Hi I am a single mother of 4 one of which has autism. I am very reluctantly trying this as I don’t usually ask for help like this. I was in a bad relationship with my Ex, he was verbally abusive , cheating , and doing meth behind my back. So I took the kids and left. We luckily found a homeless shelter but I really need transportation to get to Dr appointments and activities at kids school. I am desperate at this point. Please if you can find it in your heart to help I would be forever greatful.i found a SUV but they wanted 5,000 for it. I dont have a set number I need ,I just need transportation desperately as well as down payment on apartment when I find one. Thank you in advance. God bless you and stay safe. My PayPal is paypal.me/jmbsr2020 thank you thank you thank you.
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.
Dear kind hearts,
In the messy mosaic of life, I find myself entwined in a story that I never imagined writing. As a mom to my incredible brood of five, teens to tots, navigating the daily challenges of homeschooling, I’ve hit a storm that I’m struggling to weather.
The aftermath of a heart-wrenching divorce has left me not just searching for a job but clinging to the fraying edges of financial stability. Juggling the needs of my five children, I’ve reached a desperate juncture. My credit card, stretched to its $4000 limit, is a lifeline hanging by a thread, barely holding together the fragments of our daily existence.
The looming specter of unpaid rent, bills piling up like an insurmountable mountain, and the pressing need for food on the table have become a relentless struggle. Amidst this chaos, my fourth child’s dental needs are another weight on my shoulders, a responsibility I’m determined to meet.
Transportation, the overlooked lifeline of everyday life, is now a luxury I can ill afford. As I navigate the tumultuous waters of this chapter, the desperate need for a fresh start echoes louder than ever. The financial gap yawns wider than my current circumstances can bridge.
I’m reaching out with an earnest plea for support, not just for the immediate necessities but for a lifeline that can help us pivot into a future free from the shadows of our present challenges. I’m not asking for $6000; I’m laying bare the reality that $50,000 to $100,000 would be a game-changer for my children and me.
Your generous contribution would not only rescue us from the throes of desperation but pave the way for a brighter tomorrow. Every dollar, every kind word, every gesture of support would be a beacon of hope in our darkest hour.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for considering our plea and being a light in our journey. Your support means more than words can convey, and we are immensely grateful for any and all assistance you can offer. And when I make it over to the other side of this circumstance I would be sure to give back to those in similar circumstances as I am anticipating being assisted🙏
With heartfelt gratitude,
A Resilient Mom Rebuilding with 5 Little Hearts
I, Nicole, navigate the complexities of life as a single mother and face a constant financial struggle. The pain of losing my 19-year-old daughter lingers, making each day a poignant reminder of the challenges life throws our way. Being handicapped adds an extra layer of difficulty, especially when it comes to accessing vital medical care. Living paycheck to paycheck with my 11-year-old son, I find myself in a predicament where a scooter could be a game-changer. This isn’t just about convenience; it’s a lifeline to get me to the hospital and doctors. Without it, I’m left stranded, unable to secure the healthcare I desperately need. So, I turn to you, sharing my story in the hope that you might lend a helping hand. A scooter is not a luxury but a necessity for my well-being. I humbly ask for your support, urging anyone who resonates with my struggles to consider making a donation. Through Cash App or PayPal, I aim to raise $2000.00 to purchase the scooter that could change the course of my life. Your contribution, no matter how small, becomes a beacon of hope for me and my son. It’s a chance to break free from the financial constraints that hold us back and embrace a future with renewed optimism. I believe in the kindness of strangers and the power of collective empathy. Your generosity can be the key to unlocking a brighter tomorrow for my son and me. Thank you for taking the time to read my plea, and I sincerely hope you can be a part of this transformative journey.

In the intricate tapestry of my life, I find myself in the role of a struggling mom, grappling with the relentless pursuit of a successful and stable life for myself and my two precious children. Currently immersed in a free cyber security GRC course, I am passionately paving my way into the tech world, aiming for a career that not only aligns with my interests but also promises a brighter future for us. However, the harsh reality is that I am hindered by financial constraints, unable to afford the exam fees or meet the demands of everyday bills. My temporary respite at my mother’s home is drawing to a close, with a looming three-month deadline to find a place of our own.
