Kristen is a single working mom of two. She is newly involved with Peter Paul programming and is working on building positive community supports and long term financial stability. She works full time but is only making enough to cover basic essential and household bills. She recently hit a very large pothole on her way to pick her kids up from school that has damaged her vehicle. She needs assistance repairing the axle to get her car safely back on the road. Help with this repair will make all the difference , as it will affect how much time she will be out of work and whether this remains a minor setback or becomes a major financial issue.
