My husband and I fell in love August 31, 2012 under a blue moon. We were in each other’s periphery for years (same school, many mutual friends, same parties even after high school) but for one reason or another never really talked. But that night the stars must have aligned for us. We were in love and wasted no time building our life together. After a few months together we knew we wanted to start a family, and I became pregnant with our son. We moved in with family to save money. We both worked full time and focused on saving up for our new life. Unfortunately, at just 18 weeks pregnant, i developed preeclampsia. I was put on bedrest, and was told to get ready for a very premature baby. While tough, my husband and I had each other, and we knew we could do anything. Against all odds, I made it to 35 weeks and gave birth to a healthy baby boy. It took months for my body to recover, but I was finally cleared to work. Our son was eight months old when my husband was in a horrible car accident. He suffered a traumatic brain injury, and we weren’t even sure if he would wake up. I was told to expect him to be in the neuro icu for months, then rehab for many more months after that. But much to the doctors’ surprise, my husband was released from the ICU after 3 days to the rehab facility. A week after the crash I discovered I was pregnant again. My health started declining pretty quickly and I lost my job. My husband miraculously recovered and was back to work in a month, but I was put on hospital bed rest at 25 weeks and our daughter was born at 31 weeks. She spent a month in the NICU. Things were tough at times, but my husband and I had each other. We went through more in our first few years than many people do in a lifetime. However, it took years to get our finances in order to finally get out on our own. We finally made it in March of last year. My health never returned to normal, and the last few years have been spent in and out of hospitals, but we still managed. We had our kids, our home, and each other. And for a few months, everything was okay. We lived paycheck to paycheck, but we were happy. We started working more to try to get money saved, but it caused our income to be a few hundred dollars to high for me to qualify for medical assistance. I lost my insurance, and eventually couldn’t afford to pay for my 3 blood pressure medications, which caused me to get sicker, and I had to cut back my hours. Then, our car breaks down. Thousands to fix it, but we now had to uber or find rides to work, and we started to fall behind on everything. Our bank account went negative, and bills started piling up, and despite trying as hard as we could, we couldn’t pull ourselves out of it. Eventually our rent fell behind, and now we have 10 days to come up with the back rent our we will be removed. My son is supposed to start kindergarten next week, and I don’t even know where we will be. My husband and i are still as strong as ever, but this time I don’t see us coming out on top. Ive applied for financial help, but my county is not even accepting applications for section 8. Thank you for listening, and feel free to email me any questions.
Thank you for taking time to read my story.
My name is Laura. I am a 20-something-year-old, with no family, no support and simply lost right now.
I need the sum of 5000 dollars, just to live in the next 2 months.
I need almost 30000 – to get out of debt.
I will be focusing on the smaller amount, of course, just to get me by.
I never had the courage to ask for money, as I never felt like I deserved it. However, a few days ago, an Uber driver offered me a free ride (it was pouring rain) and I accepted. They asked me about my life and encouraged me to get my story out, maybe start a blog – so, I’m trying. But I need help.
I was an abused and molested child. My cousins raped me when I was little. However, I still went to their house, because they were wealthy, and we had food over there. I accepted the sexual abuse, for food. My home… that’s a different story – my immediate family abused us (me and my little bro), beaten us to the pulp, destroyed us spiritually. My father is a savage alcoholic. He gambles and the only thing he taught me was: “You are only here to wipe my shit stains and bring me coffee. You are a whore. And you better learn how to steal.” – since I was 8, this was the speech that I was given almost everyday.
I finally abandoned that house, at 19 years old, when my father tried to throw me out the window for being inside the house at 8 pm. It was the first time I had fought back physically, and it was horrible. I managed to run past him, in my underwear in the middle of the city. My mum threw out the balcony some items for me. And I left, and I found these MLM people who promised me the world and promised me that if I worked hard enough, I will make it. Because I deserved it. I could get my mum and my brother and my granny out of that horrible place. Even though, they have all abused me. So, I invested – in a lie, a stupid horrible lie – and got myself in deals with loan sharks, sold and pawned almost everything I had. Just to built something out of myself. However, I was spending 500-600 dollars a month on rent, utilities, the office space, and I also had to take a second job in the office building as a cleaning lady. My debt was increasing. But that’s not all…
Unfortunately, stuff hit the fan… I found myself in an abusive relationship, and one of my co-workers was sexually assaulting me. No one did anything about it. They all said that it was clear that I enjoyed it – the first time it happened, most people in the office saw it. And I was crying, with my skirt torn and started puking. They still said it was on me. I couldn’t handle it anymore. And my then abusive boyfriend kicked me out.
I found myself on the streets and slept for a month, during cold fall, in parks, in the subway – in a new town 500 km from where I lived 20 something years of my life, washing myself in bathrooms and I finally became a Sales assistant, in a mall.
However, I found myself in the new capital with another bunch of abusive people.
While trying to find the cheapest place to rent, I found people who as my room-mates, stole money, my wallet, my clothing and left me hanging. The landlord couldn’t accept it and kicked me out.
And again and again. I finally made it, I had made enough money to share a flat, but with more money, and as awful as that sounds, I started getting out of that poor mentality and found some decent people.
I got myself into therapy (for 3 years and a half now), I found myself better and better jobs, until I managed to get a small internship at an IT company.
My latest ex-boyfriend is my now boss. He is tormenting me, giving me all the other tasks of my peers, while they go out and eat and celebrate and do nothing really. He has started to stalk me, has broken into my house when I was not there, has started following my friends. Calls me in the middle of the night, calls my apartment. According to our therapist, he is either a psychopath or a sociopath. I don’t know and I do not care. The police can’t do anything about it. My work place won’t do anything about it – cause I am too “sensitive”.
I lost my work place, as it’s no longer a healthy environment, as my boss is simply destroying all my projects and giving me the worst tasks, that aren’t even in my responsibilities. “You think you’re gonna find anything better? Stop whoring around and do your job. If you don’t like it, quit.” He has scammed me out of 2000 dollars.. Now, some of my friends have decided that this … is too weird for them, so they stopped calling, replying or anything. Because they were afraid. And they’re right. I mean, I”m afraid…
And now, I have to pay 500$ today, in order to keep my apartment. I have immediate debt at the bank – 500$ next month – cause I couldn’t pay it last month.
I postponed as much as I could, I offer my English skills to make some extra money, I sold again – almost everything that I have built. I am tired.
