I Lost a Week of Work Due to Heart Issues & My Husband Was Laid Off. We're Behind on Rent!
I am a married mother of one 5-year-old daughter who is a fish out of water! She is very outgoing and loves swimming. We love doing outdoorsy things together as a family. I work full-time in an auto shop.
My daughter was just diagnosed with ADHD and placed on a modified school schedule, so she is only in school 3 hours a day. Things have been difficult since then because my husband was put out of work about a month ago. I just returned to work after missing a week due to flare ups of my heart issues. Thankfully, I am healthy, but we're in a tough spot now that I have lost wages. We have only just caught up from a tough time we had last year when we all had COVID, so we don't want another year of playing catch up. I have started working a second part-time job in retail to help us out, but we fell behind on our rent before I got a paycheck.
We are asking for help with our rent which is a month late; we have already exhausted every resource available in our community. None of them can help until next year, and we are on track to be evicted for the holidays. My husband is trying to find a part-time job, but it's hard to find work that accommodates our daughter's school schedule. This will keep us from being homeless with nowhere to go, so we can focus on our health and family. This would really help us through this tough time; thank you so much.
