Family of 3 unemployed, Need Rent Help

My Story:

I am 66 years old and I live with my 58 years old wife and my 59 years old sister-in-law. I used to work as a drafting engineer at a small company and my wife is a hairdresser. We recently sponsored my sister-in-law from Vietnam and she is currently taking classes to study English.

We have moderate savings and live paycheck to paycheck. Due to Covid-19 outbreak, my wife and I have become unemployed. The salon where my wife work at is temporarily shut down. My company have laid off all of their employees, including me. We need Modest Needs help with one month of our mortgage.

This funding will provide my family with a sense of stability. The future is unsure with the Covid-19 situation, but we are trying to make the best of it. My wife is offering our relatives and neighbors hair cuts in return for any monetary donation. I am trying to seek new employment, but the shelter-in-place order and my age is making it difficult. I am teaching my sister-in-law English at home, hoping that she can find employment later on. Your help would be greatly appreciated as we hope to stabilize our lives. Thank you, God bless.
