Veteran Needs Rental Help After New Baby's Medical Bills Piled Up
I am a veteran who recently got out of the army in late 2016. Since I�ve been home I have been doing my best to stay afloat. My boyfriend and I live together, he is basically a struggling college student. My 9 month old son is super aggressive and energetic. He is still in the stages of seeing a doctor almost every other month or so.
We had our son last year November and I lost my job. I was working at Del-Air heating and air conditioning but the conditions of the job did not allow me to continue working here while pregnant. So while I was looking for some kind of work, my boyfriend was working two jobs and I drive Uber throughout the day. Once I reached around 8 months I was pretty much on bed rest so I could not work. After I had the baby the insurance I have with the VA took care of most of the bills but I still have a balance with the hospital. Now I am back working a full time job and he works a part time job so he can be home with our son. We need Modest Needs help with our rental payment after all of these medical bills.
We are devastated that we are in the position where we cannot pay our rent. This funding will keep us from being evicted and help us have the time to catch up on all of our bills without stressing over it so much. I will start receiving my housing allowance from the VA next month when I start school and we will be more than okay. Your help would mean the world to us.
