A COVID-19 story

Rooftop Client

Toya is a substitute teacher for MNPS.  She lost a few days during the tornado and now school is closed at least until the end of April.  Toya is a single mom with a six-year-old son.  Substitute teachers are not contract employees and don't qualify for unemployment.  Toya would love to pick up a second job, but with school closed she has no options for childcare for her son.  She is one of many Nashville residents who don't have enough in savings to manage a full month without employment.  Thanks to generous donations to the Untied Way of Greater Nashville, Rooftop will be able to cover Toya's April rent.
