Help A Single Mom of 4 Graduate

Hi, my name is Patricia and I am a single parent of 4 beautiful children and my two oldest are autistic. I am currently a senior in college for a Bachelor's in Social Work. I have no help from the children's Dad in the last 6 years so I started college to not only live my dream of helping those in need but to also get my own family out of poverty. I would like to work with trauma clients as I am a survivor of long term abuse and a social worker helped save my life as I myself have Complex PTSD. I have been working very hard. Working a job full time when not in school and part time while school is in session. I have been taking on odd jobs as well to make ends meet. Now my health, Covid, and life problems have really caused me to struggle. I just replaced my fridge as it went out. My oven is now down and working on a replacement amd the washer and dryer are on their way out as well and with winter approaching and taking so much time of for my medical issues that I have been dealing with the last year and lack if work because of the pandemic my savings is gone and I am right now on the edge of being behind on all my bills. I am hoping soon my medical situation will have answers as I have not been able to keep food or drink down for near a year now and have lost lots of weight. With winter approaching and high electric and propane bills around the corner I am just desperately trying to hold on to graduate. I am struggling keeping up with everything as the pressure is mounting. If I drop out my last semester I will never be able to finish and I would be devastated. I have no one to help or turn to and I am scared that I may trip at the finish line. I am asking for help in getting through my last semester and this winter so I can get a good paying job bring my family out of poverty and spend my life helping others reach their goals and work through their issues. Please anything helps. Every dollar counts and time is of the essence. Please help us succeed I am so so close. Thank you to anyone who donates and I will continue to update with my medical progress and education goal. I will use funds to help pay bills to keep my household running while I continue my last semester and help me focus on my health and education more. It will be life changing for my family for me to finish college as I will be able to care for my autistic children even into adult hood and allow for my children and I to have a better life. I know everyone is struggling but I am asking for help so I can make sure my family won't struggle again, as I will be educated and able to get a good paying job. I will be able to help my kids stay out of poverty by helping them pay for their college. It will have a ripple effect through generations for my family with just helping us get through this last stretch.
