Hello, I am a single mom of a beautiful 10 month old baby girl. I have struggled throughout my entire pregnancy to provide a stable environment for my daughter. To give some background on our live as of present, we were blessed to finally be living in our own apartment and I just started a temporary job after months of applying to places. It’s been a struggle and an adjustment to juggle both work and parenting full time but I enjoy experiencing motherhood to the fullest. Currently I am desperately needing help financially with bills. I was hired on as a contractor/vendor for a school district in the student recruitment field. When I accepted the summer job offer and filled out on boarding paperwork I was told I would be getting paid biweekly on a Friday. I was told to submit an invoice of my hours in order to process for payout. I submitted my invoice for approval to my boss this past week with the expectation to get my first check this past Friday. I then get a disappointing call Wednesday evening from my boss stating that due to the holiday and the 2 week vacation their district office had already begun, I would not be getting paid and would have to wait another 2 weeks for payout. I was never made aware of this prior to submitting my invoice. I am devastated and so stressed about the situation my daughter and I are left in. I explained to my boss that I had my rent coming up, my car payment was already passed due (with the possibility to be repossessed since I lease from a second chance company), I have no toilet paper, my daughter is on her last 10 diapers and I have no money to fall back on. All I could do is cry in the moment because of the overwhelming shock I was in. I have always been one to help others when I can. I have tried reaching out to programs for help but most have stated it’ll take weeks to get approved for assistance. My daughter and I desperately need the help now. That first check was our lifeline and now it’s not coming and Im scared that we’ll be served an eviction notice or that my car will get repossessed. My daughter is running out of all the things I use that are basic necessities. I am asking if anyone can find it in their heart to please please help us. It’s hard for me to come on here and ask for this kind of help. I’m ashamed and embarrassed but I have no other support or help. Any amount help. I appreciate everyone who takes the time to read this post and everyone is who able to donate to help us as well. God bless y’all.
