Researchers have said that just in 2015 year ending alone over 80 percent of the households in America that we’re single households we’re in fact ran by a FEMALE head of household which we’re mostly living very poor.
Many people may say well there is government assistance for them to get a grant but it’s hard to find and information regarding that said topic anywhere. So in hopes to help the single mothers out in the world this article will give you some insight on the different assistance topics we can cover including where and how to get a grant or scholarship. Also, you will read and see how simple it is to receive help with income expenses and medical insurance.
Are there really grants for a single mother?
Of course they do but these grants are not only for single mothers. However, that doesn’t mean there isn’t help for a mother to receive one. I know its mind boggling that the government hasn’t had any means created for money for a single mother that is actually in the shape of a grant. One thing the government does for a single mother is they assist them through a group or have set sponsors through a company, and sometimes they are covered by the actual income assistance completely.
Below are a few websites that will redirect you to free items that you can get just for registering on the website.
Low Income Assistance for Single Mothers / Government Grants
As I said there is not an official grant for a single mother available that is FEDERAL. However a single mother can go through federal programs and register and sign up for them. Those kinds of programs are usually for households with low income. Which means you would also qualify for Welfare. No matter what the case these are programs to help those who make below the limit and live poorly.
Below are different types of assistance based in the United States.
TANF – TEMPORARY ASSISTANCE FOR NEEDY FAMILIES
TANF is a crucial for many low income families located within the US.
With TANF you receive a small amount of cash every month that you can use toward your food, rent, and other necessities. However you only receive TANF for up to 60 month limit.
If you are a single mother and you have children in your home who are less than 19 years old you are eligible for TANF.
SNAP – SUPPLEMENTAL NUTRITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
Food-stamps or SNAP as other people may refer to is financial help for meals. You can receive money every month to place food on the table if you are on low or no income.
For most of Americans living in poverty SNAP is potentially the only assistance they can get.
Research has shown that in 2015 SNAP benefits have helped at least 45 million Americans. Most of the ones who receive the stamps are under are up to the age of 18.
When you go to use your benefits for SNAP you have your own personal debit card to ring your groceries up with at the register. If you are interested in trying to get on with SNAP benefits all you have to do is fill and application out and send it in or take it into a local office that deals with SNAP benefits.
NSLP – NATIONAL SCHOOL LUNCH PROGRAM
This is a program that gives free (or discounted) food to students whose parent’s income is bellow a poverty level. The income needs to be at least between 130-185 percent bellow the poverty line.
Most the time if a person is a receiver of SNAP benefits their children will be accepted into this program for free lunches. But, that doesn’t mean if you don’t have or receive SNAP that your children are disqualified.
You need to contact your child’s school to apply.
TEFAP – THE EMERGENCY FOOD ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
Food for the American families who are in the poverty range not matter what the age.
If you have received food stamps before or any other program assisting you and helping you such as the ones in this article you could also be approved for this program.
You will need to contact your State distribution agency to learn more about the Emergency food assistance program.
Local Food Banks
A food bank doesn’t exactly fit into the whole “Grant” program area as it is actually a location in your town where you can get food if you are in need.
Do not allow you or your family to go without food. If you ever reach that trouble you can call 211 and ask them where the nearest food bank is based on your location.
More then 200 food banks exist with the feeding america foundation and they supply enough food to feed over 40 million people.
WIC – WOMEN, INFANTS AND CHILDREN PROGRAM
This program includes a package deal where you as a mother are able to receive healthy foods, whether you are pregnant or a new mother, and also to children who are 5 or under.
WIC is a program that is temporary and only used for a short amount of time – usually between 6 to 12 months.
EARLY HEAD START / HEAD START
These programs are for children up to 5 years old.
You can receive free child’s medical and dental care along with their schooling, and dietary needs.
Find your closes headstart office on their website or call at 1-866-763-6481.
Insurance for unemployment
This is a special program which will pay you weekly if you are unemployed and it had nothing to do with you for you being fired or let go. You will only be able to receive this benefit for maximum 26 weeks. Different states have different benefit rules. But most states will average out at about 45% of whatever the average weekly income is.
Single mothers who are out of a job temporarily can find solace with these benefits and can help make the burden less for themselves because this pay will restore what you have lost from losing your work.
If you want to try and get this started and opened for you, you will have to find your local unemployment office or apply on the website for this specific program. Most states will allow you to also try to sign up for this over the phone.
Section 8 housing
Section 8 is basically a program that helps a family be able to pay for their housing. If approved you will receive a voucher of up to 70 percent of your bills (utilities and rent). You are expected to pay the other 30 percent.
If you want to apply and feel you qualify you can get in touch with your local office involved with public housing, the HUD office.
CCAP – CHILD CARE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
This is a benefit for families who can’t afford to place their children in daycare while working.
You still have to pay a certain percentage but it isn’t a big lump of money. The less you earn, the less you need to contribute.
EITC – Earned Income Tax Credit
It is a tax benefit for people with low income. You could potentially get as much as $6,000.
If you normally have a tax rate of $1050 but you are allowed $5550 then you get refund of $4500.
There is a Children’s Tax Credit too for as much as $1,000 for EACH child.
LIHEAP – LOW INCOME HOME ENERGY ASSISTANCE PROGRAMLIHEAP is a program that is a one time help to help pay for heating / cooling expenses.
Most of the time this is for the disabled or families with children or disabled person in the home.
If you need any extra information regarding this topic you can get in touch through the number 1-866-674-6327 or a local number for your local LIHEAP office.
WAP – WEATHERIZATION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
Weatherization assistance program lowers energy bills for families in need. Usually the elderly and families involving children are accepted and put to the top of the list before all.
Your monthly income need to be below 200 percent poverty level.
To apply, find a local WAP center.
Medicaid is help with medical expenses. If you do not have health insurance this gives you certain benefits as long as your income restriction meets the level it should.
A lot of single mothers may meet the standards to be recipients of Medicaid even if you are unemployed.
Every state has different rules about Medicaid plans. You can find out exact requirements on this website.
Together with ObamaCare it ensures that even single mothers who didn’t receive any health benefits will now be able to have coverage.
CHIP – CHILDREN HEALTH INSURANCE
CHIP gives children without health insurance a chance to have health benefits all the way up until they are nineteen. It is for families whose income is too high to receive Medicaid benefits.
It provides every type of benefit you can think of — dental, eye exams, and even annual doctor’s exams.
Every state has its own rules. If you would like to learn a little more about this specific benefit you can call 1-877 Kids now (1-877-543-7669)
Federal Pell Grants
Aid program for students of up to $5,815 for those in need to be able to set foot into college.
This is the best opportunity for a mother who is single to finally be able to finish her schooling and finally continue in the workforce. The money is completely free of charge with no interest rates or paybacks ever.
You need to fill out an application and submit it for a pell grant and have it turned in on or before June 30th of every year.
Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant
Similar to the Pell Grant. If you already have had pell grants and you are at the top of the charts in need you will be first on the list to receive this. Depending on a persons needs that are wrapped in with their financial struggle will ultimately decide who will receive anywhere between $100 too $4,000 annually.
Charities can be a way to seek help for you and your children whether you are in need of food or clothing or even housing. A lot of charities around the world actually have their own food banks that they run and they will give you bags of free food.
If you go to salvation army a lot of the times they will let you sleep there if you have no where else to go especially if it is a result of violence.
Most churches will offer you food and clothes or maybe even a place to stay if you have been recently kicked out by the one you are living with.
To find information on this you should look through your phone books local listing or yellow page. You can also research online and see what churches are available to your area and call them and ask what services they do offer.
Single moms can receive loans usually relatively quickly but I would not recommended that at all. You could potentially go into debt and not be able to rise back from that.
Sometimes you have no choice because you have to fix your broken car or maybe pay for utilities and food and need the help right then. But you have to be able to pay that loan realistically quick.
Pay attention to your credit because if you try to get a loan through a bank or anyone they will check your credit score and see if it is even available to be able to place a loan out to you. If it is a loan that is for payday loans or credit card advances they will not run a check but you will end up paying more after fees and costs.
Line of Credit
If your credit is decent some people ask a bank for a loan personally. Most of the time this is a better idea then asking for a payday loan because if you need quick money with lower rates of interest this is it.
On a personal loan interest is lower dramatically but you have to pay in instalments. It doesn’t really fit criteria for an emergency. Normally if you just tell them you do not have any more funds and that is why you need this they will turn you away. If your credit is poor you will not be able to even touch this offer.
Short term (payday) loans
This is a very popular type of loan. You may know it by the term “Cash advance.” The interest runs really high on these and it is a loan that is only for a small time frame.
This is a loan that would more then likely be considered if a problem arises and you needed to repair your car or had a disastrous dental emergency. You have to know for sure you will be able to give every penny back.
If you do not pay this type of loan back you could be in loads of trouble financially.
Credit card cash advance
Do you own a credit card? If so you will be able to get money from a bank as easy as 1, 2, 3. This is not a method that is highly praised though because as soon as you start taking money out of the bank the interest keeps rising and you also are charged for using and pulling out of the bank a fee. This is potentially the easier options if you do need cash asap but you have to pay it back and make sure you absolutely can.
When it is all said and done grants will not solve your money issues within your home if that is what you expect. To get a grant is definitely not easy it isn’t a walk in the park by any means.
If you are looking to get a more stable source of financially being stable you should probably look in areas around you or find a women shelter until you can get back up on your feet.
If you think you have all the time in the world you can apply for other areas of assistance such as Food stamps, HUD, and etc. They do take a lot of time and effort for someone to get back with you and let you know if you have been accepted and enrolled. Try finding a part time working job as a way to financially start becoming stable again.
The moral of this is you can not expect a grant to fall into your hands without effort and take all your worries away. They are only here too do one thing and that doesn’t usually fix anything with your financial setting.
This is all on you and what you decide, no one else can decide for you.
I am a 32 year old single mother of two, a six year old son and a four year old daughter. In addition to being a mom, I am a full time college student. I am working on first getting my associates in Business Administration, which I should have next Spring, and then hope to eventually obtain my Masters in Business Administration as well as Marketing. I work in real estate sales, I have been fortunate that it has allowed me to work around my kids schedules and keep daycare cost to a minimum. I also have a very small real estate investment company, I have one rental property that was supposed to be a flip but had undisclosed water issues in the basement. That made the project go over budget resulting in needing to hold the property for a few years to turn a profit. As a single family rental, after all expenses, it is only generating $300 a month and that is getting rolled back into the business.
The past year has been a very challenging one. First I lost a grandmother, then I lost a grandpa and then I lost my other grandpa. That is still something I am working on fully processing. Right after my second grandfather passed, I had an shoulder injury that is still being treated. My injury has resulted in me having bursitis, tendonitis and a partially frozen shoulder. The combination of loss and injury caused me to become depressed. I am on medication for depression and things are starting to get better in that regard, but all these events have greatly impacted my career and my earnings. I know eventually things will turn around, but right now I do have very low income.
