COVID Stole My Job & I'm Set to Lose My Home. Please Help Me Buy the Time I Need to Get Back to Work

My Story:

I'm a single lady who's recently moved to Tampa, FL, where, for the first time in my life, I'm totally on my own. Even though my dream is to return to college so I can finish my degree in Psychology, with no family to lean on for help, right now, that's just not a possibility for me. So, shortly after I got to Tampa, I started looking for work & found a good job as a legal secretary. That job has been paying the bills while I save up to return to my studies.

I've never been rich and have had to work hard all of my life, so I'm used to living hand-to-mouth. But I'm not used to being laid off with almost no notice, but that's where I am right now. The law firm I work for closed when my state ordered a quarantine, and even though that quarantine is over, the law firm still hasn't reopened. I've been looking for a new job since it became clear that my old job wouldn't be availble to me for a long time, but very few people are hiring and I'm still looking for work. But right now, I have a bigger problem: I've gotten behind on my rent & my landlord has given me an eviction notice. I have no one to turn to for help, so thanks to COVID, for the first time in my life, I'm truly facing homelessness.

I know I'll be able to find a job soon because I'm determined & won't give up. What I need most is the time to finish my job search and get back to work. If you would please consider helping me with my rent, you wouldn't just be keeping me off the streets, you'd be buying me the time I need to continue taking care of myself. Thank you very much for reading and for helping if you can.
