Coronavirus: Big Family Out of Work Needs Rent Help
My husband and I have been married for 15 years. Altogether, we have three children and four grandchildren. We are a large, tight-knit family, and we try to all get together at least once a month to do something we enjoy. My father taught me that family is everything and I have instilled that in my children since they were born, and they have done the same to theirs. We always take care of each other no matter how difficult the circumstances are.
That being said, the circumstances have recently become incredibly difficult to manage since the pandemic began. I was laid-off from my job as a result of it and my husband has had his hours reduced as well. Just three days after I was laid-off, my middle child and my 2-year-old had to move back in with us. Then recently, my son has asked to move back in with us as well. My husband and I feel extremely overwhelmed right now because we have three more mouths to feed and basically no income to do it on. My children have always looked to me for guidance, but I feel that right now I need some assistance myself. We could really use some help paying our rent right now because that would free up money for us to pay for groceries and other bills.
This will buy my family and I the time that we need to come up with a budget that will work for the short-term until we can all get back to work. We really need time to regroup after taking in our two children and our grandchild and this funding would give us exactly that. I am confident that we will be okay in the near future because my husband's hours should return to normal soon and I will also be able to find work soon. Thank you all for your help in advance; it really means a lot to me and to my family. I promise that we will repay the kindness we have received once we are back on our feet.