I am tired of working so hard for one decent good night sleep – no nightmares, no night sweats, no terrors (of dad raping mom, of me being raped, of the beatings etc…). I am tired of working so hard to afford food and decent clothes. I am tired of having to postponing my fucking foot fungus or other immediate medical needs, simply because I cannot afford it.
I am tired of fighting. I am so tired. I have been raped, abused, traumatised, left, cheated on, lied to and people have stole from me. And
I need help.
I can offer more details to anyone who is interested. Honestly, I hope that at some point, I will turn this into a successful blog – that will also serve as a new beginning for other people in my situation. I truly honestly hope that maybe someday, I will help someone exactly like me.
Any help is so much appreciate, you have no idea.
Also, I offer any kind of English support for smaller projects that you might need help with. For free, ofc.
May you have a great day! And thank you for reading this.
I pray that someone please help me and my family and God touch your hearts to help. This has not been our year. In March, my car broke down on the highway and found out that I had a blown engine which would cost 1200. I ended up selling it for the KBB value which was under $100. In April, I only have 3 more classes to go before I obtain my degree, but found out I cant finish school due to not enough federal money left. In order for me to finish I will have to pay 3,800. I am so depressed and stressed.
Now, I just received a notice yesterday saying I have 5 days before we will be evicted. I am a struggling single mom whose taking care of my daughter and disabled mother. The job I have isn’t enough to pay our rent. I have to use 3 paychecks to pay and sometimes even 4. I cant afford to get a second job because of transportation. I have extinguish every source of finances I have. No savings, I withdrawn my retirement early, too many loans, just to keep a roof over our head and survive. I dont have no other place to turn and I asked my family and they dont have the money to prevent us from getting evicted. I owe $1180. I am praying that anyone please help us. I am so hurt that I would let me daughter down. This is her first time ever having her own bedroom shes 15. I am desperately praying. Please bless us with a miracle. We would appreciate anything anyone can bless us with. Take care and God Bless.
It has been five years since my husband committed suicide. Thrown into bringing up our children up by myself. I never felt “why me” because I knew we could do anything together. Moving forward to today, I have run out of money. Desperately trying to find jobs in a small community has proven to be extremely difficult and the one job I have is ending this week. While trying every avenue that I can to get some money, nothing has worked and I am about to lose my rental. I have no immediate family. My mother and father have passed and no where to turn to for help. On top of everything my appendix burst last week. That bill alone will be huge! As I cry when writing on this site I hope for a miracle. It is beyond me on how I will tell my children that we have no home. Thank you for reading my story and I hope for help.
Last summer I resigned from my job in DC and moved back to VA to launch my business and be closer to family. The primary catalyst for this move was my father’s health. Prior to making this decision, I prayed, analyzed the pros and cons, and prayed some more. Ultimately, I felt that this move was the right thing to do. And, at first, it was going well. But then everything dried up and I soon realized that I’d grossly miscalculated how far the lump sum I had would go with new responsibilities. As a result, I found myself struggling and facing eviction from the apartment I’d only been in for a couple of months. I was broke and in a really bad space because I thought this move was what God had led me to do.
To generate income while still building my business and helping with my family, I applied to be a substitute teacher. I was subsequently offered a full-time teaching position. However, by this time I was already way behind in everything. Ultimately, I had to file for bankruptcy in November. By doing this, I was hoping for a fresh start; but things just continued in a spiral downward and I am now finding myself in another financial hole. More specifically, I am presently facing eviction proceedings (again) and in dire need of financial assistance. I’ve racked my brain trying to figure out how I arrived here and I haven’t been able to pinpoint the exact cause(s).
With all that’s transpired over the past year, it’s been tempting to chalk things up to this move being the wrong decision. However, when I reflect on my decision making process and, most importantly, the main reason for moving back (family), that resolve seems incorrect and a part of me believes this season has been one of righteous affliction. I also believe that God is using this season to prune and refine me–especially in the areas of faith, discipline, and pride.
The latter of these is, perhaps, the most difficult and perhaps even a contributing factor to my current lot. Moreover, while I know that God is a provider, I have come to recognize that sometimes that provision comes in ways we least expect and/or is attached to doing something different or uncomfortable. With that being said, if you are able to assist me, I would be most appreciative.
To stop the court proceedings, I am in need of $2500. The amount I am requesting is $5000 in order to pay August’s rent, take care of some outstanding bills, and have funds to tie me over until the first pay period of the school year (September 6, 2019). Your kind consideration of this request would be greatly appreciated.
My husband, Justin, and I are looking to pay off our car loans (total $26,000 combined) so that our credit score will increase and we may have the opportunity to purchase a home. Last night, Justin’s SUV got repossessed after we called our insurance due to a flat tire and needed road side assistance. Because of this, Justin called his auto lender to discuss settlement, and they gave an option to buy out the vehicle for $6,000 less than what is owed on the loan. We would like to take this opportunity, but cannot without help. I’d like to offer some back story of how we got in this position and who we are as people so that you understand us a bit more.
My name is Lacey, age 26, and I am currently obtaining my Master’s in Clinical Psychology. Justin, age 28, is a chef along the Emerald Coast and has recently been accepted into Johnson and Wales University’s bachelors culinary program. He was awarded an academic scholarship however due to that, FAFSA did not award as much to him based on our 2017 taxes, this meaning housing will come majority out of pocket. Due to this, we are looking to purchase a home. We have rented thus far and the renting process has not treated us well. We are good tenants with a good rental history however, we would like our own home to take care of and build equity in. Through our search, we have been informed that our credit does not qualify for home ownership due to my outstanding student loan debt ($234,000; Bachelors from The University of Alabama and Graduate from Purdue University) to income ratio. My car loan is $12,500 and Justin’s care loan is $15,600 with a total buyout of $9,600, including the repossession fee. We are looking to move within the next month so that Justin can begin school in September.
What us landed us in this position: In February, we purchased a 30 ft. travel trailer that we hoped to live in full-time however, we were sold a lemon. The floor was rotten, the ceiling caved in during transportation – we were devastated but were up for the challenge. We deconstruction and reconstructed the entire travel trailer making it a tiny home on wheels however became tiny hell on wheels. Because we were basically playing with different sets of Lego’s, the construction ended up being a bust. Leaks and plumbing issues from day 1. Traveling also became a huge and costly burden to bare. Because we could not find a vacant RV lot close to where we were working in Destin, FL, we both had to quit our jobs and live on the little we had saved. We had hoped to live a minimal, tiny life however, we realize we jumped way in over our head and it swallowed us. We just want to get back to stability.
