Help single mom keep her home

I am a single mother, named Kelly.
My son is 11 years old, named Caleb.

I created from the ground up a amazing small business, 8 years ago. For years, I was working hard & making it great as a single mom. I required no help, paid my taxes and had dreams to keep building.

Until around 2 years ago, my business took a large decline in sales. It was a new trend in my finances, always declining. Yet I had high hopes of bringing it back up. It never did.

I was forced to sell my home in Denver, because I could no longer afford the cost of living.  This was a solution at the time that I thought would work. I moved 1,000 miles away to Michigan, where cost of living was not as high. I used the extra money from the house that was sold in Denver, to purchase a mobile home {so I would no longer have a mortgage} and be able to afford things a little easier.

Little did I know my business would come to a complete stop 8 months later. I was going weeks without any sales, no pay. What did come in, was very little and not enough. I started working for a local school, working to watch children while at the playground & working a before school daycare program. Then...My hours were cut. 

I have been actively searching for a new job for the last several weeks and have applied to over 40+ places with only one interview and no leads.

I am only working 10 hours a week, I am going to food banks for food for myself and my son, I owe my family too much money and have used all their resources.

I have no more money.
I have nothing left to sell for cash.

It has been so hard on me emotionally, to watch our lives continually down grade and not know how I'm going to make it. I'm trying so hard to keep my head above water and seems I can't get a open door, they keep closing.

I have no one else left to ask for help.

I don't want to loose my home and have to sell it again.
My son needs stability and I need just a small break.
Anyone that can help me, is helping me buy more TIME to keep searching for a job.

I'm a positive person, clean drug free, I don't drink, I'm goal driven.
I want to go back to college and finish my degree to teach {but I need my immediate life crisis to stop first} Once I land a decent job I am hoping to get my life back on track.

It has been hard emotionally to stay positive, but I do. I have to for my son. Being a single mother has always had it challenges but this has been a whole new level for me. 

This will help keep our electricity on, heat going, water running, lot paid, gas in my car to continue to keep going to job interviews, prescriptions, food on the table etc.

I have 2-3 more weeks and that is when I am backed into a corner with no where to go.  Lights will be shut off, water will stop and I will loose my home and everything I have worked so so hard for.

If you can help float Caleb & I by for a few more months, this will allow me to continue to job search. I would be so thankful and grateful. I don't liek asking for help, but I need to. I don't know what else to do and turned to Gofund me as a last resort.

Please help my son Caleb & I keep our home.

Thank you to anyone who can help me get back on my feet!
