I'm Working Reduced Hours & Need Help Keeping Our Lights On Please!

My Story:

I'm a single mother with three little girls at home. My oldest is 15 years old and loves to bake, and my second oldest is just 5 years old and love to dance and sing. She's a bundle of energy, and my youngest is too! She's only a year old but loves to talk and dance just like her older sister. I work hard to provide for my kids, but I'm only getting part-time hours right now. I'm looking for work elsewhere, but in the meantime, we're struggling hard just to get by.

Virtually all of our income is going to rent, and that's made it incredibly difficult to pay other necessary bills. I'm having trouble affording even basic things like groceries and clothes. Like I said, most of our income is going to rent, so we've also fallen behind on our electric bill and are facing a shutoff soon. On top of all of that, we recently experienced a death in the family, and the expense from that has also caused us to fall behind on rent for this month. I've run out of any emergency savings we have, and I'm really worried that if we can't come up with our rent soon then we'll lose our home. I'm also worried about our electric bill and the prospect of having our power shutoff. I'm asking for help with our electric bill specifically because I know that if we can address that bill, then it'll make paying our rent easier and we could hold onto our service and our home.

I'm already looking for a way to catch up by getting a second job, but I'm worried that we'll lose our home or our power before then. We need this help if we're going to be able to make it through this, and we would feel so blessed to receive this truly lifesaving assistance. Beyond keeping our home and power on, this help would show my kids that there is a brighter future ahead of us and that God is good. Thank you all and may God bless everyone who lends us a hand in our time of need.
