Since Matthew Turner was laid off in October, he estimates he’s applied to close to 600 jobs, with no luck.
Nearly as difficult has been his hunt for rental assistance.
Turner’s contacted many local organizations in North Carolina where he lives, but has been denied or left on waitlists by all of them. He and his husband, Gerard, have depleted their savings and don’t know how they’re going to come up with May’s rent for their Raleigh apartment.
“It’s incredibly stressful,” Turner, 48, said. “You don’t know what else to do.”
