My name is Kathryn, my moms name is Kelly.
Currently my mom works three jobs just to make enough money for rent. Recently, our apartment manager has increased the rent by $100. My mom wants to move somewhere else but she doesn’t have enough money for rent, a deposit, and pet fees; we have a cat and a dog.
Life has been so hard for her. My older sister had been in and out of the hospital her whole life until she turned 28. My mom quickly became in debt.
She had to file for bankruptcy because she couldn’t pay the hospital bills. She now works for the school district as an office para, works for her church, and babysits on the side. She never gets a day off. I just want life to be easier for her. She has always dreamed of living in a small house with a beautiful garden that she could work in all day. I want to give her that.
I help with money when I can, but I know it’s not enough. We need to move somewhere cheaper and nicer. I need her to not have to stress about money every single day.
I want her to be able to have a vacation and not worry about anything. I want her to be happy again.