We do not have family that we can ask, as my parents are paying for my sister to go through school and Justin’s family is helping his sister with her children. We do not have other relatives or friends that are doing well-off enough to help us. We’d appreciate anything, and really just want this chance to do this right.
Thank you for reading,
Hello everyone, I’m currently trying to get back on my feet after losing my job and during that time my father tried to commit suicide and my mental health and depression not being able to handle everything going on with my family being torn apart. In that time I had been applying to several jobs and interviews and didn’t have any luck. It took me months! In the mean time I’d just sell items on eBay & Poshmark until that started to slow down for me in sales but finally. Until this week when I finally landed a job that’ll be great for me to get back to normal. Only problem is my rent is behind $1520 now for June & July 1st is approaching as well which is $988 for the new month. My new job is 13.75 full time but since I’m just starting this week I don’t have enough time to generate enough from my checks. Which sucks because if I would’ve gotten this I could’ve been okay. I’ve tried everything and don’t have any help because I don’t have any close family and my mother & father is poor & struggling as well. I don’t have any friends as well who are in positions to help. It would be a blessing if anyone could get me through this challenging time because I’ve been crying for days and miserable because I feel so helpless. I thought things were going to get better for me this year but it’s like I keep having the worst luck when I work very hard! I just fell on hard times unfortunately. I was told by the apartment office rent manager that if I pay by the 1st of July before new month for rent show with a money order or cashiers check they can go ahead and dismiss the eviction but once July rent shows I’d need June & July. I don’t get a paycheck until July 5th and even that won’t be enough it’ll be about 300 something since it’s only a few training hours and not the full 40 hours a week yet. I attached a screenshot of the amount from my apt portal log in. Any help would be greatly appreciated and a blessing to get me back on my feet.

Hello, I am making a post here today because me and my fiance are in a very bad spot. Currently we are on the verge of losing our apt because we are about to be 3 months behind on rent and other bills. This was no fault of our own since the job I work is the this all happened. To make a long story short my job has been having some issues with getting my laptop to boot there work desktop since I work from home. I had to buy multiple USB sticks and even a new laptop since there software broke my fiances old laptop that I was using at first when the issue started. This has been going on since February of this year and they won’t own up to there mistakes and I have lost so many hours which made it to where I was barely making any money and there were multiple times where I didn’t get a check at all. We have been trying our best to keep up with bills and have tried so many things but nothing worked and I was and still am looking for a new job with no luck as of yet. To make matters worse a lot of the money I did make ended up having to go to my fiances medical bills and prescriptions since he was having seizures and asthma attacks and was in and out of the hospital the past few months which set us back even farther. So now we are at the end of our rope and really need some help I don’t want to be homeless and I don’t want him to be homeless again and everything we have tried hasn’t worked even talking with my job hasn’t worked and at the moment we are being blamed by my job for tampering with a laptop they sent me to use for work when we did not do so. So because of this I will probably get fired even though I did nothing wrong but they don’t believe me. The walls are closing in extremely fast and we are terrified that we will lose everything that we worked so hard for to have and keep only to be lost because of one job. So we are asking for some real help this is no scam and it very important to us. If anyone sees this and finds it in there heart to help please do and we thank you in advance and we are very grateful to anyone that can help. We are very pressed for time since we could lose the place as soon as the first week of July. We only made it this far because our landlord has been working with us but she can’t do that anymore so please we are looking for a blessing and we pray that we get one. So thank you everyone and have a blessed day.
Life is hard. Sometimes, it’s hard and we’re forced to make choices that aren’t always the smartest. I’ve done a lot of robbing Peter to pay Paul over the last 18 months and it’s caught up to me in a way I simply can not recover from on my own. My husband is disabled and I’m currently trying to get out of my marriage due to years of emotional abuse. My 19 year old daughter is in college and will have more expenses in a month that I need to help cover. I’m on the verge of eviction (must pay in a day and get caught up ASAP) from my home and can’t afford moving expenses. My credit score is awful due to several years of mounting medical bills so I am unable to obtain affordable loans on my own. Recently, my paychecks were garnished for an old debt that made it even more difficult to keep up. I do work full time and I drive for Lyft part time to help but the income from that has been even less now that summer has hit. I have title loans on my cars already and so that’s just not an additional option. I simply cannot get out of this without help. I’m happy to provide any additional details or answer any questions and provide any documentation needed.
Ive resulted in asking for help as i’m now faced with a horrible situation i cannot get out of. I was abused (physically, sexually, mentally) since i was a child and now i’m 19. I left home because it broke me as a person staying there, even though we didn’t have financial issues (we were middle-high class), i couldn’t deal with the constant beatings and feeling worthless. my partner from another country offered for us to move in together in September, so I took that leap of faith and honestly it was amazing. he came here to study and work, i wasn’t mentally ready to get back into education so i decided to just work for now. I got a job as an online assistant for a supermarket, i’d have to sleep during the day and walk late nights where i was sexually harassed once and my mum had killed herself because of me. i’m no stranger to suicide as i saw my dad and brother do it in 2006 and 2016. but it still affected my work capabilities. i was dismissed for my lack of coping mechanisms on my birthday. i’ve been jobless since (February 2019) and me and my partner have been financially struggling as he isn’t entitled to maintenance loans (has not lived here long enough) and to make matters worse, we are threatened with eviction. we have till august to get out and no one will hire me. i’ve applied for jobs i’m not even qualified for.. applied for jobs i have loads of experience in and interview after interview it feels like this entire city is out to get me. i applied for benefits (PIP) over a year ago and now i’m waiting another year to go to court so i can get it as DWP lied on my report. i have no one to turn to financially and i’m not sure what to do and how i’m going to move out with nothing. my partner earns £600 a month and rent is £580.. so we hardly get any food. rest of money goes towards water as the tap water here isn’t drinkable. i don’t know if anyone will help me, but i’m so depressed and i feel like i had to swallow my pride and ask. thank you
Hi all my name is Lynneclare and I my fiancé and my step children will lose the house I have worked so very very hard for in the next few days. Growing up I never expected that I would one day have a house to call my own as I was fostered out at the age of 13. This is not to say that I did not love my parents and that they did not love me just that after they were divorced myself and my siblings lived with our mother who often went through severe bouts of depression and anxiety. This resulted in me being fostered out to others as she found it difficult to cope with 3 kids on her own I suppose.
