After Giving Birth, I've Been on Leave from My Job & Need Help Keeping Our Home Please!

My Story:

I am a mother of two boys, a 7-year-old and a 2-month-old. My oldest plays soccer and does karate. He's a very active and talented child, and I love spending time with him. We both love painting and enjoying outdoor activities. Unfortunately, Dad doesn't live with us at this time but does his best to try to help out when he can. I work from home full-time, but I recently had to take a leave of absence after giving birth to my 2-month-old.

When I'm working full-time, I make just enough to get by, but we still struggle with me being the only one in the household earning an income. Like I said, we do receive some assistance from my children's father, but it's not much. Additionally, we do have food stamps, and that helps cut down on grocery bills. However, I've been out of work for almost two months now, and I haven't had any pay from my employer during that time. Furthermore, I haven't been able to get unemployment either, and as a result, I haven't had any way to keep up with our rent. We're two months behind, and if I can't get caught up on our rent soon, then we'll lose our home.

With a newborn and a young child at home, it would be devastating to not have a roof over our heads. A homeless shelter is no place for two young children, so I don't know where we'll go if we lose our home. On top of that, I'm worried that I could lose my job if we lose our home, and that would put us into a never-ending cycle of poverty. However, with all of that said, we can still make it through this if we're able to catch up on our rent. I'm hoping to return to work in the next week or two, and when I do, I'll be able to cover our expenses from there. In the meantime, my children and I would be deeply grateful for this truly life-saving act of generosity.
