Help Melanie and kids

Thank you for taking the time to read this. My sons and I are trying to get my car fixed and into a house. We have made it through a lot this year, a traumatic CDV, my ex putting my children in danger with his addiction and his bad choices. Now the judge has granted our order of protection so my kids and I are safe finally and we are trying to move on with our lives. I have been unemployed for a year because of medical reasons and for the last 3 months I have been applying for jobs and nothing seems to pan out so far. I hate asking for anything, but I am at a point of desperation to get into a place where we can have beds to sleep on and not someone’s couch. I have been the sole provider for my family of 11 for 15 years and after finally leaving a mentally, emotionally and physically abusive relationship, I can’t seem get back on my feet. I finally have an opportunity to get in a house and I just need a helping hand. My community came together when I needed a couch to sleep on, when my ex gave my adopted son into the hands of his abuser to help get my baby home and I hope I can please get your help to get the money to move in a house and get my car fixed. I am at the mercy of my friends and family as I just want some normalcy for us after this battle.
