Rent/Eviction Prevention

My sons (ages 2 and 11) and I are asking for your help. Some of you may know I lost my job September of last year after having a mold issue in my home which made my asthmatic son ill and it has been anything but easy trying to keep things together. From rent, food, utilies, car note/insurance, daycare, medical expenses and just our daily needs.   Taking time off to care for him when he was ill and following up with medical appointments and cost resulted in me being let go and it has been difficult trying to keep things together ever since.

 I have fallen behind on my living expenses just trying to make ends meet and I am soon facing eviction. I've  gone to several charities for assistance and many have already exhausted resource funds.
I humbly ask that you help my family out. While I know that this too shall pass, I need this to pass without losing everything I've worked so hard to gain as a mother and a single parent over the past years. It's hard for me to ever ask, especially because I'm an example of making it no matter the circumstance. I have always pushed through, and I'm hoping with some help from friends even stragers if it touches your heart to do so, that we can get through and come out on top. After many unsuccessful attempts to gain other types of employment, I recently passed the police entrance exam and hope to start the academy in December. While this is an accomplishment for me, I still face losing my home

I thank you on behalf of me and my boys for anything that you're able to assist me with.
