Unexpected Medical Leave Left Single Mother of 3 Short on Rent

My Story:

I am a single mother of 3 children, ages 15, 11 and 7. They enjoy sports and outdoor activities. We are very close tight knit family, since my divorce my kids do not leave my side.

I recently had a career change that impacted my annual income a great deal. My kids and I down sized from our 4 bedroom home to a 3 bedroom apartment. We have had some unexpected expenses since march of this year. I had to have an emergency hysterectomy and was without pay for 3 weeks. I had just started my new job and had not accrued enough paid time off or sick leave. I still had to pay for daily expenses groceries, school meals etc. I am asking for assistance for rent.

I paid partial payments (what I could) so that I was not evicted but it has just added up. I'm so over whelmed and at a loss for help. Your assistance will allow me to get out of debt I can catch up bill especially my car payment so that can continue to get to work daily. I am currently looking for a second job (weekends) to help build my savings again. Your help would mean so much to us.
