Thank you so very much.

Single Mom of Three Boys Needs Help to Keep Home after Emergency Car Repairs Nearly Wiped Us Out!

My Story:

I am a mother of all boys who between them love basketball and turtles. I work full time on the clerical end of a medical group and am divorced from their father who does not pay child support because he quit his job 3 years ago. I usually make ends meet, though it is certainly hard.

This past year I have had to replace an engine in my 13 year old minivan and this summer, I had a large expense related to my timing belt and radiator that put me very behind since I also had a couple of other unusual bills happen at same time. I do not like to ask for help but I am desperate to pay my mortgage payment so my kiddos and I continue to have a safe place to live.

I am accruing late charges and do not want my loan to be in danger of going to default. Being the sole provider of my children, i have been under a lot of stress to find ways to get our mortgage paid. My oldest son begins his senior year in a few weeks. I have been unable to schedule his senior pictures, buy my kids any school clothes yet or supplies and have spent several nights waking up in middle of night worried about how i can get our lives back in order. Please help.
