After Losing My Job at the Warehouse to COVID, I Need Urgent Help to Keep My Home!
I'm a single man living alone with my recently adopted dog, her name is Coquita. She's a very active 5-year-old pit that loves to play with her toys 24/7. Before the pandemic began, I was working full-time at a warehouse, and I was always able to provide for myself relatively easily. The restrictions forced our warehouse to close down, and now I'm out of work for the time being.
While I was working paycheck to paycheck before Covid-19, I was able to cover my expenses month-to-month; however, now that I'm out of work and the unemployment benefits have been reduced, I'm really struggling to keep it all together. I had a little saved up, but that's run out, and now, I'm in a really desperate situation where I could very soon be faced with homelessness. I'm currently behind on my rent for December and don't see any way of being able to make my January rent as well pay my overdue rent. I don't have any family around to help me if I lose my home, so I will almost certainly have to go to a shelter or to the streets for shelter.
This is the first time I've ever been in a situation like this, and I really don't know what I'm going to do if I lose my home. I'm working hard to secure work again, but the lockdowns have intensified again and are making it hard to find any work at all. This help would make a huge difference to me immediately, and I would be able to keep my home while I search for work. In the long run, I hope to contribute to someone who needs help like I do now because I know how important it can be to get a little bit of extra help when you're on the brink. Thank you for taking the time to read my story and for your compassion and kindness during these hard times.
