I Lost Work After Getting Pneumonia & Need Help Keeping My Home!

My Story:

I'm a single woman living on my own with my seven month old puppy, Bella. She's keeping me company while I'm looking to return to school to obtain my master's degree in forensic psychology. As I look to return to school, I'm working full-time for a car warranty service company.

I work full-time but ended up getting sick towards the end of October with the flu, and I had to miss work. Over time, that illness developed into pneumonia, and I had to miss work for even longer. Overall, I've been out of work for over a month now, and I'm constantly going back and forth with my company to allow me to return to work. The problem on their end is that they're so short-staffed they aren't even opening some locations, which is why they're hesitating to schedule me. I've been without any income for over a month, and now, I'm going to come up short on my rent.

Right now, there's nothing stopping me from being evicted, and if that happens, I don't have anywhere to go. I'll have to take my dog and go to a homeless shelter. I'll lose my job and will have to put my dreams of returning to school completely on hold. I don't know how I would ever recover from becoming homeless, so I'm very humbly asking for assistance with my rent before it's too late. I know that I can get back on track when I'm able to return to work, but until then I would be very grateful for this assistance, and I promise to pay it forward in the near future. Thank you in advance for the kindness I'm shown. I will never forget this.
