I'm on the Verge of Losing My Home After Sacrificing Our Rent to Repair Our Vehicle! Please Help.
I am a single mother of one beautiful baby girl. She is 5 years old, and she is very energetic, curious, and loves to have a good laugh. My daughter enjoys seeing new things and exploring, but most of all, she keeps me on my toes! I work full time at a hospital, and I work I the cafeteria as a barista. I have been working with them for the past 5 years, and I love my job and the support that my employer gives me.
I earn enough to pay for our basic expenses every month, but I still tend to live paycheck the paycheck. Unfortunately, I have had a couple of setbacks and had to pay out of pocket for a lot of unexpected expenses. First, I had to cover daycare for my daughter for the year, and that's billed annually. While I was expecting and budgeting for that, I was not expecting to have to repair our only vehicle this month. I was having trouble getting my vehicle to start, and after taking it into the shop, it needs extensive repairs. I couldn't afford them, but I had no choice but to cover the repairs, as we rely on our vehicle for everything. Without it, I can't work, and I can't even get my daughter to and from daycare and school. As a result, I had to sacrifice paying our rent and utility bills this month in order to cover the cost of repairing our vehicle, and now, we need urgent help to catch up.
This car expense was unexpected, but I feel if I get this very generous help, I can get everything back on track. As a single parent, it's difficult to get by sometimes, but I'm trying my best for the sake of my daughter. It's hard to ask for help, but I know that it's important to put my pride aside in order to do what's best for my small family. I would be very humbled and relieved to receive this assistance. We will never forget the kindness that we're shown, and I promise that it will always be greatly appreciated by my daughter and me.
