I was incarcerated for 10 years. Released from prison on April 12th, 2020. Currently homeless, because I am unable to get a job because of Covid-19. I am an accountant, so I am still looking for a job. In the interim, I am seeking rent assistance: landlord requires 1st month, and security deposit. Total $1400.00. Can someone please help me, or direct me to an agency that can assist me. I am homeless, no cloths, no bus pass. I need help.
