I Lost 2 Jobs in 1 Day to COVID & Need Help Keeping My Home Please!
I am a single 37-year-old with two elderly parents that I help take care of. I have always worked two jobs to support myself and help them. Most recently, I was working in a restaurant and at a local corner store. However, I lost both jobs due to Covid-19 shutdowns and have not yet been able to return to either. My family has already lost two people to this devastating pandemic, and we're about to be left homeless by it as well.
I lost both of my jobs on the same day and it broke my heart. I was at both of them for years, but on the same day the pandemic took both my livelihoods from me. I'm not used to not being able to provide for myself and my parents, and I'm really struggling to deal with that mentally. They raised me, so I feel that in their old age it's my job to help them when they need me. Not being able to provide them that help is a constant weight on my conscience. My savings are gone, and my unemployment isn't enough to cover anything. I desperately need assistance with my rent because without help, I'll be homeless next month.
If I can stay in my home for just a while longer, I'll be able to get back to a place where I can handle all of my bills again on my own. This would be huge for me and my family. I'll be able to continue to stay in my home and take care of my parents while I search for work. I'll be able to keep surviving until I can get back to a point of self-sufficiency again. I know that so many people have been decimated by this pandemic, and I want to do what I can to give back once I get help keeping my home. Finally, I want to say thank you, on behalf of my family, for this generous help and support during one of our darkest hours.
