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.
Thank you for taking the time to choose our listing. My 3 year old son and I have had a rough year and are doing all we can to get through to 2018 with a smile on our faces.
We left an abusive relationship this summer and had to start from scratch – although it was completely worth it! We had nothing, not even a home for a couple of months. But things are starting to look up for us. It’s still just a constant struggle since it is just the two of us and I have a very limited income.
Right now it is the first of the month and I am short on the rent payment for our new apartment that I was finally able to get us. I am scared to death we will be back on the streets. This is my first priority. I am not far off, only about $200 so hopefully by Monday an angel has blessed us from somewhere or something.. IDK. I have never really had much luck with things like that. Our other issue is paying for his daycare as my child LOVES to learn. I haven’t had it in my heart to take him out even though it is $100-120 a week for “school.” The daycare assistance program in my county has been on a freeze for a year.. so one day, hopefully that gets to us also.
These things are what has to be paid. To keep us going even after the 25th.. but I dread that day when I only have a couple of small Dollar Tree items for him.
It’s always 1 step forward and 3 steps back it seems like you know. Please, if you are out there Santa.. we need you!
I am a mother of the most wonderful 5 month old, Lily Mae, I was living with her father for a few years and I recently left him because I don’t deserve the verbal abuse everyday and Lily doesn’t need to hear that either. Lily was born 2 months early and spent 30 days in NICU, when she came home I wanted to spend all the time with her that I could. Her father and I decided I would quit my job to raise her and I babysat for my neighbors. Since I have left him, I am staying at my mom’s house but Lily cannot come here because the house is filled with mold. On top of that I have to be picky about where I apply for jobs so I make sure I can get there since I don’t have a vehicle. I am working on getting a house for Lily and I, and a car so I can drive to work once I get a job. For now, I am still babysitting for the neighbors and I take their 7 year old to school in the morning. I told them I would have to quit and get a job making more money, so they are working on finding someone else. My mom and stepdad aren’t in the position to help, as much as they wish they could. I feel hopeless right now because I gave everything up to be a stay at home mom and my ex was supposed to support the both of us. All of a sudden I have to figure out a home and a car so I can be with my baby and get to work to support her. I am a hard worker, I have worked for 9 years in the insurance industry; it won’t take me long to get another job. I just need to get set up so I can take care of my baby. If it weren’t for her, I could stay at my mom’s until I get on my feet. But I need her here with me and I need help asap.
I appreciate your time.
I’ve been in business for 8 years, running my own online store. With the recent explosion of online sellers from all over the world, coming in with such low prices, I was forced to liquidate the inventory I had because I could not compete with their prices. I lost a lot of money but in the meantime found a product that has a great markup (with the ability to purchase higher quantities) and the market is not saturated. I’m so excited to grow this business again but I really need money for inventory. Unfortunately since the last few years have been very difficult, struggling to keep the business alive, I have defaulted on some bills which has lowered my credit score making it impossible to find a reasonable loan. I’m hoping a fellow entrepreneur reads this and can relate to my experience. 50k would help get me back on my feet and purchase enough inventory to get my product price down. I’m more than happy to share my detailed story with anyone interested. Please donate and help a hard worker! Contactpaperdepot@gmail.com
I’m a single mom to 5 kids since fleeing my physically and psychologically abusive husband. In August he assaulted 2 of my kids causing police to be called and him to go on the run. Since then he has emptied the bank account I have my money in, has broken into my home stealing property and now has it so that my kids and I need to move for our safety.
To make matters worse after he ran I tried helping a friend from highschool, a woman I have known for 22yrs and considered a sister. She claimed to be fleeing domestic violence as well and was apparently battling lung cancer. This woman had 3 kids and I wanted to help. Well safe to say it was a scam . Instead I was used, had property & cash stolen of mine and her kids by her. She took off with the rent money, a laptop that belonged to one of my children that has CP and nearly every article of clothing my son had because he was sharing with her boys.
I’ve been handwashing what little clothing I have for the kids and I because my ex destroyed the washing machine, but now my health isn’t allowing for it. I could use money to get clothing for girls sized 18-24 months, girls 2-3t, boys size 6x-7, girls size 7-8 and women’s sized medium & large.
I am also trying to raise money to relocate, of course not being me able to afford to because we aren’t safe where we are. My health is detirorating including MS and spinal cord issues, bills are piling up and I’m starting to stress out so I’m battling MS flare ups. I am legally physically disabled and have 2 kids with CP, plus the others have health issues as well. If you can help that would help us so much.
I honestly think helping others is important and do everything I can to help others. We spent the summer out every day handing out food and cold water to the homeless, and I knit scarves and hats for them in the winter. Now we can really use the help.
Good Evening, I have never done anything like this before but I’m in desperate need of assistance. I have fallen so far behind on my bills and mortgage payments that I fear I may lose my home that I share with my three beautiful children. They deserve nothing but the best life and I hate that they see mommy struggle and cry day after day worrying about how I’m going to pay off my debt and get back on track. I haven’t had a job since March of this year because I injured my hand and am filing for disability and was told not to work while doing that it else I wouldn’t get approved. Well now I’ve fallen so far behind and have taken a title loan out on my only vehicle to pay bills a couple months ago. Now I can’t pay back the loan and am about to lose my car, our only means of transportation. I’m hoping someone out there will take the time to get to know me and my situation and feel it in their heart to help me and my children out so we can get back on track and have a happy life. Thank you for taking the time to read this. If anyone was looking for a number of how much debt I’m in and what it would take for me to get out of debt and be able to begin fresh then my guess would be about 135,000 … I’m sorry it’s so much trust me I wish it wasn’t either :(
Hello, I hope this finds you all in good health and abundant happiness.
I gotta be honest and say this definitely is one of the hardest thing I’ve done in my lifetime. I feel a little ashamed asking for help but at this point in my life, it’s something that I need to do. And the reason I’m doing this is simple- 6, 15, and 19. That’s the ages of my three kids. You see I was married for 14 years to a man that didn’t beat me , didn’t cheat on me didn’t trick me or lie to me. We just grew apart, he worked got UP Railroad at the time and worked 7 on 8 off, out of state, so 14 days of the month I was a single parent. Something I found hard to shake once he came home. He also made it easy not too shake it when he was home because still in off time he was never home. Long story short, I divorced him. Talk about scary move. I was terrified. Here I was a single mother, hadn’t worked in 14 yrs outside the home, now what do I do? I did what I had to , got a job, a place for us to live and figured it out along the way. It was my choice to leave, so I had to suck it up and figure it out. That was 12 yrs ago. And honestly it’s getting better but some days I want to give up. I’ve not made some of the best choices but what I have done is learn from my mistakes. My father is dead and my mother hasn’t had contact with me for 14 yrs now and I’m not even sure where she lives. And have no family really to speak of except a Aunt that lives about 400 miles away I barely remember. Sad I know but what’s good I know is that I now have a 19 yr old in college with a a gpa of 3.26, A great 15 yr old in high school and a 6 yr old, at my age, (44) that is my saving Grace. God really knew what he was doing when he gave her to me last …..and so late in life lol. With all that comes more stress, kids needing clothing, cars , tuition and books, ins etc. My ex got hurt in a bad car wreck and pays very little in support, but pays what he can. The home I’m living in had been sold and so here I am figuring out how and where we are gonna live. We have until the 31 is December. To be honest my credit score isn’t horrible but isn’t great either, home loan would take some time for me to repair a few things before I can get a decent fixed .interest rate. So I considered looking at homes that are leased to purchase. But even there, the option fee would have to be met right off as well. So what I’m asking is for advice on what to do, maybe someone knows someone that can help us find a home or help me with a down payment or even the first last and deposit payment for a rental. I work 5 days a week. Can do whatever to help . I’m not asking for you to give me money, I’m asking for a non-conventional loan. One I pay back thru whatever means you find acceptable cash on payment plan, community service, pay it forward anything legal and leaves me with my dignity in tack. I’m good for it. Lol, everyone says that…. So cliche. But honestly I’ve got 3 little people that I’ve got to show I’m not giving up when things look impossible, sometimes you have to ask for help. Because if I give up, what am I teaching them? This is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. Thank you for the time you gave me to read this. My daughter, the one in college, gave me a plaque last Christmas that boosted me to not get caught up in depression, self pity and guilt but to keep on fighting. The plaque is pictured below as well as the home I’m looking for help in renting. Nothing fancy but it’s a home for me kids and me.
Hello my name is Cynthia Armalin I am a single parent of 7. Right now I’m inside of the proposition of being with no home. At the beginning of the school year summer me and my kids move into a new home I thought it would be a life-changing this is a first home that we had together. I worked 7 days out the week to provide for my kids because that’s what a mother does and I love my kids. By the middle of September October my landlord was selling the house behind my back right now I have only until November 14 to find a place for me and my children. I lost both of my clients doing to the diss likeness of my landlord. For that my landlord has cost me to lose money leaving me and my kids to be without lights because I couldn’t pay for them. I scraped up money for an apartment application and now I’m approved. But however I do not have the money for us to move in. Getting this apartment will get us out the dark and we will have water. It also includes a home that we will have. I don’t usually consider asking because I try to do it on my own. But this time I am in desperately need. Please help me get me and my kids into a home. All im asking for is 900$ to get in a home.
