I am a single mom of two amazing young boys. After over 2 years of staying with their father through his multiple suicide threats and physical and mental abuse, I finally called the police when he attempted to kill me. At the time I was running my own company from home. I got behind on work and soon realized I could not care for both kids and run the business. We moved in with a friend temporarily, while I started a new job and got back on my feet and got them into school. A few months in, after him being intoxicated and getting into a fight, I was sexually assaulted but had nowhere to go. Unfortunately due to my children’s emotional needs and physical issues, I missed too much work and lost my job. Finally we found someone that would take us in while again I got back on my feet. Unfortunately, after only a month, they have turned into a controlling and manipulative situation and we are being told to leave again. I am currently just now re-starting my job search but we are briefly out of cash. I’m trying to save up to get us our own place, as well as get the kids some winter clothes. Our vehicle broke down 2 months ago and we are currently borrowing a good samaritan’s vehicle but even time on that is limited. I have a Bachelor’s degree and strong work ethic. I want to show my children that they can rise above their circumstances, but unfortunately I am having trouble doing that alone and I don’t have family that can help. I am not looking for anything major. Even just a couple of dollars to put gas in the car to get them to school would be amazing. I’ve never asked for anything in my life and this is taking every ounce of humility for me to do…but I believe in goodness and faith and hope that maybe anyone at all could help, even just a tiny bit. Thanks so much and God bless.
