My name is Searra,
I live in Terrytown, LA currently. I have two children, 9 and 11. My boy’s. My story begins probably like most people’s. Covid struck and I was forced to leave my job to be home with my two boy’s last April. I have been out of work since. Unlike many, I was NOT approved for unemployment and my student loans sucked all of my income tax break.  One year and a few months ago I left mine and my boy’s home and went to rehab to get myself clean and sober from drugs and alcohol and have been clean since. Unfortunately it is taking longer than expected to get us back on our feet again. I complete my training as a peer support specialist on the 30th of Oct. , which is such great news because that means I am promised a job almost directly after and get to help in recovery of addicts and in the mental health field. The main issue is that this will require me to have a reliable car. Because of non insurance payment and a bad battery and little to no funds my car is parked without a license plate. Me and my children are staying with some family temporarily on the Westbank currently, which is a far travel for them for school because I am looking for places to rent in their current school district in St. Tammany Parish. They have been in this school district since Pre- K and it is the best public school education for them. We are in desperate need of a home of our as soon as possible. A place where they have their own room and beds. As much struggle we have went through in the past, I have never humbled myself enough to ask for help publicly like this. We desperately need the help. The DMV asks for $900.00 to reinstate everything. That is not including a battery to get my car running and all the liquids changed in it for It sitting for a year. ANYTHING HELPS! Even if it is a simple prayer. 

Thank you to anyone that is willing and wanting to help. So much love to you all.
