I'm in need of some financial and possible housing assistance. I applied to CareerSource of Gainesville back on January of this year due to a lost of my job back on November 2018. I applied for unemployment but was denied and told to just keep looking for a job. I did so from January of this year until now. I have had a few interviews but no hire. I recently went back to Career Source center for more assistance and was directed to keep applying and hopefully I'll find something soon. while my Rent has been paid for this month I will not be able to take care of it without some assistance in the future. I can get my GRU extended but other bills may suffer in the process. It's possible that I may need to start looking into some government assistance with finance and housing. I'm hoping not but it's looking very grim. can you advice me on my situation:
