Working Single Mother Needs Help to Move Forward – Need 16.19 – Goal Met!
raised of a $500.00 goal
We alert you today of a working mother of three children that is in serious need of a helping hand. We have been working with this mother for several weeks and she attends one of our local church partners. She was laid off from her job in January and remained unemployed until the last week of February. After she gained employment she needed to attend training, which was not full-time pay, and spent all of March attending the required training. She is now working full-time at $11 per hour, but she is short on her rent.
She receives very sporadic and small child support payments, but can not depend on those payments. We waited until the last possible minute to alert this need in hopes that the father of the three children would be able/willing to help this single mother. He has not provided any support and the rent is now late.
Her rent is $750 total per month and she has $368 to her name. The apartment complex has agreed to waive late fees if we are able to pay her rent this week. She gets paid tomorrow and could use her entire paycheck to pay the rent, but then she would be left completely broke for the next two weeks and her 10, 8, and 2 year old children are depending on her.
We would like to help her get her feet under her again by helping her pay a portion of her rent. We are confident she can provide for herself going forward.