Right before I found out I was pregnant with my son, my long term boyfriend had an affair and kicked me out of the house. I found myself living back at my mothers house, which is always a massive blow to the ego after living away from home for years. I had left my job when my ex and I started trying to get pregnant, because we had planned on me being a stay at home mom, so I was suddenly pregnant with nowhere to live and no job. I was living at home when my birth control failed and I became pregnant with my daughter. Things with her father and I went sour when we found out I was having a girl and not a boy. He still has very little to do with her.
So where has this all lead me? I am still living at home with my mother. My mother is a disabled nurse and while I help as much financially as I can, our house just is not an affordable option. In addition, it is not the healthiest environment for me or my children. My mother, while she has been a huge help to my family, is controlling and incredibly belittling. I am a responsible 32 year old mother, yet she tries to control my every move and doesn’t allow me or my children to have friends over. She puts me down for everything and no matter how much I give her or how hard I try it is never enough. She takes the fact I am combating depression right now and uses it against me and I can’t stand living this way anymore.
I can’t simply go rent a place, to rent a three bedroom house I am looking at spending $1200 a month with no utilities included. My income is not that high. I can’t receive any state or government assistance because as soon as I get one commission check I will get cut off from that assistance. My only option comes down to buying a house, but I do not have the down payment and have a bankruptcy from 4 years ago after an ex racked up massive debt under my name. I am starting to feel desperate. I need some way to actually get somewhere in life. I need some way to give my children a better home. A home where they can each have their own rooms. A home where they won’t get yelled at for making a mess while playing with their toys. A home where they won’t get yelled at for playing and being children. A home where I can have a piece of mind.
There is a bank owned house on the market that is in my ideal town, on my ideal street in that town and on land that I can eventually utilize to make money. It is a perfect house for my family and I in every possible way I could imagine. I am using this house as my what I’m requesting help with. It is listed at $180,000 and I do think with a large enough deposit I could get a mortgage. I, however, would not feel comfortable mortgaging more than $50,000-$60,000. There are other homes, less ideal but I could make them work, as well. This is just my “oh I wish” home.
I don’t know if there is any other information about my situation that I should put. I hope this gives a good idea of my family and what our situation is. Thank you very much for taking the time to read this and thank you for your consideration in helping my babies and I.
I am a 37 year old single mother to an absolutely amazing 8 year old little boy. Since the day I found out I was pregnant it has been just thr two of us. He was born a month premature, had to spend one month in the NICU, had five blood transfusions and there wasn’t a day or hour that went by that I was not there until I was able to bring him home. Up until recently everything has been going good, but about two months ago I seemed to have hit a string of bad luck. About one month ago I lost my job which has made it extremely difficult for me to pay my bills. Even though I have been looking for a job since then I have still yet to find one. About two weeks ago, my sons father went to family court without me knowing and made a list of false accusations against me, which in result granted him temporary custody of my little boy. If that wasnt heartbreaking enough my sons father also got a order of protection for my son against me. Throughout the entire 8 years of my little boys life I have not gone more than 4 days without seeing him. I was not able to say goodbye and I don’t even know if he knows what is going on. I am not able to see him, kiss him or even hug him. At night before bed we would do this little bedtime ritual that was for just us, where I would put an invisible shield over him so no monsters could get him and I haven’t been able to even say goodnight to him. His father just ripped him out of the only house he knew and away from his mother. Now I have CPS coming to my house and I need help. My entire life I have never asked anyone for anything. I have to get money to pay my rent, pay utilities, pay for food, pay for a lawyer and also pay to get my car out of the repair shop. Please if anyone can do anything to help me get my son back into my open arms again where he belongs ☹️☹️
I never thought I would end up here but I guess life has its way of throwing curve balls when you least expect it.
I left my previous job on 4/6/18 because I moved to a different part of town and the commute was no longer doable. I quickly found a new job prior to resigning from my previous one, I was happy new home, new job, and better opportunities for my 5 year old daughter I thought. I started my new job on 4/16/18, I have 4 years of experience in my field (Dental Assistant) but when you go to a new office everything is new to you because every office/doctor operates differently. I was told I would be properly trained, I would be given 60 days to learn what was needed. Well needless to say that didn’t happen, all the team lead had me do was “shadow” i was eager to start working with patients because that’s how I learn best. 2 days later 4/18/18 the office manager and team lead pull me in and inform me that they talked and since the team lead is already having to train 3 other girls and with the amount of time she would have to spend with them she wanted someone who could pick it up in 1 week and that my skills would be great for a different office. Who learns in 1 week? I have came across people in the same field who have more years of experience than i have and even they need time to learn when going to a new office, plus they never saw my skills so I don’t know where they get that from. Anyway, she also said that having me shadow is how she evaluates and that she’s been doing it for so long that she’s good at evaluating people this way and from what she gathered the amount of time it would take to train me she wouldn’t have time as she has other girls to train and feels “it wouldn’t be fair to keep me and make me waste my time.” I tried to convince both the lead and office manager that I could pick up sooner than the 2-3 mo probation period, I was starting to make sense of things already and that I felt I wasn’t given a fair chance as I never got to work with patients but to no avail. I was let go, if they wanted someone who could learn in a week then they should have mentioned it during my interview and I would not have wasted my time with them when i could have been else where.
So now here I am with no job, when I have rent ($1300/mo), bills (total $400/mo), daycare ($270/mo), student loans (balance $10,051.05), and groceries ($300/mo) to pay for. I feel like a failure, I feel like I failed my daughter, she cried last night because she wanted milk and I couldn’t get it for her it breaks my heart. Of course I’m looking for another job but there’s no telling how long it will be and the bills wont stop coming in just because I’m unemployed. I have been crying since yesterday, I want to scream and punch everything as I feel it’s not fair. My daughter’s father has little to no involvement in her life and to be honest I never really needed him. I am not the type to ask anyone for anything especially money, I feel embarrassed having to do this but at this point what choice do I have? I have a little mouth to feed and a roof to keep over her head. Please help contribute to my monthly bills, if I could get my student loans paid off I would feel relieved. Any donation that you can make big or small during this hard time for my daughter and I will be greatly appreciated. Thanks and God bless.
I am a single mother of 3 children. One of my children is disabled. We have dealt with 5 hospitalizations in less than a year. I have to work around my kids school schedule. I am their sole provider. It is hard to find someone to work with your schedule when it has to be mon-fri 8am-3pm. I get them on and off the bus. I make sure their homework gets done and that they are fed and bathed. The last job I had threatened to fire me for being with my son in the hospital. Refused any doctors notes. I’m looking for a job to work around me right now and its been difficult. I have over 11 years of restaurant experience and 4 years of management experience. A lot of places tell me they would love to have me as a manager but now that I’m on my own I don’t have the availability do so. I need help before I end up being late on rent or utilities while I look for someone to have compassion and hire me on with the schedule I can work. I have an excellent work ethic and its sad some businesses will never know because they always say ” we can’t use someone just mon-fri”. Its hard to get a job outside of the food industry because that’s what I’ve done for the last 11 years. Even with my management experience. I greatly appreciate anyone who can help. I’ll continue praying and applying till I find something. Thank you and God Bless.
I am a recently divorced mother of two teens and a college student. My ex-husband is not stable enough to hold a job due to mental issues and depression. I did not file child support, knowing he would not be able to pay. For the last three years, I have tried supporting my family on my own. I am a special education teacher and I have an online store on Teachers Pay Teachers. Due to taking out 5 payday loans, I can not seem to get back on my feet and am falling further and further behind. I believe I would financially be okay if it weren’t for the 5 payday loans. I took the loans out to pay rent, etc. Now, I’m unable to pay rent and all the other bills and extra expenses it cost to have teens and a senior in high school. I recently paid rent and the check returned along with the pet deposit. We just moved to a cheaper place.
I owe around $3400 in payday loans. I owe $725 for rent and $350 for pet deposit. i owe $47 in returned fees to the bank. I need to order my daughters cap and gown which is $75. I need to pay car insurance. It was recently canceled. I need at least $270 to get insurance again. My daughter’s car is in danger of being repossessed since they received a notice that the insurance is canceled.
I don’t have anyone to borrow from. Family members do not have that kind of money. My credit score is in bad shape. I’ve tried to take a $5,000 loan out to consolidate my bills and the things I desperately need to pay for. No one will give me a loan. Churches seem to be broke as well. I work very hard, and I am trying to grow my online business. I’ve gotten myself in a financial bind, and I don’t know how to get out of it. It seems hard working, middle class people can’t find the help they need because they make “too much money.” I have never liked asking for money. I am in a desperate situation, and the situation seems to be getting worse. I don’t want to get evicted, but I’m afraid that will happen if I don’t find the help I need. I will be truly grateful to anyone that can help, and will pay it forward one day when I’m able to. Thank you for your consideration. (I tried to upload snapshot of bank (negative), but the system said the file was unsupported. If anyone needs any proof, I am willing to send what it is needed. Again, I appreciate any help that I can get. God bless!)
I’m new to this whole asking for help thing. My entire life I’ve worked hard for everything I’ve ever owned until a couple years ago when I was unexpectedly diagnosed with stage 3 cancer. Little did I know that day would be the beginning of what seems to be a never ending streak of bad luck.
I will never forget the day I received that call. It was my birthday. I had surgery a few weeks before to fix what the doctors thought was a hernia. Turns out it was a lymphnode. Once biopsied, it revealed stage 3 cancer. The doctors gave me an 11%chance to live. My daughter was 11 at the time. Also residing in my household was my boyfriend of 3 years and my father. My father had been am alcoholic my entire life and was about to lose his house because of it so I decided to move him in with me to help him sober up.
200 hours of chemo and 70 radiation treatments later I was heading into my final 96 hour (straight) week of chemo when I heard a loud bang towards the back of my house. I checked on my daughter, who was fine. I then went into my fathers room only to find him on the ground, face first in his own vomit, unresponsive and without a pulse. I was able to necessitate him long enough for the paramedics to arrive. He was transported to a hospital an hour and a half away where he remained in a vegetative state for 5 months. He had suffered a subdural hematoma, or a severe brain bleed.
Apparently a year prior to this my dad had fallen twice in the house he just lost while he was inebriated. He had hit his head once on tile and once on concrete and never sought medical attention. His brain had been bleeding for a year and on the day I found him, it had finally built up enough pressure to basically kill him.
Now fast forward 6 months. I’ve finally completed my cancer treatment and am now caring for my father full time. His injury left him permanently disabled and in need of 24/7 care. . My boyfriend then got injured and was down for 6 months… or so I believed. The fighting between him and I rapidly increased and I eventually kicked him out. He ended up taking our entire life savings ($200k), stole both mine and my fathers identity and had my home network hacked so badly it ruined everything I was trying to rebuild. You see, I had to start a business from home during all of this because he refused to get a job. So now I’m a full time mom, nurse, chef, maid, landscaper and somehow need to provide an income for a household of 4 on my own. I succeeded! I started my own business from home. Just as I had landed my first 2 contracts ($150K/ yr), I got hacked. Hacked so badly in fact that it took me 18 months to convince the FBI that this was happening. I’m a computer geek…I know just about everything there is to know about computers and what was happening to me was straight out of a Sci-Fi movie.
