I am a 33 year old single mom of two kids, in desperate need of a car. Looks don't matter, or anything fancy. I just need something reliable to get me back and forth to work, and my kids to school. We have a car, but the cost of fixing it is thru the roof. My kids are on medicaid and we are on government food stamps, because my job doesn't cover everything. Please help.

I am a single mom who's boyfriend moved her to a place where there is no public transportation, and dropped her. I am able to find a job but can't get to interviews. I always have limited food in my house due to begging for a quick ride to a convenient store for whatever I can grab. I have to hand wash my daughters clothes because I can't get to the laundry mat nor afford it with no way to get a Jon. Funny thing is, I had a car, he got pulled over, they impounded my car, he wouldn't get it out, his taxes came in and he got him a car and now has left me high and dry. He has a son and I can't understand why he would do my daughter this way. I need to work to support her. I cry everyday because of this. Someone please help me!!!!!

Hi :)
So, my last vehicle died on me on Mother's day, oh joy. My husband has a rare disablity called myasthenia gravis and also has seven stints after his heart attack in 2010. Due to the loss of his short term memory after the heart attack, I was unable to return to work. Needless to say, we have lots of doctors appts between the Neurologist, Cardiologist and regular Doctor. Before the car broke down (I had to get rid of it) I had started working again very part time for a low vision spec. as her driver to home apps that are out of reach of the shuttle.(she is legally blind) and as a receptionist at a place that serves the disabled several days a month. Without transportation, that's all on hold. I would like to to back to school for sign language but find it impossible in the current situation. We live off of my Husbands and Sons SSI (my son is High Functional Autistic) and my child support. Thankfully we are in a housing program. I love the work and helping others that I've fallen in to, taking people to food banks, medical appts and simply helping. Such a feel good thing :)

Thank you for your consideration,

I am 55 & find myself a widow & now staying with friends. I have rheumatoid arthritis and suffer daily I have no vehicle for Dr appointments or shopping soon I will not be able to walk. Does anyone know how I could acquire a vehicle for small monthly payments? I would be able to pay $100.00 per month but I need 0 down. Life for me really sucks but a vehicle would be a blessing. Any advice would be REALLY appreciated. Have a nice day & thanks for reading my post.

Please if there is someone out there with a big heart I am in need. I recently had to move in with my mom and dad to try to help take care of them they both are in bad health , my dad is going through prostate cancer and my mother is going through Diabetus she is allergic to a lot of the diabetic medicine , she just went through breast cancer she has high blood pressure, and she can't hardly walk anymore. They both are going through so much bad health and try's to live on a fixed income. I can't work anymore cause they need me all the time. But I desperately need a car to take them back and forth to doctors appt's to the stores and different things they need done. So please if u read this let God put his hand on your heart and if there is a way you can bless us with a car I know in my heart God will bless you back over and over cause he knows our need. Thank you for your time in reading this kathy

It's a sad truth that i am here and i thank god and you all for just taking the time to read this, thank you for your time.
