Struggling in California

This is extremely difficult for me to reach out to family and friends for some financial support in time of an emergency. As most of you know, I am a single professional mother sharing the support of my 12 year old son.

Currently I have been without a job going into the 5th month come March. I have been actively interviewing for various positions in my field of expertise; it's a matter of time that I will be in a new position. 

UPDATE:
As we approach March 2018 I have raised some funds and not the goal that went toward February expenses; but now am approaching the same expenses for March. I have exhausted all resources and savings well before the February deadline. The funds that I am trying to raise will mainly go toward the following expenses: rent, gas/electric, internet, phone, payment, and insurance as well as various other expenses. 

Additionally, I looked into emergency rental assistance and other public programs. This is what I found out.
I can't get public assistance or food stamps because my unemployment income is over $1200 monthly, which will run out sometime. Then I don't have enough income to qualify for emergency rental assistance beacuse my monthly expenses exceed my income by more than $100.

If you could support my GoFundMe by making a donation and helping in an emergency, I would greatly appreciate it.  You may also make a comment as to whether it will be considered a loan. I know that money can be tight, so please know that even $5 helps me get closer to my goal! Let me know if you have any questions and I’ll be happy to answer them.
