Last few months were very tough for me and I really thought I was going to hit rock bottom before anyone would lend a hand to help. I can't thank all of you enough for making today possible. I am grateful for your generosity and I want you to know how much you've made a difference not just for myself, but my while family. Thank you!
I Have 3 Kids at Home. I Live in Wisconsin and Losing Power in Winter is Dangerous. Please Help!
I'm a single mother with three children, and I'm currently out of work due to the Covid-19 pandemic. My unemployment is still under review, and I haven't been able to qualify for any rental insurance at all because I'm already on a section 8 voucher for housing. However, even with that voucher, my housing company has failed to update my rent to the proper amount, and I'm stuck paying far more than I can afford right now.
I really need help if I'm going to make it through this situation without losing my family's home. Currently, we're behind on our rent and several other bills as well. I'm still waiting on unemployment determination and have had almost nothing coming in since being laid-off. I don't have any way to afford all of my bills until the unemployment clears and my section 8 voucher is recognized. I'm worried that if I can't at least get some of my bills caught up and taken care of, I'll fall behind and be completely unable to dig myself out of this hole. That's why I'm humbly asking for help with our water and electric bills.
I'm worried about losing our home if I can't pay rent, and getting these bills taken care of would free up enough money to pay towards my rent so we aren't evicted. However, I'm also worried about our utilities being shut off with winter approaching. Where we live, the winters can be brutal, and I'm terrified of what will happen if we lose our heat. This help would be lifesaving for my family, and it would keep us out of a dangerous cycle of poverty that we are on the brink of now. I have faith that there are generous people out there who are willing to help us, and I want to do my best to pay it forward. Thank you all for taking the time to consider my family for your support.
