After COVID, a Rough Winter, & the Birth of My Son, We Need Help Keeping Our Home!
I am a divorced mom of two, a spirited 5-year-old daughter and a heavy-weight 6-month-old son. My daughter loves school and the aquarium, and my son loves to try to put everything in his mouth. I work hard to provide for my children, and I'm really thankful to have them in my life. When I'm not spending time with them, I'm working as an operations and media person for a security company.
I have gotten back on my feet since I had my son; however, COVID cut my hours, so I could not work as much as I used to. I have exhausted all of our savings trying to keep up with bills. Also, we were greatly affected by the winter storms here in Texas around when my son was born. The pipes in our home burst and we lost everything from clothes and furniture to new baby items. My hours are going back to normal, and I'll be able to cover our bills when that happens, but right now I'm having a hard time making sure everything is taken care of. We just moved into a new home, and it's been hard to cover all of the moving expenses, security deposit, etc. on a reduced salary. I'm worried that I'm not going to be able to cover the full amount of our rent for this month, so I'm humbly asking for help with that as my hours and income start to return.
This one-time assistance will definitely keep us going until my hours are fully restored, and I know that once that happens, I'll be able to take care of any other expenses that come up. We've never been in a position like this, and we're sacred to be honest. Still, I have faith that we will get the help that we need to make it out of this situation and once we do, I'll be in a better position to pay your generosity forwards. I want to donate to another family in the same position that we're in right now because I know how meaningful it is to receive help like this when you're in a bind.
