My Autistic Son Was Hospitalized for 10 Days. Now We Could Be Evicted! Please Help!

My Story:

I am a single Mom to my son, Nicolas. He is 16 and a sophomore in high school. My son is autistic and although he is high functioning and very smart, it is a hard road to parent him alone. It's way different than my other boys. I work full time at Taco Bell, and I have been there for almost 2 years. Prior to that, I worked for H & R Block for 36 years. I left because I could make more money at my current job. I have 4 other boys who are grown up, and I have 2 grandchildren.

I am seeking help with my rent. I haven't been able to save because the money comes and goes right back out. I had a car that was repossessed, and although I finally bought a car from a coworker, it broke down right away. I had a lot of repairs that I had to pay for. My job is 14 miles each way, so I had to ensure I had transportation to get to work. Nicolas also was hospitalized for 10 days because he attempted to hurt himself. When he was released, I took some days off to be home with him to make sure he was ok and safe. He is doing great now, but both things took a toll on my income. This has been very stressful and scary to see my son in the hospital like that and also worry about eviction.

I am asking for assistance with my rent; If I can't come up with this money, I will be evicted. My landlord has been very patient, but I know his hands are tied. I am scared and worried about where we will go. My parents are both deceased, and my brother lives in Alabama. I need to be able to keep my son safe with me in a place that is comfortable and familiar to him.

This one-time assistance will get me back on track financially and personally, it will relieve a lot of worry and stress. I don't feel like I can relax at all right now. It's very unsettling that this happened. I would be so thankful for the help.
