Father in Hardships (Covid-19)

Hi my name is Sonny i am 35 i am a father to a wonderful 2 year old girl and i am in dire need of help, About a year ago in early Jan 2019 i had an accident resulting in a broken leg requiring surgery, I was out of work for 5 months during that time i was having difficulty with my daughters mother (whom ive a bad relationship with) i was immobile unable  to see her due to my injury and after recovery i was able to resume work in June,  unfortunately my job (warehouse) required me to lift, pull, push heavy objects/loads etc which put heavy strain on my leg and caused it to not heal right my supervisors noticed my inability to complete my work and after only working 2 months i was sadly released, I was staying with my ex girlfriend and was not able to help pay bills i was asked to leave which forced me to live with my younger sister in early August  watching her 3 kids and helping doing household stuff, chores,take& pickup kids from school etc. i applied at a temporary labor agency and managed to land a call center job for $80 a day and helping my sister out with home expenses, In early October i managed to save up enough money to move in as a roommate with an old Co-worker from there i applied at several jobs nearby to no luck so i ended up doing odd temp jobs and seasonal work which paid 2 weeks after job was done. However during my injury absence i fell behind in child support which during that time my daughters mother got the courts to agree i pay $377 per check instead of the normal $250  i am paying almost 760 a month and because of that the money i make from working temp and seasonal jobs are deducted by half or all of it and now im back to square one living with my sister again and working temp jobs for pocket change i managed to actually work out a deal with my daughters mother that if i were to secure a living space and decent transportation (which i have but impounded) we can discuss and arrange shared custody so with these donations i receive from you will help me get into a income based 2 bedroom apartment that is spacious the rent is $587 and security deposit is $300 the rest of the proceeds with help provide a bed for my daughter, dresser, toys, food, clothing basic necessities for a 2 year old please help me overcome these hardships i am going through especially in the time of the Coronavirus pandemic help me create a safe haven for my baby she needs me more then anything the landlord has approved my application but i lack the funds necessary to move in but keep in mind space is limited and wont be available for long it would mean the world to me if you would find it in your heart to help a struggling father out i dont do drugs i dont drink and im not an abusive person i just want to get my life back on track be a good dad and raise her like i should ive been alienated from her for nearly a year as i explained before her mother and i arent very stable but are willing to work together to raise her i have also received an offer for my job back but wont be able to start for 2 weeks due to Covid-19 all and all 2 weeks in our new home my daughter and i can have time to catch up and have a safe place  thank you for listening and god bless each and everyone be safe out there and stay healthy
