A Single Mom/family In Need

I am a single mom of three children. We are in need of emergency help. Due to some health issues, I had a stroke which put my family in a bind where I fell behind on my mortgage and car note. My family will be homeless and will loose my car which I use for transportation to get my children back and forth and income because I also drive for lyft. Thankfully I have gone to my first court date and they are giving me some time to try to raise money to pay back pay for the mortgage before my next court date. The goal is to raise as much as I can to keep my home and car. I have never been in this situation before and it is very scary for my children and I. I have reached out to churches and different organizations but have had no success because either I am not a member of the church or because of this time of year there is no money left in the programs that are supposed to help people. I have no family that is able to help me. I have a father who has Parkinson’s which I help care for him but haven’t recently been able to because of my current situation. And I have a mother who is ill and disabled and I also look after as well. I am currently working but I can not generate that much money that fast to put myself ahead. Especially with me not having a car I am currently not driving for lyft anymore and that source of income has been cut out. My children and myself have been taking Lyft’s back-and-forth which has become very costly. Any donation would greatly be appreciated. Thank you and God bless.
