COVID Forced Me to Change Jobs. I'm Behind On Rent & Need Help Before I'm Evicted!

My Story:

I'm a single, divorced woman who loves to help others. I live with the best cat ever! In my free time, I like to be with my wonderful friends, and I like to cook and bake because it helps me relax a lot. I also do yoga and meditation exercises to help me reduce and process stress. Currently, I work full-time as a customer service representative, and I have learned a lot from the experience and enjoy it a lot. I'm looking to work in human resources as a more permanent position.

Before the pandemic, I was employed as a massage therapist for 14 years, but I decided to reevaluate my career and took a job in customer service instead. This has given me more job security, but I earn less than I did now and am struggling to get by. I'm looking for a better paying position, but I need help to cover my rent in the meantime.

The pandemic forced me to change careers, and I'm just trying to make my way down a new path without getting to far off track. I'm afraid my landlord will evict me as soon as it is legally possible to, so I really need to get caught up on my rent before that happens. I would be forever grateful to receive this help, and it would bring me completely away from the brink of homelessness. I'm confident that I will be able to move to a better position soon, and with this help, I'll be able to keep my home until then. Thank you for your understanding and kindness.
