I am a vet and due to the corona virus I was let go at my job. Last week my car was stolen and totaled. I applied for unemployment and was denied. I applied for PUA and have not heard anything. I am now getting evicted in May 20. I have no family or friends here. I am a veteran and I’m desperate for help. I also have a 4 year old daughter who I will not be allowed to see if I get evicted. I also will not be blacklisted from getting another apartment with an eviction on my credit. Please help me. I’m at my wits ends.
