My Two Heroes

My name Is Raiyshawn (Ray) Battle. I am not disabled, but I am a single father of two boys.

I recently had to move back in with my mother for financial reasons that would benefit us both.

Other than being a hard worker whenever I am given an opportunity, I am more than proud to be a father and put taking care of my children above ALL.

I am currently unemployed. With my mother recently unemployed, we're at a financial stand still.

On top of that I am a single father doing the best I can with little to support my kids. I share custody with their mother.

Since she receives benefits I cannot. This is even though doctor and county records will show they have shared the same living situation as me. Still I do not qualify.

The cost of living continues to go up. Bills pile up. The mortgage at our residence is close to $1500 a month.

The last steady source of income I've had was almost two years ago. I've had two contracting jobs since then. Both brought in around $500.

I continue to look for work daily and am always in the market for whatever odd job becomes available.

I guess I'm looking for any kind of financial assistance that would help sustain me while I continue to look for employment, without worrying where the next meal is coming from.

I do not receive any benefits for my children because their mother does. This is even though we are not together.

Thank you for any help you can provide or point me to.
