After Returning from My Father's Funeral, My Fiance & I Both Lost Our Jobs & Can't Afford Rent!

My Story:

I am engaged to a wonderful man, and we have three cats: MoMo who is a gray domestic short hair, Mathis who is a black tabby Maine Coon with white socks, and June who is an orange domestic short hair. Both Brian and I lost our jobs over the last month and are relocating to Texas, to live with my family, so that we can get a better grip on our financial situation.

While both of us were working, Brian and I were able to make enough to cover our monthly bills and even had enough to put something aside. What little savings we had was wiped out when my father sadly passed away. We use what little we had to fly to Texas for the funeral in August, then we both lost our jobs shortly after that. We made the decision to relocate back to Texas after that, but we're still currently on the hook for our rent for at least another month, and we don't have any way to afford it. We're really afraid that if we can't pay our rent for this month, then it could jeopardize our prospects for finding a home in the future. It would be a permanent mark against us when we go to buy a home or even when we're just looking to rent.

This move back to Texas and everything we're doing right now is all geared towards trying to get back on our feet after losing my father and after we both lost our jobs. I know that we can get back on track and that we can do enough to get back on our feet, but I worry that once we get there, we'll be frozen out of finding a home if we can't pay for our current rental on time. With this generous assistance with our rent, we wouldn't have to worry about that and could continue to confidentiality build towards our future without the fear of never being able to find a new home looming over us. Knowing how meaningful this assistance would be to us, we want to be able to pay it forward to a family who's in a similar situation when we're able to. Finally, we would just like to say 'thank you' in advance to all of the compassionate and kind people who lend us a hand with our rent after we've experienced so much hardship.
