Jump start my future!
Organized by: Raeneice Eleby
My name is Raeneice Eleby. Im a 22 year old single mother of a beautiful two year old daughter. Ive lived a pretty rough life but managed to pull myself out of the vicious cycles of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. I didnt want my daughter to live the life I have, so I knew I needed to make some changes. I lost my full time job two weeks ago. I have a lot of financial responsibilities, an apartment and everything that entails.I make biweekly payments on a 2001 Chevy Malibu and I have car insurance. I do not drink or use drugs. I attend 12-step self help meetings and Ive accumulated 3 years and 8 months clean. I wasnt accustomed to paying bills but I was doing pretty well. I'd love to buy a house for me and my daughter and have a reliable car. Im realizing that a good credit score plays a big part in being a responsible adult so Ive contacted some collection agencies and made a list of all of my debts. I have hospital bills and student loan debt. This is why Im here; my car is a lemon, everytime I think Ive fixed a problem on the car, something else needs to be fixed. My life needs a jump start. Between my bills, my dying car, and trying to build my credit, Im financially overwhelmed. My bank wont give me a loan because of how bad my credit is and I also tried to get a credit card. Im doing pretty well spiritually and attitude wise, but I know the financial part will keep me stuck in borderline poverty, and government dependency. A solid foundation would really help. I have the determination to follow through with my dream to become fully self supporting. Anything will help!
