I'm a Mother of Four Who's Out of Work Due to COVID and My Family Needs Rent Help Please!
I'm a married mother of four children. When my two oldest were younger my husband was the provider in our home, but unfortunately, he had to sell his small business and our home. After that, I headed back to work while he stayed at home with the kids. He also has three blown discs in his back which played a role in our decision. I have been in the energy industry for over 14 years now and was laid-off due to Covid-19. My oldest child is attending a local college with hopes to transfer to a D-1 university for football. He has had to undergo two knee surgeries due to football injuries, and he is going to therapy but feeling better thankfully. My second oldest just left for Great Lakes, Illinois to attend boot-camp for the Navy. My two girls are in Junior High and High School and are looking forward to schools reopening. They are both highly creative; one draws and the other likes to learn about video editing.
Since I lost my job, things have been incredibly difficult for my large family. We're used to living paycheck to paycheck, but we're not used to living with no income. However, it is the situation we're faced with now after I lost my job because we receive almost nothing from unemployment since the benefits weren't extended. We're having a hard time even paying our rent, and we really need help with that bill before we get evicted.
I'm asking for help with our rent for this upcoming month because it will buy my family some time to get back to work. My husband and I have a lot of experience, and we are confident that we can get back to work soon as long as we can stay on track with our bills. This help would leave a lasting impression on my family, and it would inspire us to give generously to a family who is in our position later down the line. Thank you for the consideration and compassion you have shown my family just by taking the time to read this.