Because of all of this, I lost my business, my cars, my house and my dad. Its now just my daughter and I and we have been living in a hotel room for the last 2 weeks. I would like to start my business again because I’m good at what I do and everything in my core tells me this is what I’m supposed to be doing. I can’t do that without a place to live. I spend every waking hour, of every day, trying to make enough money to pay for another night at the hotel. I have never asked for help a day in my life. My pride wouldn’t let me. My daughter is more important to me than my pride. That being said, I’m humbly asking if anyone could give me a hand up. I would like any of these things to happen:
1- Help paying for our hotel
2, Help getting into a place
3- an investor for my business
4- Work to do until my business is able to take flight again
Like I said, I’ve worked my entire life for everything I’ve ever owned, and that’s not going to change now. I am more than willing to work for any of the above if need be. I just need a hand up to get out of this rut.
Our story continues and unfortunately it only gets worse. Although my faith in humanity has dropped to a near nom-existence, I refuse to give up because I want my daughter to see that life is tough… but it’s how we handle the tough times that defines our character. She’s seem her mom get thrown to the wolves over and over. What she doesn’t know is that when they throw me to the wolves, I’m going to come back the pack leader. I’m hoping from this post, I will find a few to join that pack.
Thank you for reading!
Hello, my name is Stefany Avalos Lara. I’m currently 20 years old. I have 2 beautiful kids, being raised as a single mother. I just had my baby girl not too long ago, which is why I’m not currently employed. I’ve been living off of my parents and a couple thousand dollars I had in my savings. I’m just asking for a little bit of financial assistance so I can get back up on my feet just until I can find a good paying job. Don’t think that i’m the type to always be asking people for money. This is just a one time favor that I’m asking. I can’t think of anything else to do. I already got a loan of $1400 and with interest it came up to $5000. I can’t afford to be getting loans anymore and I don’t want to have to live like this anymore. I just need $8000. That’s all I’m asking. So please help me. This fall coming up I want to get back to school, into business management. I want to be a financial advisor, actually. I know a lot of people want to become a doctor or something in the medical field, but I actually want to become a financial advisor. I pray every night that a miracle happens to me and that my life goes the way i want it to. But sometimes we just have to be patient and pray our time will come.
Corrayah my daughter is 7, Aason my son is going to be 3 on April 23rd, and Daviam my son is 8 months old. I work 40 hours a week to provide what I can for my children and I am 100% on my own. Most days I get home and my body is screaming at me to lay down and rest while my kids are begging me to play. What do I do? I play. I have made so many mistakes in my life but my children arw not one of them nor do I find it their responsibility to pay for my poor choices. So yes, I play. Some days I wake up still in my work clothes from the day before. And honestly, I don’t mind. What hurts the most is thinking that this is the best its ever going to get, killing myself at a dead end job just to make ends meet never having the time or energy to really enjoy being a mother and raising my children. I had dreams of being the first woman President, I had plans on becoming a speech writer for politicians who wanted to make a real difference in the world. I had goals of teaching our youths how to change the world with knowledge being power. All of these hopes for my life changed every time I had to set aside my educational pursuits because bringing in money was necessary to survive.
I was in an abusive relationship with Aason’s father for almost 2 years when he finally beat me so badly I decided that being on my own was better than showing them nightmare examples of how men and women treat one another.
I was surprised by son Daviam, I did not want anymore children, was on birth control, and went to get my tubes removed just to find out I was expecting again. His father was a friend of mine for years. A man I had previously dated but it did not work out. We stayed friends over the years and decided to try again when we found out Daviam was on his way. On Thanksgiving of 2017 he had a breakdown. He attacked me and stabbed me several times even forced Aason to partake in my torture and to stab me as well.
Still I did not let these awful experiences keep me from moving forward. Unfortunately I feel as if no matter how hard I work, or push myself forward or put right refuse to give up, I cant help but lose faith in myself and question every move I make as a mother. They deserve so much more than what I am giving them right now.
I was kicked out of our home living in a run down motel. I got a job saved up, bought a van, and got us an apartment. Not once did I quit or think I cant do this. But now I feel as if I’ve plateaued. Is this as far as I can go? Is this the life we will be forced to live? Mommy working all the time, not being able to afford dance classes or swimming lessons or sports gear? This cant be it. I’ve got to do something before I lose all hope.
Hence the reason I’m on here asking for help. I need to pay off my van. That will enable me to save some additional money each month for more family activities. I need internet so I can finish school. I have an Associate’s Degree in Political Science and several credits towards my bachelors. I just can’t afford internet. I want to finish my bachelors go to law school take the bar and become a lawyer. I want a career one I enjoy where I’m helping people, making good money, and still have time to actually be with my kids in the moment, and not utterly exhausted praying for bed time to come quickly.
When corrayah was first born I worked 2 full time jobs and went to school full time. Yes it was easier with one and yes I had support from family. But still, I went to work, I went to school, I made the sacrifices, and I know I can do it again if just given the chance and thw right tools. I saved up and bought a new laptop for myself. I came up with a solid work schedule and home schedule which enables me to work cook clean have kid time and still sit down for a few hours of homework time. I don’t want money to just pay bills or buy a obe time memory. I need this money so I can create a life a future for my family. A life that isn’t one of destitution and exhaustion.
I owe 2000 on my van with A & S Auto and Pawn in Burley, ID. Less if paid off in full. The average internet cost is 65 a month and that doesn’t even include the installation. I need someone willing to pay for my internet for however long it takes to finish my bachelors online. It would go buy a lot faster if I didn’t have to work and could just do my classes but realistically no one is going to foot our bills for the next 2 years while I earn my degree so I’m asking for the next best thing. Just pay this one bill for as long as it takes.
I’m not lazy. I’m not an addict. I’m not a quitter. I will do this for me and my children, just someone please help me because I can’t do it alone. They are good kids, I’m a good mother, and we are doing the best we can to be a strong family and overcome these obstacles together. This help is more than just a hand up, its a saving grace. I’m becoming scared and lost and hopeless and I don’t want to succumb to these emotions that are meant to bring me down and keep me there. Please, someone, anyone, help me fight this fear, help me find my path again, and help me to keep the hope by giving me a chance to do better for my family.
I am single and staying that way. I am in therapy to help me become a better person that makes better choices for herself. I am on medications to keep me from giving in to all this pain and anger and heartbreaking destruction I so unknowingly invite into my life. I’m learning the signs of destructive behavior, I’m learning to cope, I’m learning boundaries. But most of all I am learning that I am unstoppable, and I’m also learning that I am not wonder woman. I cannot save the world. But I can save my family. Please, stand by me, invest in me, give me the chance I so desparately need in order to not just survive but thrive!!!
- I usually don’t do these because people can be really cruel in this world but this is my LAST hope. I have a very good friend she is a single mother of 3 and doing her best to make ends meet. She works 2 jobs and still is struggling. I don’t wanna give to much detail but for the past few months she has been in and out of homes and just been havin a rough time on her own with no family to help her. I know her current situation and I just wanna help the best way I can. I helped where I could now I just need a little extra. She owes just a little on her car for it to be paid of completely. Transportation is a MAJOR key since she has kids. If you can find it in the kindness of your heart to help me help a friend please do. She doesn’t know I’m doing this I wanna surprise her. She has been with me for a long time and this could be a blessing for both of us. Thank you so much for donating and helping out. Even if you just came to read what my problem was I thank you too. paypal.me/Toriixvxx/500
Hello I am a single mom to an amazing 15 yr old boy. I have finally enrolled in college to try and better our life and show my son anything is possible, I have worked upward to 3 jobs at once to provide for us. As I mentioned I have started college and 3 weeks after started I was laid off of work. Now I’m in position where I feel as if I’m watching my dreams go down the drain….Rent and light bill in due yesterday so now if I cant find help, that I will pay back,Im have to drop out of classes to go find work and even typing that makes me cry. Before I have us end up on the street that’s what I will do, just seems so unfair. I have taken care of me and my son alone his entire life. Yes there have been many sacrifices and I’m not complaining he is worth every bit of it, just wanted better for him and myself. He is now at the age where he wants things and he desires things, things Ive never been able to give and its heart breaking. Again I’m not asking for handouts just a handup til we can get back on ur feet. I have dreamed of the day I could be in school and studying criminal justice and to have had that dream for almost a month now to have it taken away will just be so wrong. We have never been a rich family as matter of fact we walk everywhere we go haven’t had a car in over 6 years when my Saturn finally died on us and had no way to get her back on her feet. So I sold her for 400 dollars to give my son a Christmas that year and birthday party this bday is dec 14 so needless to say that month is difficult. That year was first and only party my son now 15 has ever had, I thank the Lord I have a son that’s so understanding, but as a mom I cry myself to sleep every single night because I feel like a letdown to him. I guess that’s my story in a condensed version. Thanks for reading and any help would be more than a dream and blessing to us. god bless and have a great day.
Hello to all that have stumbled upon my post. Thank you for taking the time to read of my situation. For those who choose to assist me in this time of need, an extra thank you. If you are reading these pleas for financial relief then most likely you have a huge heart and are what one would describe a humanitarian. However to me, you will be my guardian angel. It has been months of set back after another. I was able to gain employment at a local automotive repair shop. For a woman to get hired on as a mechanic,, it takes a little extra talent. I soon realised it wasn’t talent. I accepted a position at a shop that was quickly going under. I am extremely behind in rent and bills. By God’s grace I have been able to get by this far. However there is a debt due and I must get caught up. The stress and embarrassment are quite overwhelming. All forms of help accepted. Whether it be financial, emotional, advice, or just a motivational story. Prayers are accepted as well. I don’t have pictures of bills as I’m just paying half portions. So I’ll include a photo of myself. Hopefully something in my face will look honest and genuine. If you are interested in seeing the bills and calculating my shares,,, I’ll gladly furnish the upon request. Again, thank you for your time and all the help you provide.
My name is Jessica and I am a single mother of 3, I have worked in higher education for the past 5 years. I recently moved into a new education opportunity and they moved all of us to Salary. Given I am not able to work more hours to bring my pay up I have become behind in a few bills. My oldest child will be graduating High School in a few months and that expense has been tough but is required for him to be able to walk and have that experience. I also have a daughter that is in High School and vice president of student counsel so there are small expectations to keep her straight A’s up. I do not get support from the father any longer as he figured out if he is not working child support will not be taken out. There are a lot of stereotypes that go along with single mothers and the success of the children they are raising. All my children are just as hard working in their grades and future and this is something I have instilled in them. I am very strong willed, hard working and put my children first. I am not someone who asks for help, yet I drive a car that is expensive. I am very simple, have not spent money on myself in about 2 years and I am content with that if my children have what they need to be successful and have the support as well. This is something new to me as I am not known to be someone who asks for help. The expenses I am seeking help with several different bills such as Utility, Car maintenance/ Tires for a 1996 Nissan Maxima and just to be able to get ahead on groceries and summer clothes for the children. Anything you can do to help would be appreciated in more ways that you think.