From there I thought I had met the boy of my dreams and by the time I was 19, pregnant and living with a violent drug abuser.i ha d my son at 20 on the 18 of October 10 days after my birthday but by the time my son was 2 months old, his bad had attacked the both of of us resulting in him going to prison for GBH on myself and GBH with intent on our baby. as a result of the head fractures my child sustained he lives with constant migraines.
So I was alone again. I had to sort myself out for my sons sake which I did. I got a council house, sat my Alevels, met someone new after about 3 years and with his encouragement obtained a degree in Deaf studies and Law. Whilst doing this I was working and raising my child. Following this I got job as a communication support worker for Deaf students at our local college.
I then decided that I would like to teach so sat my PGCE upon completion I secured a job teaching Law. I thought I could not be happier but then found out I was expecting I was so happy, happier than I had ever been. I was building a relationship with my father and had a goo dish relationship with my mother.
This is when it started unraveling I found out that my partner had been sleeping with our friend and that she was pregnant too, due to this stress I lost our daughter. I then found out that he had been gambling away all our money and had not been paying the mortgage.
At this point I kicked him out so was on my own again. I tried sooo hard to get back on track and after a while met someone else and we have been really happy.
Then I lost both my parents in quick succession.my mum went in the September followed by my dad on Christmas Eve. I lost my job and have been in a state of disbelief ever since. I have been burying my head in the sand and have not asked for help,or even told anyone what’s happening. I cannot blame the mortgage company entirely as I accept full responsibility for my own failings but I am desperate now I really don’t want to lose my house and then I think my fiancé. I have lived here for 23 years and I love this little house even though it really isn’t big enough for all 4 of us.
I can’t see any other way out of this mess other than to sort out this problem so that I can then tackle my fragile mental state and go back into teaching. I have tried to talk to experts and the lender but find myself so scared I feel sick and start to shake. I have worked hard all my life I have had some really bad knocks but have never asked for anything. Please, please help me.
In turn I will,pay this forward by helping others with their mental health issues, or I will support deaf people as and when required and for free. I will help people like me that find themselves in a bad place trying to find the light once again. My current arreas are £11,00
Thank C you so much for your time xxx
Hi, I’m a college student and warehouse worker struggling to get on top of my bills. In September, I had to have surgery following a workplace injury. Upon return to work in Novemer, my paychecks were docked to $100 a week. My rent is $1,034/month. I survived off disability savings and help from family members. I fought with them for a few months on it until I (foolishly) got tired of it and quit my job. I got a new one in April, but I’m only paid twice a month, and the waiting period for my first paychecks to go through took forever. In May, I struggled to pay rent and was taken to court over late payments. Because I spent all my paychecks paying legal fees and two separate late fees, I’m going through the same process all over again with June’s rent. I was paid on June 13, but the whole paycheck went to May’s rent, late fees, and court fees. My next paycheck will be on the 27th. In order to avoid eviction, I need to pay $1,640 by June 20th. I’ve tried to get a loan or some extra help because after this, I’ll be caught up but I keep getting rejected because I’m young (just 22) and don’t have good credit. Attached is a screenshot of what I owe from my property manager’s website. I would include the eviction notice as well if I wasn’t working right now. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am asking for a 7000 dollar donation please help me
Hello, my name is Angie and in December 2018 is really when my life took a nose dive. I am on disability due to migraines to which I have numerous triggers. Disability doesn’t pay very well and I was working a part-time receptionist job until I was wrongfully terminated. I also got a notice at that time about the Dept. of Education going to garnish my wages over student loans that I thought were discharged (they are now). My vehicle broke and I didn’t have the money to fix it so I let it go back thinking it would help not having a car note to pay. One month my bank decided to pay everything but my rent thus it was returned and they tacked on a returned fee, a $100 late fee and the bank also hit me with an insufficient funds fee. It got really cold and my furnace was running constantly but the thermostat wasn’t getting above 66 degrees. I called for maintenance and two gentlemen came to the house and changed the thermostat on the wall and never looked at the furnace. I went down under the house and figured out that the maintenance guy who dewinterized the house never changed the filter because the brand new one was still sitting on top of the furnace. I still ended up with a $700 gas bill. Meanwhile I’m getting farther and farther behind. The leasing office wouldn’t return my emails or calls when I asked them to send me a copy of my account so I could maybe try to get some assistance. By the time they did they also filed it with the court for eviction. The trustee won’t help if it’s already in court and I’ve called every church and community center in the city with no luck. I have to have $2250 paid by Thursday at 6pm or be moved out by then. I don’t have a vehicle or anywhere to go. If I can just get through this without losing my home I’ll find a roommate and another part-time job but I am desperate and all I do is cry and pray. Please if you could find it in your heart, anything would be appreciated.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, it is really appreciated.
My name is Liz and I recently turned forty,I live with my nine year old son Luke. I don’t get help from Luke’s dad at all which makes it difficult financially, so I have taken to begging online to try and keep our home.
Last year I had a breakdown due struggling so much on different levels. I have been receiving help for this but it means I couldn’t continue working at the time. I am now and have been for a while actively seeking employment as well as seriously looking into retraining.
Luke has had a really tough time at school in the last year due to him being bullied, which has taken many many meetings to try to resolve with the school and outside organisations, it is still ongoing. Due to Luke not feeling safe in school he has had lots of time off or gone in late, this means finding work very difficult.Luke has missed quite a bit of school and he needs extra tuition to catch up, which I can’t pay for. Also I am fully aware that it hasn’t been easy for Luke to see me depressed and struggling.
Money is extremely tight and I never have enough to even cover the essentials each month. We already use food banks and I have sold most of our things, only keeping the items we really need. I don’t drive, have a social life, drink or smoke and we don’t have holidays or days out. We are really living as basic as can be.
Bailiffs were round over Christmas just gone and I have debts with rent arrears, the water company, council tax, and a loan. Although I have arrangements for repaying sometimes I can’t keep to them, hence the court hearing in a few weeks. If I can’t get the £979.71 plus £325 court fees by 10th June 2019 we will be evicted and still have to pay the above amount.
