Single Mother Cannot Catch Up After Maternity Leave

My Story:

I am a single mom of 4 children. My 20 year old son is pursuing a career in Fire Fighting and my youngest son is a pleasant boy with dyslexia. My oldest daughter does very well in school, is interested in a modeling career and planning to attend college at Florida State while my youngest girl was just born 3 months ago. I currently work full-time as a contractor in project management. Our family loves to travel and we make it a point to at least once a year even if it's nearby home to create lasting memories.

I earn enough to take care of our monthly expenses, but with the loss of income over the 8 weeks I was out of work for maternity leave paired with the loss of income during the multiple doctor visits and unexpected medical costs for her birth caused me to fall behind. The late fees added have been a constant set back in attempting to return to a current state and prevent eviction. I need Modes Needs to help with my electric bill.

The funding you provide will allow us to get back on track with our finances and keep a roof over our heads, so we can focus on the more important things. I want to focus on building my career to ensure that we are never in a financial deficit again. Once we are in a better financial place with the help we receive, in the future, I can be able to give back by helping another family who has fallen on hard times as well.
