Out Of Work Due To Illness, Need Rent Help

My Story:

I am recently widowed, 60 year old woman. I am learning to live by myself which is challenging at times. I volunteer in my community to encourage others to pursue music, and art expression. I currently work as a data entry clerk at a local resort hotel.

I earn enough to support a simple life, living paycheck to paycheck. I had no savings set aside when I got sick about 8 weeks ago. I had very little sick and vacation time available, and had to pay the insurance premiums and buy additional medications I needed. I have recently returned to work, but will not have enough to cover rent. I am worried that I will lose my apartment and independence.

The unexpected illness has derailed my sense of stability. Modest Needs assistance with the rent will enable me to get back on track financially. I have felt like everything is whirling out of control. I have been constantly in fear about losing my apartment and worrying about how I am going to have the money pay for everything. With the financial assistance, I will finally have some sense of security.
