Help keep a roof over my kids head


hey hello there. My story is not unique. I am no different from ten of millions of other Americans who have lost everything this year, but I still hope whoever finds this and has the means to give anything towards it, will find some joy in helping my family. 

my fiancé and I both lost everything during Covid. Our work stopped, we have looked and looked for another job. We have applied for unemployment, and again likeso many others, were unable to get our requests through the overloaded system. 

so far I have accepted three job offers since Covid hit, only for those new jobs to disappear just like the previous one. My fiancé is still searching a flooded job market, and I was supposed to start waitressing next week just to get something coming in, only for Colorado to close restraints again. Really, we are just trying to buy sometime, hopefully this shut down won’t last as long as the last and this job will still be there when it’s over. 

we have a 1 year old daughter, who is precious and perfect and deserves the world, but all she has gotten the last year of her life is 4 walls and two scared and stress parents. We also have a special needs dog who requires monthly medical treatments that are cumbersome as well. I am also trying to finish my psychology degree to become a mental health technician (bad timing amiright?) and all of this has become positively stressful to maintain. We just like so many others, just need a little breathing room while we continue to do everything in our power to maintain the stability of our daughters life. Thanks for reading. May we all get through this year in one piece.
