I'd Just Overcome Homelessness When I Was Unjustly Fired. I'm Back to Work but Need URGENT Rent Help

My Story:

I am a single mother of a thirteen-year-old teenage boy. My son is extremely funny and has recently moved in with me after his great-grandmother passed on. He loves playing with our dog Rambo, who is as old as my son but still has playful energy like a young pup. We call Rambo his fur sibling and my fur son. I recently got hired at Lincare full-time, and I also have a part-time job at Amazon as well.

I recently moved from Samaritan Inn, a homeless shelter that assists individuals and families to become self-sufficient. I had two months of rent saved up. After signing my lease and being super I excited I then lost my job to circumstances that were completely out of my control. I was working at a call center, and I was let go of for what they termed 'call avoidance,' which is where a customer is left on hold for too long and hangs up. Clearly, that kind of thing happens all the time due to long wait times and high call volumes. On this occasion, I was having connectivity issues, and I advised my supervisor of that so that I could be put into the proper queue while I restarted my system. Long story short, they claimed I was call avoiding, and they promptly terminated me. Before that issue, I worked there for seven years, so as you can imagine, it was pretty shocking to be let go of so abruptly. I was saddened, but I persevered and found work again. Still, due to the gap in employment I had, I fell behind on my rent, and I'm worried that I'm going to find myself and my son homeless again without assistance.

I'm terrified of losing my home and my son again, so I would be deeply grateful for this assistance. With this help, I'll be able to continue raising my 13-year-old boy and continue being a proud momma. He is an A and B student, and I am extremely proud of him. I just want to be able to keep our home and continue to provide for my son, Isaiah.
