Hello I’m wondering if I could get rent assistance with being unemployed. I am now 3 months behind rent soon to be 4 months due to COVID-19 and I’ve have been trying to find employment, the unemployment insurance agency has not been much help at all so I need some serious help other wise I might end up homeless, until I can figure out something else to help myself. If You guys cannot assist me that’s okay I’ll just trying and figure out something else.
