I Raised Two Children as a Single Mother, and COVID Forced Me Out Of Work. Now I Need Help with Rent
I am a 50-year-old female, that raised two children alone. I now enjoy spending time with my two granddaughters who are the light of my life! My daughters are both grown up and are on their own with their children. Currently, I work at an auto lot as a lot coordinator.
In March 2020, my hours were cut down to one day a week, 5 hours in total. I lived on very little income that I received every two weeks, and I was denied all unemployment benefits. They told me I made more money than I was allowed to in order to receive the benefits. My landlord had set me up on a payment arrangement from April through August, so I have been able to keep up with all of the payments. However, that plan is coming to an end and they are intent on collecting the back payments that I owe them for my rent.
I have had very little income over that course of time due to the pandemic, and I am sure that without help, I will be evicted. Simply put, if I get this assistance, then I will be able to keep my home. These are difficult times, but I know that if I can get the help I need, then I will be back on my feet and I will be able to pay my bills on time again. Thank you all for your help and for your consideration.
