I’m married with 2 daughters and this nightmare of ours started about 1 year ago. My family and I was fine living in a 2 bedroom townhouse. I worked as an Independent Contractor from home and my husband worked as an Maintenance Tech within the apartments we lived in. Well a year ago he ended up severely hurting his back and had to be out of work for quite some time and ended up having surgery. Well this caused him to lose his job and he was the bread winner.
I tried working more hours, but barely covering all the expenses. Everything came to a head overtime and we starting getting behind on rent which we owe 3,000 dollars because it seemed like I robbing Peter to pay Paul. I just couldn’t have my little girls without food, lights, or water. I had to pay the utilities which seem to pop up with some type of cut off notice. We were very dependent on our taxes this year(2019) and we ended up owing, so we have received nothing back. We never been in a situation like this and what hurt the most our innocent little girls don’t deserve nothing like this. It breaks my heart that we’re on the urge of becoming evicted.
We’ve reached out to a lot of organizations ( Salvation Army, Catholic Charities, H.E.L.P), and different churches but no one has any funding. My landlord was generous enough to give us the time to wait for our taxes but only to find out that we owe. My husband tried to get disability and was denied twice already, but we still keep trying to see what’s going to happen. He can’t never get a job because he can’t stand for a long time or sit for longs periods of time. It’s just a sad situation, it’s frustrating and we in dire need of help. Please if there’s anyone out there that can help it will be greatly appreciated. I’m begging please help before it’s too late.