I have decided that retraining as an electrician would be a great way for me to resolve the financial problems in the long term.I then can get work that is better paid and more flexible as I will have the chance to be self employed. I have no help from family so I need to consider child care when making any career decisions. Also I need to be driving so I can travel for training purposes as well as work, so that is another expensive to find money for.
I am also considering moving area in the future so Luke can change school and I can have a better chance of a good career.
I feel hopeful at the thought of massive positive changes to mine and Luke’s future but right now we need your help please.
Any donations you can give to us will be gratefully received.
Thank you. :)

Hello, my name is Marnie Horner and I am a 52 yr old single mom of a high school senior getting ready to graduate with honors on June 2nd, 2019. My struggle became “real” to me last November 2nd when I was let go from my GM position in property Management due to the owner selling the property and because I was the highest paid on the payroll, I got the ax. I was devastated to say the least, and was already living paycheck to paycheck. On November 6th, 2018 I replied to an ad on Indeed from Platinum Supplemental Insurance, as well as several other positions listed, just desperate for anything as the holidays were coming up and the cold winter with higher heating bills to follow. On November 9th I received notification that I was selected to move forward with the licensing progress and would begin working out in the field when I passed the exam and received my license. I has also applied for unemployment when I lost my job and was required to seek employment and complete a weekly update as to my status. When I entered the information about being selected for the position I was informed that I would not be eligible to receive unemployment even though I didn’t have any income coming in yet, but was still considered employed. I was fortunate enough that that company paid for the course work, but I was required to pay to take the exam and the license when I passed. So I studied hard for the next 2 weeks and scheduled to take the exam. I failed it by 1 correct answer on my first attempt which cost me $75, and then failed it by 2 correct answers on my second attempt, so being out $150 right at the holidays was not ideal, but I moved forward, came up with another $75 and finally passed on my third attempt. I knew once I received my license that I would be going out in the field as they call it and would be required to pay for my own lodging, gas and meals, but this was an investment my friends and family were willing to make for me, and I certainly did not want to disappoint them and worked hard to learn as much as I could from the training mentor the company sent to help me get started, and I was actually lucky enough to make the sale on my first solo presentation, which is very motivating, and since this is 100% commission based that was a big plus. The few weeks, I was not as fortunate to land any sales, and the pile of bills (rent, utilities, gas for my vehicle to even get into the field as well as lodging) just kept coming obviously. I am currently 3 months behind on my rent, with the landlord threatening eviction, justifying so, and my utilities are about to be turned off if not paid by May 15th and on top of that I’m still trying to provide food and bare essentials for my daughter getting to graduate. On top of that there is the expense of hosting an open house, which we have managed to arrange to have together with her best friend, which helps some of the cost. I’m just so ashamed to look like I am failing, when the fact is I go out each and every week and give it 110%, but don’t land a sale everytime. I am a hard working, disciplined person, not lazy at all just swallowing my pride and asking for a little help. Once I get a more steady income coming in, my plan is to be able to pay it forward, as it does feel good being able to help a person in need!
Any help given is most sincerely appreciated!
Hi, my name is Alexis Vilay and I’m from Seattle, WA, currently living in Renton, WA. I don’t even know where to start honestly. I can list out what I have in debt but it’s just too easy that way. It’s also so easy to tell myself that I did this to myself and I don’t deserve any help. I don’t want to think that way because I’m usually very optimistic and positive minded. I hate asking for help but it has come to the point where I have nothing and no one.
I want to first mention that I am pregnant, first pregnancy, and with twin girls. This was a surprise of course but at this point, May 9th 2019, I am about 27 weeks pregnant and will be due in 3 or less months now. What makes me bring this up is that I feel like I’m already disappointing my unborn daughters. I am definitely not prepared whatsoever. I only have blankets and maybe 4 or 5 matching pairs of outfits for them (which aren’t the outfits you want them to wear everyday and be comfortable and get messy in) and they’re not even newborn size… Probably only have less than 10 pairs of socks for them to share. What I don’t have is a lot that I need and could’ve had if I didn’t get myself into a financial mess… I don’t have diapers, bottles, bibs, towels or any type of baby bath products, milk formula (I will be breastfeeding I have WIC benefits but that will only help me out so much since formula goes by fast… and with twins….. I don’t even want to think about that right now). I don’t have car seats or a double stroller or even strollers at all. I don’t have any regular newborn sized clothes to put them in once it’s time to leave the hospital. I don’t have a crib but I’m not worried about that, they can have my mattress while I sleep on the floor or use a hand me down mattress or something from my parents if they even have one….. Whatever I know that I don’t have, I just think about how I can let them live with what I do have (personal items, not baby items) and go by with it. But it’s just embarrassing to me… I know I can get some stuff from the dollar store but I can’t even afford a $20 trip to the dollar store….
I’m also incredibly in so much debt….. I don’t know if it’s easier to list them out or type out the whole story. I don’t have a problem with writing so I don’t mind either way. This is where I really don’t know where to start because there is so much….
Also wanted to mention that I left my job due to the chemical smell that I constantly smelled everyday. I worked at an auto body shop so I can always smell metal or paint chemicals, and it’s always dusty from the labor guys sanding down panels or bondo. I knew I had to leave but now I just help my mother at her small business where she is a tailor/seamstress. I really am not expecting her to pay me as much as she does. She’s going through a lot, herself, and I feel so bad that she is spending as much as she does on me to help me pay rent and buy clothes thatll fit me since I’m just getting bigger and bigger. I don’t want to end up telling her side of things because if I had extra money, I would just give some to her. Anyways. Now I’m just helping her at her work 2-3 days a week. Also just started my GED program where I go to my classes 3 days a week. I know that this GED will get me somewhere and find me a better job eventually. That is the mindset and goal I have right now but it’s also being interfered with.
Unfortunately and inconveniently, my partner and father of the twins also quit his job because of personal choices. Hes not really the best in keeping a job. I dont want to make this about complaining about him because i can do that all day. Anyways he got a new job as a temp and im not loving it. He gets paid less than what he used to make and he gets paid every week rather than every 2 weeks so, to me, is like they’re taking more taxes out of his paychecks since it’s more often now.
