THE STORY:

I am raising money to aid a family to have their power turned back on and give them a month or two worth of buffer. They live in northern Georgia in a small town, which I live far from, and winter is closing in. I've tried my best to help out: water bills, supplies food stamps wont cover and extra food, solar charger and a cell phone with a plan, even job hunting and posting things for them on craigslist to help with money. There is only so much I can do alone.

Earlier this year she forced her abusive ex out of the house after he had broken her arm and killed several of her animals, he had also kept her from getting a driver license and job for years. With kicking him out came a loss in revenue. They were doing alright for awhile but all they had was her mothers income from working at a shop, which she soon after this lost. I've been helping them look for jobs but with little luck, what few jobs there are in the area no one has replied to the applications.

They had to decide what bills they could pay and couldn't and soon enough the electric bill was too large to pay off, even with what small amounts we can pay off each month they company wont turn it back on no matter what tell the balance is paid in full. They have received little to no aid from the government, for the most part little things from friends like letting her use the internet to apply for jobs ect but little more. It took 3 months for them to start getting food stamps and the Family and Child services branch near them has only harassed them and offered no help getting into programs only telling them to have something done with in a day or two then randomly checking in late at night or very early in the morning disturbing her child's sleep patterns and causing general difficulties to life let alone trying to get things done and improve their situation.

I need help to help them make it through the winter from there I can help them keep up and I am saving to help them move, but this will take awhile. I don't have nearly enough to help as much as needed to get them up and running, I need help.

All money that I receive will go directly to them and their bills. I expect no reimbursement and I don't want any all I want is to help this family survive.

Thank you for your consideration and help.
