I am a single mom of three (I have all babies: 3 yr old, 1 yr old and 7 mth old.) that really needs assistance because recently I received a bill from my energy company that stated I had been back billed due to incorrect reading of my meter. Due to that incorrect reading, my bill is now $700 (ten times what it normally is), which is making it impossible for me to pay my rent.
I live on my salary check to check. And I just don't have enough income coming in to allow me to pay a $700 electric bill and my rent.
I am afraid that my kids and I will be evicted from our home and become homeless. Or the energy company will disconnect my lights. I am stressed out, depressed, and its really taking a toll on me physically. I am constantly thinking about how I will pay this expense and its causing me not to be able to function correctly.
It's a huge step to ask for help, but I have to put my pride aside for my kids. In the future, I plan on going back to school to further my education so that I can make more money to provide for my kids and myself.
This assistance will get me caught up for this month of September. I will be relieved that my kids will be able to stay in our home, and it will help reduce my stress level significantly, so I can take better care of my babies, who need lots of attention.
