I am writing to give many thanks to your Organization and all the wonderful donors for being generous enough to help me financially. Your caring support means a lot to me and has given me so much relief. I recall getting the email that my application was fully funded and was in complete disbelief. I did everything I could to hold back tears. I can now come home and not be concerned about being homeless. My son and I now have stable housing,power and water because of caring people like you. You have made a significant impact in my life and I know there is no way I could fully express my gratitude.� You guys a truly exceptional and I cannot thank you enough.�
I Had to Isolate & Lost Hours at Work. Without a Full Paycheck We Can't Pay Rent & Need Help Please!
I am a certified optician and a single mother to one little boy. My son is 10 years old and full of fun. He's extremely intelligent and has tested the highest in his school in English, Math, and Art. I'm incredibly proud of my son, and he's the reason I get up and go to work every morning.
I consider myself extremely fortunate to have been able to maintain my employment through the pandemic; however, we've experienced several hardships lately that have made it difficult to get by. We've had several unexpected deaths in the family that have been hard to deal with emotionally, but also financially. In addition to that my hours at work have been reduced significantly, and I recently had to quarantine without pay due to Covid-19 exposure. All of these added expenses have made it impossible for me to keep up with our rental payments, and we're really close to being evicted because we're so far behind. I'm humbly asking for help with our rent because it would save our home until my hours go back to normal.
Our landlord is already seeking a judgement against us, and I'm really worried that we'll be hit with a pay or vacate notice soon. With this help, we'd be current on our rent again and would be able to keep our home until I can get all of my hours back. I'm already planning for a situation where I don't get my hours back as well, and I recently interviewed for a new position that will pay better and more consistently than my current one. I promise that once we're able to, we'll return this generosity in full. Thank you all for your consideration and kindness during this difficult time.
