Lost Employment: Need Help With Rent

My Story:

I am a self-employed Classical Guitar instructor, and I have studio space at a local music store. In March, due to Covid-19, the studios were closed. In an effort to keep some income flowing, I began teaching online classes. I have only half of the students that I usually teach and am no longer able to pay my rent and utilities.

Due to the three week interval of not teaching while setting up online classes, my income has been reduced to an amount that does not allow me to pay for all the expenses that I experience in a month. Up until now, I have stayed afloat, but I am looking for help with my one month of rent.

Receiving funding will give me breathing room financially, and it will allow me to pay the monthly bills I face. Personally, not being able to pay rent is a blow to my self-esteem. I like to think I can take care of myself, but the circumstances of what is considered normal at this time have taken their toll on my feelings of independence. Receiving this funding, while difficult for me to ask for, will help me gain the ability to keep up with my expenses. Thank you all for your consideration.
