In Need

Requesting: $500

Location: Saint Petersburg, FL



My family and I just moved here from Indiana with my boyfriend and two young boys. I was able to find a job but my boyfriend is not having much luck. I need to raise about $900+ to get our rent caught up and utilities and I am struggling. It's been hard enough to keep my head a float without him working and trying to keep food on my table. I am in desperate need of help.

I owe my rent and my utilites are behind. I fear for disconnect and they wont work with me and help extend my bills to give me a little more time. I am only paid twice a month on the 5th and 20th. This makes it difficult to survive when you have 4 people living in the home. We moved here from Indiana as last year we had a VERY tough year, I had a lost a cousin in April, my boyfriends father in May, his mother in July, his Aunt in September and then to top it off my oldest son's teacher was killed in the explosion in Indiana last Novemeber. We have had a very tough time and just tried to get a fresh start at life. If I can just get myself caught up on all my bills and everything is current that is due for June or July than I would be able to take care of all my bills myself. I have had to pawn my grandmothers wedding ring along with all my jewelry and computers. I am doing everything I can to survive but still seem to be struggling. If someone would find it in their heart to help a VERY needy family that has only the standards of trying to succeed and be a happy family after the tragedies that occurred in our lives last year.

I have been doing a lot of research to find somewhere that I may be able to get some sort of assistance with my rent and utilites. I have tried different churches and other organizations who are out of funds. I happen to come accross this website and decided why not give it a try. I am a single mother of two small boys, I receive no help from their biological father. It has been a constant battle for child support which he is around 45,000 behind and Indiana has done nothing to help me retrieve anything from him. Over the last year my family and I have had a series of terrible events happen that has been very traumatizing and depressing. I lost my job just before Mother's Day last year and my boyfriend was working out of town, he came home to surprise his mother. We got a call that his dad was having a massive heart attack and needed to go to the hospital asap. After an hour of fighting with him we finally got him there, he passed away a couple days later. My boy friends mother was a kidney dialysis patient. She was my best friend, the one who would help me or talk me through any problem I would have and help with a solution, she had just turned 60 and remarried after being divorced 12 years from my boyfriends father. Less than 3 weeks after her birthday and wedding she passed away too. His aunt being sick with cancer also passed 3 weeks after his mom (they were sisters). So already struggling through the deaths of the ones close to us, we get a call on cold Sunday November morning that my sons teach Mrs. Longworth had been killed in a terrible accident. I was completely unaware as to what they were talking about until I turned the news on. There was a house that was a half mile down the road that the homeowner had tried to blowup for insurance money. Not only did she blow her own house up she blew up my son's teacher's home; killing her, her husband and their family dog. It was a very terrible and tragic thing to have to deal with. We moved to Florida for a fresh start and had been doing very well up until the last month. It's been very hectic and we are still trying to deal with everything that has happened to us. My rent is due for this month, my electric was due the beginning of July, my water is $30 past due plus the current bill, my phone was due the 1st of July. I am just really struggling and hope that someone out there will find it in their heart to please help a family in need that's trying to come out of a MAJOR depression.
