Dear Amy,

First of all I wanted to say thank you for taking the time to read this email from me. I have been in need to cry out for help for so long and I’ve gotten to the point where I just can’t deal with things anymore. I am a single mother of 2 wonderful kids ages 9 & 6. I am behind on my rent and in the process of eviction, my electricity and gas bills are on disconnect notice, and I don’t even have milk and bread for my children. This morning I didn’t even have any breakfast to feed my kids. Its sad the life we are living but unfortunately I don’t have any other help. My ex husband, the father of my children, is incarcerated and will not help out. I don’t have any close family that has any financial means to help out with. I am currently working 2 jobs and still can’t make ends meet. It seems like I’m always running into a brick wall and something else will pop up that I have to pay. I haven’t even been able to buy winter clothes for my kids or winter shoes for my kids because I don’t have the money. I don’t care to have things that I need, I just want food and proper clothes for my children. Do you have any resources or ideas that may help myself and my children??? I seriously need help. any assistance or guidance that you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you and God Bless
