I am extremely embarrassed to do this and it is extremely difficult for me so all I ask is that you please not place any judgement on me for doing so. I am a single mother of three daughters, two of which are my biological daughters and one is a girl I took in after her mother passed away suddenly. I have been a single mother for the past 16 years without receiving any child support or any sort of government assistance and have worked very hard to provide for my girls, I have never been unemployed and at one point I worked four jobs and got little to no sleep most of the time, I currently work 40 plus hours a week but cannot make ends meet, for years I had a roommate to help offset costs, but recently have been had two different roommates leave me stuck and been left to pay everything on my own, collectively they owe me over $2,500 dollars and it has put me in the hole financially, I am struggling to pay my $1,600 a month rent payment, $425.00 electric payment, $500.00 water bill, $150.00 a month gas bill, $200.00 a month medical bill and putting food on the table for my daughters. I am not one to ask anyone for help, but I am becoming frightened of the fact that I may loose my home and if that happened I would be unable to get housing due to the fact that I cannot afford a deposit and the upfront money involved in moving. I have no criminal history and am very involved with my kids and their school, which is a predominately black school of which many kids attend from the inner city and I have been involved closely with our football program as my daughters are managers on the team and I even took in four boys into my home for an entire summer and provided for them the entire time, food, shelter, rides to summer school and summer practice all at my own expense only to have one of them steal $1,000 in which I paid back to the person they stole from to protect them from getting in trouble with the police, maybe not the best way to handle the situation looking back, but in my eyes these boys were already having to face so many challenges being young black men and not having the same opportunities other young men have I just wanted to see them succeed and all of them have with the exception of one of them. Anyways, I don’t mean to talk myself up, but I truly try to do the right thing and sometimes it causes me to suffer, but I have always been taught to help others less fortunate and I do the best I can to help others. At this point I would appreciate ANY help I could get. Thank you for taking the time to read my post.
