Thank you for being willing to read my situation. I am a single mom of 4 kids and have found myself unable to bridge this gap in my financial situation. The home I am renting about the cheapest available for the number of bedrooms I am required to have. This was not a problem when we first moved in because I do work full time and I had a decent amount of overtime every week, child support had started to come in (I thought their father may have changed his ways and was going to take care of his responsibilities, that only lasted for 6 months). I went back to school as well to finish getting my bachelor’s degree in business administration and finance. This kept things in fine working order and I was starting to fix my credit and create a savings for eventually buying a home of my own for us.
When the child support stopped coming in after the six months it was damaging to my budget but fixable. My company unfortunately stopped all overtime as we merged due to being bought out by another mortgage company and this was right after I came from being out on disability for 6 weeks due to surgery. I still had my income tax return to look forward to and would be able to use that to catch up and possibly start paying on my debt again, but my car had issues. The car ordeal took almost a month to have fixed and cost almost all of my tax return that I had allocated for other bills.
I have been looking for other jobs that pay what I made with overtime but the process takes times. I also decided to start a cleaning company and have people interested in hiring myself and my daughter and help to keep my home and pay past due rent and utilities would allow me to focus on getting this little company going. To have an eviction is going to put us in worse situation and prevent me from getting another home.
I am looking to raise as close to $20,000 as I can to give bring relief to my situation and get a head start on building my dream company that focuses on health, wellness and financial well being too. I know I can get this going in the right direction but I am absorbed with trying to complete my classes for school work raise my kids and then looking for another job is full time work as well. I know I can use my past experience to give people hope and find their story of success and hope to share with others as well. And I am unable to get any help from the state because I do work and make more than minimum wage. The child support is up to $40,000 and the courts put him in jail for 6 months and he is right back to not paying.
I thank you again for taking the time to read and consider my situation, I am really trying to do right by my kids and fight as hard as I can and will give be an angel to someone else in the future.
