The Entertainment Capital of the World Shuts Down; Now What?

Las Vegas, NV

This grant changed my life and enabled me to get back on track and look forward to the future.

We recently helped a young woman whose life was turned upside down due to the pandemic. She is just one of the overwhelming number of people in the entertainment industry in Las Vegas that suddenly had no work and was beginning to recover by starting her own online business. She was still fighting unemployment because as a contractor in Nevada, it wasn’t clear that she was eligible. In the meantime, she was 4 months behind on rent. She had cut out every last expense that wasn’t essential and then was suddenly called to California to help her parents who were being forced to evacuate from their home due to a quickly spreading fire.

We know she has a lot of drive and will be back on her feet in no time.  She wrote to us:

I feel like you were rooting for me to be successful and now I am.

Dear Resident Relief Team,

I hope you accept this card as a sincere token of gratitude. The Resident Relief Foundation assisted me with a grant to pay the back rent I owed due to losing my job because of the COVID pandemic. This grant changed my life and enabled me to get back on track and look forward to the future.

I have never had to ask for any financial assistance in the past. I have been financially independent, but when I lost my job and the economy was shut down around me, I needed help.  I am so deeply grateful for all the hard work of your team. You chose to assist me after the thorough vetting process. I appreciate the financial course you gave me.  I feel like you were rooting for me to be successful and now I am.

From the bottom on my heart – THANK YOU.

Sincerely,

Sara
