Gotta Get My Masters Degree

Last year I took the risk of a lifetime and moved to Portland to pursue a Masters Degree in Public Administration. You all watched and cheered me on as I started what has been the scariest and the most challenging part of my journey. The first year was a success, albeit certain struggles but I mainted a good GPA and even got to write a bill for this  past legisaltive session, a call to support communities of poverty. I got to advocate for all marginilized voices at the State Capital.   But now I am at crossroads. My son moved home and I have not been able to find a job after my internship finished. I have been financing both school and housing through student loans but it is not enough to cover it all. My current balance is $1,600 (combination of housing and tuition) and if not paid by December 6th, I will more than likely loose my housing and be forced to take semester off. I have waited so long to ask for help because I was sure the next job was right around the corner. But I have run out of time and corners. Please help, if you can. Good wishes help too.
