High Urgency Request
My parent is a single mom of 4 children. She has been unable to find work in the local area that allows her to be home when her younger children are home. Her oldest child is not appropriate to watch the younger ones due to being intellectually disabled and mental health issues. My parent has been traveling to San Antonio on weekends to work with Door Dash. Her vehicle’s transmission went out and is still in the shop. Her only income is social security and is struggling to pay the money to pay for her vehicle repairs and her rent. Her landlord has given her an eviction notice and court is scheduled on November 4. My parent is needing help in paying her rent for October and November so she can pay for her vehicle repair. This will give my family extra time to make plans to move to San Antonio without the worry of not having a home to live in.

High Urgency Request
This request is for a family of three which includes a single mom and twin three year old girls. Mom recently moved to this home after leaving a domestic violent relationship and is trying to get on her feet. Mom is currently not employed due to the pandemic. Mom was receiving child support however, there is no order in place at this time and the father of the children is refusing to pay anything until it is ordered by a court. Mom received a job offer however, they are waiting for her background check to clear. There are charges on her record that will be expunged once her legal fees are paid. Mom needs assistance with legal fees, rent, electricity and internet. This is a one time request. As soon as the charges are removed, she will have a good paying job and be able to pay all of her bills on her own. The break down is as follows- $950.00 for rent and water for October, $230.96 for electricity (includes past due amount), $50.00 for internet (the girls attend virtual school some days and internet is required), $241.58 for court fees to remove charges from her record and $514.00 to pay her attorney.
