Family of three being harassed by neighbors

Hi guys, so I held back from making this in fear of nobody believing me or caring. My mom, sister and I have been living in this apartment for 15 years now, we have never had a problem with our upstairs neighbors until the ones that recently moved in about 2 months ago. 

Our new upstairs neighbors are absolutely horrible, they keep us up until 4 am with all of their noise daily. Every single morning we are disturbed by their blaring music at 6 am in the morning and the constant stomping/bamming  on the floor constantly. We are not strangers to noise, we understand that noise is going to be made, but what they’re doing to us is absolutely uncalled for. They stomp through the apartment all day, play very loud drums really late at night, drag chairs and furniture all day and sing karaoke at the top of their lungs, and laundry at 2 am. All of this purposefully, we have never done a single thing to these people.

My sister and I are both first year college students and we are unable to get any work done because we cannot concentrate with all the noise above our heads, and my mom works from home now. Because of COVID-19, we cannot study anywhere else because of the lock-down rules in place. We have spoken to them nicely several times to try and resolve the issue, but unfortunately they do not care. We have complained to our landlord once and he has done nothing to resolve the problem. The same day I am typing this, my mom and I went upstairs to confront them and as you can guess they said it wasn’t their fault, they don’t care and that they will continue to do what they’re doing. She even went as far as to clap her hands in our faces which I take as a microaggression because there was no reason for them to be acting that way.

At this point we are lost and confused, it’s gotten to a point where we are all having mental breakdowns and panic attacks every day. The anxiety has gotten so bad that I no longer have an appetite. I am typing this at 12:30 am as the problem is occurring. We realized the only way we can get out of this situation is to move and unfortunately we have absolutely no money to be able to do that. Both my sister and I lost our jobs due to COVID-19 and my moms whole paycheck goes to paying rent here. Our mental health is deteriorating living here and we feel so alone through all of this. If you guys could share/donate that would mean the absolute world to us! Anything helps and will make a significant difference!
