Sadly despite this wonderful outcome, my little old Hyundai was totaled, and the insurance amount is simply not enough to purchase a reliable vehicle. This is where the hard part comes into play for me. I am a forensic social worker, and I regularly transport clients to appointments, meetings, and medical care. I also travel to correctional facilities all over the state of Maryland. In short, my car enables me to do the job I love so dearly. Without a reliable vehicle I can't do my job; I need a vehicle in order to serve my clients. Now being a social worker is wonderful and my calling; it doesn't however, offer a large financial cushion. My husband was out of work for almost two years, and we are finally both employed. We were just starting to get abreast of our finances again, but we are dealing with huge debts and huge loans. Needless to say, our credit is not as good as it should be, and a car loan is impossible at this time. Which brings me to my request for assistance. I have found a reliable car, with less than 95K miles on it for $5500. Our trusted mechanic, who is wonderful, is selling the car, and he has done amazing work keeping our family cars running smoothly and safely. Our family would very much appreciate any little bit of help to get us over this hurdle.
