Save our Mom from homelessness

Lord please help us here!! I have 10 days to pay or be evicted by October 31st.
I was just informed by our landlord that I am required to pay $1100.00 dollars by Monday October 15th. If I don’t pay that amount in full, they will file directly with the courts to have me evicted and asked that I respectfully just leave by Oct 31st if I don’t think I can pay that amount by then.
Plus on October 31st. Nov rent will be due plus utilities. If I am late beyond the 3 day grace period for that months rent. They will file directly with the courts to have me evicted.
I am one exhausted and emotionally just drained Mom who needs help!!
My friends, I have no place to go if I can’t make these payments by their specific dates. And I’ve given them every dime I have had and been donated all except for our daily expenses and one bill I had to pay, plus I had to get my monthly bus pass renewed or I can’t get to my job to keep working!!
Please help me get caught up and keep us from being evicted and left homeless on the streets in November and right at the beginning of the holiday season. This is the worst timing ever for all this to be happening to me and my family. My kids watched me suffer greatly after I was left homeless after we lost our rental house to a fire 4 yrs ago. They themselves were extremely emotionally traumatized after that summer. Please don’t let my kids be forced to endure even more emotional damage that will be caused if we lose our home.
I’m literally begging everyone. Please share our fundraiser page out and help us achieve the 2nd hair of our goal to get us fully caught up.??!! PLEASE
I fully believe in the Pay it Forward movement. If you chose to donate to this fundraiser, know that you are helping to keep my family our home plus providing a sense of and safety/security. You will be giving to a cause and a mother who’s soul purpose in life is to help others through supporting anyone who needs help. I know what it feels like to feel so alone and that nobody cares for you. This campaign has blessed my life and heart in so many ways. I am looking so very forward to achieving the next level of success. Please continue on this journey with me and support this fundraiser to achieve our needed goal.
From my family to yours GOD BLESS YOU. We literally could not have made our payment and saved our home without all of you. Thank you for all the kindness my friends
With deepest gratitude in our hearts,
The Lucas Family



My name is Leah, and I’m a single mother of two teens living on my own trying to make the best life I can for the 3 of us during hard times right now. 

So far it’s been very challenging to make headway on accomplishing my goals in life due to the many set backs I’ve encountered along the way in just the past few years. 

My wish/dream & prayer for my family with this page is to be able to raise enough funds to keep me and my kids in our home for a few months enabling me the chance to work more hours without the fear of losing our only stability and gain peace of mind. 

My story began in 2010 after my 24 yr relationship and marriage ended in divorce. 
I started my own business cleaning and organizing for the surrounding local communities. I truly loved running my own business while being able to support myself and my kids. However in May 2014 the biggest tragedy in our lives happened. We lost the home I was renting due to a devastating fire. We literally lost everything. I unfortunately had no renters insurance to be able to recover at all from that event.  I lost everything from my business, to my schooling, as I was enrolled in college at that time. The house was a total loss. We also lost our precious two kittens my children had rescued that summer. After the house fire, I was forced homeless for that summer. Not knowing where I was going to sleep or have my next meal. I was so afraid of what would happen next. I slept in park bathrooms and such until I was taken in by tent city. I had finally returned to work and found a place to live then unfortunately a few short months later our family lost my mother to lung cancer.  I was devastated as she was the only parent I had. She was my rock and my best friend in life. Most of my other family has already passed away or isn’t close enough to me at all to be able to help me.

After my mother’s passing,  I made it back to Seattle to re-establish myself and get back to a life for my children and myself.

I managed to accomplish one dream of mine to become a published book author by sharing my story in inspirational books. 

I then ended up in a mentally abusive relationship when I was at the peak of my of my life and I had re-enrolled in school. I was then was forced  to quit after only one semester due to the emotional stresses of that relationship. 

In March 2017 I unexpectedly had a medical emergency and almost died from internal bleeding. It took four months to recover. I wasn’t able to work during that time. 

Finaly in August 2017 I was healthy enough to be able to move passed the abusive relationship and was making it on my own. 

I moved to a different city and worked a full time job. 4 months later I had to move again. That cost alone has been overwhelming and taken all my savings. 

Now I’m at the point since I’ve had to move so much and all the heavy emotional trauma the last few years. I’m just not able to catch up all on my own. Everything has been so overwhelming for me that I was hospitalized for a week. 

All I want is the chance to stay in  my current living situation and be able to at the least provide safety and security. Be able to have enough funds to pay the few bills I have plus also have the funds to buy food for myself and my two children while I continue working. 

Its very hard to feel so alone, helpless and inadequate as a parent that I can’t even afford to buy food for my children. Let alone having to ask for help is embarrassing and humiliating for me. Even though I know I’m trying my best. 
I’m so humbled by my journey in life. Sometimes we just have to ask for a little help during hard times. This is my time to ask for help. 
I pray that with the help Im blessed to receive through this campaign,  I can gain stability then be able to give back so much more to my community. 

 I’m hoping this page will help me restore my faith and hope in the world and that I can move forward knowing my family and I will be safe and healthy for a few months. God is present in my life. Without his love and grace my family wouldn’t be alive today. His guidance plus the love of my kids, support from friends and those who chose to donate , and my total faith in God keeps me going. 
I know what my purpose is in life. 
It’s to help others through service and give back to those who have given to me also sharing and caring with others suffering hard times as well. 

My life goals are to become a certified life coach and be able to finish my real estate license certification. 
I have the strength and ambitions to be all I know I can be. I just need some help to gain a little more stability. 
I have a job currently working for a non-profit organization ran by my church.
I love being able to give back to my community through my job. 

Anything is helpful to me right now. Either through donations, or even just prayers. 
All is welcomed. 
I truly appreciate all the people who have supported me and stood by me through thick and thin. I am hoping people will be willing to help me rally to help save our current home. 

God bless each and everyone of you

All the best-
Leah L.
