Help a Single Mother of Two Keep Her Home

Single Mother crowdfunding at GoFundMe

Motherhood is a gift that I don’t take lightly. My two sons are precious to me, and their well-being is the first thing that I think of when I wake up every morning. Keeping them safe, clean, well-fed and healthy shapes my day! Fortunately, they are thriving. At nine and thirteen years old, they are bright, inquisitive, outgoing, sensitive and caring young boys.

The only problem I have – and it’s a serious problem – is trying to stay financially afloat. My children’s father is not in the picture, and my relatives are not in the position to help me. Despite my attempts to patch together working and caring for my children at the same time, I have reached a point where I have been threatened with eviction from our home.

It’s a situation that has escalated quickly and I now have no recourse than to reach out for help. My anxiety level is so high that it’s difficult to think clearly and come up with solution alone. I work in the customer service industry, but while I’m very good at what I do, it is not a job that pays well. I have explored other avenues for help to no avail, and I only have a week before we will be evicted!! I desperately need $15,000 to bring me up-to-date and pay my back expenses. Once those obligations are paid, I will be able to maintain the payments on our home because I now have additional income as a resource.

United States is one of the wealthiest countries in the world, but not everyone has access to that wealth. I know that I’m not alone in my situation and that there are single mothers across the nation who share my plight. In fact, 38% of children in Dallas (where I live) are living in a single parent household. Many of their mothers are one paycheck away from homelessness.

Providing a stable home for my children is my highest priority. I find it hard to ask for help, because I am self-sufficient by nature, and I am embarrassed about my vulnerability.

I’m posting this campaign with the hope that my plea for help will be heard. Please give what you can spare – any amount will help. Please also share my campaign with your family, friends, and colleagues and on your social media channels.

I deeply appreciate your kindness and support!
