I'm Struggling to Keep My Home After a Gap in Employment! Please Help!

My Story:

I raised my daughter on my own as a single mother, and now she's 24 years old and is living her own life. Raising her to be the wonderful woman that she's become has been my greatest achievement, and I'm unbelievably proud of her. My second greatest achievement has been overcoming addiction. It's a constant battle, as anyone who has struggled with it knows, but I've been clean for over two years now after leaving rehab and finding a good job. I've been working in healthcare for the past 20 years now, and it's been a difficult career path to follow, but it's always rewarding at the end of the day.

This past month has been a difficult one for me financially speaking. I lost my job due to a strange situation. The physician that I was working for let me go because they found out that my mother is a patient at their practice. According to her rules, the physician said that I could no longer work at her practice because my mother was a patient there, so I had to leave my job. Since then, I've been able to find work again at the local hospital, but I'm struggling due to the gap in employment that I faced. My rent is coming due, and I can't afford to pay it because I haven't collected a paycheck from my new job yet.

My landlord is amazing and is very understanding, so I don't want to do anything to jeopardize my relationship with her, and truth be told, I don't know how far her understanding will extend if I'm constantly stuck behind on my rent. With that being said, I'm humbly asking for assistance with my rent. With this help, I'll be able to begin my new job, rebuild my finances, and stay on top of my bills going forward. For those reasons, I would deeply appreciate this assistance, and I promise to pay the generosity that I'm shown forward in the near future.
