Inspiritus, a non-profit organization with a location in Nashville, has resources available to help individuals in the community who have a hardship due to COVID-19.

The organization recently received a CARES grant through the Department of Human Services to help Tennesseans whose incomes have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Inspiritus can assist with mortgage payments/rent/utilities, if there is a hardship due to the pandemic.

In order to help the organization must obtain information that verifies hardship due to Covid-19.

Examples of documents the organization may request are:

  • Unemployment from the Department of Labor (specifically Pandemic Unemployment Assistance Verification Letter)
  • Separation, furlough, or reduced hours letter from employer
  • Past due letter from mortgage company
  • Past due letter or eviction notice
  • Copy of lease in client’s name
