Sorry to hear your story, Troy. We still have the highest unemployment in the nation here in Nevada, but no one seems to be addressing the problem. My own adult children are really struggling. I am an individual, not representing any organization or business. I might be able to help Troy with some housing. He can email me if he is interested. Dee
