American’s are in big trouble when it comes to paying their rents and mortgages as the Covid unemployment crisis hits new heights. So what if you’ve been out of work for 6 months due to Covid, with no signs of work in sight, and you have run out of savings and need to pay your rent or mortgage? Are we about to see even more horrendous homelessness numbers?

If Covid Has Made It Impossible For You To Pay Your Rent, These Groups May Help

According to Indivisible;

“Thanks to the inaction of Senate Republicans, much of the financial assistance and protections included in early COVID-19 response packages has expired in the last week. And now, at the beginning of the month, millions of people across the country are struggling to pay the rent and bills that will keep them and their families safe for the next few weeks.

We know it didn’t have to be this way, and we’re hard at work pushing for strong continued aid from the government. But in the meantime, people need help.

We started the IndiGIVEable program because we know there are tons of worthy causes out there that deserve funding, and they’re not always in our wheelhouse. We have a responsibility to use our platform to drive resources where they need to go — so today we’re asking you to support efforts nationwide providing rental assistance, eviction protection, and services to keep people afloat at this critical moment.

Below, we’ve collected a few groups around the country who are working to provide assistance to those in need. This is by no means a comprehensive list, and we encourage you to seek out efforts in the communities you care about. If you’re able to donate, please do — and if you’re in need of assistance yourself, these organizations are a great place to start:

 

For more ways to get involved, feel free to reach out to your local Indivisible group to find out about how they’re responding to the COVID-19 crisis.

In a better world, we wouldn’t have to shoulder this burden for one another, because people would have the public services and the resources they need to survive and thrive. We’re still working for that world. But where we can, we have to care for one another. Thanks for caring — in whatever way you can.”

If you’re not familiar – Indivisible Project is a locally-led, people-powered movement of thousands of local groups in red, blue, and purple states, and in urban, suburban, and rural areas. Their mission is to power and lift up a grassroots movement of local groups to defeat the Trump agenda, elect progressive leaders, and realize bold progressive policies.