I could write this today to beg for money to fix my life, I could explain how I spent a year homeless or how I’m in a few thousand pounds debt or how I often don’t have money to buy food despite working a full time job, I could do all this and much more to generate some sympathy for my cause but that is not why I am here, in this instance I do not matter, I would like to talk to you about a woman called Emma, Emma is an outstanding human being, she raised two children on her own, she gave all she could to give her children the best future even if it resulted in her being out of pocket or missing a meal, Emma did all she could for her children and so much more, she gave so much that she is now in over £20,000 of debt, rent arrears and she spends countless hours and days at a job that does not respect her hard work and good nature, and yet she still does not hesitate to carry on giving to better her children’s lives even if it is gradually destroying her own, I am proud to say she is my mother, and admittedly I am part to blame as to why she cries at night and goes hungry, she is amazing and as much as I am trying to fix my own life so that I can begin to repair hers, I can’t do it, she deserves so much more and this is why I am asking for help, not for myself, only I can fix myself, I need help to make her happy again and give her a life without fear and anger and upset, so yes I am here asking for £50,000 for my mother, I know that is a lot but no matter how much, if any is received, just know the money is headed to someone who has earned and deserves it more than anyone I know. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I wish you all the best
Hello! I am a 20 year old mother of 2 boys, age 1 and 2 year. And i need help, as I am raising them alone.
I was recently evicted by my roommate of 2 years, i left with family to go be with my grandfather as he passed away. To my surprise when i returned home later that night all of mine and my sons belongings were in the front yard. I moved into my grandfathers house as a temporary arrangement but the house is going to be sold soon. I lost my job as a waitress because I have no vehicle and no longer had a baby sitter for my children and my job wasn’t paying enough to get one. I’ve since been notified that i owe my roommates mother $3600 of back rent because she requested to take me to court and i was not notified seeing as she sent text proof that mail was being with held from me in her home, since that was my mailing address at the time. I am in desperate need of help. I’d like to get a down payment for a vehicle and a little extra for necessities for my children and a baby sitter so that i can get a new job and save for a new home before my children and i no longer have one at all. Any little thing will be greatly appreciated, thank you.!
hello, I never thought I would do something like this but I’m struggling and have no one to help and I have run out of ideas what to do. I am 25 years old in full time work and I have looked after my younger sister as her full time guardian since I was 21. This caused me to move to an area she could go to a good school and pay for everything on my little wage. I struggled for 2 years to get child benefit and now they give me 10 pound a week I pay for literally everything else with no help. Recently my sister has gone through a rebellion kind of stage and has wasted hundreds of my money and maxed out my credit card (which I only had to get to help get her things and get a new flat etc). So now I have nothing. I have no one to help. I still have bills that need to come out and food I need to buy for both of us. I don’t want to give up on my sister I hope she changes I don’t want to kick her out as she doesn’t have any other family just me, my mum isnt around as she is ill and doesn’t think tia is hers for some reason. Please help any way you can. Please help me.

My oldest child will be graduating High School in a few months and that expense has been tough but is required for him to be able to walk and have that experience, not to mention he is planning on going to school soon after to become a Software Developer and I will be helping with that expense as well.

I do not get support from the father any longer as he figured out if he is not working child support will not be taken out.

Anything you can do to help would be appreciated in more ways than you think.
I am a full time single parent and I have 3 girls. My first I gave up 30 years ago – we have recently met again for the first time in December. My second is almost 20 – beginning life on her own and my third has just turned 10 – still home with me.
My childhood was filled with extreme instability, abuse and domestic violence and by 12 I was on the streets and in and out of government care. I left the system at 15 when I graduated to be with a 28 year old man…
I gave my first daughter up for private adoption when I was 18 but after therapy and years of a brand new life, I got pregnant with my ex-husband. Together we ran successful restaurants and a real estate business in the Caribbean. It all seemed pretty magical.
A year after my daughter was born, very suddenly, the control and violence began. In a foreign country and under full control of my work and travel papers, employment etc – I couldn’t leave with my daughter – so I stayed. For 3 years I endured a relationship and a life that seems untenable to me now.
When I finally left for good, I started again from nothing. I pushed forward and tried to regain my footing. 5 years later and after a lot of hard work through symptoms that had begun to affect my life.
I had a well earned and carefree weekend for my 37th birthday. I got pregnant for the last time and the father eventually declined to participate.
Here’s where I will try to shorten my story a little:
Feb 2008 – my daughter is born 14 weeks early and will spend 6 weeks in hospital and will come home at just a tiny, fighting, 4lb 2oz.
March 2008 – I am readmitted to hospital after a staph infection sets into my c-section. A 3rd world hospital – alone. It goes badly but in April we both make it out alive. I take my daughter home to a small island in the middle of the ocean.
June 2008 – I get a new job that changes everything as the baby settles and starts to grow.
The father of my baby also suddenly returns. To greet me he reaches down and casually picks up a large conch shell. When I ask him to leave the property he smashes the side of my face with it.
I can feel the flash deep inside my brain. Not taking into account all the shaking, shoving, strangling and even a deliberate poisoning, this is the 5th serious brain event in ten years. This does not count my extreme childhood. Nor does it count the 4 major assaults I will live through in the next 6 months.
He will stalk us – attacking me at random, vandalizing the house in the middle of the night, stealing my things – once even stealing my baby from the babysitter.
Dec 26 2008 – when he attacks my face with a broken bottle in the middle of a large crowd. No one else tried to stop him.
February 2009 – I am unable to prosecute as my status puts us in jeopardy. After 3 months in hiding, I am finally able to get the paperwork to leave the country with my baby and my 2 suitcases. I leave my second daughter behind with her father to “finish the school year” and “let me set up.” He has refused to sign the travel letter for her to come.
July 2009 – My ex husband informs me that he is seeking full custody and will not allow visitation until it is settled.
April 2010 – The Supreme court grants my divorce and begins hearings on my custody case. Though we have skyped nightly for hours – it is the first time I hold my girl in over a year. She will not come home for another 5.
Sept 2010 – I am granted full rights care, custody and control of my daughter and I bring her home. I do not have enough money left to pursue the countersuit of frivolous prosecution, child support or damages and defamation and thus lose the chance to regain any of my expenses. Any savings and all the goodwill I had left are now completely gone. Court Costs – 80,000$ +
Sept 2010 – June 2012 – My daughters return is difficult. She has a mental breakdown. She does counselling through the services we can find. Through this and returning to her work with horses she manages to settle well enough.
April 2013 – Health issues that have been chronic finally come to a head. For the next 4 years I am in and out of ambulances and ER’s (I cannot get a family doctor here) with chronic symptoms I have listed for you below.
May 2013 – We are homeless for the first time as I struggle and can’t work regularly. We live for 5 months in a trailer on a friends farm. When I apply for welfare I am told that without an address I am not eligible.
November 2013 – Life looks up when a friend offers her house until it sells. We will have an address!
Dec 2013 – After a month of cleaning and painting we move in for Christmas. My application for welfare is denied as I tell them that i have freelanced work here and there to survive and that I am staying in the house for free. Without the “proof” this makes me ineligible.
January 8 2014 – We have a house fire and lose all of our things.
We stay with friends over the winter but unable to rally find ourselves homeless again for the summer of 2014 when I make a barn into our new space. We are now chest deep in and for one night I consider suicide.
Finally able to land a small apartment in February 2015 my battle with the system finally can begin on some solid ground but this is where my steam is finally running out.
April 2017 – After on and off work and on and off welfare acceptance I must leave my apartment after my payments cease due to “lost paperwork”. For 5 months we once again count on friends and the meager work I can find and do.
October 2017 – Welfare reestablishes my money and we gratefully stop in our new place.
I am asking for some help today for several reasons:
Firstly: We all need counselling. I have done a lot since my return and believe in investing in healing. Realistically though, three people in counselling – even on a sliding scale – is not possible for us right now even though I know it’s necessary for our success. We need to do this to finally move free of these hardships and can’t wait on waiting lists forever.
Secondly: My health issues need a focused and serious attack and hinder our recovery the most. After suffering for over 15 years, I have finally reached a potential diagnosis last week of POTS and Dysautonomia. Although incurable this finally offers me some hope of stopping the decline in functions and some remedies for the symptoms
Some of my daily symptoms include:
Light sensitivity -Double or bouncy vision – Tinnitus & Sinus Pain – Neck and Spinal Issues – Cognitive/Concentration issues – Elevated heart rates with activity – Short term memory Loss – Sleep disturbances – Mood disturbances – Anxiety/Panic Attacks – Fatigue – Nausea – Cranial and facial pain to name some. – all aggravated by stress, cars, etc
My teeth on the right side of my mouth were also smashed during an attack and are now broken down to the nubs in the back. Unable to even consider putting any money on my teeth even for a clean, I now need major dental work.
The piling up of thing upon thing has started to really weigh me down. I am spirited but find this difficult even for me to reach for these days. Just to finish replacing all the documents lost in the fire years ago would still take another 500$….
I am finally on welfare and live in a 1 bedroom with my last babe. I recieve just over 600$ month and about 600$ a month in other govt support. This will not be for long. I could receive an extra 300$ if I could get the paperwork in order through the doctors for at least temporary disability but this will never get us out of this hole no matter how hard I climb at it.
In desperation I have forced myself back to work over and over but it’s never enough to move us up a notch and I always end up very sick again. I am an adaptable and hardworking woman and I want to be productive. I have been aiming to open a small at-home/online business joining artists and the 3d world to make marketable items. I have several artists and clients in line already. My web page is ready to launch and a good daughter got me my first printer for Christmas. I just need retraining.
I have also written a book about my life and want to publish this year. I hope to use my experiences to bring the issue of brain injury and its impact on “just leaving” and on recovering from domestic violence. After trying to complete it over the past 3 years as I have navigated my own healing.
It’s called Following Shiny.
I am grateful for the incredible array of experiences in my life and for the people that have come along in our new life to help us through. One of the chapters is called “Bench People”. It’s in honour of those people that I could have never foreseen but who with such serendipity appeared and with their grace, changed everything.
I guess I am hoping for one of them now.
I am grateful for you listening to my complicated story and for any help you feel you can offer us as we work our way back to a new zero.
Married 2 years! Met 11-15-14 & married 1-15_16. Husband cheated half a year (6 months exactly) out of that.
I’ve lived in SC my whole life until I met, married and moved away with my husband. Thought it was one of those fairytales. Wrong!! We bought a new home together Nov. 2016. Keep in mind the children are mine from a previous relationship that lasted a long time until he started to beat on me. Anyway, my husband gets a new job and we all pack and move to GA. I left everything I’ve ever known. Even all my family. He even left his son, which he doesn’t seem to mind anyway. (Red flag).
Back up some….I was living in my own place when we met at work and since we both worked graveyard shift. ..he suggested I move in as I was paying for a place I rarely stayed. My parents kept my kids while I worked 6pm to 7am (yes, serious). Took them to school, slept, rinse and repeat. So I move in with him . Two months in and I was switched to day shift. Husband is now excited that he will have a family at home. He wasn’t my husband just yet though, BTW. We did move fast but it seemed perfect.
Ok so back to GA….I had to get rid of everything I owned pretty much as he had a nice place already established and my stuff was a single mom’s “junk”.
So now we have lived in GA for 2 years…in the new house a year and a half…plus he let me get 2 dogs. Not a day goes by that I’m not punished for that. I finally got my doctors going again with medication for PTSD (from being beaten and raped as a young teen and adult). Spine dr and all. Thank goodness.
