Fighting Eviction

I was a live-in caregiver for an elderly friend who had colon cancer as well as numerous other health issues. Chemo had weakened her body and she was suffering tremendously. When her BP dropped and we called 911, she was admitted to the hospital and placed in ICU but appeared to be doing fine. Her BP increased and the nurses were optimistic. She was in good spirits when I went to visit her at noon. At 5pm she had a heart attack and I was told she wouldn't make it through the night. At 3am she passed away. I had to seek employment to be able to pay rent and utilities.

I was recently hospitalized and my employer terminated me while I was in the hospital. I live in an "Employment At Will" state, which means any employer can terminate you at any time, without any reason.

Now I have rent to pay, electric bill to pay, and no income. I have applied for emergency assistance but have not received anything. I am actively seeking employment as I do not want to lose my apartment.  I am trying to get assistance from local agencies, but my name isn't on the lease, hers is. I attempted to change the lease to my name but, because the rent is overdue, they won't make any changes UNTIL I am current.

Any amount received will be sent to my landlord to show them that I am trying to pay the rent, and hopefully avoid going to court to be evicted.   The papers have already been filed, I am just waiting for a letter from the court with a date to appear.

If anyone in the financial position could loan me the funds, I would gladly sign a contract to repay, via payments, as soon as I am gainfully employed. If you aren't comfortable sending funds but would be ok with sending them directly to the property manager, I will gladly provide you with that information!

Thank you and God Bless.
