I Recently Left an Abusive Situation, but I Need Help with Rent After Losing Work to COVID!
I'm a single woman living with my pet dog named Panda. We're inseparable, and we recently moved to Denver after leaving a toxic and abusive environment. I'm thankful to be out of that past situation, but it's been difficult to get by to be completely honest. I was working as a server before my restaurant was closed down due to the second huge Covid-19 spike. This is the second time I've been laid off due to Covid-19, and I haven't been able to find work again since then.
This second lay-off has lasted longer than expected, and the restaurants in my city are still barely opening up. I can't go back to work yet, and I'm stretched beyond my limit financially right now. I can barely afford groceries right now, and I applied for SNAP benefits but get very little in terms of those. However, I'm really concerned with my ability to pay rent right now because I'm worried I'll be evicted if I get really far behind on my rent. I'm behind on my rent for this month, and I'm asking for help with catching up on that so that I don't lose my home.
I'm working on finding employment somewhere else, but no one is hiring at all. I'm still hopeful that I'll find something that can tide me over until I can get back to working as a server again. I know I can get back to supporting myself with just a bit of a boost, and I'll be extremely grateful for this help. I'll never forget the help I receive, and I want to thank you all for it in advance.