I am 30 days away from being homeless if I can’t come up with $5,000 to pay off late fees for my current apartment and find somewhere else to live. I am a single mother of 1 who receives absolutely no help and I’m at my wits end. I’m not even going to be able to afford presents for my son for Christmas or his birthday and it breaks my heart to have to tell him that. I just really need some help getting back on my feet. If anyone wants to help, I have a PayPal account you can donate to. Anything helps.
hello to all! I am facing some some very hard times right now. I’ve never had family or friends to turn to for any kind of help so Im hoping that writing on this page I can find it here! I am in desperate need of financial help concerning a car title loan. I do work a full time job and pick up side jobs cleaning houses anytime they are available and offered but since the death of my husband ive been the soul provider for me and my daughter making my current situation very difficult. My income does allow me to afford our house payment, electric, water but nothing more. It’s paycheck to paycheck but we’ve been happy and it was working until my daughter broke her glasses on the school bus. Her Medicaid had just paid for them 2 months prior and only replace them once a year. Her eyes are to bad to go without them, she has to have them. Her teachers starting sending letters home about her squinting and not being able to read the chalk board. Her education is so important to me. I had to find a way to replace them. I researched for many hours and the only luck I had was this car title company. I felt I had no other choice or option so accepted the lowest amount offered ($500)knowing my financial situation and in hopes of some extra cleaning jobs to have it paid off as fast as possible. I replaced her glasses. I worked many side jobs and made many many 250 dollar cash payments to this title company but have yet to pay it off assuming now because of the high interest rate and the title company restarting the loan over or refinancing it over and over. Eventually I could no longer afford to keep paying these payments and am now in default and they are saying I have to pay $1041.00 to pay it in full and keep my only car. I’m desperately trying to repossess my one and only car so I’m asking for someone to please help me out of this situation, to get this paid off and get my finances back on track. This is my only car I have no other means of transportation for work or school so if its repossessed I’ll lose everything. I have no other means to get another car. Ot would be so greatly appreciated if there was anyone out there to help in any way possible! No words could explain what it would mean to me. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this!
Hello, I truly hate that i have to do this but i don’t know what else to do. I’m a 27 yr old mother to a very bright 8 yr old son. 2 yrs ago had our own place, car, I was enrolled in community college, plus working full time. Everything went South or bad when I got laid off because the company I worked for went out of business. I lost completely everything I’ve worked so hard for. My place, my car, furniture. EVERYTHING. I didn’t get approved for government assistance because they went back the past 10 months off my income, and stated I made too much. I don’t have a lot of family or friends in my city, and ended up having to move with my old schoolmate who has 3 kids herself and living in low income. Since I’ve been able to find a job, but it’s not much and its only helping me to pay for where I’m staying, and I have to pay to make it to work, and for food. (Cant stay anywhere for free.) I’m trying my hardest not to give up on life because I have a son whom did not ask to be here, and deserves so much more. I now have an eviction on my name which is a public record and every time I apply for housing I’m turned down because of it. So I contacted the lawyers to the old complex and they gave me a bill of $6100 that I owe for breaking the lease. But they are willing to settle for $4000. (Ridiculous)! This lady sad to say wants me to move, and I’m definitely ready to go, but if I leave I literally have to go to a shelter with my son, and that’s my biggest fear. My son doesn’t deserve to live like this already, let alone like that. If I could get assistance paying off that debt to my old apartments, and get help getting a car (nothing fancy) I could get a better paying job, and go back to school, and get everything back to normal. I just need a blessing. I’m scared, and it’s getting cold, and I can’t be homeless. If anybody has the ability to bless myself and my son, I promise to never end up in this situation again, and to also pay it forward when I’m able. We’ve been homeless, & sleeping in a cold basement for 2 yrs, and I couldn’t fathom being on the streets with a kid. Please if you or anybody can find it in your heart to help me, I promise I’ll work harder to never be in this situation again. This is kinda embarrassing.
Hello everyone, hope everyone’s day is great. I am reaching out today because I have tried in every way possible to fix my situation. I’m a young single mother who’s fiance left a week ago. We had just moved into a new house with plans on sharing bills. Now he has left and left me with all the financial responsibility to myself. I had just very recently moved to this state, I don’t know anyone and I have no family. I started a new job last week and it will be three weeks until I will even receive my first paycheck. I can not sign up for assistance they say once my pay comes in it will be over the limit.?? So I am really struggling to get through this and next month for my child and myself. Rent is due today at $700 electric was due 5 days ago almost $100 gas bill was due yesterday. And not to mention groceries etc. I’ve applied for loan and keep getting rejected. I am so upset and stressed and don’t know what to do. All while staying strong for my child. Children don’t need to see Mom worried sick. I hate to ask for help or handouts I’d rather have a loan and pay back anything I have gotten, I don’t know how this works but if loans aren’t possible maybe whatever help I’m given I can give to someone in return,when I’m back on my feet. Thank you everyone who has taken time to read this. I hope someone has some answers for me. Have a blessed day.Also I have tried to add pictures for proof I am having a hard time with it hopefully they will post.
I am a very kind, loving and giving person. My greatest fault was always that my heart was too big and I would give anyone the shirt off my back, so to speak, if they needed it or even wanted it. I was raised by very loving, Southern Baptist parents. I have lived in Georgia all my life. My father always taught me to never borrow money from anyone or if you do, make sure you pay them back, even if it was just a dollar because every time that those people saw you the fact that you never paid them back would always cross their mind. I am very thankful that my parents are still alive and live close to me. They have helped me financially all that they can and even taken out loans on their house to do so.
I lost my job on 8/11/17 as an Executive Administrative Assistant / Office Manager for a small company. I have been an Administrative Assistant, Office Manager, Bookkeeper for over 25 years but am having a hard time finding a job. I have been divorced for about 8 years and have 3 beautiful boys.
The situation that I am in now is probably the hardest thing that I have gone through in my life, thus far. The constant worry and uneasy feeling that gnaws away at me is overbearing. The worst part is the way that my children look at me and the feeling that I have let them down and if the need arises, I cannot help them in any way that a mother should be able to help her children. This has been the most humbling experience for me as a mother to tell my children that I cannot afford food, clothes, or even gas to put in my car to take them to a friend’s house, school event, etc. I feel as if I have let my children down and myself and I do not know what to do.
I have sold all my jewelry that was worth anything and everything that I can think of to make ends meet. I now cannot pay rent, utility bills, auto insurance, loan payments that I took out and needless to say I have no health insurance. The only thing that I own and have is my car.
I realize that there are people and families out there that are in much worse hardship than me, but this is the bottom for me, so far. I am asking for any financial assistance that can be given so that I can climb out of the whole I am in before it gets any worse.
I will have no place to live very soon and all my utilities will be cut off. This is something that I never would have fathomed would happen to me. If you could please find it in your heart to assist it would mean a great deal to me and possibly get me headed in the right direction.
Hello! I’m writing to request aide with my daughter’s tuition for school. The total amount is $2760 for the year. I am a single mother, I recently lost my full time job and started working a different full-time job for $3 less per hour. Unfortunately the funds are not making it. I can cover rent and utilities and groceries but I have come up short for her tuition. My daughter is in 7th grade and is thriving in the school that she is in. She used to attend public school which was a bit more cost effective but she was struggling. There are way too many students for the teachers to give the proper attention to each student. My child was one of the kids that needed a little more one on one attention. Fortunately we have found a place for her to get that. She loves science and is currently studying human anatomy. Her father is kind of in the picture but he does not help us financially and after agreeing to cover the tuition for the beginning half of the year, has changed his mind and is urging me to transfer her to a public school. My daughter was troubled for some time and after speaking to a psychologist we were told she has ADHD which can make it difficult for her to focus on her work. At this school with the smaller class sizes, she has been able to get the attention she needs and has learned to focus on her work. She is such a beautiful child inside and out and I just want her to have a better chance than I did. We need help and asking for the help is a big step for me. I have taken care of things on my own for seven years and with the help of family helping with childcare. We are blessed with people in our lives to help with some of the day to day things but there is no one with the means to help financially. Even if we do not receive the full amount of her tuition any little bit will help. Something I did not mention before was that I too am in school. I have finally returned to get my degree in Nursing. I am still seeking different employment so that I can meet my former salary and be able to cover the tuition but until then I’m just asking a little assistance. Thank you very much for taking the time to read this.
I’m a 30 year old single mother of a very happy and healthy 2 soon to be 3 year old little boy. He is my miracle child because i was told the probability of me having children was slim to none. After years of trying with no luck i came to terms with the idea of never being a biological mother. Then out of NO where my blessing came along! He is my heart my everything! And i have been lucky enough to be a stay at home mother. This however has changed as my source of income (providing childcare) no longer is available. I am actively applying and interviewing for jobs. However my phone is off due to lack of funds. This makes it hard for potential employers to get in contact with me about setting up interviews. Or for me to make calls to line up childcare for my son.
Rent is also due on the first. I do live in government housing but even low rent and utilities are a lot when you have little to nothing.
And to top it all off the registration on my vehicle expires at the end of the month and though it’s a yearly fee it’s bad timing with all of my current debts. Then my little guys birthday is just a few weeks away and then bam Christmas!