My days are a juggling act of gig work, from DoorDash to various driving gigs, yet the financial returns are insufficient to secure a stable living arrangement for my children and me. Despite my entrepreneurial efforts in a business that faced the challenge of sluggish sales due to limited resources for marketing, I had to pivot back to employment to ensure the well-being of my family. In this pursuit of stability, I am now navigating the complexities of a tech career, driven by the desire to find fulfillment in my work.
At 35, I carry the weight of responsibility for a 12-year-old son and a 3-year-old daughter. My deepest fear is the prospect of having my children without a roof over their heads while I grapple to secure a place for us. The struggle intensifies as I strive to provide a better life for my family. In my pursuit of certification, I am actively engaged in CompTia Network and Security+, envisioning a future in cyber security that holds the promise of stability and growth.
Asking for financial assistance is not just about securing a place to live; it is an investment in my future and that of my children. The funds sought will not only cover the 12 months’ rent but also extend to essential needs, including furniture for our new home and study materials crucial for excelling in my courses. Additionally, I am burdened by a dental issue causing excruciating toothaches, a problem exacerbated by the lack of insurance or means to afford necessary treatment.
With the support I seek, I aim to transform our lives, breaking free from the shackles of financial instability. The envisioned outcome is not just a secure living space but a foundation for my children and me to thrive. Your generosity will contribute not only to a roof over our heads but also to a fulfilling career, ensuring that my children witness the strength of determination and resilience in the face of adversity.

I recently completed a fellowship and had to relocate for a permanent position 12 hours away from my home state. My first day of work, my car went out. It’s a 14 year old Hyundai with 200,000 + miles. Due to paying for my move out of pocket and being a single parent, I cannot afford to fix it or get a new car at the moment. However, I need a vehicle to get back and forth to work as well as take my child to school. I do not know anyone in the area and my mother is on a fixed income back home. I don’t need anything fancy, just something that will get me from point A to B.
Dear compassionate hearts,
My name is Jessica, and I’m reaching out in a time of desperate need for my 15-year-old son, Nino. He has been battling a challenging condition called arterial venous malformation since birth, requiring 10 surgeries already, with more ahead. Our only hope is a specialized doctor in New York who has the expertise to help Nino.
As a single mom, the financial strain has become overwhelming, compounded by the hardships of COVID. I’ve been unable to work, and we’re currently facing eviction, making the fear of homelessness all too real for me and my son.
I humbly ask for your support and generosity to ensure Nino receives the vital treatment he needs. Your contributions will not only impact his health but also prevent us from losing our home. Every donation, no matter the size, brings us closer to securing a future for Nino.
Thank you for your kindness and consideration during this incredibly challenging time.

Dear Beautiful humans ❤️
I am writing to you with a heavy heart and hope in search of support during a particularly challenging period in my life. My name is Carla and I am a single mother of four wonderful children, currently living in QLD Australia. Unfortunately, four months ago, my partner left us due to having an affair and is now living with this woman in a different town. This abrupt change has left me in a dire financial situation.
Since my partner’s departure, I have been left to shoulder all household expenses, including rent, utilities, car, loan payment and the cost of food, clothes, school fees and sports fees for my children, on my own. To complicate matters further, I have not received any form of child support, which has made it exceedingly difficult to provide for my family’s basic needs. I am currently going through the system to gain child support from my children’s father, this however takes time. It is very heart breaking to know the father of my children can abandon his responsibilities as a father without a care in the world. My children are unaware of the actions their father has made and I am unable to bring myself to tell them as they love and respect their father. They are already dealing with the fact he has walked out on his family, so the last thing they need is more heartache.
I am employed full-time as a Duty manager working day and night shifts but my income is simply not enough to cover our living expenses and the debts that have accumulated over the past few months. I have made every effort to cut costs, manage our budget, and seek additional work, but the financial burden is overwhelming. I am now at a point where I must seek assistance to ensure that my children have a stable home, food to eat, and access to the necessities of life.
