My Daughter Had a Medical Issue that Caused me to Miss Work. Please Help Us Keep Our Home!

My Story:

I am a single mother of four children. My 20-year-old daughter is currently suffering from psychogenic seizures which have greatly impacted her health and my ability to work full-time. When she is able to, she loses herself in the gaming world. My 15-year-old twins (boy and a girl) love to spend time with their older sister playing video games and are looking to venture out into the world of working next year. My 10-year-old daughter is very creative and loves playing board games with herself or with others. We all love to spend time with our two cats - Marianna and Sir William. I work full-time as an Administrative Assistant and part-time as a retail associate at Kohl's.

Between my two jobs, I earn just enough to pay for my basic expenses every month and tend to live from paycheck to paycheck. So, when my daughter started to have seizures about two months ago, it not only put her health in danger, but also our finances were severely impacted. I had to take time off of work to care for her, and even though I'm working two jobs, they haven't been enough to keep up with the income that I missed out on. Really, I'm just thankful that my daughter is in a more stable condition now in terms of her health, but I'm still deeply worried about our financial situation. We're not going to be in a position to make our rent for this month, and we could lose our home as a result.

Currently, I'm waiting for court ordered child support payments to begin, and I'm also still waiting for my income tax return; however, I'm worried that both could arrive too little and too late. If we're evicted before those two things kick in, then we'll lose everything, and it will be almost impossible to recover from that. In addition to losing our home, I'm worried about the strain that an eviction could have in terms of my daughter's health. For that reason, I'm asking for this generous assistance with our rent. I promise that this is something my children and I will never forget, and I promise to make sure that they always remember the story of this time when people came together to help us when we needed it most. Thank you.
