COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 has changed many things for many households.  Along with the uncertainty of how this virus may affect the health of myself or someone in my household, there may be many other questions.

  • Will I lose my job or have my work hours cut?
  • How will I pay my rent if my income is less than what I need for bills?
  • My household expenses are the same whether I am working or not, how will I afford my heat and electricity?
  • Gas prices have gone down but I still need to get to work and I have to spend what I have on food for my family.
