I'm a Single Mother & Nurse Trying to Help My Daughters, but We Need Help with Our Rent Please!
I am a recently separated mother of an 18-year-old and a 19-year-old daughter. My youngest daughter is in culinary school to become a pastry chef, and my oldest daughter is currently out of school but is looking to go back to school in the fall 2022 for business. She loves fashion and hopes to find work in that industry when she finishes her degree. We love spending time together as a family whenever possible, but I work a lot and attend school, so sometimes it's difficult. I am a Registered Nurse and am going back to school for my master's degree.
We had a rough end of the year last year. It started when my husband and I separated, and things just seemed to get worse from there. My daughter began to struggle mentally, and then wound up in a car wreck. Thankfully, she was okay aside from some bumps and bruises, but she started to miss work and school and has just had a rough time handling me and my husband separating. My younger daughter has been struggling with her mental health as well and had to be hospitalized. It's all been too much for me to handle while also trying to work as a nurse during the middle of the pandemic, and I even ended up getting shingles due to the amount of stress that I've been under. So, I decided to take some an FMLA, and that's been extended because we've all also contracted COVID. As a result of this situation, I've been out of work and have missed a whole paycheck. Now, we're going to fall behind on our rent this month and need help catching up before we're evicted.
Needless to say, our situation is already extremely precarious, so I'm terrified of what an eviction would put us through now. I'm scared for the sake of my daughters, so as their mother, I have to humble myself now and seek the assistance that we so desperately need if we're going to make it through this. My family is struggling right now, my daughters are struggling, but I know that this assistance would give us the opportunity that we need to move beyond this hardship. Not only will we be able to keep our home, but I know how powerful it would be for my daughters to see that there is still gentle kindness in this world. As for myself, I will never forget the kindness and compassion we're shown. Thank you all in advance.
