Help! About to lose it all!
Organized by: Mary Martinez
I've always worked very hard and helped whoever I can! Three years ago my husband moved me and my son to Texas to be closer to his family. Six weeks later he took everything and left us. He moved to Playa del Carmen, Mexico! At the time, I had a good job so was able to recover. He left the bills and the responsibilities but I fought hard to recover and divorced. I lost my job in April of last year. I partnered in a business relationship with a man I started dating. I didn't realize st the time that I was in an emotionally abusive relationship. I probably should have taken much longer to heal from divorce before fading again but I was incredibly lonely, my family lives in Indiana so it has been just me and my son, who just turned 10. I've tried to give him stability, because he has gone through tremendous loss. In August, the emotional abusive relationship turned physical and my business partner locked me out of the business and took all of the money. I have no access to the bank accounts. I am facing eviction. I just started a new full time job last week. I have taken a severe pay cut but it's a full time job! If I get evicted next week, i will lose my job braise i will literally have no where to go. My son's school is next to my apartment so he is able to walk to and from school. I have a long commute in the mornings so it is important that my son stay close to the school because I am unable to get him or pick him up because of my work schedule. I pray that someone will see this and help me. I've never had to ask for help... I've always been the helper. Please help me stay in my apartment, keep my job and keep my son stable and in his school! I have no where to go, no one to turn to. I've asked everyone i know for help, it's embarrassing! I've gone to Catholic charities and they don't have rent funding available. I've sold everything I can to put food on the table and now I'm at a loss.
