Single mom needing support to secure housing

2020 Was the worst year that could ever have been. Moving back to Victoria was harder then I could’ve imagined. For the first few months we moved from place to place staying with friends and I finally secured a house unfortunately paying $1850 a month as a single parent. I got a good job and everything seemed like it would be all right. Then in February I was in an accident and had $7500 worth of damage to the car. Then I was off work for reasons relating to the death of my boys father who was murdered and Victoria in 2018. I was off for court appearances victim impact statements and various other court dates. Then in May my hand became numb and I was set up with a surgeon but due to Covid everything was slowed down. I was off work and then tried to go back but the pain was too much. I was still receiving 75% of my income but it wasn’t enough. Bills became past you and begin piling up. Every month I was scared I would be evicted. I had surgery scheduled for October but then we were sick so it was moved to December leaving me on medical leave even longer and putting me further in the hole. And then just before my surgery in December I got the news that my dad passed in a house fire while test positive for COVID on Cortes island. I’ve spent months in tears every day wondering where our next meal is going to come from or if we’re going to have a roof over her head or if I’ll be able to afford our medicine that month. I am so far in debt I just can’t continue. I cry myself to sleep most nights and I have isolated myself from everyone that I know due to the depression. All I want is to have one month where we’re not struggling. I’ve had my car repossessed I have maxed out my credit cards and now my tenant agreement is up and due to my late payment of rent and they help me sign a mutual into tenancy and now we have to find a place for February 1st. I’ve missed pay periods due to doctors forms being late and you have large bills outstanding for these forms. There is no way on my own I can come up with a damage deposit for my new place let alone get my last months rent covered here which I’m still behind on. If you can’t help please just share. All I need is a little boost in the right direction and hopefully things will be OK. I’ve seen go fund me‘s for the most ridiculous things. I don’t do anything for myself everything I do is for my boys and this is the same. I’m not ashamed to put myself out there to support my children. They’ve been through a lot this year as well and I know they worry about me when they see me cry and I just want them to know everything will be ok. Thank you for reading and I hope you all have a safe 2021
