LucyLocket has empty pockets

I am the single mother of three truly delightful teenagers. I have been divorced for five years, and am presently receiving no support from my ex-husband. After I divorced him, he moved to another state and was subsequently convicted of a heinous criminal act, for which he is now imprisoned.  They don't collect child support from inmates and I am not eligible for any kind of assistance. I have been trying very hard to manage on my own, with some help now and then from family and friends; but earlier this year I was stricken with an illness that took a bite out of my budget, and then I was hit at work with a freeze on overtime. I depend on that overtime to make ends meet as my straight pay is inadeqate to live on. Over the past four months I've been unable to earn any of the overtime that I need to maintain my household and my finances have reached a point of desperation now. I've tried to earn extra income by bidding on freelance work through a reputable agency, but have been unsuccessful in securing any viable contracts. Right now I am behind on my rent, and while the couple who owns my house are very kind and considerate of my situation, they are rightfully losing patience and I understand that they need their money very badly. I have been blessed to have this home to live in with my children and I don't want to lose it. I work very hard, and I strive to do the best I can, but I'm truly in such a deep financial hole that I can't make my current rent payment, much less catch up the amount I am behind. I'm confident that overtime will resume eventually, but that may not be for a few more weeks. Right now I have hardly any food in the house, my power bill is due in three more days and I need immediate help. I am willing to return to this site later, when my finances are more solvent, and help others - but today, will someone please help me? I need at least seven hundred dollars to make my rent and power bill payment. I have about two hundred at my disposal, but that will put me into overdraft at the bank. Is there someone out there with a big heart who can see my family through this difficult time? Thank you for taking the time to read my request.
