Keeping a roof over Mom and Child

Can you make a difference in my life?  Yes, yes, you can with whatever you can spare.  A sage man once told me "we all need help from time to time."  While I hate to admit this reality, it is where I am today, namely, if I do not get help, then I (and my daughter) will become homeless in the next couple of weeks.  

How did we get here?  The last few years have been devastating to us on all levels.  I have lost an uncle, best friend, step son, brother and others to unexpected deaths. My x husband was terminated after 15 years on the job a week after my step-son died, and has not been able to secure employment since  In the last year, I have had 3 jobs, 2 of which folded, and the third position ended due to death.  I have applied for more than 500 jobs this year.  I have no current offers.  My checking account balance is $9.85.  I have $10 in cash on me. I drive a 22 year old jeep.  I have drained any and all assets I have and don't have December's rent and don't see how I can come up with it (or January's rent either) without Divine intervention.   I have applied for, and am receiving, public assistance in the form of medical and food benefits, but after reporting I borrowed money from a friend to cover November's costs, we were denied any other assistance.  I am desperate.  I am out of any options other than asking the Universe for help..

I am bold to ask, but I have been bold in my life.  I want to be bold again.  Since I have little faith anymore that conventional employment is going to grace me, I want to take the skills I have acquired in my 52 years and give back to the world.... again.  I have been asked to take on a noble cause helping homeless Women veterans, but need time to develop and launch this program (approximately 3 months).  I have worked in the non-profit arena before and believe it is my destiny to do so again.  

Ironically, if you help me, a single person now, you will be enabling me to help many others ... the true way in which Pay It Forward should be, on an exponential scale.  

A few years ago, I gave away my last dollar to a homeless man.  When someone asked me why I did that with a puzzling look on their face, I said "I have great faith that God will provide me with what I need.  He always has." He did then, I pray that He will again today!  
 
Lastly, I am an honorable person and have tried to live an honorable life.  I would not ask if I did not truly have the need.  If you have any questions, please ask as I am an open book.   

I have great faith and hope that God, through you, will help me, so I can move forward... to help others.

I hope the Spirit is with you and moves you to help me and my child!
