I'm Trying to Care for My Mom, but We Both Lost Work & Need Help with Rent Please!

My Story:

I live with and care for my 67-year-old mother who is the most caring and compassionate person that I know. We share our home with my dog Pickles who is very protective but loves attention and the occasional treat. Currently, I'm unemployed and my mother is on medical leave due to a heart condition that has kept her from working her part-time job as a cashier. As a result, we're both getting by on her social security income, so it's been difficult to keep up with all of our bills.

I was working as recently as three days before Christmas when I was suddenly let go of. Since then, we've had an impossible time trying to keep up with our rent and other bills. We didn't have any savings to fall back on when I was let go of, and I've been scrambling to find any work that I can, but I haven't had any luck so far. On top of that I had scrape together what I could to take my dog to the vet because he was having serious problems with his teeth. Now, we're in a serious financial bind and aren't going to be able to pay our rent this month, so I'm seeking help with our rental payment before we fall behind and get evicted.

I'm really worried at the prospect of us becoming homeless, but it's really taking a toll on my mother. She worries every day about the rent, and I'm fearful that the increased stress is only exasperating her heart condition. Every day I am applying for whatever jobs I'm qualified for, and my mother is hoping to return to work after getting the okay from her cardiologist. In the meantime, we really need this assistance if we're going to avoid eviction, and we would be so blessed and grateful to receive it. This would buy us the time that we need to get back to work, and it would save our home and possibly my mother's life.
