I am here with a heavy heart after spending the last few days with my good friend. She is a single mom of 3, and has been the sole provider for these children their entire lives.
Due to her daughter having severe medical issues and being hospitilized for 3 months, my friend had to miss a decent amount of work to tend to her child's heath and recovery. Two days before her daughter was released from the hospital, this poor mom was fired from her job. As a result, and trying to begin immediately generating income, she began to drive for Uber. It wasn't very long before she got robbed by one of the riders (for a lot of money and other things as well). This did not stop her drive to keep going. What did stop her was out of her control. After only 2 months of driving for Uber, her vehicle began to rapidly die on her. One problem after another, and she eventually could not afford to fix anything else on it.
Now she is facing eviction just after Christmas, and has cut off notices for all of her utilites, and her phone has already been cut off. She has been trying to find work in our small town, but nothing is in walking distance, and our area doesn't offer any sort of public transportation.
It breaks my heart to know that this hard working mom is still holding on to a small amount of faith, but I can see the despair in her eyes, even though she won't admit it, I know she is losing hope. She has no family, and no one to turn to. I wish I could help her, but I am struggling myself. This is the only way I know how to help.
If anyone can find it in their hearts to help this family, she would be forever greatful. She is such a kind hearted and loving person. The kind that would give the shirt off of her back to a homeless person without hesitation.
This is a special kind of emergency, and the faster she can get a place to live and her car fixed, the more chances she will have to get a job and get back on her feet.
If I am unable to get her help soon, she will lose her children, because she literally has no where to go.
Thank you for taking the time to read her story, and God bless you. Even if you can just offer prayer and hit share so we can reach more people, and give her a better chance to find the miracle she so desperately needs and absolutely deserves.
