Underlying Conditions Have Kept Me Out of Work for Almost a Year, Now We Need Help Keeping Our Home!
I'm an African-American single mother, and I currently live with my boyfriend and my daughter who is 13 years old. My biggest goal right now is to return to school once the pandemic is over. I have degrees in Pre-Nursing Education and a degree in Health Education and Behavior, but I want to return to get my certification as a Medical Billing Specialist. I think that this move would help me further my career, thereby allowing my daughter and I some more stability. My boyfriend is employed as a driver at the local hospital, and he has been able to keep his job despite a reduction in hours due to Covid-19. We all cherish the free time that we get to spend together, and we love watching movies together more than anything.
As I said, my boyfriend has been able to keep his job but has had his hours reduced; however, I have several underlying conditions that put me at severe risk for Covid-19, and my physician has advised me to avoid public facing work. As a result, I've been out of work since the pandemic began, and with my boyfriend making less than before, we're really struggling heavily.
My greatest concern right now is with our rent because we're currently behind, and I'm worried that could lead to us being evicted soon if the moratorium expires or is overturned. We don't have anywhere else to go if we lose our home, and it would be a nightmare for my daughter and I to wind up in a shelter. I'm truly not sure how we would ever recover from that. So, I'm very humbly asking for help with catching up on our rent before something like that happens.
I'm hoping to be able to get back to work soon as vaccinations continue to rise, and once I'm back to work, we should be able to manage our situation better. This assistance would see us through an extremely difficult time, and it would put our lives back on track so that we can get through this pandemic once and for all without losing our home. Thank you in advance for your support, and your consideration is greatly appreciated by us.
