Single Man Taking Care of Mother Needs Rent Help After Moving Expenses

My Story:

I'm divorced and I'm currently working fulltime as a Security officer for a hotel in Miami Gardens. My mother who is 76 years old lives with me and I'm also her caregiver. She was recently operated on for colon cancer, luckily it was caught on time and the cancer was removed. I am happy to report she�s doing great now.

Well about 2 months ago while I was moving from one address to another, I had enough money saved up to make the move and I was also transitioning from another security job to a pawnshop Manager. This job that was offered to me only lasted about 2 1/2 weeks due to them not being able to afford the salary they agreed to pay me. This completely took me by surprise and left me in a bind after moving expenses and I was unemployed for a about 2 months. I got a new job in security but need help catching up. I need Modest Needs help with my rental payment.

I'm afraid that if I don't receive this help I will be evicted from home, I don't want to be left in the streets or in a shelter with my elderly mother who has gone through so much already with the colon cancer operation. Your help would save us. Thank you in advance and God bless!