I’m gratefull for any and all help provided!
Hi, my name is Jessica. I’m a senior in high school, and I live with my single mom and little sister. My life, in a economic stance, isn’t very good. My mom works at least 4 hours a day, with commission, and earns about $150 weekly, putting it all together for our rent, with the help of our child support system with my father, totaling about somewhat $400, depending how long it takes for him to send money. I’ve always wanted to help my mom in some way, unfortunately my mom wants me to focus on school I have to take care of my sister as we don’t have a lot of family around our area. My mom has applied to housing, financial support from the government, etc.. no response. We’ve had way too many slip ups from us eventually almost being evicted once again. My mom sometimes has to resort to asking friends for money and doing any sacrifices whatsoever to get paid back. All I ask is for any amount of money, $1, $5, $10, even .25 cents! I really wanna start helping my mom out, and with college right around the corner, I won’t be around much but yet at the same time I still want to help her. I know a lot of single moms are dealing with situations similar to mine and even worse and we’re not that much of a “special snowflake” but as cliche as it sounds, we really do need the help. Thank you so much and for anyone reading this or donated, God bless your kind hearted soul and have a great day.
Hello, my name is Jade. I live in Lepanto, Arkansas. I am a single mom to Jaylynn 9 & Lucas 5. I really hate having to ask for donations and I’ve second guessed it and I’ve come to the conclusion that no matter how mad I don’t want to ask for help I need and have to have help in order for my children and I to make it. I don’t necessarily know how to ask for this but im going to try my best. I am a 27 year old single mom I work a job that isn’t ever gonna lead to more but its the only thing helping right now. I had a car but it was a 1991 Toyota Camry & that’s the only car I’ve ever owned and it quit on me a few months ago and it’ll cost more than its worth to fix it so me and my children have been waking up every morning at 5 am I get them and myself ready and we walk to the bus stop which takes them to school and me to work most afternoons I walk from work to school then home. This is very hard and I don’t know how much longer I can take this. I am not even gonna ask for a specific amount because I would be more than thankful for any amount of money to help me get a vehicle just even for the down payment. Please consider me and my babies for your donations and we will be forever thankful for you. I hope you have a blessed and wonderful day, thank you for taking your time to read this.
Hello I’m Margo Sylvia 31 from Parkersburg West Virginia. I was born in San Francisco California adopted at age 5 ,sent to Parkersburg West Virginia where I was raised. I had two children one in Middle School Malachi one in high school Tyson and now I have two girls to add to my clan. I graduated high-school in 2005 from Parkersburg high school with both my boys, proud ,determined. I have an Associates in dependency disorder I’m working on my bachelor’s in psychology. Fortunately I’m leaving a very violent situation with an ex and had lost just about everything that you needed to live. I now have an apartment slightly furnished,but enough for the kids to be comfortable I have a job, and am working to accomplishing goals but I’ve reached a dead end. When I left I had to leave the vehicle even that I was paying for it it wasn’t in my name and it didn’t belong to me. I thought I could live in California safe sound and secure with my kids without a vehicle . I also thought that getting a vehicle would be a lot easier than what it is. I’ve reached extreme hurdles trying to get kids to sporting events, myself to sporting events as I officiate basketball, to work, to school it’s more expensive than I ever imagined . But I have reached out to every resource from auto loans to Charities ,to car giveaways and I haven’t been able to capture anything. My credit is not the best due to lack of responsibility as being a younger parent or a younger person in general. I am incapable of gaining any kind of loan with a 570 credit score multiple student loans a car repossession due to the situation also and just stinking thinking. I’m not one to ask for help but I do know a closed mouth doesn’t get fed and a person that doesn’t reflect on someone else’s wisdom, whether it be helped in money, advice help and understanding. That nothing we set out to do can’t get accomplished.Because more Minds together build mountains one mind alone can build them but it’ll take a lot longer. I am asking for 5,000 – 6,000 dollars to purchase a car so no payment is needed later. And I can afford maintenance and insurance. I have had a license since age 16. I am flattered by the opportunity to even feel that someone cares on the other end. I am flattered by the opportunity that I’m still going to be a phenomenal mother and here for my children if I have to piggyback them. I understand that a lot of people have problems in that there are problems worse than mine so if you do not help I am just going to think that someone else needed it more than me and that’s okay . Bless you your family and anyone else reading this due to the fact that you don’t even have to I appreciate you thank you. From the bottom of our hearts I thank you for even considering it, a vehicle would truly change my children’s life and I at the moment for the better.We’re blessed for what we have so if it doesn’t come it’s not our time have a good day Margo Sylvia.

I don’t even know, how to start – well, asking for help is hard thing, and I never, never did this before… So I will go straight and simple.
I’m a simple woman, mother of two beautiful girls – one is 7 years old and other is just two weeks old. They are so pretty, smart and beautiful… They are miracles of my life :) But my own situation is really, really bad… I suffered from depression for long years, from first daughters birth, but somehow everything was normal, I worked, I lived, I raised wonderful, smart girl… I had problems – and solved them. But situation changed. I lost my job before second pregnancy. I tried start some own – and it doesn’t worked. At this moment I also don’t have a job – and I can’t get some for a while, I have a newborn. Because I doesn’t worked before birth, now I haven’t any income or savings. But I have mountain of unpaid bills and loans from that pregnancy without job time – and deadlines of them are so near, I’m so scared to stay without home… I’m trying to find some work, that I can do just from home, with baby – it’s not so easy, but I still have hope. I’m a good person, I’m a good mother, but for now I can’t do nothing.
I need almost 5000 Eur to pay all bills and credits, and this is so incredible amount for me. So I’m asking for any possible help, from any good people – maybe small donation, maybe some job, that I can do for you online, from home, or something, something, that can help me to climb from this and live… I don’t need new home, car or things – what I have, it’s enough to live for me. I just need clear credit history and job – I want give to my girls everything they need by myself. Like before.
You know, I have strong faith – one day everything will be ok. One day I will have job, I will have enough money to my girls and ever more – maybe to payback for every people, who helped me, or maybe just donate to another mother in hard situation, to help her start all over. I really have faith. But for now I need help from someone…
Any single cent is incredible worth for me – paypal.me/dolup
I gave birth to my perfect baby girl on June 23, 2017 – her father was taken to the same hospital ER DOA on June 23, 2017. I want only the best for my child, as any mother would say; but, right now, I just want to keep a roof over her head and have the heat turned back on.
My landlord has been reluctantly understanding but that is quickly coming to an end (I haven’t paid any of my $425/month rent since the baby arrived). The utilities, medical bills, and vehicle repair expenses have forced me to go into the negative and beyond. There isn’t anyone left to borrow from, power and water have been cut and gas is quickly approaching. I was working up until I was 7 months pregnant when complications forced me to bed rest. Now that I’m so far behind and desperately need work I cannot for the life of me find secure employment. It isn’t for lack of trying or education – I’m willing to take anything, but it seems those are the times nothing is available when you need it the most.
I don’t ask for help – never have, but my daughter doesn’t deserve deal with the stress of no power or heat because her father was taken too early and her mother is drowning.
The idea of a faceless nameless angel being able to simply make it so my daughter can simply watch Elmo again brings me to tears.
Honestly, if I totalled everything (rent and past due bills including – not medical) I would need $7800 to catch up and cover through the year so I might be able to breathe enough to find a job so I can provide respectably for my baby girl.
Hey there.. My name is Jessika.. I am 32 years old.. And this is what is going on in my life. I just recently got out of a terrible abusive relationship that I was in for 8 years. This man was 6 foot 4 and 200 pounds while I’m 5 foot 2 and 145 pounds. Because he was very verbally, physically, emotionally, and mentally abusive towards me he changed the person I once was. I have 2 children with him my son is 9 and my daughter is 5 I see the ways that this situation has affected them in their behavior. My son suffers from a depressive disorder and my daughter is adhd and never stops talking about things she Whiteness during the time we were abused. Last year he tried to push me in front of a moving car and I almost got hit when we returned home he started a fight and I had just had enough I tried to leave. He told me I wouldn’t be leaving unless I was in a body bag and in front of my children he attacked me beat me up stabbed me w a kitchen knife and choked me until I passed out then walked out the front door. I came too and called my mom who called the police and he not even to jail whole I enter to the hospital. During the time I was there someone broke into my house and stole everything I owned. I recovered unable to work die to the nerve damage he caused my arm I’m struggling. I receive ssi. For a lemon who has worked since I was 15 this little amount of income doesn’t cut it. The only way to fix my nerves is to cut open my neck and hurt all the nerve endings and I refuse to have that because I would lose all feeling. I u still need a little boost. I have my own place too and everything I had to furnish it with what I have and it’s really hard to get ahead I keep falling farther behind. I need hot and I don’t know where else to turn. I don’t just want a and out I’m willing to do what ever I can to earn it or anything. I hope you are able to find it in your heart to help us out plz plz plz.
