Help Rashaun Survive Unemployment

I'm starting this fundraiser for my twin sister, Rashaun. About 5 months ago, my sister was fired from her job at a university. The only explanation she ever received was that it wasn't "a good fit."

She is still unemployed, after 5 months of receiving unemployment insurance, which requires recipients to apply for at least three jobs per week in order to receive benefits. Rashaun applied for many jobs and continues to do so, she has even had several interviews, but as previously stated, she is still unemployed. She is no longer eligible to receive unemployment benefits, and this means that she has absolutely no income. After getting her university job, she got an apartment of her own and is currently unable to pay for next month's rent.

We in her family want to support her as much as we can, but I also wanted to take a chance to see what kind of community support we could get. The stress of this is something else on my sister and I started this GoFundMe just to try to do what I can in order to help relieve some of the stress on her. In addition to being unemployed, Rashaun also has some serious mental health diagnoses, and this situation only makes things critically harder.

Rashaun's monthly expenses are as follows:
Rent $600
Utilities: $150

Thankfully, she has an EBT card that she can use for food but she is not able to extend her unemployment benefits. I have raised the fundraising total to $800 in order to cover GoFundMe fees, which I don't love.


Please give, if you can.  I truly believe that Rashaun will find employment again but right now things are critical for her and I want her to at least be able to stay in her apartment. Thank you so much.
