A missed rent payment means we could lose our home on June 11th if it is not paid to our housing commission.

My mother and I have been living in our home, and in our community for nearly 20 years, since I was only 3 years old! I have grown up here, and gone to school here my entire life. Currently I will be entering my fourth year of study towards receiving my BA with Honors in Psychology.
Recently we have had some hard times, and were nearly evicted this past winter for being behind on our rent. My mom has won a court case allowing us to remain in our home that we love so dearly, and we have been struggling to make our regular rent payments along with the backpay from previously. We managed to pay back the previous amounts, and through the stress and bills, a payment was missed. Although my mom apologized and ensured housing that it would be paid ASAP, an order was put through for another court date and a tenant's board hearing unless the total owed is paid in full by June 11th.
Growing up in public housing, I have always appreciated everything I have immensely, because I had to earn everything myself. I am not the type to look for handouts, however my mother is my best friend, and the strongest woman I know, so I have to help her keep our home.
