I'm a Single Mom with a Special Needs Child. Without Help, We'll Be Evicted this Week.

My Story:

I am a single mother raising a special needs child without any child support or financial support. I am also a proud veteran who served in the Army. My daughter is the true light of my life. She's exceptionally gifted in the arts, both both as a writer and visual artist. She's writing a trilogy and has already secured copyrights for her characters and character development processes. Like I said, she is truly a gifted child.

Lately, I have found it difficult to support us financially because my hours have been cut from full-time to part-time. Finding ourselves in this unexpected financial, situation has cut me to my core. I have never been in such dire straits of need, and it pains me to also see my daughter struggle through these times. Sadly, I have exhausted my entire life savings, emergency, and retirement accounts, mostly aimed toward my daughter's wellbeing. We do not have insurance, so all of her specialists, testing, assessments, evaluations, schooling, doctors, therapy, and psychiatrists have quite literally drained me, financially, physically, mentally, and emotionally. All we are left with is a financial bind and no one to ask for help. Now, we find ourselves turning to you all to ask for help with paying our rent.

This funding will give us what we need to keep our home and avoid eviction. If I can just get our rent paid, I will be able to become self-sufficient again at that point. The impact of such generosity would be life-changing and life-altering for us. Your gift would truly be a testament to the idea that if you help someone, then you help everyone. If assisted, I will certainly pay it forward and I will let others know there is both help and hope in this world. Thank you all for your generosity and please remember to share your kindness with the world during these trying times.
