Help W/Rent to keep us off the street

Thanks to a number of factors, we're now behind on bills last month and this month.  And this is a dangerous time to be in this situation: after a near eviction scare, we managed to come to terms with the landlord to keep our home but because the income both my significant other and I bring in does not come on the schedule of the landlords, which will put us both in the position once again of having to fight being evicted.


My significant other and I are both employed but the money doesn't seem to come on time.  I freelance edit for extra income, but payment on those gigs doesn't come on a regular schedule.  My S.O. has a stable job, but since her paycheck never coincides with when our rent's due, it's putting us in this precarious position.


I am legally blind and have a bad heart, the extra stress really isn't helpful on either of us, nor is a snafu with my SSI.


What I'm asking for is simply what's owed to the landlord plus one month's expenses to get us ahead on our few bills.  Once we're on our feet, we want to pay your generosity forward, by helping others in tight spots just like we're hoping you'll help us. So whatever amount you give us above our needs, that's what we're going to give to others once we can.
