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.

Independant Executive Chef in VA

I ran my own business and did private events as well as community events to bring awareness to local agriculture and farming. Since the pandemic I have had to rebuild my e tire life. When the pandemic hit my now ex fiance kicked me out of our home with my two small children. I had to find a home and start over with next to nothing as well as losing my job. I have been playing catch up ever since and still haven’t gotten back on my feet. My goal has always been to help others in any way possible and to bring people together. It’s so cool to see people come together to help displaced workers during this pandemic. I know it’s troubled times for everyone. It’s been extra difficult with distance learning as a single parent to fond work and I also returned to college while looking for work in hopes working towards a degree may help me find a career again. I once swore I would never be in a spot to need help. It’s been difficult to accept that I need help due to circumstances outside my control like a worldwide pandemic. Nothing could’ve prepared me for it. I am working towards being on my feet and a better life every single day.
