This issue I guess starts back at the end of 2019. My boyfriend, of 14 years, developed a (still undiagnosed) stomach issue that prevented him from holding a regular job. I had just started a new job and was moving up quickly from assistant manager to acting general manager of a local chain restaurant. Shortly after making that move, I unfortunately had an auto accident that ended in totaling our car, which had the bare minimum coverage and would only cover the value of the car but would not help us get a new one. Also introduce COVID. I was fortunate that I could keep my job through the pandemic, but due to loss of business I was doing the job as a GM on an AM’s salary, and it was not easy to maintain our rent, utilities, and other bills along with his medication on the single income. Through the pandemic, we had rental protection and I made payments as best I could. However, in August of 2020 we were evicted from our apartment as there was a lapse in the statewide rental protection. We, along with about 40 other families, lost our home that day. We then found ourselves in an extended stay hotel, trying to find housing during a pandemic with a new eviction on our record. I left that job as I was told I wasn’t getting a raise anytime soon and I job hopped a bit until I found myself in another restaurant as an assistant manager and I remained in that job since. I also picked up a second job as a breakfast attendant at a sister hotel to the one we stayed at. Eventually I earned a big enough bonus at work to put a down payment on a new car this past January. My boyfriend started gig driving during his good moments to help get food and the small bills paid off. I maintained “rent” and car payments. Occasionally my paycheck wouldn’t make it and a friend would help, whom I’d pay back the very next paycheck. I eventually got promoted to GM again, with the raise this time and I had to give up my second job. Because I gave up the second job, the hotel I was staying at no longer wanted us there and we were asked to leave. We found another location, but it is more expensive, and my new income is lower than my previous two put together. I began to fall behind. I opted to cover our phones, room, meds and food. This then leads us to the fact that our car was repossessed last week. We have reached out to family, friends, crowd funding and my job seeing if there were options out there. Our credit to income ratio with our monthly expenses does not allow for a loan. We need $3,000 as you can see in the image I have included.
