I need assistance with rental assistance. We live at the arbor apt. And due to the pandemic we my husband and I both lost our jobs and literally have no income at this point. We have submitted unemployment benifits claims. However I have not heard back from them ever since March2020 when unemployment was denied 10 days before the pandemic hit. And just 10 days after I started my new job we all were furloed due to corona virus. We return back in June. However they reduced our hours and so I had gotten very sick in June 2020 but sent home and without a job. My husband lost his job due to a severe car accident. He was struck by a drunk driver. And has never fully recovered. We are desperately in need of assistance with rental assistance. Please contact me about a interview for the application for assistance. Thank you Rolinda Vasquez

This program is a joke. No one EVER answers. It always says funds have been reached. Or busy tone. People are losing their homes and keep being assigned to MesaCAN and it’s a dead end. No one reaches out, it’s impossible to reach someone directly, and the 30 min to reach out for rent and utility assistance is so far below the bare minimum it’s sickening. People need to start reaching out to our congressman and demand help. There are millions out of work, millions with no income and no unemployment. Can hardly put gas in the car, let alone SRP and rent. I’m very disgusted with MesaCAN for making no real effort to try to help the community.
