I'm a Dad of 5 & After Losing My Job, My Wife Losing Hers, & Losing Mine Again, We'll Be Shut Off!

My Story:

I am a married father of 3 girls and 2 boys. My wife and I are both nurses, love caring for others, and are always able to take care of our monthly expenses.

In July of 2022, I fell ill with COVID-19 and lost my work contract. Our household was left depending on only one of our incomes, so it became more difficult to pay for everything. I was finally able to obtain full-time employment this past summer, but my wife lost her job as soon as I got mine. Then, I was laid off again. I couldn't believe it! It has been so exhausting. We had no choice but to ask our family if we could borrow from them, so we are trying to pay them back too. I am zeroing in on a new job, but my family's utility bills are past due. All 7 of us will soon be without power and water.

I am requesting assistance paying back these utility bills, so we can be current again. This help would hold us over until I can secure a new position. Your kindness will ensure my kids have running water and home cooked meals; we could charge our devices and have light in the house. Not only that but we will avoid accruing even more late fees that make this harder to pay. Thank you so much for your help.