It is with a humble heart that I reach out for help. I am in need of rental assistance as I have fallen behind in payments and financial aid. Any support you can provide would be a lifeline for us during this difficult time. My rent is currently $600AUD per week and I am 1 month behind :( My landlord has been very helpful during this difficult time, however rent is still needing to be paid.
I am determined to provide for my children and give them the care and stability they deserve. Your assistance can make a significant difference in our lives, and I would be endlessly grateful for your support and understanding.
For some time now, I have been actively pursuing employment opportunities in the disability and elderly support sector. This field is something I am deeply passionate about, as I find great fulfillment in caring for others and contributing positively to the lives of individuals who need it the most and I believe that everyone deserves dignity, respect, and the opportunity to live a full and enriched life, and I am committed to making that a reality. This line of work also fits in with my work schedule and the hourly rate is very good. Which will help me support my family financially. This unfortunately comes at a cost associated with this job, that includes necessary certifications, training, and other employment-related expenses, which I am unable to meet. The cost to be able to work as a Support worker is going to cost me $500.
I have sought support from my family, but they too are facing their own financial challenges and, despite their best intentions, are unable to provide the help I need. It is a difficult admission to make, as I have always endeavored to be the one offering support and generosity to those around me. Now, I find myself in the unfamiliar and humbling position of being the one in need of assistance.
Thank you sincerely for taking the time to read this and for considering my request. I look forward to a favorable reply and kind donation. I am hopeful that with your help, we can navigate through this challenging period.
I am needing help with one month’s rent to avoid eviction, amounting to $2400. As well as seeking assistance with covering expenses related to obtaining necessary certifications, training/work cards, and other employment-related costs, totaling $500. This assistance would significantly contribute to my ability to achieve financial stability.
Hello my name is Kimberly and I’m asking this for my daughter who is a single mother of 3 beautiful girls ages 7, 3 & 2. My daughter is in the middle of a divorce and it’s getting ugly. Her husband who is an alcoholic and abusive hired an attorney to make things harder on my daughter because she went and applied for emergency temporary custody of their 3 girls and the judge granted it to her which made him furious therefore he hired an attorney. He knows my daughter doesn’t have money for an attorney cause she’s living in her own apartment working and taking care of her 3 daughters. The oldest daughter has Autism and my daughter has her in a school just for Autistic kids where she’s doing real good . My daughter took the time to research all the different schools to make sure she was in the best school for her because she wants her to succeed and have somewhat of a normal life and this was all my daughter’s doing. She loves her girls and wants nothing but the best for them. As do I they are my granddaughters. The reason my daughter is asking for emergency temporary custody is because the girls dad went over to my daughter’s place while the girls were there and pulled out a gun cocked it back and pointed it at her while he was arguing with her outside in the parking lot. My granddaughter was watching this through her bedroom window. He doesn’t take care of the girls like he should he’s just doing this to hurt my daughter. He won’t give them baths and the last time he had the girls my daughter called to see how they were doing and he wouldn’t let her talk to them and with this attorney that he has he’s asking for 4days out of the week to have them and he works those days so he’ll have his mom watch them. Now the girls don’t really know his mom because she chose not to be in their lives because they are half white and half Mexican and she doesn’t like my daughter because she’s Mexican. His own mother even testified against him because his other 2 kids that he has from another lady before he got with my daughter did not want to go over to their place anymore , this is while my daughter was still with him, cause he drinks all the time and agrees and fights with my daughter. So his baby momma took him to court to stop visits because the kids didn’t want to go over there anymore . So his own mother even testified against him and therefore the baby momma won her case. And now that my daughter is no longer with him she is back on his side helping him with this case just because she never liked my daughter because she’s Mexican. My daughter was with this man for almost 10yrs and in the beginning they were arguing cause he was drunk and had his gun pointing it at the 2 dogs they had and my daughter yelled at him to stop pointing it at them and he turned around and shot her in the foot she called me crying late at night telling me that she needed me to take her to the hospital cause he had just shot her in the foot and he wouldn’t take her to the hospital cause he was afraid of getting in trouble. All he thinks about is himself and my daughter deserves to have representation when she goes to court tomorrow. The attorney wants 1500 which is the retainer fee just to get started. My daughter has 1000 but that’s her rent money and I don’t want her to lose her place that she has gotten for herself and her daughters and I don’t have but 100 to my name and I live with my boyfriends family. An she desperately needs this attorney. So if you could please help her out we would be greatly appreciative. I don’t want him to take them girls away from her just because he was able to ask his dad for money for an attorney and my daughter couldn’t this would devastate not only the girls but my daughter and I as well being that I go over there to spend time with them per their request them girls love me cause I’ve been there their whole lives. Please help us and anything we can do to pay it forward we will do. Thank you for listening. May God Bless you !!!