First of all I used to loan money from Moneytree. I don’t know if they add interest or late payment but I’m pretty sure I owe them more than I even think I do right now. About 2 months ago, I loaned 400, interest was 90 dollars so I owed them 490 at a certain date. Once that date came, I didn’t have the money due to quitting my job. So I let that amount overdraft from my checking account, which added $30 overdraft fee of course. Maybe a couple days later I loan another 200 from Moneytree because of how broke and hungry I am. Not cause I’m pregnant and had cravings, I was legit hungry. So I believe loaning 200 gave me $30 interest? So I owed 230… Then I check my checking account with my bank a day after or so and I noticed that the bank returned that 490 that I originally owed. They also returned the 230 from my checking to Moneytree …. So now I owe Moneytree 490 plus 230? I’m not sure if they charge me interest for nonpayment over time but just letting you know I haven’t went to Moneytree to pay anything back in about 2 months now. I feel like crap because this is the most debt I’ve been in. And I didn’t mean to but I did it to myself.
Now my bank account is -$170 because they charged me the $30 overdraft fee several times. I don’t even want to check how many times I’ve been charged that amount, I just know that once I saw that it charged me more than 4 times, I signed out of the bank app.
For the last 3 months, since the last week that I worked at the autobody shop, I’ve been doing half payments for rent. My rent per month is $1050 for a 1 bedroom. Which is not bad actually its one of the cheapest options in the area. Also this apartment only accepts low income. The fact that i cant even pay that amount (my partner and I) is terrible. The fact that i have to do half and half payments per month is terrible.
This month of May, I get notified by my apartment that if I don’t pay the full amount in full in 3 days (Monday the 13th), I would get an eviction notice. This is my first apartment ever and now I’m going to get evicted…. I owe the apartment $1000. My mom tried to help me pay rent but they didn’t want to accept her payment for half. They want a full amount of 1000 by Monday so I am just stuck.
Yesterday my electricity went out, when I got back home from school. I paid it with my credit card so it’s okay now. Not really because I still owe the electricity company some money too..
Except that I haven’t paid my credit card company anything at all for the past month so adding on the $100 that I paid for the electricity, I’m going to have credit issues later on, knowing that I can’t pay that off soon, not even slowly.
Not to mention my internet bill is overdue by 2 months. I’m just not going to pay it this month. It’s not important so I’ll just worry about that later, I guess.
Anyways, we’re also supposed to move out of these apartments and move into this other apartment we got approved for… Pro is that we would be getting help with rent from either my mother, or uncle on mother’s side, if we do bunk with him at the new place. Con is that the cost is way more so we are hoping that they do help and that the move will be good, rather than make our situation worst. What is stressing me out about it is that we have to pay the security deposit/move in fees which is adding up to what we already owe the apartments we live in now….

Please excuse this list of what exactly I need donations for… This is for me to calculate exactly what I need to pay off.
-May Rent: $1000
-Apartment move in: $2850
-Credit card: $426.51
-Checking account overdraft: $173.90
-Moneytree: approx $720
I need around $5,538.55 because, although I put myself in this situation, my unborn children don’t deserve this. They definitely didn’t ask for it. That amount is just enough or maybe almost enough to pay off what I need to pay off in order to get back to square one again. I’m usually the one with big goals and always imagined myself having the perfect job to even help my hard-working mom retire, but I’m the one asking her for help. I just can’t do this anymore and the fact that I need to pay at least rent before Monday the 13th makes matters even more stressful for me. I’m more stuck than a shoe stepping on gum on a pavement. More stuck than glue right now. Any type of help works and is very much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I accidentally put UK instead of USA below…. I’m already screwing up
I recently had a major medical emergency and have been behind on bills. I was not able to make my rent payment and am currently at risk of being evicted. I don’t have anywhere else to go and am in desperate need of quick funds in order to be able to pay rent. I have been extremely busy with school and work that I just haven’t had the time to think about this ahead of time. I work two jobs, one as a tutor for bilingual students and my second job as a bartender at a bar where I am constantly harassed but at least I make tips. Unfortunately even with these two jobs I just haven’t been able to meet my rent payment. I was recently hospitalized after I was hit by a drunk driver and that caused my savings account and budgeting to plummet. I have tried everything to save money and have even tried selling clothes and belongings but with the amount of bills that I have, nothing seems to be helping. I am also a full time student so it is hard to pick up extra shifts to make things work. I have tried just about everything and I am at my wits end. My financial stability has been on my mind so much that it has affected my mental health and has caused me to fall into a deep depression. There are days when I cant even get out of bed but I have to force myself otherwise I wont get paid. I have put my schoolwork to the side and have not been interacting with any of my friends. I have tried to ask for help but there doesn’t seem to be anyone in my life who is able to help me because they are all struggling financially as well. My dad recently got laid off from his job so I cant ask him for help and my mom is working just to keep her and my dad above water. I have no siblings and my friends are all struggling college students as well. I have exhausted every option but between all of my expenses, nothing seems viable. Please help in any way you can so that I can pay my rent and continue to go to school, I’m a pre-med by the way. Here is my paypal link.
Hi, I am writing because I am in dying need of assistance. I am located in ocean springs, MS and I have been going through trying times. I have totaled my car a few months ago and have been without a car for exactly nine months. I would catch a ride with a coworker every morning or i would sometimes Uber to work. I have no family here besides my little cousin that I had taken in because he was going through some hard times and I took him in, made sure he had a safe place to lay his head and push him to stay in school. Which now he is about to graduate from high school this month and will be going to college on a scholarship. It has been hard trying to get around without a car but I managed. I recently just lost my job working as a teller and I was so devastated but i also expected that because the energy at my workplace was very negative. My branch manager picked with me a lot. Nothing I did was ever good enough. I felt like i was walking on needles every time I came in to work. I would always pray before I went to work because it was draining me and bringing me into a state of depression. I just felt like the little black girl that didn’t belong there.so I was definitely Hurt and also worried about how I will manage to pay the bills. I am now on the verge of being evicted out of my apartment with no where to go. I’ve never imagined going through anything like this. I wouldn’t wish this feeling on anyone. Some days I worry about running out of the little food I do have left in my cabinets. We have been eating oatmeal for several weeks now. I try my hardest to do right by people and it just seems like nothing is going well for me. Even through all the things that I am going through, I still remain positive. I have been looking for jobs but have not been getting any calls or emails and it is really making me feel down and depressed. I’ve even went in person to talk to managers just to not get any feed back. It just seems like when I take ten steps forward I get knocked back down ten. I have nowhere to turn to, I am scared but I know where there is a will, there is a way. I have faith that things will get better in due time. I would really appreciate any donation, anything helps. Please and thank you
I never imagined it could happen to us. First and foremost, I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you in advance for stopping from your busy day and taking the time to read our story.
