Unmentionable circumstance- Mom and kids in need

I’m at a loss, I’ve never asked for money through social media/gofundme etc, not much for asking for money period especially if I know I won’t be able to pay it back. But our family had been put through the ringer this year. Things have happened that I will not talk about but it’s resulted in an upcoming divorce, a lot of heartache, tears, and emotions that are hard to cope with sometimes. My ex wanted me to be a stay at home mom, which was a blessing in one part, however that meant I had to start over with employment after not having my own income for almost 8 years at the drop of a hat. I went a month without any income while handling legal stuff I had to be available for and looking/applying for employment. Leaving me with all the bills to still take care of and 5 children ( a now 18yr that I’ve only known a few years but love like my own that chooses to stay with me, an 11yr old that I’ve raised since she was 3 and I’m the only mom she knows, and 3 that are biologically mine-14,12 and 3) to take care for. I have to add my 12 yr old has recently moved in with his Dad. I’ve applied for everything that I know about and have gotten help from the govt with food, but that doesn’t help keep a roof over our heads and the lights on, plus the phone bill. I’m still waiting on child support that idk if I’ll ever see and if I don’t make a payment plus an extra $100 ($1050) on the house at the end of this month I’ll be now 3 months (2 months is almost $2000) behind and they will start the foreclosure process. I am blessed and had a friend and a family member help me out with making the payments when I came up short otherwise I would’ve already lost our home. I’m also fortunate the mortgage company has been working with me since this began in August, but with not enough money being there to make my payment I’m still in a bind. Ive let my car go back because I just can’t afford it. Hopefully will be able to get my truck fixed so I don’t have to worry about it breaking down on me ( it’s having some issues which is why I wanted to keep the car at first plus all my kids fit in the car comfortably). I’ve busted my butt when I started working again and managed to get a dept manager position after only 2 months and I have been and am trying to sell some stuff, it’s just been really hard juggling my job, normal responsibilities like grocery shopping and taking care of the household, spend time with my babies and then I also have had a lot of court hearings, paperwork and other legal stuff pertaining to our situation to add to the mix. Although Christmas was a stressor, I have to say I was blessed by a big hearted person who gave me a $100 to spend on my kids and the donors from the angel tree were amazing.

I apologize for the book, it’s really hard to get everything out there. I just wanted to explain as much as possible so our situation would be understood better. I will answer any questions to the best of my ability, while still maintaining some privacy of the details of our situation. I’m only asking for help with a partial payment but honestly anything above that would truly be a miracle to help catch the house payments and get us out of past due status.

Thank you for your time
