Temporary set back

Hi everyone, just wanted to start off by saying, I’ve never been in this type of situation before, and I’m at a loss, and that’s why I need help! I’ve served my community as a Law Enforcement Officer for over 22 years, and a year ago this week, I fell at work, and developed a very serious work injury. I have been off of work, with a total disability and on Workmen’s Comp since my accident. As of last week, W.C. Decided to stop all of my benefits, including my income. They sent me to their W.C. Doctor, and after I saw him, they stopped EVERYTHING. I am still totally disabled, per my treating surgeon, and I applied for SSD, however my application is still being reviewed. However, at this moment, I have no income, and my rent still needs to be paid, or I will be facing eviction soon, and bills, and car payments and insurance need to be made, for me and my 10 year old, since I am a single parent. I can not get into court, due to Covid, until possibly January to fight Workmen’s Comp. this is a temporary set back for me and my family, and I am just seeking help so I do not have to find housing and move right now or lose my vehicle with winter coming, when I know, this is only a temporary issue for my family and I. There is light at the end of the tunnel, but not right now. Any kind of help would be appreciated at this time, I’m trying everything possible for my family and I to get through this situation I am facing. Thank you
