I'm in the Process of Downsizing, but I Need Help Keeping My Car or Else I'll Lose My Job!

My Story:

I'm a recently divorced veteran working full-time as a coordinator at a center that helps vulnerable adults with developmental disabilities. I take a lot of pride in my work, and I feel so honored to serve and advocate for my clients. I have remained at my job throughout the pandemic despite the threat of Covid-19.

Right now, I'm still working but am in the process of relocating. My husband left me, and in doing so, he left me with all of our bills as well. I can't afford to make our monthly bill on my salary alone, so I've decided that I have to downsize and find somewhere more affordable for me in the long-term. Thus far, I've been able to keep up with my rent and with buying groceries, but that's basically all I've been able to stay on top of. My biggest concern right now is the fact that I'm behind on my car payment and my utility bill. My car is my only means of transportation and without it, I could lose my job. That would take an already desperate situation and make it so much worse, and the same goes for if I lose service on my utilities. That's why I'm humbly asking for assistance with both of those bills.

Once I relocate, I'll be better placed to deal with my monthly expense. This is a short-term crisis, but it could quickly turn into a long-term hardship if I can't keep up with these two bills. This assistance would also be a huge boost in my effort to relocate to a smaller, more affordable home because I'll be able to put more towards a security deposit and my first month's rent. I would be so thankful to receive this assistance, and I promise to pay it forward once I'm able to find some security again. Thank you all for your kindness and generosity in advance.
