After Losing My Old Home to Mold, I Need Help Keeping My New Home Please!
I am a single mom with a grown son who lives out of state. I work as a part-time home care worker, helping seniors to keep up their homes and to age comfortably. I take a lot of pride in my work and in serving my patients. When I'm not working, I like to go for long walks and enjoy the scenery of fall. After a long year of COVID restrictions, I look forward to being able to go back to church and find community again there.
In addition to the pandemic, this year has brought along other difficulties and hardships that I've had to adjust to. In July, I was forced to move out of my home due to issues with mold. In the process of moving, I also ended up having to throw away a lot of my items due to the mold infestation. I lost my winter coat and a lot of other clothes, and the cost of replacing them has been fairly expensive. However, relocating has been the hardest part because I had to spend almost everything I had saved in order to move out of my old, mold-infested home. All of this had been made even more difficult by the fact that I lost hours during the pandemic and have still yet to have them restored.
My biggest concern is with my rent and with staying in good standing with my new landlord. They aren't evicting people right now due to the pandemic, but I'm worried that they'll begin doing so again in 2022. I'm worried that if I fall behind and incur late fees, I won't be able to catch up and could eventually lose my home. Having help with my rent would buy me more time to recover my lost hours and get back on top of my other expenses as well. For that reason, I would feel very humbled and grateful to receive this generous help with my rent. Thank you in advance for your kindness, and I promise that I will do my best to pay this forward when I can.