But now I have to leave again. He let me be a homemaker. Not afraid to work but my children will need school clothes and new supplies….here they use what the school provides and wear uniforms. Much cheaper honestly . I’ll have to be removed from his insurance as well as my children (health). Change of DL again. Pay for a month or two for my vehical (in his name but says if I pay, I can keep it) . Nothing fancy, just a Nissan Rogue. And most important …..find us a place to live that is safe and stable. If I had enough money to get started it would be great. My grandmother just passed away and my aunt somehow figured a way to hide the money in bonds or something so the children and grandchildren get nothing like she wanted. Can’t addord a lawyer either. Forget that completely …she won that fight.
But what do I do?? I’m stuck with someome that puts me down and treats my children like dogs and my dogs like s**t . He said we can stay until my birthday and the children’s last day of school which is arpund May 28th. I’ve never tried these things. I DON’T want to try a common one and his family see it and really cause me trouble. Either way, if I get no help….I at least hope someome reads my story!!
Hello, I am a single mother of two I have a 21 month old and a 6 month old. Recently, I have been having hardship with finances.
I am 3 months behind on rent. My rent is 475 a month and it’s just my boys and I. I work 40 hours a week and pick up as much shifts as I can but recently I have been laid off of my job. I have had alot of personal issues in life that have brought me downhill very badly. I love my children and will so everything for them. I am trying my hardest with life right now but it seems that as soon as I feel I can let my guard down life kicks me back times 10.
I provide for my children 100% I do not collect welfare off of them. The only thing I collect is food stamps to help their bellies be full at night, I pay for rent, diapers, utilities, vehicle payments, every thing.
We are about to lose our apartment and our vehicle, the power is getting shut off very soon duento the child’s father leaving and leaving a unpaid bill of 400+ to me. It’s a huge struggle. I have had to drop out of college after a year of completion to full apply myself to the life struggles.
Please can anyone, ANYONE help my children and I God bless you.
Last night I found myself on my needs searching this house for loose coins. My car was on empty and I am up to my air in debt. My mortgage along with other personal loans have gotten me in a stew. My son could not put of going to college any longer, so I am struggling to pay that on a plan. I started and online business but for months was not getting any business simply because I didn’t have the capital to properly advertise and promote the store, which was primarily a drop ship business which I thought was perfect as I did not have to purchase inventory. That business is closed and a few hundred dollars to keep the site running went down the drain. I hope to relaunch soon with the help of good people out there. But for right now I need to take care of immediate needs, like gas for my vehicle and food. I am already behind on my son’s tuition and praying they dont put him out. I am not sure I will be able to get into work this week as my car is screaming empty. And I don’t have much friends that I can ask for help. Please help me out. I will be very grateful to a kind and generous person who has never met me to extend your heart to me. Much love and blessings.
I’m writting this in hopes that there is some good left in this world. I am a single mom of 4. My 3 eldest are from one dad and my baby girl is from another. Let me start by saying thanks for even reading this post. I have been a single mom for many years (oldest is 9) but 4 years ago I met someone who I thought was the one. We moved in and talked about marriage and he was great with my kids. We talked about having one more kid and we did. My baby who is now 2, but slowly but surely things started to fall apart. He started drinking more heavily. I tried to brush it off and pretend it was ok but I was honestly miserable. Eventually one night he didn’t come home and I knew I had to end things. With a sad heart I broke up with him. He found someone new within 2 weeks and left me and my kids(including his then 1 year old) in the dust. However things for me just got worse. Once he moved out it forced me to pay the rent all alone. Although I’ve managed it’s very difficult because of the bay area rent prices. I’m currently working full time as a preschool teacher and I go to school part time. I will be graduating with my AA-T this may and I couldn’t be happier with how far I’ve come in life even against all the odds I’ve faced. Now on to the bad part. My car recently broke down and isn’t repairable it need a new engine and isn’t worth getting fixed. I’m asking for any donations to help me buy a new one. I don’t even care the model or year just as long as it gets me to work and school and my kids to school on a daily basis. Anything will help. My pay pal link is PayPal.me/debcarfund. Thanks for reading.
Hi everyone. I’m Kiya, a 39 yr. old single mother of two boys. Up until a month ago I was a happy stay at home mom, wife and caregiver to my terminally ill husband. I assume the stress of facing fatality, no longer being able to support his family, total lifestyle change and who knows what else he was battling in his head I can’t even fathom was too much for him. He left unexpectedly which have caused a chain of events that have lead me here. With a recent eviction, a mound of debt, one child being home schooled and the other now traveling out of district to school my biggest obstacle has been Transportation. A car is the stepping stone i need to begin to get my life back in order and restore some stability and consistency into my boys lives. I’ve found a used car in good condition but every dime I’ve gotten of late has gone to feeding them, gas in someone else’s tank and what ever is left over goes to contributing to my friends utility bills. I ask for your assistance in getting this car and helping me get my life back to normal. I thank everyone for anything given even if all you can spare is a prayer. Thanks and stay blessed.
Being a mother has become obvious to me.
After having already lost a baby and divorced, I decided to give myself a chance as a single mother, towards an appropriate technique of artificial insemination.
It took me three years of thinking but I am now ready and wish to prevent the future of my child to fully develop.
I am driven by my projects and this wonderful human adventure I would like to concretize. You step in here to allow us to live in a new nest. Our future place will be acquired from auction thanks to the sales made by the High Court in Lille, France.
I believe I can reach this dream thanks to you.
Your donations will help me writing this new page of my life. My priority being the development and stability of my future baby, I go forward pushed by positive thoughts, and only keeping in mind your huge generosity.
My happiness as an extraordinary mother depends on my faith and actions.
That is why I call for donations to support me in this project of acquisition
With a lot of hope, thank you.
Do not hesitate to contact me by mail: email@example.com.
PS: there is 1 probability out of 4 that I have twins. Wish me luck J
- All blood tests, complementary examinations and first contact with the clinic have been carried out between December 4th, 2017 and February , 2018. All the analysis are ok :)
- Artificial insemination scheduled for February 22td, 2018
- First places’ visits scheduled in March-April
- Purchase of place in May-June (if all goes well)
I am a single mother of three boys, and I live in a small town about an hour outside of Albuquerque. I have had some incredibly bad luck the last 6 months and have fallen behind on my car payment. In September, my dad suffered a severe heart attack (100% blockage of his main artery! The doctor said it’s a miracle that my dad walked into the ER, as most with a blockage that severe usually come in in body bags.) I had to miss 2 weeks of work to take care of him, as he was not supposed to do much himself. Once I got behind one payment, ($454) it has been impossible to catch up. I have made payments that don’t seem to be getting me anywhere. This December I got the flu and nearly died. I spent two weeks in the hospital battling secondary bacterial pneumonia. I was extremely weak and physically exhausted for another week.
I am so grateful to be alive and have the blessings I have. But if I lose my car then I will lose my job, and there is no public transportation available in my small town. I need to catch up in order to be able to provide for my boys. Please find it in your heart to help me. I will do anything to repay your assistance. Once I get back on my feet I can repay you over time. Please help me. Anything you can donate would be very appreciated.
Thank you for reading. Have a blessed day.

Thank you so much.
I’m a single mom and have been struggling for quite some time now. I have two boys who are aged 3 and 7 and the past year has been absolute hell. I lost my job and currently am suffering from really bad depression. I lost my father 5 years ago whom I loved dearly and my life hasn’t quite been the same ever since. My boyfriend and I just recently broke up and he was the one who has been helping us out. All I have right now is foodstamps (which has ran out already for the month) were in desperate need of food! ( only have canned goods from food bank ) and when I see a family member which is once in a blue, they’ll give me like $20. Idk how I’m going to pay my car insurance this month which is $145, phone, cable wifi $229, electricity $106 and rent $1,650. Here’s the icing on the cake my car crapped out last night and I need a car, was looking on Craigslist and found one I LOVED for $8,500. If everyone can contribute it’ll help. Whatever you can honestly.. $5, $10, $15, $20. Anything helps trust me and we’ll be very great full. Thanks in advance <3 p.s its my little ones 4th birthday in a weeks and I would love to do something special for him. He loves chunky cheese!

Hello world my name is Rachel I am 35 a single mother of a 14 year old. I arrived across this website when looking for ways to live a fuller life, to bring more joy and happiness to our lives. I have never been the kind of person to ask for help or money for that matter. I’m actually quite uncomfortable doing so. I do work hard. I also suffer from mental health and addiction, anxiety, depression. I say this because I have a 14 yr old who has lived through so much. Because of the choices I made effect her and it breaks my heart. I have been clean for over 3 years. I am really proud of how far I’ve come, but it has set me back in every aspect. I understand it is my fault and I am doing everything I can to make matters right again. My daughter has a tic disorder that is becoming worse, pulls out her hair, and has no friends at school. I would like to ask for whatever amount of money anyone can spare and with that I have been researching rehabs that help family’s with mental illness of all types. Places that are very expensive one I am really interested in is Turn About Ranch. I don’t want my daughter going through life with pain and hurt. She is an amazing person and if I don’t generate some sort of help now it will be too late, as she is forming into a young adult. If I could afford it myself I wouldn’t be on here asking for a helping hand. My daughter also gets made fun of in regards to her ears, so bad I found her trying to glue her ears back so they don’t stick out so much. I didn’t know what to say except your ears are beautiful and they are a part of what makes you, you!! She is constantly looking in the mirror. I try distracting her by coming up with activities we can perform together, but it doesn’t help much. I told her if it bothers you we can talk to a doc. I know being grateful for what you have is the best way to look at it, and she does. She handles it quite well, but it is something to consider if it gets any worse. Thanks for reading this. And I dont feel comfortable posting a pic of my daughter so its a pic of me instead ..
Hello, my story is long so I won’t draw it out. I just recently moved to Louisiana after losing my house, me and my two kids have had a serious of unfortunate events. Their father and me were together for 7 years and we were of course amazing and happy, but his mother died Christmas 2016. He went into a spiral of despair and started using drugs, even after months of therapy (even marriage therapy) he still couldn’t get better and became a hoarder and stole computers. My tires got slashed I lost daycare and tried to work with him. He didn’t want to get better. So here we are miles away from Arizona in Louisiana living with my mother. I’ve never met the woman but she heard about our problems and so we all squished into a trailer in the middle of the woods. My car is having problems and I need to get the stabalitrak fixed and need an oil change after the driving here. I don’t have a job yet but it’s hard when you don’t have a car in the middle of the sticks. My mom doesn’t drive and my brothers are to Young to. I found a phlebotomy certificate program here for 1,150 and was told my car would be about 800 after I pay for a diagnostic to find the specific problem with it. I already have a job lined up when I get the certificate from my mom’s friend here and that’ll help me get on my feet. Thank you for reading and have a blessed week
I am the proud mother of the most handsome clever and vibrant 5year old boy. I raise my son alone. I provide for him single handedly through all aspects of life including financially. I don’t see this as being anything special and I don’t wished to be praised for it it’s the responsibility we take on as mothers before our baby even arrives. Even though, I wasn’t prepared for the break up with my sons dad. Life became a constant struggle. I suffered with severe depression and anxiety along with regular panic attacks. And then having this beautiful bundle of joy that you love so much and really want to enjoy mixed my head right up. It’s hard having a young child to raise alone and deal with your own demons because nobody really understands around you. My life was all lows for around 2years. I have no doubt it would have effected zayne especially if I carried on. So I got my self up moved house, new friends, a new job even new hair! And started living for the now making every Minuit with my son count making perfect memories. I told myself I will never never let my son see me down or crying again and make everyday positive for him. Last year I started a nursing degree. I want to become a mental health nurse because of my personal experience. The mental health nurses were amazing. They are really important but there’s still not enough trained mental health nurses in the country! Only now I’ve felt mentally strong enough to pursue my career dream. I still work part time in a betting shop and obviously look after my main priority 24/7.
