My name is Ciara and I am looking for a used or slightly used car. I am 5 months pregnant and currently unemployed and it is simply just to hard to work while im pregnant. I need transportation to get back and forth from doctors appointments.I also plan to start school this fall and it will be kind of difficult catching the bus back and forth. I just hate to ask and beg people to take me. So i want to be able to do stuff myself and not to ask anybody for anything. So if anyone can help I would really appreciate it..Thanks sooo much!!!

Hi rwagster

I understand depression. I have fought it all my life. Please remember that you need to keep pushing yourself past the depression in order to move forward. It seems impossible sometimes , but believe me , if I can do it anyone can . Michigan has been the "Auto capital" yet we are on the bottom of the totum pole as far as available jobs and the car industry is a joke. Then there are people like you and I . Single moms , just trying to survive . I wish I had an immediate fix for this , but I too keep searching for answers. I do promise you though , if I find any help at all for those of who live in Michigan , I will be posting it so we can all move forward.

I am a single mother that goes to school full-time and lives in Michigan. I cannot find a job anywhere in this state, and am desperately in need of a new vehicle. I have a disabled child and her social security and TANF is our only means of income. I have bad credit from an old credit card which disables me from getting a car even though I can make the payment. Please help I'm running out of options and am getting severely depressed.

Hi, my name is vanessa. I am a single mother of two wonderful boys 12 and 5 years old. I am disabled and cannot get around to places we need to get due to lack of transportation. It is very difficult for me to get out of bed everyday but on the days God graces me with energy and less pain, I do want to be able to go to the store and buy groceries for myself without having to ask or beg people to take us. I struggle every month to be able to just make small monthly payments on our utility bills and my children have really learned to go without a lot of things they sometimes need or even just want; like most kids. I am truely blessed to have children that understand when i tell them, "sorry not this time, maybe next time." It really hurts me to see there sad faces, especially when my oldest comes home from school telling stories of what his friends did on their weekends or where they went. I don't mean to sound pathetic or tell sob stories but you see we truely are in need of a vehicle. Especially for groceries once a month and doctors appointments. I don't want to reschedule any more appointments due to lack of transportation because the person i ask has last minute things to do.. So please if any one can help me or knows where i can get help with free transportation please, please, please help me.... Thank you soooo much.

Hi. My story is not as sad as some and I almost feel bad trying to find help here. If anyone knows any places in Bowling Green, KY that will help with a major car repair (cam shaft, locked up motor) please let me know. I am a single mother of 3 children and i work in a fast food restaurant. I just bought the car 2 months ago with my tax refund, so I'm tapped out for cash. We have some sort of public transportation, but it doesn't go everywhere and has awful time constraints. As a result I can't work as much as I was and I can't make it to any dr.s, food stamp or any appts that me or my kids have. Any help to get me started on my search would be helpful.
