Help my daughter and I from eviction

Hello, my name is Hillary (Ilariya, nickname) and a friend of mine told me about this site and that it could help me from possible eviction. I'm a single mother and an Emergency Medical Technician, Lifeguard and Aquatics Instructor. I lost my EMT certification when I came down with bad case of Pancreatitis and was unable to get my con-ed credits and refresher course information into the Office of Emergency Medical Services in Boston on time. I had to re-take my state practical in August, 2012 and written exam in April, 2013. The recertification process took MUCH longer than expected due to major delays with OEMS. Every two weeks I was in contact with OEMS to see if I was authorized to take my state written but they had no director and kept telling me the card that would authorize me was on it's way, it took nine months of back and forth phone calls until finally I was re-certified in April, 2013. I've been working part-time since August, 2012 but my hours were cut back in February, I'll be starting a full-time position for the summer June 15th but that doesn't help me right now in regard to being able to pay rent for June. My landlord has been very patient but we ended up in court, luckily we worked things out and he didn't evict us. However if I can't come up with rent for June we'll be out on the street. I've had a lot of difficulty finding work as an EMT since being re-certified in April. I'm applying to every company I know of that's hiring but it's not going the way I need it too but I won't give up because helping others in need is simply who I am and I can't imagine not being able to do that. I may be offered a full-time job doing something different come September which I would of course accept but my concern, major concern is that I won't be able to pay rent for June. I'm requesting $2000.00 because I have a few bills that got quite large and I need to pay them off such as my electric bill, gas bill and my daughters preschool. My daughter and I have had help from some wonderful people and I'm eternally grateful to them but it hasn't covered all I need nor did I expect it too. I just want to be able get back on my feet, work as an EMT, Lifeguard and Aquatics Instructor and anything else I can find. I feel life I'm living in quicksand and I'm so scared of losing my apartment, my electricity and as a result ending up in homeless shelter. I really hope I don't come across as a victim because I don't live my life that way I'm just in a situation where I need some help so I can really build and be able to sustain a life for my five year old daughter and I. I appreciate you taking the time to read this and thank you whether you donate to my situation or even make the choice not to, I'm simply grateful that you took the time to read my story.
Many blessings,
Hillary Scheffreen