I am not sure even how to begin. Two years ago my husband was killed very tragically. He was my Jr. High…first love. My world turned upside-down. I have 3 beautiful kids ages 12,10,5. They are the loves of my life! They are all very busy and involved in all sorts of activities. I am simply trying to stay afloat. Trying to give my kids the life they deserve is all I want. I do work and I love what I do I am a makeup artist giving woman the tools and the empowerment to feel and look their best. I think I am just rambling. I am humbly asking for help financially. My car took a nose dive and I had to get into something new, but since my husband died I have fallen behind in everything. Medical bills and other debts have really taken a toll on my credit. We are heading into the holidays and I just want to not be behind and trying to keep my head above water. I want to provide for my kids. I dream to get out of this tiny apartment and get into a house when just renting so my kids can have a yard again and get a dog normal things that are all too often taken for granted. Even renting a home takes thousands. First, last, deposit. Anyway I don’t have a specific amount that to ask for because really everything or anything would help. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and if you decide to donate to my family please know how truly thankful,and grateful my children and I are!! God bless!
I am Veronica Lyson I am a single mother of a one year old precious little boy. Before I had gotten pregnant I used all my savings for a down payment on a car but I needed a cosigner. A couple of months after having my son my cosigner decided to take my car from me. It was winter, I had no car, and a five month old baby. My cosigner drove my car around for months (even though he has his own vehicle) until one day he was drunk driving and totaled the car. He is okay but the car is not. I am currently still making payments on the vehicle. I have tried everything to somehow get a loan or approved by a car dealership so I can get a new car but nobody will work with me because I still have thousands to pay on the other vehicle. I need a car very badly to get my son to his appointments and to get to my job. I’ve been without a car for a year now and it is getting harder and harder to find rides. Also winter is approaching and it gets very cold here so it will be to cold to walk anywhere with my son. I want to purchase a newer vehicle so it is dependable and I can have it for a long time. Anything helps and is greatly appreciated! Also thank you for taking the time to read my story and what I have to say! Have a nice day! :)
Hello. My name is Jenna. My life has become increasing difficult with one struggle after another for the past five years. I left an abusive situation, both physical and mental, thinking that was what was best for my daughter and I. With one household paycheck, I find that everyday living is always a constant struggle. I have no vehicle at this time, no home, and am getting ready to switch jobs in hopes that I can make more money. I would love to give my daughter a home, have reliable transportation, and just be able to afford groceries without picking which bill will not get paid. I realize so many are in my situation, or have it so much worse. I’m not in the habit of asking for help. I’ve been working since the age of 13. But, going to bed every night crying and praying for “Someone to take a chance on Me” is all I can do right now. I’m not sure how much money I need. Any help with funding will be an answer to my prayers. Thank you for your time in reading my post. My biggest prayer is that one day I will be in a position to give to those in need, like the ones who gave to me in my darkest time.
I’m a mummy of three beautiful children and since separating from their dad I’ve struggled financially.
I don’t get any help from him with the children or financially and it’s so difficult getting by on the money I do get.
After all my bills are paid I’m left with a few pounds each week. My rent has now gone up by £22.50 a week and with bills going up by a few pound as well it’s hitting us hard. I’ve just received a fine for £350 due to not having insurance on an old car which was scrapped. I forgot to send off the log book. Luckily they have allowed me to pay this off at £10 a week but already now I’m around £40 down a week which I just can’t afford.
It may not sound a lot but I was struggling already with out having to find more. I feel like crying most days as I just don’t know what to do and I have no one to ask to help me. I’m trying so hard to better myself to get myself out of this situation.
I’m studying and I have just applied for university to be able to provide independently for myself and my children in the future but I just need a little help now if anyone is able to. You really would be helping me so much and it would mean the world to me.
I never thought I would be in this situation but it’s where I’ve found myself to be. I really would appreciate it so much. I’m not asking for a lot just a little bit to cover the bills that have gone up and if there’s anything left after everything’s paid then I can treat the little ones to a trip out as everyone deserves a treat now and then and they’re so good.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story.
I am a single mother of a teenage girl and an animal lover. I have a 9 year old chihuahua dog and a 2 year old cat, I love them dearly and they are part of our family. I’ve been doing crossfit about 5 times a week for 3 years now, I have a special rate which would be a shame for me not to take advantage of, plus I love it and use it to the max, for me it’s a passion! … I have a full time job, pays enough for our needs but I don’t have much left for extras. I don’t own or do anything fancy in my life as I barely get by. I have too much debts that accumulated over the years and I’m trying to pay it off, but it’s too much, it’s making our life miserable. I have a budget and I want to get out of debts, but it will take forever, I don’t see the end of it! Meanwhile, I feel like my life is passing by because it restrains us so much.
I have about $5000 of debts combined. But lately, my former landlord contacted me to get $8000 in rent arrears. I’ve paid my rent on time my whole life, but this particular landlord suddenly went silent for months last year, resulting in him not being there when I needed him and not cashing the rent money. I tried to reach him many times to pay rent and to get his help when I needed something to be fixed, but he was just unreachable and nowhere to be found. Other tenants had no news of him either, we were all in the same weird situation. I ended up moving out at the end of my lease without him realizing his tenant moved out.
I had kept aside all the rent money I owed him in case he would reappear. After months in my new place, still no news of him. I was thinking that there’s a good chance that I will never hear from him. So then temptation became very high, I used the money to pay some debts… It helped a lot!! My total debt went down to $5000, I was happy that I had a good chunk paid off!! But then, of course, my former landlord reappeared!!! Yup, totally out of the blue he gave me a call, apologizing for not being around for a while but he’s asking for the rent arrears, and yes as per the law he can still request it. That is a serious problem, I cannot spit out $8000, I don’t want to have issues with the law and that’s a major setback for me since I thought I was getting closer to be debt free…
On top of it, my little dog needs a tooth cleaning. I don’t want her to end up having her teeth removed (lots of money and I wouldn’t want that for her…) and have general health issues (again lots of money) related to bad teeth. Tooth cleaning is about $400 to have this done…
So, this $5000 of old debts, that $8000 of rent arrears and $400 of doggy tooth cleaning is a total of $13400… That’s poisoning my life. Literally.
Please… I want to take care of my daughter without struggling so much, take care of my dog, pay off my debts and enjoy what life has to offer. I love my family, I love working out at crossfit and improving my running time and distance, that’s what keeps me going.. My situation is stressing me out so much… it affects my mental and physical wellness, I’m scared and I’m upset.
There is an upscale neighborhood nearby my apartment and when I take a walk there I find some of them to be lucky to have what they have. They are not all “rich”, some wealthy people do have financial issues too, mainly due to poor money management I guess? Some had opportunities and made smart moves. Some make a very high salary. Some inherited money. And some may just had it a lot easier than others. Whatever led them to have a lot of money, I’m happy for them because it worked out well for them. I wouldn’t be asking help from people who’s already struggling or don’t have much extra money for themselves, they couldn’t do it anyway even if they wanted to. I can’t help but thinking though that some people on this planet have so much money, that my money issue is just pocket change for them. I think that there may be good people out there with the means to help. If there’s any of you reading this, who’s wealthy enough, who feels like doing a good gesture to someone in NEED, who wants to make someone very happy and change someone’s life… let me tell you that your help would not just make my day or make my year, that would make my LIFE!!!!!!!!
I pray the Lord that someone would help us… My daughter, my dog and I would be FOREVER grateful to you.
Also, because I do have a big heart too, I promess to pay it forward, to help someone in need whenever I would be able to, later in life. Because I believe that’s how life works.
Here’s a picture of my dog :)
Thanks, please help.
My name is Lonee Sisk, I’m 30 yrs old my story is not really what you could say is ordinary.
I want to begin with how i got to where I am today.
2013 is the year that would forever change me my LIFE the person I was to become and who I was were like night and day.
February 23, 2013 my 19 yr old half sister which was the baby of 3. Me the oldest my brother same mom and dad and her sharing our dad. She committed suicide which was the start to a series of life changing events over 4 months time.
My brother had a real hard time with Shanna our sister killing herself, which was something this lady told me was very much the big reason people cant move on from suicide related grief. Its delays the acceptance which delays the grief process. The lady was someone who my friend knew who had experienced a few close suicide deaths herself. My brother ended up getting in trouble landing him 5 and a half yrs in state prisons. April 30, 2013 was the day he was sentence same time about my grandma was taken off life support and passed away she was the one who was the monarch of our family and one of my best friends. My family being very close my whole life my mom aunt, myself and her didn’t have a single secrete. My boyfriend of 5 yrs had, 3 weeks later landed a yr in our municipal jail in the city we currently reside. I then found out that I was pregnant June of 2013. As well as I was by that time 3 months into my pregnancy which in its self was its own entire thing with out adding all the events prior too.
I am ORH- blood type. I am lucky my blood attacks any small or even heals a wound quick and i can give anyone my blood but can not receive any other type . Someone with that very blood type needs to have a shot before the second trimester of pregnancy begins. I was already there. I had not warning I feel like if I knew I prior to I would have done something and not had him because not only had my sister and grandma were not ever going to be back in physical form but my brother went to prison so he would be different, my entire family who once had pizza as a family for valentines day from great grandparents to great grand kids since I could remember in my 26 years of life had not been staying in contact or gathering as support and keeping our traditions alive. I had my mom and aunt who both lost their mom and best friend my grandparents conceived my mom when he was 18 and she 16 had been married 40+ yrs they both were empty shells and had a hard time accepting it. My aunt was in a relationship with a guy who popped pills and treated her like dirt and he never met us, didn’t want to. Anyway its a long story but she is doing a yr and a half on domestic charges in state prison. My mom this summer finally started being more than a body who souls was gone like it had died that day my grandma did.
