Hi my name is Sofia. My fiancé’s name is Andy and our child’s name is Kathleen.
Covid started spreading and places started getting shut down. A month before that our roommate left and we were able to hold the bills until about a month later I lost my job Because the women I worked for now works from home. And I am a caretaker for kids. So then we struggled trying to make bills but because of my loss of income we lost our place. I had spilt up our pets amongst family and friends who could take them in and everything else we had to get rid of or put in storage. My fiancé parents place is a 2 bedroom apartment with a small den. Because of that we simply Could not fit. So I went to my parents who did not allow my fiancé to come. So he went to his parents place in the den. My parents told me my fiancé come not come over to visit us and I couldn’t go to him to visit. I am 26 and been on my own since I was 17. I was not going to allow them to make that decision for me so when I didn’t agree they kicked me out a week later. Andy’s parents took us in even though there was no room. So now the three of us and our last remaining pet(dog) are all in a cramped room with just our clothes and a bed. It has been months and I love my in-laws but andy’s dad is deaf so it’s always loud which makes it hard for Kathleen to sleep and they are up at all hours of the day and night which makes it hard to raise a toddler in these conditions.
Now months later Now that I have gotten back on my feet With a new job and I want a place for my family. We found a perfect place for us but need alittle help getting it. Anything can help if you can we would greatly appreciate it. My fiancé has been keeping us afloat with food and the car bill. Now that I am back to work we are able to move out. We just need help getting started so we can move as soon as possible so we all can get some sleep and not be confined to one room.
Thank you so much for anyone and everyone who can help.
