Jasmine's Family Note:
Hi my name is Jasmine and I am a stay at home mom to 4 kids. Their ages are 14 years, 5 years, 2 years and 6 months,

My husband has been the only one bringing in any income since the last 6 years. So in November of 2019 I started my own handmade business making essential oil diffuser bracelets. I have an online store (but it has 0 presence) and did events. All of the income I was bringing in was strictly from doing these events locally. Since the Covid-19 pandemic I have not been able to run my business because I haven't been able to do any events. My last event that I did was a local event in february and it was truly the worst outcome. Also before the pandemic I had a job interview with a local bakery and got hired.. but since it was literally 1 week before the pandemic I wasn't able to start and wont be actually brought onto the team until they are able to open their doors again. My husband hasn't been able to work at either one of his two jobs. He was set to a 0 hour work week with his one job since the pandemic and his other job he is not working at either because hes not needed since all of this craziness have happened. He has tried to apply for unemployment and the state website isn't working for us as well as the phone number to call, but that is an ongoing issue for a lot of others in our state as well.

We have zero savings because well life and before all this pandemic stuff we had some unexpected bills and other things. We are a family of 6 who was struggling to scrape by before to now we don't know how were going to survive this.We can't pay our credit card bills, car payment, utilities, rent or any other necessities we need. Our rent is $1,700 and we would use all of the money we were given to go towards rent and any food we will need. We have reached out to resources and so far have yet to receive help. We have not gotten any of the allotted food stamp money or the money the government is supposed to be sending out to families. This is a very stressful scary time and the most important thing to us is that we have a roof over our head and food in our children's bellies.

We would really truly from the bottoms of our hearts appreciate any help you can give.
