I'm an Essential Worker Battling COVID but After Isolating, I Need Help Keeping My Home!
I live on my own and am an essential worker. I work as a caregiver and am responsible for caring for Covid-19 patients directly. I've worked through the entire pandemic, and it's been very difficult on me, but I still love my job and take a lot of pride in working with my patients. It seems like Florida has been the epicenter of the pandemic for almost the duration of it, and it never really seems to die down here.
Lately, cases here have been out of control, and we're facing another surge. Coming into contact with more Covid-19 patients has forced me to quarantine multiple times, and it's starting to weigh on me financially. I've exhausted all of the PTO I'm allowed and am not paid when I have to quarantine, so the last time I had to take time off work, I had to do so without pay for two weeks. As a result, I haven't been able to pay my rent for this month and have already received a notice to pay or vacate. I desperately need help with my rent or else I'll lose my home.
I'm really frustrated with my employer and with the circumstances that have gotten me into this predicament, but I want to get back to work so that I can continue to care for my patients. However, I'm afraid that if I lose my home, I won't be able to do that. Truly, caring for my patients is the only thing driving me forwards right now and losing that would be devastating. This generous assistance would put an end to those fears, and it would help me get back on track with my finances once again. It will even give me the opportunity to put away more for a rainy day fund in case I have to quarantine again. I love what I do, and I love being able to help others, so I would be incredibly appreciative to all of the people who help me keep my home so that I can continue to serve my patients to the best of my ability.
