I need help paying my rent this month...

I'm about to be evicted, I lost my unemployment but started a new job a week ago, my first check will probably be small, and when I do get a decent check my next month will be due, ill never be able to catch up at this rate, I don't make enough. I already got assistance from Salvation Army in the past 12 months, where else can I go? I live in Stark county Ohio. Thank you so much for anyone who can give advice here, I'd really like to get help this one last time so I can pay my bills on time next month.
