I’m, a widowed single mom of two girls. Despite being a widow I don’t receive benefits because my husband was unemployed at the time of his death. I have recently been displaced from my home. I’m currently staying with a friend and her husband until I can find a way to come up with deposit money for an apartment. My car recently completely broken down due to needing a new transmission and the power steering went out. I was able to get into something used but can’t afford the downpayment of $1200 they wanted down. I am in desperate need to correct this financial downward spiral I’m in. I can’t get a loan due to my credit. My work doesn’t offer programs to assist those in need. This is more or less a last resort.
