I Work as a Peer Support Specialist but My Car's Broken & I Can't Get to My Clients. Please Help!

My Story:

Hello there. I am a single mom living with my youngest son (my two older kids are in college). I work as a peer support specialist. I love my job because I love helping people, but right now, I'm having trouble getting to work because of my car.

Not long ago, my car broke down. When I took it to the shop and got an estimate, I couldn't believe it. The cost to fix the car is almost half of what I take home in a month. I live paycheck to paycheck and don't really have any money to save. There's no way I can afford this bill on my own, so right now, I'm stuck without a car, and without a car, I can't do my job.

I rely on my car to get to my clients, most of whom live in remote areas. If I can't see my clients, I can't pay my bills, and if I can't pay my bills, eventually, I'm going to lose everything, so I really don't know what to do.

If you could please help me fix my car so that I could get back to work helping other people, I can't tell you how much it would mean to me, to my family, and most of all, to the people I love helping through my work. Thank you for any help you can offer. I'm truly grateful for the chance to ask for this help.
