Save My Livelihood

Dear facebook friends and family, now i know i don't normally put my personal business on social media but i am truly desperate, and feel this is my only solution at this time. I've tried to do it on my own and I have failed and i am reaching out for help, i have been defeated and i know i can't do it on my own and i need help. So here's my story. I am a full time Uberdriver and ever since the CoVid 19 has started i was unable to work and I lost my income which caused me to fall behind on all our bills. Now that i am able to Uber again i have been slowly playing catch up on everything i had falling behind on. Well the car payment is one of those bills, i was able to make a $300 payment this friday the 18th and was told this payment had placed my repo on hold and i had 2 weeks to pay an additional $290 to get back in good standing. Well they LIED because i woke up this morning and my car was GONE they came and took it after telling me i had 2 weeks to finish paying it off, now i can only get my car back by paying the entire late amount of $680 and the $420 Repo fee which has brought my balance up to $1,100 and the tow company will only hold my car for 7 days and they charge by the day everyday it's in there a seperate fee, so who knows how much more i will need by the time i can raise enough money. This amount would be possible if i had the car to work, but without it, it is honestly impossible for me to pay now because i don't have the car anymore and my car is how i work. I have no income coming in at all without the vehicle, If there is any way I could get some help coming up with this thousand dollars I will be able to continue to work and continue to get back on my feet but without the car I am now terrified I will now lose everything not just the car but now also our home which we can not afford to stay in now without the vehicle. I would have never let this happen i trusted the fact that i had an additional 2 weeks to come up with the rest of the money, I've been struggling for months homeless and jobless and now that i start to work again and was able to make my payments they should work with me and this shouldn't have happened to me especially with Covid right now everyones struggling.  Now this error has caused such a spiral effect and much more losses in my life other than losing my car and my source of income but I fear I will now become homeless once again after just finally getting back on my feet. I don't deserve this and I feel so defeated with now no options left. Any donations will be greatly appreciated, please help me and my furbabies stay in our home and get my car back so i can get back to work.
