I'm Fighting to Get My Daughter the Education She Needs & to Keep Our Home! Please Help Us.
My entire world revolves around my daughter, and I will do all that I can until I have no breath left to fight for her and to raise her to be a strong woman. I'm a single mother and am raising her completely on my own. My daughter is 5 years old and was recently diagnosed with ASD and ADHD, both of which I have also been diagnosed with, although not until I was an adult. Currently, I'm fighting for my daughter's right to access special educations programs in our county and have had to battle the school district after she was denied access to those programs. School was always a constant battle for me, and now I know that's probably due in part to me having ASD and ADHD, so I don't want my daughter to have to fight the same battles that I did growing up.
Due to her being unable to access special educations programs in our district and because her diagnoses are relatively new and not covered by insurance yet, I've been having to pay out-of-pocket for ABA therapy for my daughter. The therapy is really working for her, and I'm very thankful for that, but it's also really starting to add up in terms of cost. It's taking so much of my monthly income that it's gotten to the point where I'm going to have to choose between paying for therapy for my daughter or paying our rent. Making a decision like that is impossible because either way it will really negatively impact my daughter's well-being. For that reason, I'm humbly requesting assistance with our rent please.
Our car also recently broke down, and it's fanning the flames of our already dire financial situation. I'm worried that I'm on my last legs, and I know that losing our home could be catastrophic. However, I also know that with this help, I'll be able to get back on my feet again, but most importantly, I'll be able to keep fighting for my daughter's right to a fair education. Once she has access to the programs she needs, it will also significantly reduce our financial burden. As a mother, it would mean so much to me to be able to get this help for the sake of my daughter, and I promise that it's something I will always work hard to pay forward. Thank you all in advance for your generosity and kindness.
