Indigenous Mother in need of help

I haven’t been able to make ends meet my father is out of work and cannot work because he is immunocompromised, we are behind in rent and we barely make it to buy enough groceries for me and my kids.
I’m a single mother indigenous really needing help, I’m trying not to quit my last class in order to graduate but work, rent due, bills and food is making me want to
I know not many people have paypal but I also have Venmo which is under my same email Veroninanyc@aol.com . I appreciate anything anyone gives me.

Freelance piano teacher, tutor, one night week server, pt house cleaner

For 10 years I have raised my 2 kids solely on my freelance work. I cleaned one house per week. I taught piano on a community piano. I tutored high needs kids in person. I taught in person math and science classes and ran after school clubs. We had little, but wanted for nothing. 2019 was full of hospitals and doctors as we worked to determine cause and path for one child’s chronic lung disease. All savings were spent surviving that year. Now Covid. Inside – all of the time. High risk – cannot go out. Zero income. Tiny amount of unemployment just started – not a livable income. We own no piano – so continuing to teach and transitioning this to online is not feasible. We don’t own a laptop or other devices for transitioning to online teaching. Food donations do not include allergy safe foods – so unfortunately are not a help. All bills are overdue and keep piling up. Being cooped up inside a tiny apt is not helping lung health…but neighbors not wearing masks makes it vital we stay in….until/maybe we can find a new location to be. Covid has made our lives h___l. We spent the first two months of Covid just plain hungry. Now we search for a way to help others – but need some help ourselves – – financial support to convert income to being virtual/at home income – because as a high risk family, we’ll be inside for much longer.

Spanish Tutor at church

I was a spanish tutor for a group of undocumented kids and since we’re not able to gather we stopped classes and I have no job and no pay. Rent and groceries have been a real challenge specifically now.

Graduate Student/Babysitter/Tutor

Im currently a Grad student who will be in my final semester of Grad school this coming fall. Due to covid, private families that I had tutored for no longer needs care. I am ineligible to receive unemployment and almost every fund I have signed up for have met their amount of people that they can help out. I am in need of funds to help pay off for my final semester of grad school as well as other expenses. Tuition is due in late July and it’s already mid June and I really don’t want to have to take a semester off because of this situation that Covid has has put me in. I cant ask to borrow money from friends because they are in the same boat as me. I can’t take out a loan either to pay for my tuition so I’m in a really rough spot.
