We are in an EMERGENCY need! Our rent is due now, and ALL our utilities are due to be cut off within the next few days. Our family of 5 is in panic mode. It is also time for back to school supplies for our 3 kids which we have no money for. Our family is not the type to ask for help, but we have suffered unimaginable heartache as a family over the course of the past few years and are just trying to get back on our feet. I am asking for help towards paying our rent which is $850 to keep us from losing a place to live yet again. Any money we receive will go towards paying our rent and/or keeping our electricity, water, gas and phone on.

We are a family of 5 with 3 young kids that has seen a lifetime of hardship in just a few years. We had to endure brain surgery on my child, rare terminal blood disease for me (mom), heart attack from my husband (obviously from stress), me getting laid off my job, loss of home, bankruptcy, and most recently my mother, uncle, and grandmother all passed away since March 7th, 2013. We had to do an emergency move from SC back to GA to care for my father and because of my illness only my husband can work at the moment so we struggled to pay moving costs and it's now catching up to us. We could not pay our utilities in order to pay rent, and now rent is due as well as ALL our utilities are due to be cut off within the next few days. We will either be homeless, or without electricity, water, gas and phone. We also have NO money for back to school supplies for our 3 kids. School starts back in a week and we cannot even buy any supplies for our honor roll, AMAZING kids. If we could just get help with our rent which is $850 one time, then we could use my husbands small check to pay at least the past due balances on our utilities to keep them on, and maybe allow $30 school supplies for each child. We are not the type of people to ask for help, however when you have 3 children that have already been through unimaginable pain in their short lives, and who are just the most deserving sweet children...all pride is swallowed. Please help us!

As a parent, you work so hard to try and NEVER have to put your kids in the situation that we are in now. My husband and I have been together for 17 years and both were always extremely hard workers, but sometimes things happen that are out of our control, and we are faced with swallowing our pride and ask for help for the sake of our children. If we could just get caught up and get back on our feet, we should be able to survive off my husbands income for the most part. We have cut out ALL luxuries a long time ago and have become experts at living dirt poor. We just need help with any amount you could possibly put towards our $850 rent and all past due utilities. We just need a helping hand to get our heads above the water for just a moment in order to pull ourselves out and be able to take care of our sweet amazing children. does not verify individual user claims for accuracy.
