FAMILY IN MAJOR CRISIS. SINGLE MOTHER NEEDS HELP

$27,973 of $85,000 raised

raised by 637 people in 1 year

I want to wish everyone a Freilechen Purim and thank you for your continued support. If you can find it in your heart to help myself and my children, I would appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. I am just a mother trying to do the best I can for my kids, despite an impossible situation. Tizku L’Mitzvos.

-Leah

 

Hi, and thank you in advance for taking the time to read this:

I am a single mother of two children going through a messy divorce. My almost 8 year old son (turning 8 this month) and almost 2 year old daughter (turning 2 next month) live with me full time in the marital home that I need to find a way out of. Their father is refusing to pay any of the child support he owes leaving me with all of

the responsibility. He owes me tens of thousands of dollars. I have no family, I have no help, it's me 24/7 with my two kids. When I had pneumonia, I had to refuse to go to the hospital and go home and take care of my children. I don't have a penny to my name.

I have been looking non-stop for work, sending out applications and answering ads online. Finally (Nov 2019) I found a part-time job, which I hope will turn into a full-time job. I'm very grateful for that, but right now it's very sporadic work, just a hours a week, and until I can get more hours or another job and stabilize my situation, I am asking for URGENT donations to help me with my basic living expenses and prevent all of my basics from not being paid.

 

Just this week (March 2/3) my phone was shut off, being alone with two small children and no phone is terrifying -- as soon as I pay one bill or expense, I am behind on the others. Two weeks ago, our bathroom window was shattered, I have no way to fix that.

 

**UPDATE: due to the Coronavirus, my boss has decided to self-quarantine herself and her family. Because of this I LITERALLY have no work again until the situation improves.**

I'M NOT ASKING FOR INDEFINITE HELP - JUST UNTIL I CAN GET ENOUGH HOURS AT MY JOB, SO I CAN COVER JUST BASIC LIVING EXPENSES. THIS HELP IS EXTREMELY CRITICAL - WITHOUT IT, I CAN'T STAY IN MY HOME... AND SINCE EVEN THE SHELTERS HAVE A WAITING LIST FOR YEARS, I LITERALLY HAVE NOWHERE TO GO, AND WILL LOSE MY KIDS.

I am BEGGING you to help me. Please help my children. We have nowhere to go. I have no family, I have lost almost all of my friends because no one wants to spend time with anyone who doesn't have money anymore. My children have NOTHING.

Most weeks we would have no food if Tomchei Shabbos didn't come! Thank G-D they come every week. Pesach and Spring Break are both approaching- ee are NOT taking a vacation or cooking elaborate meals, but my kids sadly also will not get to celebrate like normal kids do because of our current predicament. To add insult to injury, I cannot work when I have nobody to watch my kids while they are home for holidays. As long as they are fed and safe, this is ok with me- but, I want to point out just how bad things are.

We are in a critical situation right now. I STILL have not received a nickel in child support or back child support and I am owed tens of thousands of dollars at this point. The exact number is around $50,000.

Please - I'm BEGGING you - if you can help in any way. It is critical at this point.

I'm so very grateful for all the help I have received since I started this campaign in January 2019. The money that has been raised has kept us afloat. It has paid our bills, put food on our table, paid for snow removal and lawn care when I couldn't do it. It has paid for transportation when I couldn't drive my car. It has paid for car repairs and home repairs (I drive a very old beat-up car).

For those of you asking, I have many documents from social workers etc. to prove this help is truly needed. I also have court documents and medical records and references for anyone who wants them. Please message me if you need to verify any of this.

 

I also have Venmo, paypal and cash app and an Amazon list for basic household needs
