People in our community who are struggling are often individuals who work low wage jobs that keep their income level above the poverty line, so they cannot qualify for government assistance, however, they are barely able to support their family. There’s a good chance you have a friend, acquaintance or neighbor that might be struggling and not even know it. They are hard-working individuals who don’t ask for help, sometimes because they don’t even realize that they need it. Families like the ones described above are often those who have been laid off, experienced wage cuts or who are still working but unable to do so remotely since the outbreak. To help these families and individuals, we have provided resources below to help them apply for unemployment and get the help they need.