My son was due November 2013. I was doing good until my 28 week visit when I had been tested to find out my protein count was 3 Times what it was supposed to be and was hospitalized for 4 days before they did a emergency C-section because my blood pressure was 210/110 and my body wasn’t getting rid of his toxins. I always joke how I was only pregnant 3 months ( I knew about lol). Now to keep up to date at 13 i was told if ever I was not going to be able to naturally have children, I have not on Birth control since age 18 when my doctor took me off it saying had less than 3% chance of having children, I was 26 when we got pregnant. Never even had a scare. His father and I were together 5yrs before we got pregnant.
My son was 2lbs3 oz. 14.25in . Born 28 weeks and 4 days of the 40 weeks. He had made it to a point of 95% chance of survival but obviously no guarantees. He made it out with one infection all premise get being poked and prodded to soon. 17 days of antibiotics and be was good no issues and was home a month early from the N.I.C.U. Its crazy neither one of us (me and him) should be here, my body should have rejected him do to my blood type, his body was killing mine, with poison from not getting rid of his toxins, and my B.P was far beyond stroking out actually my heart should have exploded but some how we are both healthy as ever. Talk about knowing something is were it needs to be. As well as the doctors and councilors from the N.I.C.U were very confused with how I was still sound of mind after my trying year. The Councillor wanted to use me as her doctorate final paper. I am strong willed and look at life as it happens nothing can change the past or present and maybe sometimes its your fault maybe sometimes its not but you only have to take it, its how you deal with it either with a gram of sugar or grain of salt. So I felt that wouldn’t much to secure her degree ?.
It took sometime to get into the swing of having a kid with no time to process even more so to get ready. I didn’t even get a baby shower. I googled what i needed for my son lol. I slept a lot for the first year. My kids dad got out of jail and 3 weeks later when our son was 6 months landed 2.5 yrs in prison. Making me a single parent and forcing my decision to break up 3 months into him being in prison. I want more for my son than what his dad has accomplished, more than i have also. I moved home to my moms and step dads house. I’m not on welfare but I do receive SSI for my son until he is 5trs old do to kids his gestation have higher out of pocket medical cost. I have been financially just making it barely. I have had one thing or another just about every month something going wrong. My step dad has a hard time keeping jobs steady, and my mom just now after 3 yrs waiting was finally approved for Disability but had no income prior to April this year. So making sure lights were on and a roof over my kids head spent a lot of stressful months making up short Cummings. That brings us to today October 6, 2017.
Last summer august 2016 our landlord gave us a 60 day no cause eviction after 3 yrs of renting from him, which our housing market sucks. My son and I spent the month of August in Burns Oregon, small rual town in Harney county population 2,700. We came back September 2016 when my parents found a house to rent. Over the last year my step dad and I been butting heads and battling for what roles belong to me as the parent and him as a live in grandparent. It’s become a rather toxic envirment for my son. Im deel like I dont have support from him or that my wishes are upheld which makes me unhappy and my step dad unhappy since we fight alot. Its become really bad so last week of september 2017, I told my mom I was wanting to move to Burns. I can afford to live alone there and its the perfect little town to raise my kid. Slow and people still have trust and practice respect. The sherrife wears street close with his badge attached to his cotton tee.
My Aunt Tammy (moms childhood best friend) sends my mom a text, her husband and her were going before the city council to start a delivery service based out of Burns and her husband had backed out. He decided its not something he wants to get started so late in his life. And my mom had been on her mind like crazy. So she wanted my mom to do it with her. Since that very morning my mom and I just talked about me moving there.
It was a sign, I was the one who is supposed to be her partner. For the first time in my 30 yrs my life’s purpose actually had a path that I wanted so bad to see and to that very second had never been able to see. I felt like I was spinning on the old time meri-go-round. Going so fast and everything was blurry and unrecognizable from start to finish only it wasn’t even slowing down. It finally just stopped and I finally saw and I wasn’t even dizzy.
My parents were having lots of issues as well the past few years. And after my choice to move they decided to split up and mu step dad is going to work back on the road and my mom is going to stay with family. They gave our landlord a 30 day notice. My step dad leaves 10-6-17 and I am trying to get a place secured there. So I’m going to try to rent a apartment since its hard to find a house. Also looking at help to relocate since I have such a short time and have a fix income, and moving there I have this huge opportunity that I have been waiting my whole life for.
So here is what I have been looking at and what i need. I have been looking at buying a home. If I could come up with $8,000 to $10,000 for a down payment I can start a real new start! I could have the foundation to make this huge change in my life and I have never lived in a apartment and neither has my son, our family is loud ?. I want to make this change as easy as I can for my son and myself. I want to keep my dog he and my son are week apart in age and he would be devastated on top of us not seeing my parents everyday it will be ruff as it is already. I know that maybe a little on the selfish side but I am not selfish at all. Actually I will give what I can to anyone who may need it and that its self has also been part of why I have been stuck in limbo.
Below are the listings i am looking at on Zillow. Also I did the mortgage circulator and with a min $8,000 down none of my monthly payments with taxes and insurance is more than $400 a month. I PAY $300 as it is now. So its a good place to spend the money. No more paying for someone else’s home. And everything for our buisness is in motion and checking to do’s off each day so with in the next 60 days at least could easly be reality.
I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to consider my request. I hope I did a good job painting the picture of my life and the goals I am reaching for. I am just looking for a little help to live comfotably and if I had another option I would not be asking today.
Lonee “L.J” Sisk and son.

Hello, I have never in my life imagined I would be here asking for help but I am stuck. I started medical school when I was 19 I was a year in when i fell pregnant. I was absolutely in love with my boyfriend but when I was 8 months pregnant he told me he didn’t want to know me or the baby anymore. I don’t want to turn this into a sob story everyone has been through shit in there life. Anyway I carried on I had my little girl and she is the most perfect beautiful little girl and I’m not being biases (hehe ok I am but she is perfect). Anyway I had to leave medical school. After 4 years I am now back, it really has been my dream for years to do this again and I’ve been given the opportunity. Since becoming a single mum I have no help whatsoever I am up to my eyeballs in debt (£2,500) and I just wish I could pay it off but after bills, food shops and everything else there’s just no way. I have looked at loans, saving every penny I can. I even looked into sex texting online for money but I just can’t do it. I would be so grateful and humbled if I could get help. Even writing this hurts my pride but I feel I have nowhere else to go. Thank you so much for even reading, love Stuck x

Hello there, My name is Amir Huzejrovic. I’m a boy from the Netherlands and I’m 18 years old. Now where shall I begin.. As you can see the title is called “For my mother.”
Let me put most of the history in a few sentences (Please excuse my english).
My mother hailed from Bosnia but because of the war she ended up here. Her brother and father died during that war and my mother came here with nothing but her mother and other brother plus her other sisters. She eventually decided to stay here since her homeland was mostly made even with the ground. She then met my father and soon they bought a house together north of my country. My mom had work and so did my dad. First my brother was born and I followed a year later but the joy already ended real quick. My father got stuck with alcohol and would mistreat my mother and brother but he never laid a finger on me he ended up as an heavy alcoholic. And when I was 4 it was getting really out of hand and my mother left my dad along with my brother and I.
We ended up at my grandma in a town near the city Rotterdam. We lived there for one year and I loved it. And after a year my mom met this dutch man and fell in love. They both also chose a house and moved in together along with my brother and I and my step brother that would come every week for two days.(The son of my dutch dad) And I loved my step dad with all my heart I saw him as a true father and so he was. He never touched us if we misbehaved he would simply be angry and send us to our room and he would simply do the stuff dads do. My younger sister was born from them both. So there were 3 kids in the house and sometimes 4 when my step brother would come. And so I had a beautiful childhood until my 16th.
My mom and he broke up since he decided to cheat on my mother and my mom caught him in the act. I felt my world was burning down to ashes and after a year of tense living together we at long last moved out.
I honestly was depressed and I failed two years of high school but I got a rare third chance since they trusted in me so good for always being such a good student. My brother though dropped out from school and started his career to become a car mechanic but also that ended rather quick. In my new house I in the year 2017 succeeded on my exams and got my degree. My mom though lost her job for a good long time and with luck from above..?She got a new job that would help us good but just good enough so no special traits still living rather tight on money. I hated the fact that we were so low economic wise and decided to take an apprenticeship to become an electrician I did that for one purpose and that was so I also could earn extra money plus aid my mother. But before I started my course I came to know that my mom was in debt from stuff in the past. Something with furniture and also something that had to deal with my real dad and also something of taxes. Together it would reach up to 10k debt and I knew I should work hard to wash that away. I started working in the middle of august during my summer break.
