My Hours Have Slipped Due to COVID, & I Need Help Keeping Up with My Rent!
I am a single woman living on my own, but I have friends, a family, and a community that I always try my best to impact positively. I have a 12-year-old Chihuahua who I adore and love with all my heart. I work hard to remain self-sufficient and stable, and I am an esthetician who works at a skin care clinic.
I live literally paycheck to paycheck. I'm on the strictest budget imaginable, and I usually only have enough money to eat, pay rent, and pay my utilities. This is because my income has dropped significantly as a result of the pandemic. We don't have as many customers coming in, so my hours have been significantly reduced as a result, and I'm really struggling to maintain my financial situation. As my hours continue to slip further and further, I'm really worried about being able to pay my rent for this month. So, I'm very humbly asking for assistance with paying my rent so that I don't lose my home.
I've fought back from a lot of hardship in the past year. I was actually homeless last summer, and I spent a lot of time and effort into finally getting my life back on track. I was able to find the apartment that I currently live in, but now that I'm on the brink of losing it again, I'm terrified. I'm so afraid of becoming homeless again, but I know that if I can just make it through this next month, I'll be able to get back on track again. I would be so grateful for your assistance, and I promise to pay it forward once I'm able.
