I'm an Essential Worker Receiving Only Part Time Hours. My Family Needs Rent Help!

My Story:

My fiance and I have been blessed with a bright and energetic boy. He is 5 years old and loves math, hot wheel cars, and playing outside. I am the sole provider for our family after my fiance was disabled years ago while attending college; he now takes care of our son and household.

I started working with my employer over five years ago and have worked my way up to a great position, yet Covid-19 has decimated our company. Normally, I make enough to cover our monthly expenses, but at this point we have used all we had saved to pay our bills because the hours just have not been there for us. It is hard being an essential worker that cannot get above 20 to 25 hours per week. We are just on our last legs this month and, specifically, we really need help paying the rent. I know we can pull ourselves out of this hole with a little help.

This assistance will keep a roof over our heads and allow us to breathe a bit knowing our family is safe from the threat of homelessness. I am really feeling the weight of our situation right now, and this help would relieve the crushing amount of stress I'm feeling. It would give us the time we need to return to a point of self-sufficiency once my hours are restored. Thank you for showing my family consideration and compassion during this difficult time.
