10 years ago I had to divorce an abusive husband and find a way for me and my daughter to survive. The events following the divorce include filing for bankruptcy, having a vehicle repossessed, somehow finding the bare minimum amount to bury my father that passed away, accumulating thousands and thousands of dollars of debt just to feed us and have a place to live, along with a complete emotional breakdown which lead to health issues. Mt daughter was born with a blood deficiency so medical bills were overwhelming to say the least. I began working 3 jobs just to be able to afford a place to leave and food. I never thought I would ever be out of debt and have security for my daughter.
Well, after 10 long and very difficult years of paying astronomical rent prices I have built my credit up to be qualified to purchase a home! I am asking if there is anyone that would would be so kind as to offer any donation possible to help aid me in making this dream come true for my daughter and I. Housing down payments and closing costs are very expensive. I currently rent a place to live for us with rent being increased regularly which makes it almost impossible to save anywhere close to the amount I would need to cover a mortgage down payment and closing costs.
I am exhausted from paying rent each month with nothing to show at the end of day. My goal and motivation is to show my daughter that you don’t have to stay in a relationship or situation. You need to have the drive and motivation to set goals and always work hard to achieve them. With everything that I have been through physically, mentally, emotionally, and financially; I am determined to make a better life for her and I.
My hope is that you will not gift me money out of sympathy, but out of kindness and understanding to help me reach this goal of owning a safe and healthy home.
