I Was Working with a Temp Agency When My Trainer Got COVID. I Lost My Job & Need Rent Help Please!
After divorcing my ex-husband in 2013, I'm single and living on my own. Since then, I've had to manage everything on my own, and I was managing to do that until the pandemic. I was laid off from my job at the start of COVID, and I've been in and out of employment since then. I'm a hard worker, but unfortunately, I haven't had a consistent job to work hard at since the pandemic began.
The most recent hurdle I've faced with finding consistent work has been due to some turnover in staff at the temp agency I've been working with. Originally, I was hired to work at the temp agency, and I began my training. A few weeks later, the trainer I was working under became severely ill with COVID and had to be hospitalized. They didn't have a substitute trainer who could step in, so several of my fellow coworkers decided to resign and find other employment. Without staff or employees, the temp agency decided to close the training program for the time being, and they told me they would give me a call when a new one was going to open. I had been working through this temp agency at the time, so when my training ended, I was out of a job and a paycheck. It's been weeks, and I still have received a call about resuming my employment or training. Now, I've fallen behind on my rent because I don't have any income, and I desperately need assistance with catching up before I'm evicted.
I've been homeless before, and it took everything I had to pull myself out of that situation. I'm not sure if I have it in me to do that again. However, I do know that with this help, I'll be able to keep my home and keep pushing ahead until I can find consistent work. I have two job interviews with new employers coming up this week, and I'm confident that one of those will work out. In the meantime, I would be truly grateful for this generous assistance with my rent, and I promise to pay it forward to someone else facing homelessness as soon as I can.
