I Need Help Repairing My Car So That I Can Keep My Job & Pursue an Education!

My Story:

I am a single mother, a Certified Nurse's Assistant (CNA), and a college student. I am currently employed as a CNA at an alcohol and drug abuse treatment center while also pursuing my bachelor's degree in social work. I want to continue working in the mental health and substance abuse field, assisting individuals who are a part of the most vulnerable population in this country. I have a 19-year-old daughter who is receiving treatment for anxiety and depression, which enhances my desire to assist others dealing with mental health issues. With the help of counseling, my daughter is considering entering a community college to further her education, and I couldn't be prouder of her.

As a CNA, I work paycheck to paycheck, and I am paid monthly. After paying all our household bills, purchasing groceries, and needed household supplies, my paycheck is usually entirely depleted. This makes dealing with unexpected expenses impossible. Now, my automobile is currently broken down, and I am unable to afford the repair bill. I have been paying different associates for providing me with a ride to work; however, it is becoming more difficult to receive a ride, and without transportation, I fear that I will not be able to get to work which would cost me my job. We desperately need assistance with these repairs, or it could cause me to lose my job.

This assistance would have a long-lasting impact on my family by allowing me to continue to both work and pursue my education. I'm hoping to finish my degree and apply for a position as a social worker so that my pay might become a little more stable. I'll be able to continue to assist and watch over my daughter as well, and I'll continue to fight on behalf of people with mental health and substance abuse issues thanks to your help with this expense. Thank you all in advance for your kindness and generosity in helping us with these car repairs.
