Regardless if the picture ( I don’t know what you got and I can’t see or change it) I am looking for a hand up rather than a hand out. I am a disabled mother that grew up very poor and didn’t want my kids to live like that. I started working at 14 doing any jobs I could. As a senior in high school I worked at a plastic factory full time ( I now know illegally) as it only asked if I had a diploma and I said no. I went to college while working and taking care of my family. I graduated with honors and started my masters degree. My husband and two kids moved closer to home I got my wish of being pregnant again but it meant I traveled an hour to teach in a prison, leave and travel another hour for grad school and drive an hour to get home. I worked as a social worker for years, including 10 for NY state. My marriage fell apart and we divorced, I went from making a great living to nothing because I became disabled. I had to file for bankruptcy as I had to wait for two years to get disability and the only thing I was able to keep was my house. I get very little on disability and I don’t want to ask for money that will put a band aid on my situation. I admittedly looking for a large sum, about $200,000 as this will set me for life. There is a huge housing crisis where I live and a bunch of old apartment buildings either empty or dumps that are for sale or auction. If I could get one I could give jobs to people by hiring them to totally transform a building into clean safe affordable apartments to rent. This would help the people who make to much for public housing but to little to buy a home or rent anything decent. With the money I made off rent that would be one huge weight and worry off my already broken shoulders. After putting some away for taxes, insurance and as needed upgrades and improvements, I would have enough to pay my bills, get some much needed medical help ( Medicare is aweful) and make some needed changes to my own home. I’m not asking to be a millionaire, just to live a life with less stress. I thank you all for reading this and doing what you do. I am aware there are many people who need help. As a giver it kills me to ask for anything free and would be willing to try and pay it forward.
