I lost my job

I lost my job a month ago for no reason. I was working for Verizon for over four years and after I asked for a raise, they let me go shortly after.  I have ever since gotten a new job but they won't pay me until a month from now. Because of that, I am going to be short for rent and my water bill. I wouldn't normally ask for help, but I have two kids and I am the sole income of the household. I don't want my kids to live in some cardboard box and I have run out of options.  I applied for unemployment but my old job is fighting it and they gave an estimate of eight weeks from now before I'll get a decision. My landlord isn't understanding and she won't help me. I will make sure to pay this back to anyone that helps, I am just worried about my kids
