My Car Broke Down & Then I Missed a Week of Work to Care for My Sick Girl. We'll Be Evicted Now!

My Story:

I am a single mother of an amazing daughter who loves reading and drawing. She is on the honor role, and I am so proud. I work full-time as a teaching assistant, and I am obtaining my bachelor's in social work.

I have been thrown into financial hardship because my vehicle broke down, and I had to pay towing fees, an Uber home, and repairs. This put a strain on my finances, but it was all manageable until my daughter caught the flu and strep throat at once. I had to miss over a week of work, and my employer does not give any sick leave. My paycheck was much less than usual, so in conjunction with these car expenses, I am at a loss for how to stay on top of every bill. Thankfully, my daughter and I are healthy. I am working. I know we can get out of this mess, but I am afraid my past due rent will just continue to increase.

I am asking for help to pay my rent, so my daughter and I do not face eviction before I get my next few paychecks. Your generous gift will bring me current and ensure we are not forced into a shelter. Thank you for anything you can give to our situation.
