Keosha Barnett knows firsthand some of the stresses of the pandemic.
“It’s hard right now, and it feels like I’m going through a depression,” said the single mother, who was forced to cut her hours working in a distribution center to care for her three young children, including one son with sickle cell disease. “School was free, and now I’m paying more than $200 for babysitting every week. Rent is due, my car note is due, and I don’t even have a full week’s check. So, something is going to be behind. It’s really taking a toll on me.”
