I am in desperate need of assistance in paying for back rent owed to my landlord. Due to the Vivid 19 Pandemic my paramour that works part time as a Home Health Aide lost 3 of her clients, so therefore reduced the amount of hours she works per week and she gets paid biweekly. I receive SSD benefits and yes my paramour is still working and she is also receiving unemployment benefits, but our rent is $6%0.00 per month and nothing is included meaning we pay for all utilities also. So even with my SSD benefits and my paramour working and receiving unemployment benefits we're still really struggling and the last rental payment that we were able to make was in March 2020. We are really trying to atleast pay our landlord something every month towards the rent but it just never seems to work out. We haven't received any kind of eviction notice as of yet but I know it's coming very soon. My paramour and I also have a 7 year old son together that resides with us. If there is anyway you can assist me with this matter I would very sincerely appreciate it. I'm so afraid that we will be evicted from our home and that we will have no where to go with our son. Thank you, Keith Shoup

My mother and I are struggling to get by. We are both in a small room in a very dirty, unsanitary, infested place. My mom has disability but she's not making what they said she would be making. It's supposed to be $800.00 or more. I also wonder how I go about renewing my SNAP and also having cash on my access card.
