Michele and Matthew Starting Over

Organized by: Michele Phillips

Michele's Photo


My name is Michele, I'm a disabled mom who just got out of an abusive and really bad situation. I am desperately looking for help so my son and I can start a new, peaceful life. We finally found a place to live but are still in need of a lot of help in order to get moved. The only place that I could afford is not "great" but it's liveable and the owner has agreed to let me rent-to-own because of our situation. Right now we are having to start over from scratch...we are in really bad need of furniture, appliances, and most importantly air conditioners! We also need help with getting our utilities turned on so we can be moved in by the 3rd. I have limited income from disability which is going to cover the rent, van payment, medical and prescription costs, and some of the regular utility bills when they come; my son has a part-time job which will help a little but not a lot. My health problems are extensive from heart and lung disease, diabetes, osteomyelitis, neuropathy, and now I have to have surgery for what my cardiologist says is either an aneurysm or temporal arteritis, neither of which are good! I am "supposed" to be as stress free as possible but right now that's not happening...I don't know what else to do, I have been to every agency and church in our county, to no avail, so now I've turned to begging and pleading with this "fundraiser"....this is our last resort!! I can provide any proof and documentation that anyone wants, as well as the full " back story" of our current situation. Just send me a message and/or a friend request on Facebook and I will reply's listed as "Michele Lee Flick (Phillips-Hudson)"
I am not looking for money to "blow", I am not looking for handouts " just because", and I am not asking for help just so we can have "new" or "better" things...all I am doing is asking for help to get back on my feet with the things that are necessary for us to survive! I want a peaceful and happy home to finally live in and be able to have my granddaughter come visit. I want to be able to provide a home for my son without worrying about all of the things we have been through just in this past year! If you're not comfortable with donating money directly to me but still want to help in some way, I can provide you with the addresses and phone numbers of the utility places, the landlord, or anything else. If you live locally and have air conditioners, furniture, appliances, kitchenware, or other household and "repair" items that you would like to donate or sell very cheaply in payments, PLEASE just let me know and I would be more than happy to meet with you! All we need is just a chance!! Thank you for taking the time to read our story, it really means a lot to us! And yes, I will go ahead and admit that I was a complete idiot for ever trusting, loving, and believing in him...I really thought I was making a difference and could help...NEVER AGAIN!
