I am a 51 year old mother of two great children ages 18 and 17. I’ve a a great job for the last 15 years that has allowed me to give them what they have needed and wanted and MOST of all allowed me to never miss a football game, volleyball game or gymnastics tournament. I have always been present and loved watching them grow into the beautiful human beings they are today.
About two years ago during the pandemic even though I was one of the only ones who stayed at my work which was a blessing and a curse as I was working and not receiving any benefits that probably could have helped me more than working. So we lost the house I raised my kids up in. Finally by the grace of GOD I found a new home and we had a roof over our heads! My son (now 18) just graduated from High School and we enrolled him in college which will be starting on Monday August 29th. My daughter (now 17) will be a senior this year with her online charter school starting also on the 29th.
Tuesday August 2nd I lost my job of over 15 years. THE WORST DAY OF MY LIFE! I keep telling myself that it will be ok I mean I am great at my job and I will find another one closer and better than the last.
I put together a resume (which was quite a task as I haven’t had to do that in over 15 years) and started immediately. Started well, many interviews and also many rejections. Finally after over 3 weeks I found my dream job. I DID IT!! I am elated however, I won’t be starting until the 10th of September and won’t get paid until the 24th.
By the 10th of September most everything will be turned off. I’ve used the little I had saved up to pay a few bills, gas and food but literally only have $45 left to my name after they came knocking on my door this morning to take my refrigerator that I rent and had to pay half of the bill I owe them. So yep I have $45 to my name now.
I have reached out to HHS to get benefits but have been denied. I’ve tried to get loans but no one will give me one with a foreclosure on my credit and no job. I’ve reached out to multiple agencies that my HHS case worker gave me (LIHWAP, CEAP, TANF, SNAP, SOS, TDHCA,BVCAP, the Salvation Army,Montgomery County Emergency Assistance, Creative outreach ministries, and many other churches in my area for assistance to no avail. I have never had to do anything like this before! I’ve never not been able to provide. I now have exhausted all resources except this one. So I’m laying it all on the line here.
Im asking for your help to keep my family up and running so I can start my new job and pick up where I left off, providing for my children so they can continue their education and become responsible adults.
I am in need of $3500 to catch up on past due bills before they get cut off and to get to the end of next month. I am asking this as a last resort to provide for my children and for the prospect of a bright future for all of us. If you can help I would be forever grateful and if you can’t then I thank you for the time you spent to read my story. May you be blessed!
