Sober and trying to find a job so I can support myself

Requesting: $500

Location: Keller, TX

I am 48 years old and have been divorced for a year. There are two things I need right now. I need a job that will provide me with enough income to support myself. I need a place to live that is safe and affordable. I am trying to hold on to my car and phone so that I can make contact with potential employers and get to job interviews. That is what I would use the money for. I became addicted to several things including alcohol in 2009. Since then my life has spun out of control. I lost my marriage, my children, my career, my job, all of my savings and retirement, and my house. With God's help and intervention I got sober in January of 2012 and have remained so since then.

I am well educated and have a bachelors degree. However for the last 23 years I worked in one field and my job skills are limited. Seven months ago a friend gave me a part time job in a new business and I have had the opportunity to gain some new skills. Due to a lack of clients, however, my hours have been cut to 10 hours a week and I cannot support myself on this. I have been unable to find a full time position and I lost my apartment. I have been living with a friend's family rent free for the last few months, but they are going through a divorce and I have been asked to leave by the end of May. My daughter is 21 and in college on a scholarship. My son is 17 and lives with a family in another town. My ex-husband has been living in a homeless shelter and just recently found a job and moved in with his mother. The addictions I have suffered with have destroyed my family and our lives. I want so desperately to work and provide for myself. I am hard-working and dedicated. I will use any financial assistance I receive to pay on my car and potential housing.

I am a believer in Christ so I ask if you cannot help financially that you pray for me. Pray for me to remain strong in my faith and my sobriety. Pray for me to find a job that will enable me to support myself and provide for my son and daughter. Pray for our family to be reunited. Pray for me to find housing whether it is temporary or permanent, that I can afford. I promise to be a good steward of any donations made to me and to use them to provide for housing and transportation. Thank you for your prayers and your contributions. does not verify individual user claims for accuracy. We are not responsible for content posted by individual users.
