This gofundme campaign is to help a mother and her children have money needed for a place to live along with moving expenses and utility deposits. I hope you can find it in your hearts to help this family in their time of need. Thank you and may God bless you.
I am in a really tight spot and in need of help keeping my family together. We need money to rent an apartment that is near my child's school and help to move us there. I have to move by the end of February 2017.
I apologize that I didn't post a real photo. I'm going through a divorce now.
The panic, the heart racing, upset stomach is real
I have been renting a room in a house of a "friend" at the time and it was not written on a contract, just verbal. I was always just told how much each month I owed and never got to see the energy bills. The rent kept getting increased to the point all my money was taken each month and my adult daughter helped out so I could keep my checking account open. On February 1st, I was told by the person that the house we were all living in had sold and I had to be out at the beginning of March and she refused to take rent from me. She told me the other renters would be out too. It turned out that it was only me that it was said to and not the others. (alot went on that I left out)
I and my 2 kids, have no where to go and no money saved because of the high rent we were paying. Even local family here did not want to help. We just needed a temporary place to stay so I could save money for2 to 3 months and then start apartment hunting. I am crying as I type this because it seems bleak. I would have to donate all our stuff, furniture, everything and let my youngest stay with her dad and I and my oldest live out of my car. I live in the high desert and that prospect makes me sad. I can't qualify for any assistance from welfare because I am still technically married. I do get food stamps. I will be divorced on April 1st so then I can get help but then I wouldn't need to if all this didn't happen.
My oldest daughters dream was to get her GED, then go to school to learn phlebotomy and get a job after. It breaks my heart that now that she may not have a stable place to stay so she can follow her dream.
My youngest daughter is doing good at the current school she is going to. She is not being bullied there.
I know I am responsible for all the bad in my life. I am a child of abuse who seems to attract all the wrong people in my life. Perhaps if I had better self esteem I would have done better. I'm really trying to do better.
Thank you or reading this if you got this far and thank you for helping me, if even to share this. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
