Hi, my name is Dave, and like many others I am here looking for a hand up.I am father of four,two that live with my wife and i, and two that do not. Our boys live with us, they are 14, and 9. our girls live elsewhere. one is 19 and the other is 16..the separation is from our reckless youth,where drugs drove us into the ground, and ruined everything . we came up out of addiction, and had more children ,(the boys). so we have been on the right road since, however the last 5 years have been a struggle, we live in Denver which has had an economic turnover recently,going from affordable to a hyper inflated unaffordable fast. we’re Colorado natives born here. what we’re up against is just an accumulated debt .. I owe 2500 to excel energy,I haven’t been able to pay that for over a year,keeping up on rent was my main concern.I have tried renting rooms but to no avail, my tenants bring problems, don’t pay , etc , leading to more internal problems with my wife. She is a stay at home mom,I work construction. it is a booming industry here, but very competitive. I run my own business Dave’s Home Improvements.
I do pretty good , but when its thin its thin, it has been dry for me for a couple months now, I have applied at a few construction companies, but its a bad time of year for that. so today I got the eviction notice from my landlord. We will surely be homeless, we have nowhere to go….see I had been late for a year or so, now at one month behind, and next month due, they aren’t willing to take any chances…I OWE December rent, and im two days away from January due date.I don’t have a penny. we are expended fully. my truck payment is ten weeks overdue, at 95 a week,..its a loan thru carhop. they have been lenient, but it wont last long.I rely on the truck to bring home money. it has a flat, a flat I can fix,but if they take it its over.
I tried in my spare time to do something on the internet, I opened a shopify store, and sold not one item, they closed it down.
I paid the bill,$59.00 and got it re opened before Christmas, but still no sales, even with ads. I collect scrap metal and recycle, it mostly keeps us fed daily.I also took a bad check , or got scammed for about $5,000 in about may. my bank acct is closed, I owe them 5k.
had a collision in October with no insurance, just got a judgement for 4k. need sr22 insurance now or I lose my license on Jan 21.
Shit is rolling downhill at an alarming rate..
I need about $20,000 to fix this mess.
4k for restitution,
3500 for rent catch up
1000,for truck payments
1000 for insurance for a year
2000 for vehicle repairs, mine and wife’s,
and 2500 for power bill.
the 9,000 surplus will be to purchase ads for my online ventures,(which serve as the long term fix),including my retirement,
and to keep us afloat while I re-ignite my improvement business as the holidays have passed.
Also somewhere in this I will be repaying my bank.
so in short, thanks for reading this, my story is similar to others on here, I know we are all hoping for miracles.
I hope Mine is as others,and we all receive gifts..god bless and again thank you-
I can be donated to at
