 GREEN BAY, WI
I am a single mother of three children ages 4, 6,and 8. I have recently lost my job and then my car died. We have been staying at a hotel we can no longer afford and all of the shelters that accept kids have long waiting lists. My only concern at this point is making sure my kids are safe and warm! Any and all help will be welcomed and received with warm loving grateful hearts, and we as a family will pay it forward as soon as we are able! Thank you all in advance for even considering helping my family out, you may never know how much it will mean to me but know that it will be everything this time of year knowing they are all warm and safe!!

Have you tried freedom house? I'm a single mother of 4 and can relate. They will work with you to find you somewhere. Even if they cannot help, they can point you towards resources. You can also contact 2- 1- 1 for emergency resources for emergency housing and food.

As an international student spending the holidays alone in the US, I know how hard is to cope with feelings of despair and loneliness these days. But I want you to know that God never leaves us alone. Reading your story warmed my heart, gave me hope and made me feel much better when I needed it the most. I send my prayers and my best wishes to you and your family. You're a warrior and I know that great things are coming your way. Merry christmas Amy! :)

I was in your exact position many years ago...3 children and expecting a 4th...with no where to go. I prayed...please God...help me...and I promise I will give back 10 fold...my prayers weren't answered then...but I was able to take care of my children...established a wonderful career in sales...and I even put all of them thru private universities....I am blessed. Always remember, when one door closes, another one opens...you just need to tug that door knob...and make it happen!!

God Bless you! I am crying for you and praying that this year brings better fortune to your family. I hope this money helps you in some way. If I had enough money I would buy you a house and a car. You and your children deserve to be safe and warm. Merry Christmas!
