My husband is in jail. No power in our house for 7 days now. Please help us

$2,283 of $4,000 raised

raised by 38 people in 1 week

Please help us! For 7 days now we have had no power in our house. On Monday someone lent us a generator but we can't live off a generator forever and I need to return it. I am a single mother going through a bitter divorce and I keep having to shlep my two small children to the gas station to fill up cans of gas for the generator to run on. My water bill is also past due and needs to be paid or the water will be turned off too. 

Yesterday my soon to be ex husband was put in jail for 90 days for refusing to pay child support or the utility bills. He was ordered to pay them and decided to stop paying them and didn't notify me. I was on a payment plan with the power company but now that he hasn't paid it i no longer qualify for the payment plan and it must be paid in full for them to turn the power back on. It's around $1500.00. The water bill is around $220.00. 

My children have been through so much because of this situation and this is so unfair to them to have to live this way. I've spent hours on the phone today calling agencies and utility companies trying to get help with this and I can't. 

People had given us food and Tomche shabbos sent us food and I had bought food too and it all got spoiled when we lost power. Nothing in my fridge or freezer was good anymore after 5 days with no power.  It has been hot and sticky for the last few days and I can't do laundry right now either .

 

My soon to be ex husband can easily get out of jail by paying what he owes but he refuses to and would rather sit in jail for 90 days than help his own family. Up until this last month he actually was paying the utility bills, now that he has decided to stay in jail for 90 days we are obviously going to need as much help as we can get.

Please help me and my children.
