Transition from Homelessness, Please Help With Electric Bill

My Story:

am a 46 year old single woman who works full time. I just fell down on my luck these past several months. I am an Executive Housekeeper and I have worked for Landmark Hotel Group for four years.

My horror Story began in 2017 when my 27 year old son and I decided to rent a place together. Two months after moving in my son quit both of his jobs leaving me to pay all of the rent and bills for the remainder of the lease. I went to my landlord to see what I could do to evict him but he told me that I would have to bring him to court being that he was on the lease and it would probably take months and money to see anything done. My son then started drinking and became verbally and mentally abusive towards me so in order to get away I would use what ever money I had to rent a hotel room for the nights that he was extremely intoxicated. When we finally came to the end of our lease, I tried getting another place but because my credit score was so low no one wanted to rent to me. I was able to stay with a friend temporarily but that did not last long. God gave me the courage to reach out and ask my General manager if I could stay at the hotel where I work and he was generous enough to help me out for free so that I could save my pay check to get an apartment. I have been approved for an apartment, he was willing to rent to me despite my credit. After moving costs and deposits, I need help with past due electric bill that was transferred to my new account.

I am not able to pay it myself in the ten days they gave me to satisfy it after my move in or my electric will get shut off. If you are able to assist me It would take so much stress off of me. I will be able to sleep at night knowing that everything is taking care of and I can finally get my life back on track. Thank you so much for your time.
