My name is Candice Hance and I have two daughters Alexia and Mckenna and I also am taking care of another child who's parents are not making good choices, I have been in that situation so I don't judge and I have been clean almost 5 years and I'm hopeful that it will happen for them also. When Covid 19 hit, I lost my job where I was already struggling to make ends meet and I could barely provide enough food for my family. The next 3 months were terrifying, every night I get in bed with my girls watching them sleeping and innocent and I just cry and worry how to get through the next day. I knew that once the eviction moratorium was lifted it was going to be really bad for some people and we were one of them. Now CDC has put an eviction ban till the end of the year which was such a great relief but soon that came to an end when the Sheriff posted a 24hr writ of possession. I just dropped to my knees because here I am thinking that I'm going to have some time either to pay the back and current rent that I owed or pack up and leave but I was not prepared for eviction and I had to leave all of my belongings that I had just started getting back after a house fire I had a couple weeks before that. My heart is breaking for my babies because the one person who is suppose to care and provide for them is letting them down. I had an opportunity to write to the judge and explain why I felt I should be able to stay and he denied it. I have lots of medical issues and could die if I was to catch this virus. I called every number I could find to try and get us in somewhere, shelters are not taking in anyone new right now and the one place I found that is open to the public was full. I applied for every kind of assistance that the government just received money for more assistance and was told that the funding was gone. Even churchs are not able to help. So, I just took the$500 I had and got us only one week at a hotel which definitely was a blow. I need to get my daughters into a place to live quickly, they are worrying when they shouldn't have to, I am not greedy by no means and anywhere we can get would be a blessing. I will need to put down money for deposits such as electric and water and depending on where I go security and rent money is going to need to be put down first. I know that there are so many others going through this battle also and its really sad but I would ask that you consider helping in any way and I understand if you can't but I have to keep trying everything I can to find someone or something who is willing and able to help out a single mom with no family and it would be appreciated more than words can describe. Thanks in advance for anything you may be able to do and I promise to pay it forward one day.
