I'm a First Generation College Graduate, & I Need Help Moving so I Can Start My Dream Job!

My Story:

I am the daughter of a single mother, and I recently graduated college. My mom has done her best at supporting me throughout college, and thanks to her support and my dedication, I became a first generation graduate. I enjoy helping others and have been working continuously to find a job that will allow me to do just that. My mother works full-time as a Dietary Aide for the school system, and she works part-time at Chick-fil-a. We both enjoy volunteering and supporting breast cancer awareness in our free time.

I have tried to find full-time jobs in our current city so that I would not have to relocate for work, but I have been unsuccessful in those efforts. Most of the jobs in our current city require specific licensure or certifications that I do not have or have the means to obtain. I applied at a company that allows me to help others and aligns with what I have studied in school; however, it is in a different city, meaning that I would have to relocate, and unfortunately, my mom does not have the funds to help me at the time. We have exhausted all options including loans but that was also unsuccessful. The company that I would be starting at does not have any relocation assistance packages. Starting this job will put me in a much better place financially, and it would be a huge jumping off point for my future. However, I'm facing one last hurdle, and I desperately need help overcoming it if I'm going to begin my job. I need help affording a U-Haul to move myself and my belongings to where my job is located.

This assistance would allow me to start my full-time job and bring some stability to my family. I would greatly appreciate this assistance, and it would be a huge step forward in my career path. I'll be able to start a job that I'm excited about doing, but most importantly, I'll be able to give my family some much needed stability. I'll have the means to help support my mom in the way that she supported me, and for that, I couldn't be more grateful to all of the people who reach out to assist me.
