We're Recovering From Homelessness & Need Help with Our Car Insurance Please!
I'm a single mom, and I have an 18-year-oldson at home who is loving, kind, and very supportive. I work part-time as a CNA, and I love my job because I feel like it gives me the opportunity to give back to others in my community. I've been able to continue to work through COVID, but my hours have been reduced to part-time, and that's really caused me to struggle significantly.
I earn enough for our basic expenses, but with the reduction in hour, it became impossible for us to get by. In fact, we became homeless in November of last year, and we've only recently managed to find a new home again. I had to take out a loan to purchase a condo for my son and I to live in so that we could at least have a roof over our heads. On top of recovering from homelessness, our car's A/C also went out recently, and we had to pay to have it fixed. As a result, it's been difficult to manage our bills, and I've fallen behind on our car insurance payment and need help.
If I lose coverage on my vehicle, I won't be able to safely drive to and from work or even just down the road to the grocery store. Driving without insurance is just asking for a lot of trouble, and so that's why I'm asking for this assistance with this bill. On top of allowing me to drive safely, I'll also be able to free up some more income to go towards repaying our housing loan and HOA fees as well. Ultimately, this assistance would keep us stable for the foreseeable future, and that would be such a relief for my son and I after the chaotic experience of being homeless. Thank you all for taking the time to consider our story, and thank you for your generosity and kindness in advance.
