Our Landlord Increased Our Rent & Now We Have to Leave! Help Us Cover Our Utilities So We Can Move!

My Story:

I'm in my late 50s, and I live with my best friend who's also in his late 50s. My friend receives disability, but he works part-time at a local grocery store as well. As for myself, I just got back to working after losing my job early in 2020 due to the pandemic. I have a heart condition that kept me out of work during the pandemic, but now that things have calmed down, I've been able to get back to work. I work in the travel industry and my employer is just starting to get back on its feet.

For the last three years, we've just barely managed to scrape by. With only one of us having any income at all after the unemployment benefits ended, it was difficult to keep up with all of our bills. Still, we somehow managed to stay afloat, and now that we're both working again, we should be able to keep up with everything. At least that's what we thought until recently when our landlord decided to increase our rent. When it came time to pay the next month, we were a little bit short on what we owed, but we managed to come up with it a few weeks later. Instead of accepting it, he served us with a notice that the was ending our tenancy. Now, we have to move on short-notice, and to be honest, we can't afford to while covering all of our other bills. So, I'm humbly seeking assistance with our electric bill and our water bill so that it's easier for us to afford to move on short notice.

This is a tough position to be in because we could very easily end up homeless with nowhere to go. It's scary to think about, but I know that if we have those two bills taken care of, then we can get moved into a new home. We would both be very relived and grateful for this assistance, and when we're in a better position financially, we'll do our best to repay the generosity we're shown. Thank you to everyone who helps us with our water and electric bill.
