My name is Craig, I am a father of four boys who live at home with me. Recently our situation became difficult when my vehicle broke down, We went almost a month without a vehicle. Due to not having reliable transportation ( I would pay people to take me me to work, the boys to childcare and not only would they be late sometimes they didn’t show up at all) I lost my job. We have recently gotten the vehicle out of the shop paying almost 400.00 dollars (over 400.00 before they provided a discount).
Currently I am looking for another long-term job/career placement while I am in the process of that I have also been asking to earn money buy doing side jobs, I’ve sold almost everything in our house (besides the boys things) to maintain during this time. We are currently in the process of being evicted, We were supposed to be out by the 17th of April, due to not having a vehicle nor a place for my children to go we are still here facing court and legal obligations ( I wanted to Avoid those, but at this time it I’m just a sitting duck). Prior to our vehicle being broke down; I received a utility bill (rent and water are together) that was over 1200.00 I was having difficulties paying the entire amount by it’s due date ( April, 01 2019).
I have found a place for us to go short term, I have concerns about it but I can not have my children without a place to live. My boys depend on me and only my income to proved for them, I have reached an absolute low. My children do not deserve to live like this and I will make sure they are back in there own house as soon as I can.
At this moment I am becoming behind on car payments, the twins are getting low on diapers and clothes (outgrew 0-3 and 6-3 since this started). I am not receiving many opportunities with side jobs, and we are still taking things from Michigan (House we are being evicted from) to Indiana ( Friends Apartment we are going to stay at) it is about a 35-40 minute drive each way so the amount of gas I am using is ridicules amount. I have maybe 4-5 loads to take to the new place. If I could afford a sitter I would have 2-3. I have the twins furniture ( swings, cribs and seats) the other boys ( beds, TV’s and books/shelf) and then odds and ends (totes of clothes, toys ect)
I am not exactly sure how i am supposed to end one of these.
If you could be able to help us in anyway possible It would be greatly apprehended. I will do work as well if you have anything I can do or know where I could go.
