I Relocated for Work but Was Laid-off Months Later! please Help Me Keep My Home!

My Story:

I'm single and don't have any children. Last year, I received my master's degree in healthcare administration, and I moved from St. Louis to Indiana after being offered a job at Amazon. I moved in January and was really looking forward to getting my career underway after getting my degree; however, my employer had other plans. I went to work in January, but I was let go of in June of this year. Now, I'm looking to go back to school to get my nursing degree because I really have a passion for it, and it would alleviate some of my financial hardship.

Amazon paid for me to move here, and at the time I was able to afford my accommodations. However, now that I've been laid off and have had to find work elsewhere, I've been struggling to get by. I'm making about $10 per hour less than what I was making, so I'm in over my head in regard to my monthly expenses. I'm thankful to at least have found some work, and I even got my bartender's license and have been doing some events to get by, but that work has slowed down more as the winter approaches. Now, I desperately need assistance with my rent because I'm significantly behind and could lose my home without assistance.

Simply put, losing my home would be catastrophic for me because I don't have anywhere else to go. I also work from home, so I'd be out of a job as well. However, if I do get this help, I'll be able to keep my home, pay my bills on time, and look towards getting my financial situation under control. I'm working on both trying to downsize and pick up more work, and once I do that, I'll be in a much better position going forward. I've fought so hard and through so much this past year, so I would be deeply grateful and appreciative of any support I receive with my rent. I promise to never forget the kindness that I'm shown, and I promise to work hard to pay it forward.
