I'm a Single Mom Looking for Affordable Housing After Losing Work to COVID! Please Help Me with Rent
I am a single mother of four children. I have three boys ages 17, 10, and 8 years old, as well as my daughter who is 6 years old. I am employed through Goodwill as a Direct Care Staff Professional working with developmentally disabled adults at a learning facility. I assist clients to and from classes and engage them in educational activities such as art classes, gym classes, and life skills classes, just to name a few. My sons all love video games and playing sports. My daughter is my mini me; she is incredibly wise beyond her little years and is so funny and creative! She enjoys doing gymnastics and playing with her friends.
I am seeking help with paying for my rent for next month. I have been able to get by the past couple of months with our household expenses even after being involuntary furloughed, but I have since exhausted my savings. I fear that I will get far behind on payments and risk losing our home.
This funding will allow us to stay in our home, but mainly, it will alleviate stress and restore our sense of stability. I recently attended an online orientation for section 8 housing, and have met all the requirements and been given a voucher so I can begin looking for an affordable home for me and my children. This help would tide us over until we could find more affordable housing and until I can get back to work. It would be such a blessing for my family to receive some help right now, and I know that we will never forget it. Thank you all for your compassion.
