I'm in need of assistance. I am widowed and now unemployed due to covid-19. My landlord has been patient and has done what he could to lighten the burden but he can no longer do that. I am significantly behind in my rent and I am currently without water with shut off for electric. I have absolutely no family left. I have nowhere to turn.