I am trying to pay off some bills/car loan so I can start to save money to get my own place with my four-year-old son. I am a teacher and have gotten myself into such a financial hole since my husband relapsed. When I met him he was great, headstrong, and did share his past issues with me. Once we were married, the demons came out. I have spent the entirety of my marriage trying to forgive, give support, and do everything to save what was left of “us.” It is with a heavy heart to have started the divorce process (online uncontested divorce, only 475 left to pay!). He is toxic and I just need to get myself away from living under the same roof. Any help at all is appreciated and will go toward bills.

Hello good people,
Let me tell you our story. My name is Lucie and I am a single mom raising a child. My son’s name is Liam, he is 11 years old and we live in Prague, Czech Republic. We lost my husband Dani (Liam’s dad) four years ago to leukemia. Dani was an American, and he had his cancer treatment in the USA, so we went there with Liam to be with him for the final days. I married Dani just two weeks before he passed away. He was the love of my life. Liam was 7 years old by that time. After that, we moved back to Prague, Czech Republic, because I can earn a living here, working as a manager of custom marionettes production. I earn just enough to pay the bills and take care of Liam. Dani never had any official income in the Czech Republic (he was a musician and earned his living on tours in the US), so I cannot claim any financial support for me as a widow or for Liam. My family cannot support me financially, but my mother is a great granny to him, so I appreciate that. My father (Liam’s dad) is absent. So it’s basically just Liam and I :-)
After we came back to the Czech Republic, Liam started 2nd grade and things went downward fairly quickly. After he suffered the trauma of losing his dad he developed a severe emotional disorder (I believe in the US it is classified as DMDD – in the Czech Republic we don’t have that category yet) which led to constant anger outbursts and a deep depression. I started taking Liam to therapies right away and we attended several hospitalizations at psychiatric institutions. It’s been the hardest three years of my life. Seeing your child suffer, being singled out from all activities with children, being attacked all the time, and grief… Liam was forced to change the school. The authorities suggested a school for children with special needs. We didn’t have a choice, because Liam’s outbursts were dangerous to other children and adults. The school was okay for those intense years because Liam was in a small collective and he had the assistance he needed. However, as he’s getting older, his condition is also getting better and I am looking for a different school for him. Liam is a very smart, kind, and talented boy and I believe he deserves to attend a school where he will feel comfortable, and safe and won’t be surrounded by children with much more severe mental disorders or children who come from very bad social circles. 90% of regular schools are full these days. Since the war in Ukraine started, we have had many refugees in the Czech Republic, and the public schools are packed with children, so it’s almost impossible to find a different school for Liam. However, I found an option that I think is great for my son. It is a private school that is focused on art (Art is Liam’s favorite activity), there is a small collective, and it has many good reviews from parents as well as students. It’s more like a family environment type of school. This school charges 2850 USD (65.000 CZK) school fees per year. The name of the school is ZŠ Métis. Liam starts the 6th grade in September, so it is four years ahead of him. I strongly believe he deserves a school where he’ll be able to grow, study, and feel safe. I wish I was able to fund all that but as I mentioned above I do what I can to provide for him and it is not always easy with only one income.
I believe Liam should have a chance to overcome the tragedy of losing his dad and start a new chapter in a school that would suit his needs and support his talents.
I do appreciate every act of help or support. I still believe in humanity and people with good hearts. If it wasn’t for Liam, I would never ask for support. I am simply fighting for my child’s future. I am deeply grateful for any sign of kindness.
Thank you for reading our story. I am open to sharing more details, pictures, and stories we have been through. Lucie.firstname.lastname@example.org
