At the end of 2019, Greg started a new job teaching at a small private school in Santa Barbara. Unfortunately, his father got very ill and he went on bereavement to take care of him at the end stages of life. He couldn’t keep his job as a teacher and take care of his Dad at the same time, so he resigned in January 2020. Because of COVID he had a difficult time finding a job and has spent the last year working odd jobs and collecting unemployment. He just started a new job in November, but he needed the loan to catch up on back rent and bills.
