Need Help with RENT/ELECTRICRequesting: $500 Location: Gueydan, LAHi. My name is Heather and I have 5 children. One is disabled and I have to stay at home to take care of her. My husband recently walked out on us because he can not handle the stress anymore. He left me owing 386.00 on rent and a 690.00 electric bill with a cut off notice for the 21 of January 2014. I have appointments with the community action program for help with a portion of the rent, however, I haven't found anyone to help with my current electric bill. It contains charges for two months. Last months alone was 409.00 and the next months is 173.00. The 690 that I quoted is with late charges added. The only income that we currently have is my daughters disability every month. I just started baby sitting one child but the income is merrily enough for food the next few weeks until our food stamps come in on the 3 of February. I sincerely appreciate any help that we can be receive and Thank the Lord for our special Angels.I am requesting the money that I have ask for because I am now a single mother, of 5. I have a 3,7, 12, 15 and 17 year old child. I am not able to work because my child is mentally challenged and I myself just was diagnoised with a muscle disorder. I do babysit as much as I can to make ends meet at the moment. I do receive Food Stamps and my daughter receives disability. My doctor has recently submitted my application papers to get mine started as well. I will use any money donated to my family to pay our electric bill with that we owe. I am currently awaiting public housing so we can pay our rent and bills on our own. I had none of these issues up until my husband walked out on us a week before Christmas.I basically need help to pay my rent and electric to keep a roof over my babies heads. I need 500.00 to pay off my electric bill and to help pay some on my rent. ALL money donated to us will be used towards our bills.
