After Separating from My Husband & Losing My Home, We're Struggling & Need Help with a Car Repair!

My Story:

I separated from my husband of 10 years a little over a year ago. I am a disabled veteran and it's hard enough to take care of myself, but we have a child who just turned 8 years old. I'm doing my best for her, and I wake up every single day trying to be the best mother I can be. When my husband left us, our rent went up twice as much because we lost our house we were renting to own. My husband told me he paid the taxes the prior year when he actually had not. That caused us to lose the house because I couldn't come up with the money to pay all the interest that accrued over a year. During that time, we moved into a rental property that another veteran I knew owned. At the time, I thought he was trying to help us out of the kindness of his heart, but long story short, he was trying to take advantage of me.

After all of that, we had to find a place of our own, and I've struggled to keep up with our bills since then. Due to the situation with my husband, my credit was ruined, and I had to find a new home very quickly due to the other situation we were in. Now, our rent is very high, and it's keeping us on an extremely tight budget. I don't have room to pay for unexpected expenses, so when my car broke down due to a fender bender, I was devastated.

It feels like the world is closing in on me and my daughter at the moment. When I solve one problem, another one is waiting for us right around the corner, and we can't seem to find any relief. So, I'm very humbly seeking assistance with the deductible we owe for this car repair so that I can finally get back on top of our bills again. I would be so relieved and so tremendously grateful for this assistance. Thank you all in advance for showing us kindness and compassion when we needed it most.
