Mother of 3 Stepmother of 2
My kids are my daily motivation and inspiration, there is nothing that I wouldn't do for them or any mile that I wouldn't walk. I am recently engaged to a man that I can't find great enough words to describe. His life reminds me daily that in my struggles it always could have been so much worse and he inspires me because in him I see how a person can still grow up to be wonderful if it is what they want to be, and that just because a person walks through hell, it doesn't mean that they won't be standing inside Heaven in the end.
I believe in keeping faith that everything is going to work out the way that it is supposed to, and what keeps me going is knowing that every struggle comes with a blessing so with good faith and positivity I am here hoping that my blessing comes soon.

We are here asking your help for 2 things. The first thing is for any help at all with an approval into a home. We are currently homeless after wrongfully being bumped from a housing program from our local Community Services Center. There was an investigation held, our case was taken to their board... but unfortunately there was nothing they could do and after carrying ourselves and paying full rent for 4 months, we could not do it anymore and we were evicted. We are now clients of 1st Place Family Center and are on The Rapid Rehousing program which pays for all costs of move in into a home upon approval. It has been months now, and because of this eviction we have had nothing but denials. This program pays everything in, and then pays all rent for 6 plus months aside from $130 in which we are responsible for paying. Still....no approval yet. We are looking for a 3 bedroom, (though my dream would be a 4 bedroom) for no higher than $1150 a month and preferably in the Springfield area. (Springfield, OR) If there is any private owner help you can give, or if you are a private owner yourself PLEASE just allow me a little bit of your time so that I can properly explain further, our situation so that you'll hopefully believe that we are honest people, love to maintain a beautiful looking home inside and out, and to believe that in 6 months when this program comes to an end we will have no problems in maintaining the rent on our own, and that we will be on time and consistent.

Number 2 is for the help with a vehicle that will hold the 5 of us and at least run well. I'm not worried about the looks of it any longer. Yea it would be nice to have a gorgeous top of the line kind of vehicle to look all flashy in, but what matters the most is to simply take away one of the biggest set backs we face in getting so much accomplished and that is not having transportation of our own. We are by far not opposed to walking or taking a bus, and we do this daily... But I can't say that with all of the kids, their schooling and at separate schools, school activities/meetings, other daily things, work related, sports practices and games....I'd be lying if I said it wasn't a struggle because it definitely is. Having a vehicle would take such a load off of our already extremely stressful and busy days. Maybe the kids and us could actually go do a family trip somewhere cool, we have never yet done anything like that before, and the kids, the oldest being 13, have never once seen the ocean or been on a beach. It's one thing we keep aiming to do every summer but havent' yet been able to. I can't tell you how grateful we will all be if anyone here decided that they want to help. You will forever and ever be appreciated so much, and words can't express the amount of relief it will give me personally. I lost my father February 1st, 2014. It still seems like it was yesterday. Our youngest son was born that very same day, and my father passed away 3 hours before. I haven't quite been the same since and the hardship my fiance and I have been fighting through, it just seemed to be amplified by 20 ever since I lost dad. I just need 1 single positive and I'd feel so much better, probably somewhat renewed. We are good people, my fiancee Volunteers for both The Bratton House and Catholic Community services regularly, about 4 days of the week and he does it to give back the help they have given up over time, not because it counts as work experience. Please if there is anything at all anyone can do to help us I will be forever grateful for you. It would mean SO much!

Thank you for your time,
The Lockhart Family

Hi, thank you for replying. I figured it wouldn't hurt to at least put it out there. One never knows what may or may not happen when they take a chance.

Hi, most sincere congratulations on your expected new baby. We do not know any resources that will help with moving expenses. For possible help with rent and deposit, get on internet, type in needhelppayingbills, then your city,county,state. You will see a list of resources in your area that may be able to help with rent first month and deposit, if they got the funds.

Recovering alcoholic/drug addict being treated for MDD, in an overall terrible situation as I have lost my life to depression & bad luck on top of it, as I have had a car since I'm 17 & am now 45 & for first time find myself without a car since January of 2016 & am so stuck I don't know how much longer I can live my life stuck without a prayer. I paid $7000 cash for a car that I found out 6 mos later was a lemon and I did not have a warranty. I feel like when it rains it pours, and I am struggling to get my life back on track. I live in a rural area and can't find a job & the closest bus stop - it is not within walking distance. I have been a responsible adult my whole life, even as an active addict, but in the last 10 years since being sober, I struggle to get my MDD under control and it is costing me any kind of real quality to life. Losing my car, the last thing I had, was devastating and the weeks & months are passing & I can't find help. My family is not an option they barely get by themselves, my credit is destroyed & without a car, I do not see my horrible situation changing. I hate being this desperate, but it is what it is and I am at the point where I am swallowing my pride & trying anything within reason to find help. Thank you.

The way most people that want to advance in life is by going to some type of postsecondary education, right after high school. you can go fulltime or part time you can work part time if needed.apply for Pell grant. You don't want to be broke like this all your life! I am so glad you see it now, instead of 20-30 years from now. So start planning on this and working on the details. Your former high school guidance counselor will help with any questions you may have.

I am a physically disabled woman who fled an extremely abusive husband whose abuse equaled every category of abuse, including financial abuse.I had my two daughters safe with my parents for the summer so that they would enjoy a summer free of tyranny and I would have time trying to dig us out of hell and into a safe home and a safe vehicle as I have had neither. Unfortunately, the monster drove 5hrs to my parents home( with my son who is his favorite and who is sadly becoming his father), and kidnapped my babies! He hasn't communicated w. me despite the thousands of attempts I have made. I finally received a msg. from my oldest daughter who told me where they are and begged me not to tell her father. She expressed such fear of him and I am powerless! How can a 34yr. old mother be so low? Well to begin with I've been fighting for disability bens. for 6yrs."They" have done borderline illegal things to keep from receiving my rightfully earned benefits. So, as a result, I've no money, no vehicle, no assistance other than food stamps and med.; what's worse I am living with a friend who is anything but a friend. He is much like my husband and I am not safe here and I have to get out asap. I need to get my girls back as I cry literally 24/7 at how powerless and hopeless I feel. I've applied for assistance but I have so many things I am required to do and living in a county where everything is 12-15 miles away. I have to see my doctor 2-3 times per month and he is 50 miles away. I cannot get my daughters without a vehicle and without a safe and comfortable place to live. Part of my disability is not just a broken body, but severe anxiety. I cannot function as I can't run, I face so many obstacles that would make my life a life if only I could conquer them. How can I? No $$, No home, No vehicle, No ability to work. My God I am so scared for my girls.. I'm so scared that I can't be there safety and protector. I cannot even support myself. Please dear God, help me, there has to be a way just to help me build a foundation so that I could continue fighting for my disability and continue being the mother I was before a monster took that away from me as well. He's taken every hope. Pleas help me!!!!
