Hello to anybody reading this. I am writing this in hopes that we get the financial help that we need. I’ve tried all other options and recourses with no luck. I am mentally exhausted and now I’m here. I really hope somebody can help us. For the past four years my little family of 4 has struggled to make ends meet. Right now we are behind on our rent, our only working vehicle completely broke down 2 days ago and we are past due on our utility bill. A disconnection is scheduled for the 12th of January 2020. I was born with a visual impairment which interferes with obtaining a driver’s license for myself. Soon after my son was born we experienced a hefty financial setback, unfortunate hardships, and an unexpected medical emergency. Because I cannot drive I spent majority of my time at home with a toddler and a new baby, worried about how we were going to keep a roof over our heads, cover our utility bill, and where our next meal was coming from. It literally consumed my mind. I started loosing my hair in bald patches. I was then diagnosed with Alopecia which was stress induced due to depression and anxiety. I worried myself sick. My steroid treatments had to come out of pocket because I couldn’t afford insurance at the time. Which set us back even more. I knew I couldn’t start working until my youngest was old enough to start school. Today, both of my children are in school and I finally started working. I am a Special Education Aid and I love my job! Thankfully a kind woman that works with me lives in my neighborhood and gives me a ride to and from work when I need it. Now we are trying to catch up on our passed due utilities and rent but continue to still face obstacles. My husband was a victim of harassment and racism in the work area which forced him to quit his job. He is currently looking for a new job. He has an interview on 1/06/2020. Prayers and fingers crossed he gets it!! All we want is to see the light from all of this. Everyday we do our best and try our hardest to put every little penny we get towards a bill, food, and our children. We receive government assistance but it is not enough. If we could raise at least $2000 our financial burden would be lifted and we would FINALLY be able to breath again. This amount would help us cover our rent and get us current with our utility company. As well as help with my medical treatments. Please, I desperately ask if anybody could help us we would be forever gracious and indebted to you. We are just an empathetic and well-rounded little family trying to make it. We have optimism that we will get there but we need help getting there. We definitely plan to pay it forward one day to another family in need!!
– Thank you 🙏🏼❤️