As I am sure many of us can agree, we never really stop to think that we are going to lose everything we have worked for in two short weeks. We don’t stop to think, “hey, this can happen to us.” But, it has, it did and we are living it now.
I am a responsible individual, who went to school, got his degree and followed the path for a successful life. My parents instilled in me from a young age the value and importance of hard work and the rewards that come from giving it all you got. I did well in school and graduated top of my class and valedictorian from high school. I graduated a year early and was able to attend a College Core Curriculum for the last two years of my High School career.
I took a break of six months to work and help my parents during a very difficult time financially. Then once I had helped with the situation, off to College I went. I started off at Los Angeles Community College and worked hard to earn my entrance to USC. When I completed my education I transferred to DeVry University where I added to my pocket an education in Computer Information Systems and Business Information Systems.
My first job was with Earthlink in Pasadena, CA, where I worked for 10 years as an entry-level support tech, senior level support tech, Lead Management Support tech and ultimately as Lead Network Administrator until my division moved out of the state of California.
For a short time, I worked as an independent contractor for the Children’s Court. Those five years were truly an experience seeing what children went through to get back to their parents or watching children being saved from their parents. I was fortunate to maintain the contract for five years.
After my Contract with the Children’s court ended I was approached by a law firm in Santa Monica that I had often worked with at the children’s court. They were always having system issues that I would help with from time to time. Blessed is the only thing I felt when they offered me a position as Director of Technology and I accepted. I worked with this firm from 1996-2017.
During this time I met and married my Husband. Having seen what children suffered during my past employment at the children’s court we adopted and raised a son. Our son filled our lives with joy and completed our family. Unfortunately, our son was taken away from us before he turned 18. The victim of a random shooting in Tujunga, CA. My husband and I were left with an empty hole of sadness. We didn’t know how to function or what to do. We attended grief counseling and managed the best way anyone could have lost their child.
Then a few years later my parents and sister were in a horrible auto accident that left me in a deep depression. I lost them all and the only thing that kept me afloat was the love and care of my husband who carried me through this horrible time. Sadly this was only 2 short years ago. I returned to work and kept giving my all.
In June of 2017, I was let go from my position with the law firm I worked for due to the firm separating and closing down. Internal challenges amongst partners led to the ultimate dissolution of the firm. I was able to get Unemployment benefits that kept us afloat. Then when those benefits ran out, we used our savings. Despite having almost emptied out our saving for the burial and care of my family that had passed. We found a way to survive until November of 2018.
But, as all things do, we did run out of money. My husband who was a makeup artist and I were attacked by a group of men while leaving the pride festival last year. Both my husband’s hands were broken. His primary tool for work. We have been struggling and just can’t seem to get ahead. Sadly now we are now 4-5 months behind on rent, car note, insurance, light, and gas. We are being evicted from our home of 20 years and don’t even have the money to put our items in storage. We will be attending our Eviction Court Case tomorrow and have no idea what we are going to do. We have been working with Social Services, but because we still have a home to live in, they can’t do much.
Thankfully, they were able to give my husband and me a monthly stipend for food and medical resources. I have searched for work high and low and I am told that I either have too much experience or too little. I am also learning that middle management is a thing of the past. We have no living family that can help us, nowhere to go and are just stuck in a really bad place. My husband can not work due to his hands, and we are just surviving on a thread. We have sold everything that we possibly can, just to keep clawing at survival.
We have so many wonderful memories of our child and family in this home. The Landlord has been very patient and has event told us that if we can pay the past due rent and 3 months in advance he would let us stay. The Department of Water and Power has given us one last extension before they cut us off. The list of past due bills constantly looming over us.
I know that there must be others out there in a far worst situation. Maybe I have to right to ask for help. But, for anyone out there that hears our plea. We want to get our stuff into storage and not end up in the streets. We have only a few days or weeks as we are not sure anymore. If you can help us, it would mean the world to us. I know that if we can just get up and out of this situation we can get back to where we were. Thank you for any donation you could make to help us make it out of this horrible life situation.

I have just received a notice that eviction papers are being filed. I am 42 years old, married and have one of my four children living at home. The last few years have been a true struggle for me, but I have been trying my best to stay afloat. I am a very strong Christian woman who has been trying to do this on my own. I am failing. My husband was hurt in a car accident several years ago and was left by doctors addicted to pain meds and left to deal alone. I tried to carry him and keep everything going. In the struggle, he ended up running to someone else for a long while. He is since cleaned up and home again. He is trying hard to get a job and help me again, it just hasn’t happened yet. I am currently working 2 jobs trying to do as much as possible. I have a garnishment on my full-time check that has taken so much that I have not been able to pay the rent in full and have fallen very behind. They have been so patient, but have given up on me. I had filed my taxes to get the refund and pay for everything. The IRS has kept my refund for a debt I didn’t know I owed and they will not tell me what it is. I called the tax advocates office for help and no one will return my calls. I went to the hope center and salvation army for help and because the amount is so high or because I gross too much I can’t get help. I don’t make enough to pay bills and buy groceries but make to much for welfare too. I am working 60+ hours a week but the bills have become insurmountable. In the meantime, I have the bills, my husband recovery, and now my oldest daughters fiance was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, and six weeks later at her 20-week ultrasound found the baby has a hole in her diaphragm and may not survive after birth. I don’t know that I could take the 3rd job for us to stay in our home. I just need someone to bring me to zero and let me go on from there. I honestly don’t know what else to do. I went searching for other resources and found this website. I don’t know if it’s real, I don’t know if there is really anyone there that can help me. I don’t want my daughter to be homeless with all the other things going on in our lives. She is 16 and just starting a job and makes such good grades and wants to go to college and be a psychologist. I just want what’s best for her and give her all the chances she is working for. I don’t know how to do that homeless, working all these hours and not have the money to be safe in a home or have the money to go somewhere else. I am praying with all that is in me that someone will read this and want to help us. I have gotten the rent up to 4000.00 behind and still have all the other bills and the garnishment that takes 600.00 to 800.00 of monthly pay that will last until Oct. I just can’t see the light. I tried to handle it all on my own and I have failed. So I am asking that if there is anyone out there that would be willing to help in any way. The property manager has not asked for the amount in full but a substantial payment to show me working to take care of it would help so much.
