Losing everything/ A call for help

This is a very hard thing to do and it possibly may be the hardest thing ever. Anyone that knows me knows that I give of my love freely in my life. I never ask for help. So here I am asking. A recent event with my husband caused me to admit him in a mental health facility. No one knows that he suffers from debilitating depression. He is bipolar and has suffered on and off over the course of our marriage. He was suicidal,  causing me to have him admitted. He was in a program that was structured. It has helped tremendously! ! He is on his way to better mental health. He wanted this. He asked me for help. I am beyond proud that he reached out. He is my everything,  as you all know. During the course of his treatment,  he lost his job. Right now we are struggling financially. We are on the verge of losing our home. Bills are piling. Rent is due. We have worked very hard to get to where we are. Chris is thriving. But we are spiraling into debt. We need help. Until we can get back on our feet,  we ask you for your help. We promise to pay it forward. Our faith is strong. My heart is very near and dear to mental illness. Both Chris and I thank you in advance for anything you can contribute.
