Henrico County Public Schools Office of Family & Community Engagement
Amidst the rhythm of daily life, Renee a single parent, finds herself navigating the world alongside her nine-year-old daughter, a bright presence who attends Trevvett Elementary. Their world has taken an unforeseen turn as they navigate their daily routines. Renee has been in a state of unemployment for over a month now, finding herself enveloped in a sense of uncertainty. The support she anticipated, like unemployment benefits, still eludes her as she now deals with the potential threat of having hip surgery, leaving her in a financial void. It's as if the taps of support have run dry; there's no available cash, no familial safety net to fall back on. The child support, a crucial financial lifeline, remains unpaid. The occupation that once sustained her family, relying on a 100% commission model, was significantly affected during the tumultuous times of COVID-19.
