Help Me Keep My House and Dogs

This is incredibly embarassing. I do not do well with asking for or receiving help, and I wanted to keep a really private situation private. Unfortunately I have done all I can do on my own and the help is needed.

Steve & I have ended our 13 year relationship. I have been trying to keep the house afloat on my own. I need help keeping that house now so my dogs and myself still have somewhere to live. My credit is trashed from trying to pay the mortgage and utilities on my own and over extending myself. I am in serious debt. This amount doesn't even touch what I need but it'd be a start.

If I am not able to keep my house, I will be unable to find somewhere to live because of my credit and there is no way I will find somewhere to rent with my dogs. We need to keep our house and stay home together. It is taking a toll on me emotionally, physically and mentally. Work is suffering at my brand new job.

I am already selling anything I have that is of any worth and this money will help me close the gap to get me back on my feet and stable enough to continue this new chapter on my own. I am ashamed of the entire situation and that I need to reach out and put this story out here. Anything would be a great help to me. Thank you.