My problem is, like everyone knows students don’t have money. I can only fit in 16 hours a week at work because of child care ect.. My bank account is still feeling the effects of Christmas. I try and live within our means. I also have to fill a void for what his dad doesn’t provide. Unfortunately I don’t have the money to cover all our bills this month. Some are doubled after missing payment over Christmas. I would really appreciate the help so I can help myself get back on my feet. I really want to Finish my degree. It’ll make a huge difference in my family life as well as many others that I will work with. I’m just so stuck with money.The only other option I see is dropping out and putting my nursing dreams on hold. Going back to working more hours in a job I don’t enjoy or get any satisfaction from as still barley making ends meet. I have a private landlord that will serve me an eviction notice if I don’t have payment in full in February. Along with my other utility bills. Thank you for reading my story and thank you so much for helping x
The last three years has been very rough. My husband is determined to have me support myself and the kids and I am worn out thin from working hard and trying to make ends meet. I need help. I want to be able to pay off some student loan debt and get back to teaching like I love. My heart is with kids but right now I can’t afford to be there if I need to pay off debt and raise my own two children. I am trying everything I can to save my marriage as well and this is my last chance. Please help me save my marriage for my kids and myself and get me out of debt. I do not live an extravagant lifestyle. I look for things in my home to sell and my kids know that if there is anything I can sell I will just to continue to make ends meet the best that I can. I need a total of $100,000 but any donation is amazing at this time. This will pay off my student loan for college and will help me provide for my two kids both education and much needed childcare while I continue to work.
I am a 45 year old single mother of one child, and I am in financial need. Here’s my story …
I have been trying to get approved for Disability benefits since 2012 regarding the following:
My father (my hero) passed away very horribly in 2010 from brain cancer. It nearly destroyed me emotionally. However, 2 years later the suppressed flood of emotions and devastation came to the surface and I had to go on an extended leave from work to get established with a counselor and psychiatrist. At that time, I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder; Major Depression; Panic/Anxiety Disorder; PTSD; Social Phobia; Insomnia, OCD. I am still grieving and in treatment.
Recently, my diagnosis was changed by my new counselor as having Agoraphobia with Major Depression Disorder & Anxiety/Panic Disorder
Also, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2008 as a direct result of the traumatic emergency C-section I endured after pushing for 2 hours during childbirth. There were many complications and I am still in the care of a pain management specialist that I see once a month for relief. The Fibromyalgia gets worse with stress, climate changes, cold weather, and over-exertion. Whenever I have a bad day emotionally … I have a bad day physically. It goes hand in hand.
During the time I was out of work on leave I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I had a Lumpectomy with 37 radiation treatments. Three months later, I had a procedure on my bladder for Interstitial Cystitis, and three more months later I had a total Hysterectomy. The day before I was scheduled to return to work, my employer called and let me go due to not having a position available for me anymore.
Then, in 2015 I was diagnosed a second time with the same type of Breast Cancer in the same breast. I had a double mastectomy with a latissimus dorsi flap (removal of one of the 5 muscles in the back), and was in reconstructive surgeries every 3 months for over a year. I am in remission again though!
My Disability case was recently denied by the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) on June 14th on the basis that there was not enough medical documentation to support my claim. My attorney released me as a client saying there was nothing else he could do to help me at that point, and nearly 5 years of much needed back pay was just gone.
But, I’m not a quitter! I’ve come so far and still have some fight in me … I am tired, but not giving up just yet. That’s not an option for my child!
Recently, I found a Disability Advocate that works directly through the Social Security Administration, and she advised my best option was to re-submit a new application and start ALL … OVER … AGAIN. So, I officially submitted my new application on Thursday, September 7th and it will be at least another 3 years before I can go before an ALJ Judge again to prayerfully get approved this time.
However, during these next 3 years I am not able to make ends meet anymore, and I am scared. I have my daughter to raise and do not want to fail her.
My doctors tried to help me in the past, but they didn’t know how to document my pain and mental health accurately enough to convince an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) that I cannot work … even though I’ve been unemployed since October 2012 due to my health, and living solely off $700/month Child Support for me and my only child as a single mother. This time all of my doctors have written letters to Disability on my behalf stating why they feel I am unable to hold gainful employment and request that I receive Disability benefits. I also have a new counselor that is on board with my case as well. Going forward I will be certain my medical notes are accurate and detailed after each visit.
I made it through the first few years by receiving STD & LTD through my former employer and ultimately a severance package once I lost my job due to my health. Then, I had to cash in my 401-K Retirement Funds, IRA Savings, all of my personal savings and then refinanced my home. That money is now gone and I am not making ends meet … not without using a credit card, and I do not do credit! I have an excellent credit score of 790+ but now have a current balance of $5,000 on this one card and I barely can make the minimum payment due each month.
I also got a personal loan from my mother so I could send my child to Sylvan Learning Institute 2 years ago to help her with homework and reading comprehension. She went there 2 days a week for one year, and it did absolute wonders for her! But, not without a heavy price of $3,000! It’s important to me that my mother gets every red cent returned to her because I am determined to repay her for the generosity she gave to my child.
My medications are limited in their effectiveness and are constantly changing due to unpleasant side effects. The meds help me at some level but not when faced in stressful, uncomfortable situations, changes or environments, such as being in a public place with a crowd of people around and fearing of embarrassing myself or being noticed at all by anyone, or being in a workplace/family/or friend confrontation of any negative type. Or, not being able to understand simple instructions on the job or in front of others. I shut down from anxiety when faced with any criticism, unsatisfactory reviews, deadlines, multiple tasks, distractions while working, inability to understand instruction, or when expected to engage in small talk with others. I become flustered, anxious, uncomfortable, and emotional regarding these situations.
The Fibromyalgia pain prevents me from standing for short periods of time, as well as sitting for short periods of time. These positions cause pain in my back/knees/legs/and feet, and my only relief consists of a narcotic pain killer, a muscle relaxer, and rest. I am also forced to take several naps throughout the day and the Fibromyalgia “Fog” causes difficulty concentrating and short term memory loss.
My mental disorders are sporadic in severity and crippling when active. I withdrawal from the world and never leave my house until it passes (UNLESS it concerns my child … I do whatever it takes to give a good life no matter how much it causes me pain).
I don’t want to be sick anymore. I long for the day that I am healed from my Fibromyalgia chronic pain and headaches, as well as my recently diagnosed Agoraphobia with Major Depression Disorder & Anxiety/Panic Disorder.
Lastly, I owe $45,400.03 on my home. My mortgage is $343.02 a month and I have to use exactly ½ of my monthly Child Support ($350) to cover it. I bought my home by myself at 22 years old and have lived here ever since … for 21 years. It was an older home when I bought it, and I have not been able to provide any upgrades or necessary maintenance on it even when I did work full-time.
Details about my debt …
$12,911.55 – Credit Card Balance as of 02/02/2018
$3,000 – Loan to my mother
$45,400.03 – Payoff Mortgage
My goals are:
1) To not lose my house in Foreclosure
2) To not have to file Bankruptcy
5) Become DEBT FREE!!!!Thank you for taking the time to hear my story. I sincerely and graciously ask for financial assistance and my heart truly thanks you for any amount donated to help me stay above the water while pursuing Disability benefits.
I attach a description of my day to day life “Living with Pain” in hopes of painting a clearer picture.

Living with Pain
**Please note that the continuous use of the word “sick” relates to my physical pain and mental confusion from Fibromyalgia and/or my mental disorders of Agoraphobia with Major Depression Disorder & Anxiety/Panic Disorder**
I want to work.
When I work I get sick.
If I don’t work my life gets harder and I get stressed.
When I’m stressed I get sick.
I don’t have any money to pay others to help me with chores and house/yard maintenance.
I’m sick all the time and can’t work to provide the help I need.
I want to exercise more than anything.
When I attempt to exercise I become stressed from chronic pain.
Pain and stress makes me sick.
When I don’t exercise I get weaker and more exhausted.
I get sick again.
I want to do the things I enjoy.
When I make an effort I get exhausted and my pain intensifies.
The pain and exhaustion makes me sick.
When I don’t do the things I enjoy, I get depressed and even more exhausted.
Depression makes me sick.
I need help with some chores and yard/house maintenance. But, I’m nervous to ask for help too often so not to become a burden. My family are doing all they can for me, but it’s not enough.
This is very stressful and frustrating … and it makes me sick.
When life gets too hard, scary, intimidating, hurried, or sad the stress becomes an all-encompassing feat of sheer willpower …
And then the cycle starts all over again with each new day.

I am a single Mother of 2. I have a 4 year old boy & a two year old little girl. I am currently over $6,000 behind on my mortgage, Hurricane Irma has completely changed things around for the worse for My children & I. I cannot imagine my children not having a stable home to be in when school starts. Struggling to provide for my family is the hardest thing I have ever had to go through, and asking for help is even harder but I have to look past my pride for my children’s sake so I can save our home, and keep the electric and water on the next few struggling months until I can get caught up and interest can stop eating me up and getting me nowhere! God Bless you all!
Hi. I’m a single mother, and I am really struggling to pay the bills and cover all my home expenses. I’ve worked hard over the years to be able to provide a nice life for us, and I have been able to do that for the most part. I worked hard to earn a degree so that I can do more for us. A few months ago, we moved to a different state and town with better opportunities, but I have not been obtain a lucrative job that pays enough to cover all our expenses. I feel that time we’ll get back on our feet and I’ll find a good job but until then I need help! I’m way behind in my bills, rent and other expenses are looming and I have only $65 in my bank account. I’m scared on what to do so I’d appreciate any donation. My goal is $8,000 as I think that can get us through the next two months. Thank you!

I am the mother to a beautiful little girl who has just turned 1, and I am so grateful for the little that we have, but I have a burning desire to give her the world and it breaks my heart that I am not in a position financially to give her the life she deserves. It has been an incredibly hard year for us both. I will readily admit that I have made mistakes in the past and before I found out I was pregnant
I was not living a life I could be proud of, and I trusted the wrong person and now find myself a single mother. I wouldn’t change a thing because my daughter is the light in my life and she was worth every hardship ive faced. Since having my daughter
I knew I needed to better myself and set a good example, so I am now a full time student studying with the open university.
My dream is to run my own business from home and after months of putting in a lot of hard work in between studying and looking after my incredibly hyper little girl (she never sits still!) its become clear that I dont have the right skills to make this a success on my own.
I have come across a very highly reviewed online course which would give me the skill set I need to successfully launch my business, which would provide ongoing financial stability for my daughter and I, however the course is $2000 and saving that kind of money looks to be completely impossible without help.
