I'm a Petsitter & Had 3 Different Cars Break Down in the Past Year. My Son & I Will Be Homeless!

My Story:

Hi! It is just my son and I, but our personalities are so big we don't need anyone else! My son is 8 and very smart. He loves animals and science, and although we do not have any pets of our own, I work as a pet sitter. It is a win-win for both of us. Ever since COVID hit, I have done whatever I can to keep a steady stream of income for my son and I.

Last July, I got a car, so I could travel to my clients' houses and maximize the income I was bringing in. The car broke down with a blown gasket two months later, and crazily enough, it was cheaper to just get a different vehicle. The next car I got was totaled after a deer ran into it when I was taking my son to school. It was almost unbelievable, but eventually, I made the difficult decision to get another vehicle. Two weeks ago, its tire blew out. I have paid out-of-pocket for each car and all their issues, and it has cost a fortune. I have not had enough money for food some days, and it has been one of the most mentally and financially draining times of my life. I need to have a reliable way to travel to my clients' homes, or I will be out of a job.

I am asking for help with our rent this month, which is already late. The eviction will be filed in a few days, and I am so scared. I have never been in this situation before and honestly, I never thought I would be. After going through so much, we desperately need a break. If I could get this help, it would really improve our mental state, health, and safety. We will not face homelessness and can remain in the place we call home. Thank you so much for taking the time to read about my story and give if you can.
