Hello: I would like to thank each and everyone of you that supported my need for assistance. You generous support will help me and my family at this most unfortunate time in our live.

I Work as a Contact Tracer for COVID, but I Need Help Keeping My Home Please!
I'm a single mother of three lovely children, two daughters and a son. My oldest daughter is 11 years old, and she loves dressing up, drawing, and watching 'Tik Tok.' My youngest daughter is 7 years old and is a girly-girl who loves makeup, doing her nails, and styling her hair. My son is 9 years old and loves school and video games. All of my children are schooling from home due to the pandemic, and they all really can't wait to go back when it's over.
I work for the Department of Public Health's Contact Tracing and Case Investigation unit currently, and it's my job to handle contact tracing for Covid-19. I really like the work that I do, and I feel like I'm doing something really important in my community. However, I've always pretty much lived paycheck to paycheck, so we've never had room for added expenses. That's why having all three of my young children at home 24/7 has been incredibly strenuous on our finances. Our utility bills have gone up, our grocery bills have gone way up, and on the weekends, I have to pay for a sitter to watch my children while I work. Currently, I'm most worried about falling behind on our rent for this month and being evicted or not being able to get our lease renewed down the line.
I'm asking for help with our rent so that we can keep our home, but I'm also asking because it will free up enough of my income to go towards other bills as well. Having a month of rent taken care of would be huge for my family right now because we're currently behind on our phone and car payments; getting this help would allow me to get fully caught up on both of those bills. This would be such a blessing to me and my children, and we would be incredibly grateful for the security and stability it would give us during these chaotic times. We'd like to end this by saying 'thank you' to everyone who even considers helping us in our time of need.
