I write this in shame that I have lost everything that I have and have made some bad decisions that have left me and my children desolate and without a place to stay. I hate that I have to come to you for help this way but I have run out of options and have exhausted every resource I have and me and my kids have been homeless for 5 months now. I only have 2 more days to live where I am at now and don't have anywhere else to live but on the streets. All of the shelters are full and starting to loose hope. I know many of you may not have known but I only shared my story with those who were closest to me. I've taken accountability for everything that I have done and have asked God and the people I took for granted for forgiveness. I just need a second chance.
Here's where it all began
I had a dream of opening up a Health food store and Organic Farm in urban areas to help and educate people who were uniformed or who just did not have access to clean or non-processed foods. Well I accomplished that by opening Adunni Natural Grocers last year in August and spent every last dime to do it. Yet, it didn't thrive as well as I hoped and took a nose dive. I did everything I had knowledge of to stop it but non-the-less due to poor location, it failed, I failed and my children lost. I don't have to tell you how it feels to not be able to take care of your children or be able to provide a secure foundation for them. It has been a roller coaster of emotions and I've been trying to not let them see me cry most nights when praying for a solution. I've looked for jobs everywhere with no positive results. I have my resume on every hiring site there is but when and if I get a job I don't have a place to live transportation to get there or money to to survive. I have never been in a hole this deep and am so scared that my children will be taken away from me for being an unfit parent. I'm begging for some type of miracle here! Asking God to give me a second chance! If not for me then for my kids..they don't deserve this. I recently thought I had a real shot at getting a job at Piedmont Medical and received an email a couple of days ago that they filled the position with someone who had more experience. That hit me hard. :( So my only resort is to ask for help. Something I'm not good at because I'm accustomed to being the one who helps others.
I just cant go on living like this and don't want my children to suffer anymore
So please if you can provide me and my 3 children (16yr boy 13 yr boy and 6yr girl) A place to stay, a Job and some financial assistance we would greatly appreciate it. I don't have much to offer in return but my skills in Tarot card readings, cooking, cleaning, or babysitting...I'll almost do anything to get out of this situation.
The 2500.00 will go towards a 1 bedroom apartment at extended stay for 175.00 a week plus deposit..Or a 1 Bedroom apartment for less that 600.00 a month. I only need the basic living arrangments. I'm not even picky about the neighborhood. As long as I'm near a transit and able to get to and from job oppertunities I'm more than happy.
Please forward this to anyone who can help if you can not.
and thank you for taking the time to read this.
All prayers are certainly welcomed.
Love and Light
