I Lost My Job to COVID & without Unemployment, We're Struggling to Keep Our Home!
I'm a single mother of one child, and I'm down to working part-time now as a result of COVID. It's difficult to provide for us while only working part-time, but until now, I've managed our bills fairly well. Before COVID, I was working two different jobs, one full-time and one part-time. I lost my full-time job almost a year ago, and my unemployment benefits have also recently run out too.
As a result of losing those unemployment benefits, we've fallen behind on our rent, and I'm worried that could lead to us being evicted. I have no way of getting those benefits renewed, so until I find work again full-time, we won't have any way of being able to keep up with our rent, let alone any way of being able to catch up with our rent. Most places still aren't hiring full-time employees, so I'm having a hard time of finding anything that will work in terms of allowing us to keep up with our rent and other expenses. In order to give us some more time, I'm humbly asking for help with our rent until I can find full-time work again.
I'm doing my best to keep up with our rent now and have been making partial payments to try to stay as current with our balance as possible, but I know that my landlord's patience will run out soon and that we could be evicted any week now. This assistance would be a tremendous help to us by allowing me to be able to stay in our home as a I search hard for new employment. The fear of eviction and the idea of being out on the street with my child really keeps me up at night, so I couldn't be more thankful to be relieved of that fear. It's been hard for us lately, but this help would turn things around for us in a huge way, and for that I want to say thank you in advance to all the generous people who help us keep our home.
