After Our Home Was Vandalized, We Need Help Keeping Our Lights on!
I am divorced mother who supports my amazing daughter, wonderful grandson and my son. My 16-year-old daughter is in honor classes in high school and works very hard to maintain her grades. My grandson is 8 years old, and he brings joy to the family each and every day. My wonderful son is a victim gun violence who suffers from PTSD and has struggled with trying to live a regular life. We like to spend time at as a family playing games and cooking dinner together. To support my family, I work full-time as a case manager.
I earn enough to take care of my family's basic expenses every month, but I do live paycheck to paycheck. Also, with COVID and the family being home more, utilities have increased, food expenses have increased, and overall, my monthly expenses have been higher than normal, making it that much more difficult to maintain our situation each month. After already being in a precarious situation, when our home was vandalized, it really pushed us over the edge financially. Our door was damaged and broken, and we needed to have it replaced, but it wasn't enough to file an insurance claim. So, after paying for it out of pocket, it set us back on our utilities and is putting us in danger of having our service cancelled.
This help would bring us completely current and would be a huge relief to us. Our finances are stretched thin as is and that unexpected expense really has us in a bad spot. We would really appreciate anyone who can lend us a hand to keep us from losing our power. Thank you for your kindness and compassion in advance.
