Coronavirus: Missed Work and Needs Assistance with Rent

My Story:

I am a 30 year-old woman and I work part time at the university that I also attend, which also ensures that I have the required skills for my career. I am very active in my community because I volunteer at my local church. On top of that, I am also a musician and I enjoy playing the guitar during my down time.

However, recently, I lost my job because the university is not able to support me due to their inability to pay some workers due to the pandemic. Also, the technology that I was able to access while doing my job onsite was unavailable, creating additional cost on my own end. With my earnings I am usually able to afford my monthly basic expenses; however, I do not earn enough to have any significant savings. With the loss of my income, I am forced to wonder how I will be able to pay for basic necessities, as well as my cost of attendance. Ultimately, I need a grant to maintain my rent, thereby allowing me to continue attending school.

I believe it will afford me more stability by allowing me to stay current on rent, thereby restoring my landlord's faith in me. After school, I will be able to undertake a full-time position which will allow me to put away money more effectively. I strongly believe that if you help someone, then you help everyone. I am eternally grateful for your consideration and generosity.