I want it to be known that I told myself i wouldnt ask for money in order to make this work, but after being rejected for countless loans I thought I would at least give it a try! My dreams are worth losing a bit of dignity for! And i have always beleived that the majority of people are very kind, and if i was willing to help a stranger achieve their dreams then there must be others out there who would do the same for me! I have already put in so much hard work and im not afraid to do a lot more, so please help me to build a future for my little girl <3
Hi, thank you for taking the time to read my request. My name is Trisha. I am a 33 year old widow, and mother to two amazing little girls. Faye is 9 and Lilly is 7. We lost my husband almost 2 years ago after a 3 year long battle with ALS. I was his full time caregiver, therefore I could not work. Four short months later I suddenly lost my mom to a heart attack. She was my rock, she lived with me for 6 months helping me care for Michael and my girls. So not only did my girls witness their fathers demise on a daily basis, they were there when my mother had her heart attack. They saw everything, from us giving her CPR to the paramedics working on her. They are traumatized to say the least. I’m requesting money from you because I feel like we need a fresh start. I love the house I live in but the rent is astronomical! Also my landlord is putting the house up for sale very soon. He wants to sell it for close to $270k. I was approved for a mortgage but only for $175k. Any decent House is my area is at least $240k. I also want to go back to school. In the last i have always had a position in medical office management. After everything we have been through I now realize that life is to short to not do what makes you happy. I have decided I want to go back to school to take esthetician courses. I want my girls to be proud of me, I want them to know that even though we weee dealt a horrible hand in life, that doesn’t define us. We can still be happy and successful. Please consider donating funds to my daughters and I so we have have a fresh start, a new lease on life. Thank you for your time
My mom is amazing. My dad left us when I was 11, and she went from being a housewife to a working full time single mother overnight. She went to college after working all day and achieve her Bachelor’s Degree but couldn’t pay for a final licensing class to complete her teacher certification because she was not able to afford it. Still, she kept working and invested in me. Now, I am 25 and just graduated from college and my mom is still working and helping me until we can both afford our own place. My mom’s dream is to go back to school for her Masters in Theology,but she has a hold on her transcripts due to the license class and while she is paying it off in monthly increments, it will take her over 5 years to do. That on top of student loan payments and taxes. She has all but given up on this dream, but she deserves this. She put me first and didn’t date for the last 14 years because she wanted to make sure I was safe and got what I needed. Now, I want to try and help her. This is just a shot in the dark, but a friend recommended seeing if anyone would be led to help her pay off the college bill so she could get started on her dream. She doesn’t know about this as I don’t want to disappoint her. She does not like to ask for help and she works hard. Anything would help and it would be a blessing to woman who has blessed me my entire life. Thank you.
Please help!! My name is Tashauna Ray, I am a 36-year-old single mother of 8-year-old twin girls. I was laid off back in April of 2016 from my five-year position as a Laboratory Technician in a medical laboratory located in Newington, CT. After my severance and unemployment pay was exhausted I started to panic because I had yet to find gainful employment and the bills were starting to pile up. I was able to stay afloat for some time thanks to the support of my family and friends. Unfortunately, at this time I still have not been able to find suitable work. Because of a few mental health issues (ADHD; bipolar disorder), it is very difficult for me to find employment that is not only accommodating but also offers a flexible schedule.
Back in November of last year, I started homeschooling my daughters. This was not an easy decision to come by and it wasn’t something I just decided to do on a whim. It all came down to my children safety and well being. My daughters were going to Benjamin Franklin Elementary School since August of 2013, as early as the second day of school there were problems. I was waiting outside for my daughters to be dismissed and one of the girls comes out with her teacher and I get her and wait; my other daughter’s teacher comes out with all of the other kids and I ask her “Where’s my daughter?” so she kind of looks around and says. “I don’t know, she was right behind me.” And yells out “Has anyone seen Raya?” she waits gets no reply, and continues dismissing the other kids. So, my mother who was waiting with me goes into the school to find her, so I wait outside with my other daughter thinking ok they’ll be out in a second, and about 2 to 3 minutes go by and I start to get worried. I go to school to see what’s going on and see my mom freaking out because they told her that they couldn’t find her. No parent ever wants to hear that especially not on the second day of kindergarten! I go into mommy meltdown mode recalling every Lifetime movie about kidnapped children to mind, there are teachers running around on walkie-talkies looking for her and trying to think of where the heck she could be. Thankfully my mother decides to go and check every classroom and finally finds her hysterically crying in the classroom becauseshe was sent to wait with the children that take buses home. I scoop her up and hug her so tight and I can’t help thinking “What would have happened if she had gotten on that bus?” To add insult to injury her teacher comes walking in after the fact and goes, “Oh good you found her.” This woman is very fortunate that I am a Christian. I calmly asked her why she would send my child to get on the bus when I saw her note down the day before that she would be picked up every day. Again, she very nonchalantly says, “I wrote down a lot of things yesterday”. As if that was an acceptable excuse. I did address the issue with the principal the next day when my temper had cooled down, and I explained that I thought that the teacher handles the situation inappropriately and she was spoken to. Unfortunately, that was just the first of many issues in the school.
There were issues with bullying, kids were taking food out of their lunch boxes, one of them fell on the cement and had a huge knot on her forehead, she was never sent to the nurse and it was never reported it was ridiculous. There was this one little girl who was always stealing food from my daughter’s lunch box. Every time it happened I informed the principal the girl was talked to several times, she was moved away from my daughter and she would still walk right over and take her food. I requested a conference with her parents and I kept getting the runaround. Thankfully she moved out of the school district last year.
The final straw was when my daughter said that one of the little boys in her classroom was throwing a temper tantrum and all the children were instructed to huddle in the corner in the back of the room because he was throwing desks and chairs and one of the little girls was hit in the ear. And on another occasion, a little boy was heard saying that he was going to kill everyone and kill himself and that he had access to a gun in his home. This is what scared me the most because when the little boy said this, several children heard him say it and told the substitute teacher. So, when I went in for parent-teacher conferences I asked her real teacher if she had heard anything about it and she was shocked that she had not and said that she would speak to the principal immediately. A few days go by and I ask my daughter if the little boy was still in school and she said he was, so I emailed the teacher to ask what was going on, she let me know that they were investigating, and I told her that my concern was the safety of the other children. I know kids sometimes say things and don’t realize the severity of certain things, but it would’ve been more appropriate to remove the child from the school while the investigation was going on. Not only was I dealing with that, my other daughter was dealing with kids using vulgar language and talking nasty. And then one of the girls told her that one boy was telling people that they had had sex, this was the same little boy that had grabbed her privates and called her an a-hole in the first grade. So, I’ve been homeschooling them for two months now.
I’ve got my hands full. Currently, I don’t have enough money coming in to cover all my expenses My request right now is for my car payment. I’ve been falling way behind on I need help. Right now, the pay off balance is $4,028.66 and I’m behind $1,081.76. I’m making this request because like I said I have two little girls, I’m looking for employment, it’s just me and them, I wouldn’t ask if I wasn’t desperate. Please help us if you can.
Thank you in advance for your generosity
Even $1 goes a long way!
I will add an image when I get home in a couple hours.
My name is Denise and I have really messed up my life a bit with
getting a car the way I did. I need the car for work but, my credit was not great not bad
but not great after my separation. I didn’t have much other than my suitcase and a few hundred dollars when I left reasons
for that…I would like to keep private. I have built a life now and have an apt and my car and a bed so I am proud of that however..
over the years I have battled breast cancer alone and radiation and paid my rent and bills without assistance from anyone. I was better and decided that transit is just to much for work as I work different shifts including nights so I bought a hyundai car
a couple years ago and because my credit isn’t very good it is a high interest loan … in the end i will have paid 44,000 for a 2015 Hyundai Elantra. 233.00 bi-weekly.
Christmas came and went with no work I fell on ice Jan 8th in front of my building and hurt myself. Soft tissue only and within a week I was just fine but, was not able to work. I went to the building however it was not Sucessful …I went back to work yesterday and
by the end of Feb financially I will be just afloat but I do not have Feb Rent and I do not know if I will be able to get enough money together for my car payments and bills.
I would love to just be able to pay off the car not for what it is and
be able to pay my rent and bills. I do not like that I am doing this as there are so many other issues out there but, this is my issue and I just need a little boost if anyone is will to help with anything at all. It will be use wisely and what it is for! I will send proof as well if anyone wants the proof! I also have doctors not of when I slipped and fell!
Thank you so much for your giving assistance it is very appreciated.
I am a 31 year old single mother with two kids. I am here to ask for help purchasing a decent reliable vehicle. My story is very simple but, your donation would help not only me but my children and hopefully others one day as well.
I am a very driven individual who has unfortunately fallen on hard times. I lost my job as a Night Auditor at the beginning of October 2017. Since then things have spiraled downward for me and my situation. My vehicle decided to give up right before Christmas leaving me without any type of transportation of my own. I have had to ask so many friends and family members for help getting to anywhere I needed to go. I feel as if I am a burden upon these great people who have gone out of their way to help me get from point A to point B. I have no savings at all and struggle paying bills and supporting my children an myself. When I became a mother I decided that I had to do something so I chose to go back to college and follow my dreams. In May of 2016 I recieved my Associates of Arts in General Studies. I then started working towards my bachelors degree. When I am completely finished with my education I will have my Ph.d in Clinical Psychology with a minor in Gender Studies. I have a long way to go still but, I am a very determined individual. I want to be able to hopefully change the lives of the people I help as well as provide my amazing children a great life that they deserve.
Due to not having any transportation I am having to take time off from college this semester. This sets my progress back a little and has caused me much grief and unhappiness. I feel like I am failing my children and myself for not being able to help myself get through this situation. My friends and family would have helped as much as possible but, they are not always available which, would cause me to miss classes. Online classes are not available for the program I am in so taking this time was the only logical choice.
I am still unemployed and have been searching daily online and in my area for a job that will pay what I need to even survive and not lose everything. I have gone to my local Department of Human Services and been placed on SNAP benefits. I have taken every route I can possibly think of to help my family keep making it.
Being a single mother and full time college student is a hard job. Plus normally I would have a full time job as well added to the situation. It is very hard with all three but, I have two others to worry about and will do whatever to provide. I also look ahead and know it will not always be this way for my family. I feel like I am failing and I have debated even getting on this site due to not wanting to ask strangers for help. I was always told growing up that if you never ask the answer will always be NO. So I swallowed my pride and here I am. Hopefully I can move forward from this situation I am in very soon with the help from kind people helping me.
I desperately need a decent reliable vehicle to be able to seek employment, take care of my families needs, and get through the schooling I still have left to finish. I have decided that $10,000 is what I am seeking. If helped and given this money I will go and buy a good reliable vehicle that hopefully will last through the next five to 10 years till I am graduated and established enough to afford a brand new vehicle. I believe $10,000 will be enough to get something very reliable and decent to work for my plans.
