After Being Laid-off & Injured, I Need Urgent Help to Save My Home!

My Story:

I am a single African American woman living on my own. I worked full-time as a front gallery hostess in a hotel, while finishing my bachelor's degree. In my free time, I freelance from home to cover everyday expenses. I'm pretty much on my own now after leaving behind several familial relationships that were abusive, and I don't really have contact with anyone in my family as a result.

I lost my job as a front gallery hostess in 2020 due to COVID. In the time afterwards, I worked hard to engage in temporary work and apply to corporate positions, despite still living paycheck to paycheck. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, I recently suffered a broken bone injury that rendered me unable to go anywhere independently for the next three months. I am devastated but determined to make a speedy recovery; however, in the meantime, I desperately need help with my rent, so that I may continue to survive and seek permanent employment once I heal.

I've done my best to try to take care of my rent, but after my accident, I don't really have any other choice but to wait and heal from my injuries. This help would buy me the time that I need to recover and get back to work, and it would effectively save my ability to return to a point where I'm self-sufficient again. In fact, this will take loads of stress off of my shoulders, which will likely speed up my recovery process. I would be honored and humbled to receive this remarkably generous assistance and will be even more inspired and driven to help those in need, just as you have helped me. Thank you for taking the time to consider me for this help and thank you in advance for helping me keep my home.
