I feel so relieved and thankful we can enjoy summer some without the fear of our utilities being cut off. I will look at the world a little differently now knowing that good guys exist. Thank you you are such a blessing to so many including me! Blessings to you all.

I'm Working Two Jobs, but We Lost Our Home & Need Help Catching Up on Utilities Please!

My Story:

I'm a married mother with a toddler at home. He's our only child, and we love him so much. Currently, he's in his dinosaur phase, and he loves learning about them and playing outside with his toys. I'm working two jobs to support our household right now because my husband has been out of work for a little bit due to some personal challenges.

I won't lie; my family has been struggling to make ends meet lately. We lost our home not too long ago and had to relocate after our landlord unexpectedly gave us a thirty day notice that he wouldn't be renewing our lease. That's been challenging for us, and it's been especially hard on our son, as he doesn't understand why we had to leave the home he's grown up in. Because of that, and because my husband isn't working right now, we're falling behind on some of our major bills and need assistance. We're behind on our water and electric bills, and we're going to lose both services in just a matter of weeks if we can't catch up on both.

More than anything, this assistance would restore my family's hope. We've been really feeling crushed lately, but with this help, we'll be able to finally get back on track. We'll be able to look up again, and for that we would be very grateful. Hopefully, my husband will be able to find a new job soon, and when he does, we'll be much more stable. When we're stable again, we will pay this generosity forward.
