I’m a disabled SW and licensed esthetician who has been severely affected by Covid. I was let go from my esthetician job in March due to the full closure of the industry.
I have been relying on unemployment (which ran out several months ago) and various side hustles that due to the pandemic haven’t been regularly yielding much, no matter how hard I try.
My precarious subletting situation has come to a point where I am currently fighting being illegally evicted and I simply do not have the funds to just leave.
As the industry opened back up, I was able to recently land a new minimum-wage tip-dependent job but I don’t get paid until the 11th of December. But even with my first paycheck in over 9 months, my savings have been completely depleted and it will not be enough to neither pay a security deposit or even just a full month’s rent on a room. My bank account is currently under $100 and I have no money coming in through my SW due to Covid.
This year has been incredibly difficult to my personal and professional circumstances and extremely damaging to my mental and physical health. I have started to lose hope but I’m still fighting. To improve my personal circumstances all I ask is for enough funds to help cover:
- moving costs (due to my disability I cannot handle moving on my own)
- a security deposit
- first month’s rent
- and any leftover will be used to pay some of my student loans as my credit score is extremely damaged from not being able to make payments.
