We are a family of 5 myself my husband & our 3 children ages 8yrs 7yrs & our 9month old baby. We recently moved to Sparta bc the complex where we lived was a really bad place to have children. Our oldest 2 found a syringe outside while playing. Shortly after our move our car blew up & left us carless & joblesss in a new town where we do not know anyone. We have manage to scrap up $400 to put toward a car and found one that someone is willing to work with us and sell it for $500. But it is on the other side of Mt. Juilet we have to get the car today is what the ppl told us bc they are taking a trip & have to sell it today! We don't have anyone or I wouldn't be on her begging for help. We are willing to work for help even this car would be a blessing to our family. The school here told us last week to get a car or they was calling the department of children services on us because our daughter got sick at school last week & we was unable to get her home. Today my phone was turned half off so I can get txt & calls but can't. Call out or txt. I can however send & recive emails. My email is 88tinaervin@gmail.com. We are not lazy ppl unwilling to work we have never struggled like this ither. We have become victims of circumstance & unlike most ppl we have no family or friends to lean on in our time of need. Without a car we have no means of survival & we are good parents love our children dearly we are not in this situation because of any wrong doing on our part. We moved bc we wanted a better enviroment for our children & before we was even able to get jobs by fluke became carless & life to say the least has became unmanagable. If anyone out there can help it would be so greatly apprciated. This is my only means to reach out as I said earlier my phone was half turned off this morning & I can access my email & recive calls but can not make calls. Thank you & godbless. If you are unable to help please pray for our family.

I will keep your family in prayer. It might be a good idea to talk to some of the other parents in your neighborhood and get a way of having your children picked up if needed. Even if you get a car and one of you gets a job you still have the situation of not being able to pick up your child without leaving work and risking getting fired. There are good people in the community who can help out but don't want to be a taxi service. You might also check around here for a car. There are some sold at about the same price and it would be easier to get to. I am blessed to have family to help in a bind and I honestly pray your situation improves.

Go to church! lots of churches in this area would help you, but I have been laid off work for the past year & poor poor pitiful me just don't get it! You still have internet service through all this? Come on! If I didn't have any money , then I wouldn't be paying for internet just so I could post on TOPIX for somebody to come save me! Topix is not email!

So sick of these bums and their hardluck bs stories. GET A JOB!!! The only problem you have is your own, not mine. Poor planning, having children before financially stable with education or technical training in hand to prepare for the job market. If you had made better decisions during high school and after then you wouldn't be in the shape you are in. You're just the typical liberal bum looking for a handout instead of taking action. This is what happens when you fail at life. Sorry about you hard times, but you drove yourself their. Now put your adult underwear on and change your life. If you want help, you can find it at the church. Pretty sure that is where you need to be anyways.

Tennessee is the poorest state in the US. Sparta/White Co. is one of the poorest locations in Tennessee.

Why on God's green earth would anyone move to Sparta to try and improve their lot?

I'm sorry for your plight, and normally I'd be happy to help, but I've helped folks before in your same situation, only to find out it was a scam.

Around here, the more you give, the more you're asked to give. The situation never gets better.

I have fell on hard times as well in the past. But I have learned to lean on myself in these instances. If I didnt have a job I would make it my full-time job trying to find one and to better my family. If I didnt have the money to pay for things the first to go would be luxeries such as a cell phone and internet services, you CAN live without it or cable..etc. Put that money toward getting a car.I believe in the power of prayer and faithfullness if you go to church please dont go just for a hand out go because you want to! God will see you through, and I will be praying for you and your family.

I am confused, how do people who cant take care of their kids have cell phone or internet.

I feel for your kids but stand back and take a look at what you dont need. Cell phone, internet no telling how many other things you might can cut out til you get on your feet.

btw there are people all over who do not have cars and who have kids in school. Sparta has a taxi service to go pick up a sick kid.

It never ceases to amaze me that people just pack up and move.I talk to people that say we just drove through here and liked it so we went home ,packed ,and moved here.Mind boggeling that someone would uproot three kids and move somewhere that you don't have any family or friends for support.I'd like to help you get back to your mommy and dad.Maybe you left the nest too soon.
