My Husband Is Out of Work, & We're Struggling to Keep Our Power on & Need Help Please!
I'm a married mother, and my husband and I have two amazing boys together. Our oldest son is 8 years old and our youngest is 3 years old. They're great brothers to each other, and my husband and I are just so incredibly thankful to have them both in our lives. My husband is an amazing man, and he and I have always worked hard to provide for our children, but right now, he's out of work while struggling with complications due to his diabetes.
With my husband out of work, I'm the only one bringing in an income right now, so we've just barely been squeezing by in terms of all of our bills. I work full-time as a customer service representative for a major cellphone company, and I make enough to cover some of our expenses but nowhere near enough to cover all of them. We've been focused on trying to keep up with our rent and have managed to do so for the most part because at the end of the day, keeping a roof over our heads is the most important thing. However, we haven't been able to manage our electric bill at all, and we're far enough behind right now to be facing a shut-off. It's hard because we're in a situation where we can't afford to pay all of our bills and we're having to pick and choose what we can and can't pay; sooner or later, it will all catch up to us.
Getting this assistance would get us out from under this situation where we have to pick and choose what bills we can and can't pay. I'll be able to focus on taking care of my husband and working on getting a second job so that we can better manage our bills. I'm confident he'll be back on his feet physically soon, and once that happens, we should be able to get back to being self-sufficient again. We would be so relieved and grateful to receive this assistance, and we would never forget the people who help us. My family would like to thank you all in advance for helping us keep our power on while we wait to find more work.
