I'm Doing My Best, but We're In Danger of Falling Behind on Our Rent & Need Help Please!

My Story:

I'm a family-driven, single mother, and I live with my son, my mother, and my brother. We all do our best to look after each other, and I'm really glad that my son gets to grow up with them as big parts of his life. We all work hard to provide for each other, but I'm the only one who's been able to continue to work after the pandemic. I work full-time for a childcare company, and I'm also a student.

After my mom and my brother were laid-off, I'm the only one left to pay the bills. They were both getting unemployment until recently, but since those benefits ended, I've been having to take care of the bills on my own. It's been pretty much impossible for me to do, and I've kept up with as much as I could, but we're really close to falling behind on our rent and need help before we incur too many late fees to be able to catch up.

I'm really terrified that my entire family will be out on the streets unless I can find some help for us. My mom is working on getting her benefits restored but the process has been moving at a snail's pace because so many people need help right now. She was working as a teacher before this, but since the schools have been shut-down, she's been out of work. Without any help, I'm worried that we'll fall behind on our rent at a crucial time. We would be so incredibly grateful to anyone who can lend us a generous hand during this difficult period for my family. Your help will keep us from being homeless, and for that we want to say thank you in advance for your kindness and compassion.
