COVID Took a Toll on Me & I Need Help Keeping Our Home Please!

My Story:

I'm a single mother of one. I've done my best to keep working hard through this pandemic, but it's been difficult to get by. It's really changed our lives and made things harder than they've ever been.

I contracted Covid-19 and lost my job, but then gained it back shortly afterwards. The mental health side effects of the pandemic have been impossible to deal with, and my doctor also believes that having Covid-19 could have exacerbated symptoms of anxiety and depression that I was feeling. At first, I lost my ability to focus on my job, but then I slowly started to have so much anxiety that I would cry after every phone call I had to answer. I was referred to a psychiatrist and was given a range of treatments. That didn't help at all, and at one point I even started to hear voices, so I had to demand my medication be changed. All of this led to me being terminated from my job but then brought back after they reneged on my termination, and now we're really struggling to get by. Even though I'm working again, my paycheck has been cut in half, and I can't afford my rent and water bill for this month.

I've tried to arrange something of a payment plan with the leasing office, but I haven't had any luck at all and need urgent help to keep my home. If I can find a way to get help with this month's rent and water bill, then I'll be completely back on my feet again. I won't have to worry about my son and I being thrown out on the street, and I can focus on recovering my mental health again. Thank you all in advance for your kindness and support in helping us keep our home.
