My fiance and I have our first child on the way. We lived in a terrible neighbour in Clearwater, FL with stressful, poor paying jobs that would never allow us to save for a child. We moved in with my sister to be closer to family and to save some money, but it was tough to find jobs for a while.
Once we found jobs they expected us to give them everything we had, which wasn’t much considering we worked at pizza places. I also had to save for doctors appointments and pay back whatever debt I had as well. We thought everything was fine, but then we were told by my sister that they were moving out and leaving us without a place to go. This was the first we’d heard of any issues going on. When they first offered the place to us we informed them that it might take some time for us to find jobs and they told us they understood. Two months in is when they tell us we’re being kicked out. I have nothing in savings since I had to give them everything I had. On top of that my fiance was held at gunpoint the first day at his job. Luckily he didn’t sustain any injuries but a bullet went through his windshield and put his car out of commission. We currently don’t have the money to fix that either.
My fiance and I have nowhere to go and we are worried about the health and future of our baby. I’ve made pleas to Ellen DeGeneres as well as other websites to help us get on our feet for the sake of our baby. I even created a fundraiser to see if we might be able to get help that way. My goal is to try and raise $2000 to $3000 to cover our expenses such as a deposit for an apartment