I got my first salary of 1200 euros rounded up and gave 500 to my mom. I had hope until last month September we got the news that my real father was shot point blank and died from his wounds. This was a heavy blow to us specially my mother and brother and after that whole stuff we got back here to the normal life. I work every day except on Tuesdays and sometimes Mondays (and weekends I’m free obviously)because those are the days I have to go to school. Now my salary is 900 a month. My previous salary was 1200 because I started a half month already with nothing but work and that was during my summer break (We needed the money so that’s why I did). So now my own costs are 140 for my health insurance that’s mandatory plus 20 for my phone since I can’t work without data during work a lot of calls will be made. And I also of course want to do fun stuff with my friends and buy food from time to time. so let’s say 900 – 260= 640 I always plan to give my mom at least 300 so 340 left for myself again plus I give to my brother and sister money since my brother only works as a delivery man now and doesn’t earn a lot as well and I don’t want to show my sister that we are tight on money but in fact we are more than just tight.. we are in great debt and I worry about it day in day out and in my eyes an 18 year old shouldn’t be doing. So this is what I ask really I just hope some people read this and are able to help me out even if it would be just 50 or hell even 5 cents that would be all fine since I treasure every cent now. My mother doesn’t have a clue about this so if I reach that 10k or so I want to surprise her with enough money to wash ourselves clean from debt and start a new life without debt. I want to be able to live as a young boy should the same for my sister and brother and specially for MY MOTHER since she has been already through so much and it breaks my heart that she works till late every week and even in the weekends she cleans to earn some extra.. I can’t take it to see her like this any longer and myself am a boy filled with pride so I wouldn’t beg for money and never beg for money from my family. It feels so embarrassing as well and so I want to put an end to it all with the help of hundreds of anonymous good heart having people. I hope this will do for now and I hope my message shall be heard.
My heart goes out to those who will donate I will probably never see nor meet you but thank you none the less.
Hi there, I’m jaleesa. I’m 20 years old with a 3 year old daughter. I Pay $755 for my one bedroom apartment. I also pay this lady whom I know is mean to my child $120 a week to watch her while I work my full time job. When I was 13 my father, who was never around yet still my hero, molested me. At 16 a week before my 17 birthday he raped me. On my 17th birthday I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend for the first time. And a month later I learned I was pregnant. I don’t know who the father is. When my daughter was born I told my boyfriend but I refused to do a paternity test so he left us. I dropped out of highschool got a full time job at what-a-burger and picked up a side job as a heroin addict. A year later my mother put me out her house and I didn’t have any friends left for us to stay with, so called the only other number I knew. My father. We stayed with him 6 months until I was 19. He didn’t know about my daughters paternal situation, and every night of the 6 months we were there he would rape me when he thought I was asleep and all I could do was lay still and pretend to sleep so my baby wouldn’t wake up to it. When I left him I found a 36 yo man on my way home from work, who was just so comforting I felt like I had to tell him what was going on. He immediately offered to house is. So I went home got my daughter and a few bags and we moved in with this stranger. This man over the next few months beat me, set me on fire, set me up to be raped on video, And threatened to sell my daughter. By the grace of god he was arrested and we went to stay in a youth shelter called the covenenant house. I got clean. We got on housing after staying at the shelter for a bit, until my abusive exs brother vandalized our apartment. My land lord was kind enough to not evict. We just couldn’t renew our lease and I lost our housing. So here we are struggling. I have ptsd and it’s a battle for me to get anything done and all my money goes to my daughter and our rent. I can barely afford groceries. I have one pair of shoes that are falling apart, I’m afraid to file for assistance because I feel like my situation is shameful. I’ve been wearing the same clothes for years because I just can’t afford that luxury. My mother thinks I’m disgusting because I had my daughter and her side of the family won’t speak to me. My father can’t come near me or my daughter anymore. And I just need a little help. Please
I am a young mom, recently divorced due to an abusive situation. It was my ex husband’s idea to move here closer to his family but I don’t know anyone in the area because he kept from going out and meeting people, plus I was a stay at home mom so I couldn’t meet people through work. So now I’m in this situation and trying to pull out of it. Got my baby in daycare that the state is paying for while I work and try to go to school to get my degree. He does pay child support but it’s not enough to cover everything. This is the big city and the rent keeps increasing. I don’t know how single parents do it. I’m going to have to get a studio which is still quite a lot here. I need money to help out with rent, utilities bills, diapers(he’s size 5), wipes, and clothing(he’s size 9mo-12mo). My ghetto car is having issues too that need to be fixed but I cant afford it and taking the bus is too dangerous for a single mom with a baby. We’re on food stamps and medicaid but the food stamps will run out in November and I’ll have to reapply which might take a while for me to get food after my food stamps run out this month. We have used all of our food bank visits up and will have to wait. Anything helps. I wish people could send me information on where to get more help with diapers. Charities I’ve been too only give 10 diapers a month and that’s not enough. Thank you to whoever helps. Sorry it was so long.
October 1, 2017
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 resubmit 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.
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 $46,067.89 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.
So, to sum things up …
$5,522.88 – Credit Card Balance as of 09/01/2017
$3,000 – Loan to my mother
$46,067.89 – Payoff Mortgage
$54,590.77 – Total Debt
My goals are:
1) Not losing my house in Foreclosure
2) Not having to file Bankruptcy
3) Pay back my mother
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’m a 25 year old single mum with a beautiful 3 year old boy. I recently fled an abusive relationship with my son and dog in tow. We have been staying with a friend in his one bedroom house. I work as many hours as I can get and have a house lined up for the start of November, I’m doing everything I can to make it on my own. Although I can cover rent with help from benefits i will be moving in to an empty house. This is a private rent, my local council and housing association can’t house me as there just isn’t anywhere for me to go. If I opt for homeless accommodation then they have told me I will be housed wherever there is space and that it won’t be locally. Meaning I can’t get to work. I would love to give my son the best possible start in our new home, I’ve been searching for furniture to salvage where I can but soft furnishings aren’t as easy to come by for free. My son will need a bed and ideally a fully furnished room. I might be pushing my luck here but I’m working myself to death trying to provide with very little support from local services. Any donations for basic furnishings would be greatly appreciated. I don’t have a set budget, I don’t plan on buying new, I simply can’t afford it. Any donations I receive will be spent in charity shops and recycling centres.
Thanks for reading.
First let me begin by thanking anyone who is actually taking time out of their day to read about a perfect strangers problems. We all have problems, we all have a story. I’m certain my struggle is similar to many others. Second I want to apologize that I am in such a low point in my life that I have to resort to begging. I am the kind of woman who wants to do things on my own. I work hard. Excuse me one moment but I have a big chunk of pride stuck in my throat.
My girls and I are currently homeless. Now when I say homeless I don’t mean without a roof over our heads. I mean we have no home of our own. We are temporarily staying with a close friend. We are quiet and respectable, clean and polite. But you must admit, welcoming 1 person into your home is stressful, and we are much bigger then 1. I do what I can to show my appreciation. I cook and I clean and do laundry, the shopping, the bills, the dogs, etc. But I still feel like such a burden! Last night I asked to borrow my friends car to pick up my daughter. During my drive I got pulled over. Apparantly the registration was suspended for no insurance. During my traffic stop the police were attempting to verify that it was in fact insured. While I’m waiting I call my kids to let them know what is going on. I notice another police car pull up. I didn’t think much of it. After quite a long time they asked me to step out of the car. Strange… Well it turns out the registration wasn’t the only thing suspended. I have unknowingly been driving on a suspended license for over 2 years! I politely disagreed until I finally remembered getting a ticket sometime in 2015!
The car was impounded. I was told that they could arrest me but since I was so nice and compliant they chose not to. Thanks be to God! I have never been arrested in my life! Now I am stranded. My cell phone was dead. I got home late late at night. Again thank you God for getting my daughter safely home by her friend.
It’s going to cost $150 plus impound fees, $15 a day for storage plus other misc fees for who knows what. That’s at least $600 plus my ticket I have no idea how much that is that’s Criminal Traffic I’m so upset I don’t know how I’m going to pay for any of this and have money to move out of place I just can’t get ahead that’s why I am asking for help and anything helps everything and makes a difference. thank you so much in advance if you decide to help me. Thank you for reading about my story if nothing else. God bless
Hello, my name is tiffiany an I’m a single mother with 3 amazing children from the ages to 9-3. Have hit rock boat an still of unsure questions and answers. I’m in need of help for getting bills an some things I would like to accomplish,My kids were with me 3 months ago an due to separation my ex was falling threw some bad luck, we he decided he would move in where I resigned. Due to us not getting along I did replace my self from my home an became homeless to this factor, I was around my kids the most of the time no need for me to live there when our marriage was not going anywhere, an I did what I thought could be best for,everyone. Belittle as I knew I helped my ex move out of his mother house, short time frame I let my kids an him stay where I was, which of it turns more into a night mare for me. I didn’t realize by thinking of what was best for everyone could lead me into no family, he took my son 3 hours away. While he had ever which way to get hold of me left my daughter with just people you don’t socialize or even want to be bother. My youngest daughter was taking to the hospital. Meanwhile calling everyone until I finally found her, had just got my oldest that day. I’m not sure how to ask for financial help but I’m desperate in need of help 50 dollars 100 anything will do.
