Homeless mother of 3 needs help

Over the last few years I've devoted my time and energy to taking the steps necessary to build the foundation for a better life for me and my four children. I put myself through cosmetology school and finally felt as though my life was on the right track. Things were going great for a period of time, and then I started to fall upon some hardships along the way. Recently I lost my job and found it hard to make ends meet. As a result of this, we have been evicted from our current residence. It kills me to reach out and ask for help, but I cannot be too proud or too stubborn. I have to allow myself to be vulnerable in order to do the right thing for my kids. I'm feeling desperate at this time- we have until Monday December 4th to be out of our home. I have no place to go, no family to fall back on, and I'm running out of options. Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated. I know it's a lot to ask, especially at this time of year, but I'm hoping to raise enough money to do the following. 1. protect my car and one true asset from being repossessed due to non-payment my car is my lifeline for job searching and future work opportunities. 2. to pay for temporary accommodations until a long-term dwelling can be attained. 3. pay for a security deposit first and last month's rent and utility set up at a new place to live and 4. pay for storage and other costs related to this Force move. Thank you so much for your consideration, and for those of you who are able to help- even a few dollars would be beneficial to me at this time. Any little bit helps- it all adds up. I look forward to the day where I can repay the kindness and Grace shown to me and bless others with the same. Thank you from the bottom of my heart
