Robin from Chicago, IL

An injury put me out of work. 1 month's rent will get me back on my feet as I recover

Because I cannot do the work that I love, paying rent has been a challenge. This will help me regain my stability and health.


I am a licensed massage therapist with 18 years at my job. I was injured recently by an uninsured pick-up truck while I was crossing the street. Because of this, I suffered nerve damage and bone bruising on my hands and wrists that prevent me from working.

My goals are to return to my job as soon as possible and to remain in my rental home of 12 years.

I need $700 for back rent. Because I cannot do the work that I love, paying rent has been a challenge.

Meeting this need will help me because I want to stay in my home. I cannot afford to move nor do I want to so paying this back rent is imperative to my stability.
