Single Mom and a Dead Beat Dad

My Friend is a single mother struggling to make ends meet. She was working full time making it work. Then Covid hit and she was forced to bring her daughter to work when her child’s school closed. Her employer kept her on right as the extra unemployment money ended and then let her go. Unemployment wasn’t enough so she has been working for delivery services which pays her poorly, but because she has income she doesn’t get unemployment. The child’s father owes her over $20 thousand in child support and she can’t get anyone in Social Services to make him pay. This man has another daughter a few months younger then my friend’s daughter. He is now raising this child full time and this year has brought her to Disney and was in Vegas this past month. Yet, he can’t pay child support for his first daughter. I am setting up this fund to help my friend and her daughter. Being a single mom is hard. Being a single mother during Covid is even harder. Having a father choose one child over the other, while he lets the one to go without is unacceptable! The purpose of this Go-Fund is to help my friend keep a roof over their head and food on the table and maybe a small Christmas for them.
