Unemployed! Need help!

Hi there. I never thought I would be here on GoFundMe asking for help but here I am. About a year ago when I turned 18, I made the decision to try and live life on my own and start living and paying bills on my own. I come from a privileged family and was very blessed growing up, but my parents told after I decided to be an adult that I was on my own and that they would not help. I worked a part time job at the time and with all my expenses barely got by. I decided to look for full time work to make more money and ended up with a solid job for about 3 months but was laid off right before the craze started with the coronavirus pandemic. Since then I have been sleeping in my car, house hopping between my friends, and barely getting by. Since then, I have applied for unemployment, but have not been approved. I have applied to over 50 full time jobs within the $12-13 pay range both online, over the phone, and in person, in order to try and pay my bills, but have been denied for all of them. My stimulus check was able to save me, but only hold me off for so long. I am also behind on my insurance, cellphone bill, gym membership (where I shower) and the rest of my bills by almost a month now, and have some unpaid loans friends have been so kind to give me. I know this might be a long shot but it is so worth it to me, and a last resort. I have two friends of mine who have a spare room in an apartment in the city where I live. I have come to an agreement with them that if I can pay $500 a month in rent, they would let me stay with all the amenities they have/can provide no questions asked. If I could get this fulfilled and help get back on my feet this would actually change my life and I can flourish. Thank you for taking the time to read. Stay safe. If there are any questions feel free to message me on instagram @jjosephvazquez I can also provide proof of my bills as well.
