Court Ordered Eviction Notice - Single Mother Desperately Needs Rent Help

My Story:

I am single mother of an 11 year old daughter. She is currently in 6th grade, loves drawing and animation and she is learning how to play the violin in orchestra class. I recently started working full time as a secretary. I do everything I can to provide for my daughter and myself.

I live paycheck to paycheck with no savings. Life can be very difficult and sad sometimes, especially when you want to give your child a glimpse of nice experiences, but you can't always do that. I had to pay for my daughter to go to summer camp this year in order for me to work full time and that was very expensive and has caused a bit more of a setback. With back to school time, I also had to pay for supplies and new clothes which she grew out of. I desperately need help with my rent payment right now.

This funding will bring our household up to date with bills and provide us with some sense of relief. I don't have family that can assist me in any major way. I struggle on my own and it can feel frustrating, stressful, and hopeless at times. However, I know that if I am able to get this assistance, I will be able to get back on my feet and find a way to keep pushing forward. I would love to be able to have a savings one day so that in emergency situations, I can help myself more. I am doing my best to raise my earning potential, while working full time I also go to school full time with the hopes of getting my certificate in medical billing/coding. I don't want my daughter worrying about where we are going to live or how we are going to get by. I want her to still be able to be and feel like a kid. If anyone could help I would truly be forever grateful.
