Past Due Rent

I live with two sisters who have been supporting not just themselves, but me as well. I've not worked for five years due to disability, but I was denied disability benefits. I have Psoriatic Arthritis and musculoskeletal disease. One sister is a teacher and the other works in accounting but she was laid off in March due to Covid. She's been unable to find work. I watch her apply for job after job, and she gets interviews but nothing has materialized yet.

In spite of my health issues, I am trying to find work as well. A few weeks ago I started a great job as a job instructor/trainer, but it required me to be on my feet four to five hours straight every afternoon and after a few days, I had to quit. My doctor told me I cannot work a job like that so that's why I'm looking for office work now. Like my sister, however, I'm not having a lot of luck. 

Once my sister stopped getting federal money from unemployment, we started falling behind in all our bills. The creditors we can deal with but it's the rent that has me concerned.  We got behind and we're trying to catch up, but it's so hard to get out of this hole. 

We would appreciate anything anyone can spare to help me raise the money to get back on track with our rent before we fall too far behind. 

Thank you and God bless.