Hello, I am looking for a very special donation for me and my family. I currently am In need of some financial assistance at the moment. I have been looking for a job for over 3 months now, I worked for over 2 years and lost my job in July 2017. I asked for a raise and a few days later I was fired. They told me It was because I didn’t have a valid ID, however My license expired November 2016 and I notified them of this back in December 2016. They never told me It was needed to work so I continued to work and then 8 months later around June 2017 I asked for a raise. I was told that my next paycheck was going to have a big change and 3 days later I was told I couldn’t work. I had to sell my valuables to keep up with my rent and also pay for my kids birthday parties my younger turned 1 and it was very special and my oldest turned 4. I started collecting Unemployment and tired to save up for a new car so that i could be able to go back to work however i fell into so much debt. I tried applying for loans, asking my local DHS office for help with cash assistance and was denied. I even tried calling every church and fundraiser for help and noone seems to have any funds. So im asking for help here. I just need enough to purchase a safe reliable car for me so that I could be able to find a job and travel with my kids. I am also backed up on bills and rent so please help me. I don’t know what else to do and i am very worried.

I am a single mama of 2, a girl 3yrs and a boy 12 yrs. We live in Australia and I came across this site while looking for ways I could afford to complete my qualifications in massage so I can one day open a little therapy room from home. Myself and me children survived a 5 year very emotionally abusive household, when I left, it was with debt and exhaustion. But we now have a little house of our own and it has a perfect back area where I could run a massage room. Rent where I am is quite high and does take 85% of my weekly income, but i’m wanting so much to go back to the job I used to have such passion for, its healing and the positive energy I have felt from the power of massage to others who need it has always given me happiness, when they leave feeling better, relaxed and in less pain, I too feel good. I’m just in need of a hand up, not a hand out, so I can work to support my children, doing something I adore, while still being there for them as much as they need as they grow.
I thank anyone who is willing to help us
I am a young newly divorced single mom with three small children, ages 6 , 4 , and 2. I work full time and receive no state assistance from any program because i do not meet the guidelines due to my gross pay that they take into consideration. My 4 and 6 year old daughters are in school, preK and 1st grade. I am -$38.94 in their lunch account, which means they have eaten 35 dollars worth of lunches on a $0 balance in the account. At $35 the school will only provide a peanut butter sandwich and carton of milk to them for lunch until the entire amount is caught up. I have filed for child support and have an order but my ex husband refuses to pay anything and as soon as I am able to come up with the money I am going to attempt to go back to court to get something changed. I have never asked for help before, and I hate doing this, but I refuse to let my kids go without anything. I get paid on Friday, but until then we have very little food so i am unable to pack a sufficient lunch for them both and only have 8 dollars to my name which i need to buy diapers and wipes with this afternoon (they will eat supper and my 2 yr old son breakfast and lunch during the day which is really all we have at this point and yes i go without but that does not matter to me i usually eat whatever they leave on their plates if anything) and only have 8 dollars to my name which i need to buy diapers and wipes with this evening. I recently (last Monday) totaled my car by hitting a deer while driving home from work and picking up the kids from the sitter, so I am counting on transportation from friends and trying to work with the insurance company on payment for the vehicle and trying to figure out how I am buying new car seats to be reimbursed by the insurance and hate having to use the ones from the accident but will until I am able to purchase new ones (hopefully Friday if I can scrounge up enough after paying the electric so it is not disconnected). I’ve never been rich and do not live beyond my means, but I am really down on my luck right now and the most important thing to me is that my kids have enough to eat. I am not trying to feel sorry for myself or give you a sob story, nor am I sitting here not trying to help my situation ( i pawned all my jewelry to buy our last 50 dollars in groceries on Sunday) and I am working as many hours in my career field (i am a substance abuse and mental health counselor so i cant exactly pick up extra hours, but also work as a gas station attendant part time and i am picking up every shift I can there), but just asking you to consider helping a mom and really kids in need. Please if you are able think about helping us, even if its a dollar, we sincerely appreciate it. I wholeheartedly plan on paying it forward as soon as I am able, and will forever be grateful if anyone chooses to help us. Thank you for taking the time to read this and considering us for your help. Have a great day. XoXo, One Mama and 3 very Thankful kiddos
Hello thanks for reading my request. Its been hard even pushing myself to ask for help online. I need about $4000 or more to help me move back home and cover cost of breaking apt. lease early. My husband passed away last year and this year in 2017 thought it would be good for my kids and I to move closer to my family. Well I did that and its been nothing but a nightmare. First of all my family is no help and only making my kids and I mentally exhausted than we already were. I moved into a place here and now we are all alone and want to go back home but that is over 900 miles away. I have family on husbands side there but they cannot financially help me get back. I understand it was a mistake moving back home near my family after 10 yrs only to be talked down to and told to get over husbands death which was a suicide in front of me. Also told my kids to get over him and move on. Mentally living here for kids and I is not good. Along with that the town I am in there is no real help for widows and single moms. I lost everything with first place I moved into due to place had bed bugs coming out of wood panel because last renters never reported having bed bugs. I hate it here where I am at and so do my kids. I need help financially to be able to make it back to where kids and I call home and back near where husbands resting place is. Any help is greatly appreciated as I have nobody to turn too for any help. I could go on and on about the awful things that I have been going through as it never seems to stop. I just really want to move back where I called home and be at peace with my kids and have my mind at ease. Tried to add picture of my girls and I but keep getting error message.
Hello and thank you for taking the time to hear my story.. I was a police officer for 17 years when I was wrongfully accused of insurance fraud.. There is an attorney who works for a certain city I use to work for who number one hates females and number two hates me. He told me back in 2010 if he had anything to do with it I would never work in the city again. Needless to say 5 years later, he made it happen.. The city I worked for is notorious for taking care of who they like. I have never been in trouble or written up the 12 years there, but I was obviously one they didn’t have my back for. I was legitimately hurt at work with injuries. This attorney was able to have four felony charges placed on me in 2015. I was fired from my job in 2016. Later that year, three of the four charges were dropped as there wasn’t evidence to support it. The last charge I took to trial and was found not guilty. The DA who prosecuted me even told my attorney this is political… I realize bad things happen to good people to make us stronger.. Boy has it. During the time I was off up until the time I was vindicated I had to use my 401k, credit cards etc as I had to take care of my family… Now that I have been vindicated I’ve been trying to fight for my job back with no end in sight… I’ve taken any job I can to pay my bills but it’s not enough… Dropping my pay to $0 while going through trial and now it’s about 5x less what I was making as a police officer. I’m so far in debt, about $70,000 all my money is going to the minimums, mortgage and car… I hate having to tell my girls I get things for them. I know there are good people who are willing to help me. Even if it’s a loan that I can consolidate all my bills that will help immensely.. I’m paying over $2000 a month in debt. I can pay $600-$1000 a month on a loan. I’m a good person, I love my girls and I deserve this opportunity because I was treated unfair and I still am by the city, police department. Thank you for your time.. Godbless

I am twenty-two years old, I have a three year old son and also am 36 weeks pregnant with a girl. I graduated from college and am a Registered Medical Assistant. I started working for a local prison last October and made good money. I found out I was pregnant in February, I also found out that my baby was not growing right and after many, many invasive and non-invasive tests I was diagnosed with IUGR and placed on strict bed rest. Causing me to have to leave work, luckily I can return to work November first, but my job is about 37 miles away from my home. I am here begging for money to please help me buy a cheap reliable car to not only make it to doctor appointments for my little girl but also to make it to work when I must go back because I need to help support my children. We are currently living and barely making it by with a fixed income right now and I cannot afford to keep fixing the car we have. In this year alone I have scraped up any money I could to fix this car. Both engine heads, a radiator, the fuel line, repairs for a car accident I got into on my way home from work in November last year the day before Thanksgiving, somehow I managed to pay to fix the transmission two times! And just recently the car will not start and it is now the wiring. I do not have money to fix it, I barely have pennies. Borrowing money I could barely repay, being late on rent several times, making payment arrangements on bills, and sometimes only having enough for my son to eat and me having to go without even though I am pregnant because I could barely afford to put food in my fridge. I do not qualify for state assistance, I do not qualify for disability I have been denied by both. I am begging for help. Please, help me. I can’t qualify for a loan, the weather is starting to get colder the last thing I want is to have to walk to appointments risking both my children’s health. I do not have family to help me, I have asked friends who also say they cannot help me. I need a car, I need to be able to safely take my son to daycare, my daughter to her doctor appointments when she is born, and to safely get to work and make money to keep this roof over our heads and electricity and gas on as well as put food in our mouths. Thank you for reading all of this, I would really appreciate help.
Hi, I am a 25 year old mother of two beautiful children. A 6 year old boy and a 1 year old girl. I have recently found myself in some debt that I just can’t seem to get out of. I sold my car so I wouldn’t have a car payment anymore, and have been able to work out most of my life financially. But I still have one bill that is worrying me and that is my credit card. I was naïve when I signed up for it. I originally got it for a surgery, but ended up being able to pay for it. So I kept it as a “just in case of emergency” card, but then emergencies started happening more and more often. I needed gas and didn’t have enough money, I needed to pay another bill or an office visit, a prescription that wasn’t covered by insurance.. Just little things here and there that have added up and now I can’t seem to get ahead of the interest amounts. I am sick to my stomach thinking of this bill hanging over me and being unable to afford it. I stay up at night, and it has taken a toll on my stress and anxiety levels. I have taken out my 401k and after that I still owe $3,000 to pay off my card. Which to some people I’ve learned seems small, but for a mother of two, it’s a lot. I know this is a very long shot, but please.. Anything could help. I know it was my poor choices that got me here, but everyone makes bad choices and I’m just praying that someone will be able to help me because I’m not sure what else to do. I can’t get my mind off of how good it will feel to be out from this debt and away from credit cards. Thank you for reading my story.
