Caregiver for elderly Irish man

Hi my name is Shyrell Brady and I came to nyc from co.Monaghan in Ireland to meet members of my biological family after being raised in foster care in Ireland. Unfortunately it was hard for me to fit in with my aunts & cousins because I wasn’t used to being in a family and I felt like I didn’t belong. When the pandemic hit i found myself in a very tough situation, a mom to 5 all born here, i have no papers and i lost my job for the elderly man i cared for for years. As you know i was entitled to absolutely no American help. I do receive foodstamps of 704 and 226.50 cash assistance a month only for my children. I have reached out to every agency i can think of but nobody helps me. They say they will & then they stop replying and i feel like im bothering them. I have no family here or at home. Im doing my best to get by with charity clothes donations & pantries but it’s still wasn’t enough & the charity grandma’s love that was helping closed down. I can’t afford to pay my bills, keep the wifi on for remote school and pay for diapers and wipes and all the other necessities with 226.50 a month. I don’t know where to turn or who to ask. I just want to be able to provide for my children and work on everything I need to get my papers. I turned to an Irish group on fb for advice and those ladies tore me limb from limb. I know my story sounds unbelievable but it is my absolute truth and i feel like I have been forgotten in this pandemic. What category do i fall into? Door after door is closed on me. Im lost, I don’t know who to ask or what to do anymore. The Emerald Isle said last year they would apply for an Irish grant for me but now they just keep saying the criteria changed. Where do i & my kids fit in? What criteria do we fit? I can’t get unemployment i can’t get the stimulus for myself or my children. I qualify for nothing. Please please please can someone help send me in the right direction. I just need a hand up and im hoping that someway somehow your agency has the answers for me. Im willing to prove everything im saying is true just please help me get back on my feet. Covid has left me without options.
Ty for even reading this & God bless

Dog walker/ housekeeper

I lost all my jobs due to Covid and not being able to work. Kids were home and I used up my savings and credit card to take care of them during that time. Bills piled up and I can’t even afford to pay them or buy food for the kids and myself. I will be happy with any help I can receive. Thanks

Yo era paseador de perros

Mi trabajo era pasear perros, yo fui a llamado a trabajar en la empresa de un conocido la cual se dedicaba a al paseó de perros individualmente, cada perro tenía su horario, se sacaba uno a la vez y así se manejaba el trabajo. Cuando la pandemia empezó ya no pude seguir trabajando y como indocumentado no pude tener acceso a los pagos por desempleo que ofrecía el gobierno. Y como se podrán imaginar ya llevo varios meses sin pagar renta, y la situación cada vez es más apretada. Gracias a las ayudas para alimentos de la ciudad he tenido algo para comer si no quien sabe donde estaría ahora.

I take care of people at home

Before the pandemic started, I had to leave my home with my children. In the month of October 2019 my baby was one month old, my husband attacked me physically and sexually, he did this during the entire time of pregnancy. I did not know anyone in this country, I went to a church to get help, they sent me to a shelter for domestic violence. My husband is still looking for me and threatening me. The court granted me an order of protection. Currently I still live in a domestic violence shelter and what I would like the most is to get an apartment to live with my children. I have a rental voucher, but this is not easy in this country, nobody wants to rent to me because I have no income.
With the pandemic, everything stopped, even the process of my work permit.
