Family #306: BURLINGHAM, SULLIVAN COUNTY

“I am a single mom of two little girls. I live in my own home and struggle day today to keep her head afloat. Once the pandemic hit and my children’s schools were closed I can no longer work as a home health aide. Now unemployment says that my children should be able to be in a daycare setting and I should be able to go back to work. My older daughter is in kindergarten and most day cares especially the one they already went to will not take her as they do not have a kindergarten program or a way for her to do her online schooling. My younger one can only go to preschool 3 to 4 hours a day and I wouldn’t be able to work an eight hour shift which is required for my job. A little bit I do get from unemployment keeps a roof over our head and keeps us heated and warm up first very little if any extra for anything else. I do not receive child support as their dad is in and out of jail and when he does work it’s like pulling teeth to get any help. I do get food stamps to help and that is a greater help than they will ever know. Seeing my children with even one get it under the tree on Christmas would mean that I’m not failing as a mom but at this point that’s not an option for me. My mother What is a single mom and I saw how hard she struggles and I never expected to be in the situation but for the safety of my children I need it to be a single mom. Anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your consideration”
