Furloughed Employee DC Resources

Furloughed Employee DC Resources

We have mixed feelings about today's #tuesdaytipspost. On one hand, we're a month into a government shutdown with no end in sight. 👎🏽 On the other hand, communities and small businesses are coming together to do what we can to help each other through this. 🙌🏽
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We're sharing resources for furloughed workers below - caption space is limited, so we fit in as many as we could! Find links to these + other resources on our Stories feed for the remainder of the shutdown. Starting tomorrow, check our "Furlough" Highlights for a one-stop archive of everything we find. Click thru to the sponsor profiles for more info, and be prepared to show your ID to access most services.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you know of any other resources we can share, please tag/DM @collabcreateDC in your posts + Stories. Share this post and our Stories with those who are affected by this shutdown.
