Navy Veteran Needs Rental Help After Job Loss

My Story:

I am married to my husband, a Navy Veteran. He is also a 9/11 first responder survivor. We take care of my mom who has mental illness. We both work full time, I recently started working as a teacher's aide in a special needs classroom.

My husband lost job last month which caused a financial set back. He was able to get a new job quickly, but as we live paycheck to paycheck we didn't have a safety net for the gap of income. I just started my job and my income has been able to cover lights and food but we have fallen behind on other bills. If we are able to get this help we would be able to finally be financially stable as this would be 1st year in 11 years we are both working. We need you help with rent to avoid eviction.

It will allow us to keep roof over our head, to focus on our new jobs and stop living paycheck to paycheck. We can start getting sound with our money and in return will allow us to pay it forward. Your help would mean so much to our family.
