Every Day I Search for a New Job, I Get Further Behind on My Internet Bill & I Need Help Please!

My Story:

I'm a Christian woman, and I live in the Bronx. I'm strong in my faith, and despite these trying and difficult times, I have faith that the Lord will see me through them. I have recently lost my job, and I'm in the process of searching for a new one while also trying to get my unemployment claim processed. It's been a little over a month, and I haven't gotten any word on when that claim could be processed, and I'm still searching for work.

Prior to the pandemic, I was working at a non-profit that handles child welfare programs, primarily ones related to foster care. I loved my job, and I loved that I was able to do something to help my community. However, they had to make cutbacks due to the pandemic, and I was unable to hold onto my job. I've struggled to pay my bills sense then, and while I've been able to keep up with my rent and utilities, I haven't been able to keep up with my phone or internet bills, both of which are crucial to my ability to find work again. So, I'm asking for help with those bills so that I can continue to search for work and stay in touch with the outside world.

Every day I wait to hear back about my unemployment claim or a new position is a day that I get further behind on these two bills, and I can't continue to wait around any longer. That's why I've decided to reach out for help and to be proactive about my situation. I would be incredibly grateful for this assistance, and once I get back to work, I want to pay this forward to someone else who's in a similar position to me right now.