I would greatly appreciate any donation. I hope here soon I am blessed with the ability to go back to our normal lives and finish my dreams. After I graduate I will definitely pay it forward and do something similar to help another individual who is having financial issues. Also with my career choice I will be able to help numerous people with their problems in life. To everyone who takes time to read my story and to all the people who decide to donate and help me get a vehicle. Thank You! You have no idea what kind of blessing this will be for me and my family. I will forever be grateful for your donations. Just know that you are all amazing and that this help will definitely be worth it when I finally finish college. Thank you all again from the bottom of my heart. My PayPal link is below for donations.
Hello, i’m a mother of 3 beautiful girls and i have been struggling financially most of my life especially these past years. I’m wondering if it’s possible to have help, i have found this email address of yours via google and hoping that this might be the answer to my prayers.
In 2009 i opened a second hand store in the basement of my house it was called Nat’sHelpingHand enr. a non profit organization. But then a year later i had to close it due to water damage and i had no insurance seeing it was considered a red zone. I would like to re open it because i love helping people who are in need.
Back in 2012 we lost our house. I had been working hard to pay for renovations and all, but then i decided it’s time for me to go back studying witch i did. So i rented the big house to and ex brother in law and moved closer to the City for town bus transportation seing i had no car. Few months past by then trouble started, the tennant of my house wasn’t paying any more and then decided to just take the house away from me seing that it was on an Indian reserve and he was also Indian. I dragged him to court and won, but no bailiff was allowed to go there and the police didn’t want to get involved. He threw all my furniture and important souvenirs to the road and i lost everything! It has been a nightmare for me and the girls ever since.
I’m now taking a course in web design because i have bad back issues and this job would be less hard on me and hopeful things will get better financially. My youngest daughter would like me to buy a new home, but the banks refuse to lend me and i had co-signed a loan a few years back for the father of my kids witch he didn’t pay after i left him. He went bankruptcy with out telling me. Anyways I would love to make my kids happy and buy a home, i just need an angel to help me on this. I have always helped others the best way i could, i think it’s my turn now to be helped. Any amount would be appreciated once i have enough money i will buy a house and re-open Nat’sHelpingHand and start helping people in need again. Me and my girls would be forever grateful. I do believe in angels and in God and i think what your doing is such a great act from the heart. God bless you and your loved one’s, looking forward to your support, thank you!

I don’t really know how to do this but I’ll start by telling you what’s going on. So I need any kind of help. Recently I was evicted from my apartment for being late a couple days on my rent right before Christmas. I got a new place but in a smaller town where it was cheaper. I’m switching jobs and the new job is taking forever to start my orientation. I have a son and let’s just say he didn’t have the best Christmas or birthday last Friday because I’m financially struggling. On top of old bills from the old house I also have the new ones and I still owe my landlord a deposit. I’ve been taking out personal loans just to try to stay afloat until my job starts but that money went quick and I can’t find another because my credit is bad and I owe on the ones I took out. So now I am overdrawn 600 in my bank just from things being taken out and fees for being overdrawn. I’ve tried selling some of my stuff and asking family or trying to find odd jobs. I just really need a miracle because I’m stressed to the max and already have bad anxiety. What’s worse is I don’t even have money for food or to change oil in my car and I feel like a failure to my son and it kills me. Don’t get me wrong he eats but it’s microwave things for now. Any help would be greatly and truly appreciated!!
Hi, my daughter and I are in desperate need of some help to pay our bills. I’m able to find a job at the present time and I promise, I’ve been putting anywhere from 50 plus applications in a day. I’m so stressed out. My husband in pic is no longer in our lives due a motorcycle accident he had and my son is in college and isn’t working either. My daughter is 13 and ever since her dad died I’ve always done all I can to keep us afloat. I’ve never been able to not find a job quickly but lately it’s been hard and most of the reason I’m having no luck is my mouth. All my teeth have broken off except 3 in my lower jaw up front due heredity. I can’t afford to get what’s left pulled and get false ones for now. And I can understand it’s a scary site to see me smile and due to infections in my mouth it’s made me sick a lot! And I have cancer which doesn’t help either I can’t get my meds right now or see a doctor regularly because I have no money. We just finally got into home after being homeless living a car for 3 years and now I have no job and we are looking to loosing everything again( not like we have much) and living in our car again if things don’t change soon!! Please help us I’m not trying to be greedy by no means and when I find a job I promise to pay you back. If you can help us with $5000 or less anything will help because our water is about to be cut off soon and then it will be like a boulder running out of control destroying everything in its way. And I know what happens when it does and I hate to put us through this again. Thank you for your time and God Bless you.
I never thought at my age that I would be in this situation. No matter what choices I make that I think are right, only turn out to be wrong. All I want in life is to get ahead. Further my education and teach my kids that it’s possible. After losing a baby, choosing adoption for 3 of my children, surgeries and life blocks, I’ve still ended up in poverty. I attended medical school and graduated, however, with all the negative road blocks in my life, I haven’t succeeded. After bad relationships that led to bad credit, I can’t get any form of credit. All I want to do is be successful. With past due student loans, a broke down car and not two pennies to pinch together, I can’t go back to school either. I have a passion for people and know with my life’s struggles and depression, I can go back to school and become a therapist to help those who have gone through what I have. Seems I just can’t get there no matter how hard I try. I recently bought a car with the savings I had, which was very little, only to have it break down beyond repair. I live in government housing and can barely afford rent and bills, let alone enough food to last the whole month. I don’t have any close family because my family has never gotten along. Even Holidays are hard. I have my son and knowing how I’ve struggled and continue to struggle, breaks my heart and I just want help to get our life on track so I can show him it’s possible. I’m ashamed and embarrassed that it’s come to this, but I know there’s big hearts out there willing to help. I’m willing to accept whatever is given to me so I can start paying off my debt, go back to school and have decent transportation. I currently cannot work due to spinal surgery. However, being a therapist is what I crave. Please help with whatever you can and God Bless your heart in advance. My PayPal email link is, PayPal.me/Hope1977
Thank You :)
My name is Alexia, I lived in the US for about 10 years before I was deported last year, I struggled to get a job, but thankfully I did, however pay in El salvador is definitely not the same, I’ve found myself struggling constantly to provide for my son. I understand this is something a lot of people go through in this country, but I never expected to run out of savings this soon!!!
I make $600 a month, and have to pay $200 for a nanny, $200 in rent, I spend about $100 in milk, pampers and wipes on a monthly basis, and the remaining I use for food and bus fares.
I’m desparate, I have $40 to go on until the end of the month because my son was sick and my employer didn’t provide me with the required by law insurance.
I’m freelancing as a translator, and interpreter but there’s so much competition here and I barely make an extra $30 a month.
You may ask where is your family? Why don’t they help you? Well my family is in a deeper debt and I asked them but they said they couldn’t help me at all, we aren’t that close and I understand why they might be reluctant to help… so here I am, being desperate, just praying for a miracle.
Honestly I’m just a desperate mom, that would love a helping hand. I’m not asking for a lot, even just $25 would mean food on the table for my son and I.
If anyone wants to help, I would be forever grateful, I understand I’m not in the US and maybe not everyone is content with me asking for help, but I don’t know what else do to, since banks here just kept giving me the runaround for a $200 loan.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
I am contacting you because I’m in an overwhelming situation and Came across this website while trying to figure out who could help us. I am a single mother residing in Cleveland Ohio. Things have been extremely difficult for my family and I. Both of my parents are deceased and all of my family lives in Colorado and Louisiana. I was with my 3 daughters father for 16 years. Which turned out to be an abusive relationship. I made a way to get out of that situation and now I’m on my own raising my girls. I have 3 daughters, 11, 15, and 18. I am working 2 jobs as a nurse struggling to get my daughter through college. I managed to put myself through college to try and better myself. However, I am currently in the process of buying a home. I’m working day and night with very little time to spend with my girls. My loan officer tells me that I need 4900.00 to close on my loan. I’m currently also trying to clear things up that’s on my credit and have no idea how I can come up with 4900.00 within 2-3 weeks. I have never did this before, but felt that this was my only option at this point. If u are able to help me it would be greatly appreciated. I’m completely out of resources. Please let me know if u are able to help me or if u have a suggestion on someone else that would be willing to help my family and I. Hope to hear back from u!
|I really need help getting back on my feet. My main focus is my kids, I just need stability for them! I was doing great but I am at a point in my life where I’m going through so much! I just need a helping hand I’m living in an extended stay hotel because things became so overwhelming after I loss my job! My vehicle is down and it caused me to miss work days. I moved here with my husband who left me for someone else. I don’t know what else to do I’ve tried everything even to assistance. But there is not much you can get in a small city. I’ve went to different churches for help but with the waiting list and lack of funds they have been absolutely no help. On top of that my credit well I didn’t quite grow up in a family where I was taught about credit so I messed that up at a young age and when I was old enough to know anything about the importance of maintaining a good credit score the damage was done!. I was a mother at 15 dropped out of school to take care of my child because his fathers mother threatened to fight for custody because she felt I wasn’t old enough or prepared to take responsibility because I was in school. Had I known what I know now I would have been sure to stay in school but I didn’t no so I gave up for my child! At least I thought it was for my child and yes I went back to school and got my GED when my son grew older but that was nothing like what could have been of I’d graduated with my class! I know im not the only person going through something but I’m just asking for help through my situation right now because I feel I’ve been knock so far down I don’t know if there is possibly a way for me to get back up..|
Hi, i need £1000 to start the year debt free. Im a self employed single mum and Christmas is especially hard as there is no work and have 2 kids who want the latest toys! Every year i start off in debt because of this and i struggle for the rest of the year trying to play catch up all the time! for once i would just like to start the year stress free and start saving for the future. I have no family that can help nor can i get a loan because my credit is so poor! I have a lot to save for such as learning to drive to make getting around easier as one of my children goes to a special needs school, its hard to be there for both of them at the moment. I also cant get a second job as i only just about have child care for the hours i already work. My kids are age 7 and 4 and have never been on a proper holiday neither have i since i was 15! I would love to take them away for a few days somewhere hot and sunny! I would love to be in a position one day where i could help someone in my situation and if some kind hearted people are able to help me, i will make sure that this time next year i will make a donation to help someone to. Many thanks in advance

I messed this up the last time so I’m trying to post this again.
I am a single 30 yr old female. I have 2 daughters, 2 and 8 years old.
I began 2017 with a lot of hope. Had a decent job I was making money from, began working on a business to gain financial freedom. And all of it went to hell.
I have lived with my father on and off for years. I keep leaving because he would do something to ruin my situation and thus I would end up with friends who would screw me over and force me to have to move back with him.
This time he took the money and gambled. Then picked a legal battle with the landlords and got us evicted. My father is living with his family out here but they won’t let me and my kids stay because they hate me for not kissing their asses.
I was staying with my friend out here but she got herself evicted, so I’m with my daughter’s here living in a hotel, and broke.
I won’t be able to pay for Christmas. I couldn’t even do Thanksgiving because I’m a fuck up.
If you know how to give business advice I would gladly take any help. I’m still trying to contact the small business program out here but I don’t know when that will happen.
Please send something. Even $5 would get us some food.
I would ask if someone could spare more so I can do my online business but if not that’s ok too.
My email is email@example.com if you can give me business help or advice.
My PayPal is paypal.me/singlemotherbusiness
If you want to see what I’m doing as for online business then please contact me.
Thank you very much for your time and financial help. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
