My name is Melissa I'm making this fundraiser to try and raise money to help me and my 3 small children get a place to live that's our own. I have been unable to find employment even tho I try every day I am currently trying to get into a certified nursing program to help make a better life for us. I have 3 children ages 11, 8, and 4 and it's just me and them. After leaving their abusive father and everything we had we have been staying with family. Space is limited and we found a place to move into but the landlord wants the security deposit and first and last months rent upfront. I go through an agency that will help me pay my rent but they won't help with this. The agency won't help pay till June and he want the money now or he will give it to someone else. My children have birthdays this month and next and I feel like a failure because I can't give them anything. I'm not a person who feels comfortable asking for help but I can't find any other way so I'm just asking for you to please help me and my babies get a home of our own. Thank You and God Bless!
