I Was Out of Work for 1 Month This Summer. I Have a New Job But We're Going to be Evicted. Help!
I am a single mother of two growing children. My 6 year old daughter is a bright young girl who loves to read and has a passion to learn. My 5 year old son is an energetic and imaginative individual who loves pretending to be superman.
Unfortunately, I don't get any child support from my kids' dad. I have to take care of them on my own, and we're just barely getting by, but we've been making it. Then, in July this year, I was laid off from my previous employer. I scrambled & got a new job as fast as I could, and it's a much better job than I had before. I'm now doing billing for a law firm and I love it. But that one month without any income really put us behind. I had a little money saved, but we used that to eat and buy gas, so I got behind on the rent, and this month I wasn't able because I didn't get a full month's pay. Our landlord is now threatening to evict us, and if that happens, we have nowhere to go.
I've worked so hard to make sure my kids have what they need and right now, I'm feeling like kind of a failure because unless someone helps us, we're going to lose our lose our home. But I have no choice but to ask for help with our rent just this once. If we can just get this one month's rent paid, it will bring my household current with all my bills. It will give me a chance to start my savings again and I will be able to maintain my expenses again! This funding will give my children and I a fresh start and a sense of stability in the long term. Thank you for taking time to read this. I'm so grateful for any help you can offer.
