I Slept in My Car for 9 Months & Finally Found a Home, but I Need Help Keeping It Please!
I'm a single mother, and all of my children have grown up and are attending school out of state. For the past year, I've struggled to stay safe and healthy. I've also struggled to keep a job due to the pandemic. The job that I was working at last year ended up closing down completely because of the number of Covid-19 outbreaks there were.
When that job closed, I had no way to pay my rent. I was out of work for three months, and I lost my apartment and everything in it as a result. I started staying in shelters, but I was afraid of getting Covid-19, so I ended up sleeping in my car for almost nine months. I kept fighting and found a temporary job that finally gave me enough income to get a new apartment. However, I recently lost that job after contracting Covid-19. I was vaccinated relatively early on, but I ended up getting very sick with the virus and lost my temporary job because I was out of work for so long. I've found a new job working remotely, but I'm not going to collect my first paycheck in time to pay my rent this month and could lose my home as a result.
I was homeless for almost an entire year, and I can't imagine becoming homeless again, especially after recovering from Covid-19. I can't go back to sleeping in my car, so I'm humbly asking for assistance with paying my rent this month. Once I start collecting a paycheck from my new job, I'll be able to stay on track with my expenses, but I need help in the meantime. After a year of struggling, I'm finally on the verge of becoming stable again, but I'm also just as close to losing everything for the second time in a year. I would be so grateful to all of the people who keep that from happening and to everyone who gives me assistance with keeping my home. I want to say 'thank you' in advance for your kindness and generosity.
