After Repairing Our Only Vehicle, I Can't Cover Our Rent & We're Going to Lose Our Home!
I am a single mother that works a full-time job, and I'm also a PHD student. I have two wonderful sons. My 8-year-old son is very energetic and loves sports, and my 6 month old son is very curious and is learning every day. Both boys love to spend time and play fetch with our family dog, Chase. I work full-time as a case manager for a juvenile probation center, and I am a PHD student studying Community Care and Counseling. In my personal life, I have become a very active voice against gun violence. I tragically lost my oldest son to gun violence in 2018, and since then, I have used my voice to speak out and to try to make our community a safer place.
We earn enough to pay for our basic expenses every month, but we tend to live paycheck to paycheck. We had no savings set aside when our family vehicle suddenly broke down without warning six weeks ago. This is our family's only transportation, and without it I would not be able to go to work. We had to pay for a new battery and starter, and the repair costs have put us in an unexpected financial bind. As a result of paying for these repairs, we're a month behind on our rent, and we don't have the means to catch up on our own.
We can't afford to cover this month of rent and last month's rent, so I'm very humbly asking for assistance with catching up so that we don't lose our home. With this assistance we'll be able to catch up on our rent, and I can start to focus on rebuilding our savings. help would make a long-lasting impact on our family, and it would set a wonderful example for my sons. I would like for them to see that people can truly make a difference in the lives of others and use this as our inspiration to help others in turn. Thank you.
