    I just been going down hill in the past year and need some help. Look for help for a little while just to get back on my feet. This year with the pandemic my job closed, had some health issues, the home were I was staying pipes busted and I was unable to fix them. I'm at rock bottom now and trying to rebuild. Just need a little help. The other question I have is this building pet friendly cause I do have a small dog. I would love to keep him with me.
