After Leaving My Last Job Due to a Poor Working Environment, I've Been Struggling to Keep Up!

My Story:

I am a single mother of two beautiful children. My 14-year-old daughter is very shy, smart and artistic. My 11-year-old son is very energetic and loves any sport you can think of. They're my entire world, and I work very hard to make they have everything they need. I work a full-time job as a leasing and marketing professional.

Earlier last year, I relocated my family to take on a job working for an old friend of mine. I had worked for her a few years prior, and I decided that the pay was too good to turn down and that it was what my family needed. However, when I began working, I could sense that my boss was going through some personal issues. She was having problems with her family, and those often seemed to bleed over into work. Eventually, the boundaries at my job completely broke down, and I decided that I couldn't function professionally in that environment, so I decided to step down from my position. Everything started to get worse after that. I was in a car accident shortly after leaving my job, and after my vehicle was totaled, I had to find a new one. Then, I managed to find work again, but I was making a lot less that what I was used to, and I wasn't getting the hours I was accustomed to. Bad winter weather also closed my job on several occasions, and that cost me more hours on my paycheck. I've been trying to keep up with all of our bills, but I haven't been able to do so without much in terms of hours and income. We're behind on our electric bill, and I'm very worried about losing our service soon.

I have to pick and choose what bills I can pay right now, and I'm really nervous about our situation. For the sake of my family, I'm asking for assistance with our electric bill as I continue to scramble to find enough hours at my current job or a new job. It would be such a blessing to receive this help, as we would be able to keep our lights on and find some stability as I continue to try to find work. Thank you all in advance for your kindness and generosity.
