Help for single parents

Pay it
Forward

1 value Virtual OK

I was a single mom for 17 years. Two biological kids, three foreign exchange students and one foster kid over the years. When I got divorced I was making $850 a month, and didn't get child support. I got into, and then out of debt over the next few years, as I basically had to start from scratch. I bought and sold three houses since then, both my kids are in college, and the only debt I have is my current mortgage. I feel I have a fair bit of experience under my belt that I would love to offer single parents who are struggling. It's more along the lines of how to be poor more comfortably, lol. But you know what? I have a great relationship with my kids, and it's because of the way we lived while they were growing up. Need a shoulder? Have a question? Just need a reminder to breath? Reach out, I'd love to help in any way I can.

Training & Qualifications


Again... just experience! I learned a lot of things the hard way, and just want to help someone maybe have a little easier time. I love to help, and wish I'd had someone to turn to when I was deep in it, so hoping I can provide that to someone else.

Availability & Preferences

Trading Preference: Pay it forward – pass on the good deed!

About Elisa Welch

I wish I'd found a place like this as a single mom! There are so many things we all have to offer, and even the smallest thing may make someone's day, week or month. Looking forward to exploring this... site in more depth. I love the idea of discovering that I might have knowledge or a skill that could be just the thing that someone else is looking for. I hope that this spreads so that there end up being more Simbi users in my immediate area. Also looking forward to building new relationships, there are definitely some very interesting looking souls on this site!show more
