I'm Struggling to Find Steady Employment & Need Help Keeping My Car Please!

My Story:

I'm the mother of an awesome 8-year-old daughter, and I'm also engaged to a wonderful man. My daughter is exceptionally creative, and she's always jumping from one art project to another. She's very mature and loves a challenge! As for my fiance, he's trying to get his own business off the ground right now. I was working full-time up until the pandemic when I lost my job. Since then, I've been working part-time and temporary jobs, but I think I finally found stable income again working as a caregiver for my elderly father.

Until the pandemic, I worked in banking for almost a decade. However, when the pandemic began, I was laid off, and finding a steady income since then has been very difficult. On top of that, my health has started to deteriorate, and I'm seeking assistance through disability benefits, but I'm still waiting for a hearing. Thankfully, I've found a job as a caregiver, and I'm happy to also be able to assist my father. However, the income that I receive from that isn't enough for me to be able to handle all of our bills. That's especially true now because I was recently in a small accident with my vehicle that broke off one of my mirrors. I had to pay to have it replaced immediately, and now I can't afford our regular car note this month.

I'm really afraid that our only vehicle is going to be repossessed and if that happens, I'll lose my job. We would be back to square one or worse, we would start to fall behind everywhere else. So, I'm very humbly asking for help with our car payment, and me and my family would be tremendously grateful to anyone who lends us a hand up with this bill.
