My Family Got COVID and I Was Out of Work. We Need Rent Help Urgently Please!
I am a single mother to two wonderful children, my 14-year-old son and my 15-year-old daughter. We are a very active household and enjoy doing things together as a family. My son enjoys playing basketball and my daughter has a job doing babysitting and she loves going to the beach. I work at a healthcare facility to provide for my family.
Recently, I have been out of work due to the Coronavirus pandemic. My hours were previously cut as well from 40 hours and I was forced to use paid-time-off to bring my hours up to a full paycheck. On top of that, my family has all contracted Covid-19, forcing my children to stay home and myself to isolate for an extended period of time. Due to my current employment situation, I am currently unable to pay my rent that is due soon. I have also had an unexpected vehicle expense and I live paycheck to paycheck which makes it very hard to put aside any money for savings to help with these expenses.
I am requesting help with my rent as I fear my family will be evicted and we will have no place to go. Currently, I live several states away from family and do not have a place to go if we get evicted. Because of everything transpiring in our life right now, I am forced to reach out for help. The little money I had saved went to pay our car insurance, utilities, as well as to buy food and necessities for the house.
This will give us peace of mind for another month until I am able to return to work and, subsequently, return to paying all of our bills on time. More importantly than giving us peace of mind though, this will give us a place to live for the foreseeable future. It'll keep my family off the streets and out of shelters until we can get back on our feet again. I will be looking for ways to earn extra money on the side to help with these unexpected expenses, but in the meantime this help will reduce stress and it would be a blessing to a single parent household. Thank you all for your consideration.