Thank you for taking time to read my message.
I am in my late 30s. I live my life for my two children. One is grown and the other is 15. I spent their entire childhood giving them all of my time. As they got older I looked forward to all the milestones. Yes…even the teenage years. When things seemed hard, I thought my lil family of 4 would make it threw anything. 2012 my (then) husband of 20 years (met at 14/15 years old) left. He had met someone. I was dispatching for 911 at the time and picked up the pieces and moved from our quaint home to an apt in a rough city, as it was all I could afford. Things were hard but I had my children and that was my happiness. I then met a great guy in 2013 who had us move in with him on his farm. Things were getting even better and my life felt so whole again. Kids were loving the 4 wheeling, trails, hikes, etc.
June of 2014 my boyfriend was killed in a dirt bike accident. It was the worst thing I had ever been threw (until now). I do not even want to revisit what myself and my children went threw. Those two amazing kids were still the push I needed. I pulled myself back up. At this time I could only afford a small place and the kids began staying primarily with their father. It is so hard to have been the one to put them to bed each night for years just to have them pulled away because of finances. I’ve since got a job that was more stable. I have gone threw 2 apartments. Both cases landlords were selling. I am currently staying with my father….yes…late 30s back at home. While my son is grown, my daughter is 15 and at a very difficult age for a girl. She cannot stay at my fathers with me because he is bipolar and can be very cruel and she cannot handle being there for long periods of time. There are very bizarre rules that change constantly. I have been saving but feel I take one step forward and get thrown 5 steps back. Of all the things I have gone threw in my life, not being able to see my daughter much is the worst pain of all. I know she will be grown soon and out of the house but the time I do have with her before she is grown is so precious and it is killing me not to have her while I can. I’m not looking for someone to take care of me, I am only asking for a little help. I have had to reset my life 4 times in 5 years. No amount is too small and prayers are also accepted.

I am a 26 year old mother of 4. My children’s father went to jail for domestic violence against me and he has not been in our lives since. It has been over two years. During that time I lost my job and resorted to food stamps and my m other helping me to pay bills for a while. Not being able to afford day care for four children in the summer I eventually was put out of my home because I couldn’t hold two jobs without assistance from my mom 24/7. My children eventually went into care of the state and they are now with their grand mother of the father. He still is not in their lives. I moved to Houston, Tx to try to get on my feet but once the Hurricane was said to come through I was offered to come stay with my mother before it hit and I left. I didn’t know I would not be able to return. I was saving up for my apartment which I got approved for and now those apartments are ruined. I am now staying with my mother in Atlanta, Ga. I have used up all my savings to assist her with bills. And I am consistently going to court to get my children back. I miss them so badly and they have been begging me to bring them home. I have done everything required of me by the state to get my kids back but I have not obtained a job yet. I am still job searching. I am optimistic and I know it is just taking some time. But the last time I went to court I was told I need to obtain a vehicle safe enough to transport my children back and forth even if they come home to my mothers home. Ultimately, the system wants me to acquire my own home and my own vehicle. That is my goal and I have only 45 days left. I have to show progress in the attainment of at least one. I am a good mother who loves her children, disciplines through love and makes sure my children are well educated. Sometimes my childrens grandmother doesn’t let me see my children. She has never liked me because I have asked her for help when her son abused us. I am praying that someone out here will find it in their heart to help reunite a good mother with her children. If you have any questions I don’t mind answering. Anything is better than nothing in this goal. I have 4 small boys ages 7,6,3,and 2. We love each other dearly. The most crushing thing is the nightmares and telling them I will see them later. No good mother should have to tell their children they will see them later. Please help us be whole again. I cannot loose my babies. They are my heart.
Let me start by saying I am not one to ask for hand outs, however I have reached nothing but dead ends trying to solve my crisis.
I am a 29 year old single mother to two girls ages 10 and 3. We live with my disabled mother. I have a full time job which usually helps us scrape by month to month. However, the past month I caught pnuemonia which caused me to miss a lot of work. We have no food in the house, every bill is behind and threatening to be cut off, and I’m hoping and praying I have enough gas to make it to work this week.
I know there are lots of other people with worse situations. But I’ve tried everything. I’ve gotten extensions on everything I can, some I won’t even make it by those dates. I’ve tried applying for loans only to be turned down, I’ve tried giving plasma only to be turned down cause they can’t find my veins, I pawned/sold everything I could lately just to feed my girls, I have no family or friends that I could ask for help from. Even though I’ve gotten better and able to return to work, it will be another 2 1/2 weeks before I get a decent paycheck and be able to get some kind of caught up on bills. The problem is I don’t have that long. I need help by Thursday 9/21/17 or my car will be repossessed. This is my family’s only form of transportation, and my only way to work. Without this car I will lose my job and lose everything. I’m terrified and worried so sick that I can’t sleep at night. I am a very hard working person and I do everything I can to take care of my girls and my mother.
I hope someone can understand my situation and help if at all possible. We can’t afford to lose everything because I got sick and couldn’t get caught up in time. Anything at all will help, thank you for taking the time to read this. Thank you in advance for anyone who can help and god bless you.
15 years ago I began hanging out with a bad group of people, as a result I was introduced to all sorts of different drugs and going out drinking every weekend. Addiction runs in my family so I guess I was already predispositioned and before I knew it I couldn’t function without my drugs. I swore that I would never stick a needle in my arm but when the eight to 10 pills I was taking a day we’re no longer even keeping me from being sick I gave in, that is when my life really went to hell. I have not signed the year 2002 and I hoped that that would keep me from using because I was so excited to be a mother, but when your body is so physically addicted that you can’t get out of the bed without it you can’t be a mother anyway so I continue down this path of destruction. And to say I suffered the consequences is an understatement to make a long story short I always had a man in the picture telling me what to do and because I needed my drugs so badly I did whatever I was told. This ended up resulting in me spending six years of my life in prison. During those years I did a lot of soul searching and praying and I swore the days of drug use were over. I was released from prison April 1st 2015 with high hopes for myself. But the disease of addiction is extremely powerful and before I knew it I was taking pills again but this time I found something new, meth. This drug took me to a place I never thought I would go, it took my soul and nearly took my life. I remember the very last night I used I was sitting in the car in my driveway contemplating suicide because I knew there was no way I could go on living like this anymore but I also had no clue how to stop. Fortunately God stepped in and did for me what I could not do for myself I ended up in the hospital on suicide watch and then they took me to a treatment facility. During those 28 days I learned why I use drugs to escape reality and I learned how to deal with my issues without having to numb myself. After treatment I applied for an Oxford House which is a sober living house where I had five other roommates and this was the absolute best decision I ever made. I learned how to do things that I never knew how to do even though I should have known considering of an adult. I worked my first real job, pay bills and even learned how to do laundry for the first time. I know that sounds kind of funny but it’s the truth. But the most important thing I gained was the trust of my son he is now 14 years old and he’s seen and been through a lot. When he looks at his mother now he looks at me with complete adoration, he’s overprotective of me and probably a little strangely too attached to his mother but I love it so much. My time in the Oxford House ran out about 3 days ago, I’m 6 months sober and 36 years old. So now I’m starting from complete scratch I have all the tools to stay clean and to become a responsible functioning member of society I just need that little boost to get started my goal is to get an apartment for my son and I and my own car to get myself to and from work and him to school. I never complain because it could be so much worse but because of the choices I made and the record that I have good jobs are impossible to come by. Obtaining all of my goals on a waitress salary it’s just not happening. I would eventually like to go back to school but at the time it’s just not possible because I have to work and I have no extra time. I honestly never thought I would be on a website begging for donations but whatever it takes to ensure that my son has the life he deserves I’ll do whatever I need to do. I just want to say God bless anyone who is reading this right now even if you don’t choose to help thank you for being a part of my story. PayPal.me/fre3dom16
Please support my neighbor Linja Kokka to restore her home!
Hi, I’m Maigo Beaven, and first of all I’d like to apologize for my poor english language and I will use the google translator for this purpose. I’m a neighbor of this family. I would tell a little about this family. Linja is a single mother and grows three children. Linya’s husband, Zaran, went swimming six months ago, and no longer came back, he sank.
This family lives in a small house with a small kitchen and two bedrooms, but there is no toilet and shower room. The house is currently totally ineligible, old electric wiring, no hot water. Before Zaran died, they planned to renovate the house, but this tragedy shattered plans. Lifelong improvement is now no longer possible, since family income is barely enough to pay taxes and teach children.
I, as their neighbor, can not look at such a thing, I have gathered 10 people from our community who can help them, but unfortunately it is not enough. We can help this family with the renovation of this house, but for this we do not have the funds to do this. I appeal to you all to improve the quality of life this family so that children can enjoy a wonderful childhood.