Hi, My name is Antonia. I’m posting on this site because I’m in desperate need for help paying my rent and a couple of bills (water/electric). I know there are a lot of people asking for help, and I feel like most of them are more deserving than myself. But I figure it doesn’t hurt to ask, as I’m kind of at the end of my rope, not sure what else to do. So here’s my story:
I started working as an Assistant Manager of a coffee shop setting up in the UAE I had first class training and absolutely loved my job, it was one of the best jobs I’ve ever had then I was used to fill in as the manager for 8 months. During this time I was told I’d get a bonus once a manager was hired.. As I was working 7 day weeks and never took a days holiday or sick day.
A week after finally hiring a store manager, we were all called to a meeting and told redundancies were going to be made. The next day I was called to a meeting and withing 4 days I was out. They only gave me 4 days notice and a week’s pay.
I never saw myself being in this position I have signed a lease on my dream flat in the city and life seemed to just be starting, and well now I’m not so sure.
Throughout April I have been trying to find odds and ends jobs, and in all my free time I’ve been applying to part-time and full-time positions in pretty much any place I could find a posting. I have been able to pay full rent for March yet, and now I owe April rent. And pretty soon, I’ll have to pay May rent too. That is, unless my landlord evicts me, which they can do if I can’t come up with the money for April and May.
I have gone to a fair few interviews, and follow ups, and even done a few trial shifts and am hoping something comes through soon. I am a hard worker and I know I can get through this if I can find a way to pay all my rent and bills for the month coming, I just need a little more time to get back on my feet. I really need to be able to come up with £2700 but I am hoping I can find a small job in the next weeks that will help me pay for a chunk of this.
So here I am, on this site. Desperate for someone to help me out. Anything will help! I’d also like to think that maybe I could try to repay you, or at least pass it forward when I’m back on my feet. If that’s an option for you, leave your name and contact/email and I can reach out. At the least I’d like to thank you.

My name is Stephanie Jackson, I’m married with 4 kids, we have a 10, 5, 4, 2 yr old. last year was a tough yr for my family and I, my husband lost his job and then 2 weeks later we found out his brother had passed away. My husband went down hill from there. it took me 5 months to pull him out of the dark hole he had fallen in. after that he started to look for work but nobody would work with him where we had one car and our daughter needed to be to school in the morning and we didn’t have the money to drive back an fourth to salt lake which was 30 mins away from us our rent was due so we got a title loan out on our car we had no choice either loose our place to live or loose our car. we lost our car. My husband then got a job his mom drove 3 hrs and dropped her car off for us to use and he found someone who would work with us. well that didn’t turn out to swell cause they stiffed us on his last paycheck. we thought everything was going good but we were wrong. to be honest with you we don’t know why but they just stopped calling him to go to work. Trenton had then found another job but it was to late our landlord wanted us out of there. we tried to talk to her but she said nope not doing it. We had to be out of our home i do believe it was April 8th 2019 we are now homeless and have no where to go Trent’s boss has been working really good with us an let him take a few weeks off so we can figure out where we can go. I feel like we are stuck between a rock and a hard wall cause in order to get money Trent needs to work but in order for him to go to work we have no where to go while he goes to work. I know this is a lot of money to ask of someone you don’t know but i feel like we have no other options the worse thing that can happen is no. Its going to cost us $8000.00 to get us into a place i know it sounds crazy but I’ve been looking at places to rent and i cant find anything under $1500.00 an they are asking for 1st and last months rent and a deposit which comes out to be $4500.00 just to get into a place but before you get into a place you have to put in an application which is anywhere from $20-$40 for just the application per adult and still after that you don’t even no if your going to get the place until the application has gone threw and if it don’t then your out $40-$80 still. Also my mother in law is wanting her car back and I had been approved for a loan to get a car but they said i need $3000.00 for a down payment. I understand that’s a lot of money to ask of someone who you have never met. but i promise you if you can do this one thing for my family and I, it might take us awhile to pay it back but i can promise you this we will do everything in our power to do so. and if you do this for my family an I it would truly save us before something else bad that may happen like loose each other because we have to where to go and my kids cant live out of a tent. my kids are everything to us and loosing them isn’t and option for us. Even if that means we swallowing our pride and asking a stranger for help. so please if you could we would be so thankful. even if you cant do the hole $8000.00 anything will

I was a single mother for 8 years , struggling. At the time I had a very patient and gracious landlord. That still didn’t help me from having my water and electricity cut off several times. There had been many time that I had to choose between those things and paying a sitter so that I could work. My son’s father never paid child support on any of his children and has not worked in 20 years ( he lives off his mother). I made just a little too much to qualify for financial help and didn’t want to lie to get it. Fast- forward a few years and I meet my husband a wonderful man and provider. He has done so much for my son and me. A year ago my husband lost his job and though he’s working some it doesn’t pay nearly what he was making. We’ve been struggling to get out of debt ever since. I’ve had to quit my regular job and take on part time work in retail(which pays minimum wage) due to health complications from lupus. I’m starting to get better after almost a year and I’m currently trying to get back into the healthcare field. I can’t wait. I loved my job as nursing assistant. Right now either debt we are in we rarely have enough food in the house and are on the verge of eviction and having our electricity cut off. With all of that being said my son’s birthday is next week. We do have a little help with bills. I am currently helping my mom take care of my step dad who has had a stroke. They uprooted their lives and moved here from California to help with childcare, so I could cut expenses (before I got married). When my husband came along naturally we needed a bigger place than my two bedroom duplex. So we found a house to rent. Then shortly after my husband lost his job. My parents help with their part, but are on a fixed income. My husband tries and even tries to drive Lyft on the side, but he’s also paying child support on two children. I just don’t want have everyone in this position. I’m scared that we will lose everything and that my parents will have nowhere to go. Any help would be appreciated,
Thank you. PayPal.me/smilemoreoften
I am asking for help right now because I’m about to lose my home I’ve gone to every place in my town to ask for help, wait i long lines only to get to the front and be turned away.
My husband works and works hard ,we were fine until the owner was killed and his daughter and son took over. They recently found out the daughter had been and still is stealing from the company, tried to sell it without the permission of her brother now that’s put it into probate court as she won’t accept the settlement and took it to court. My husband had a base pay with commission and bonuses now he only gets his base pay and that has thrown us into a tailspin with our bills. We pay them something every month so they know we are trying . I make and sell items such as home decor and jewelry out of our home, it helps but it has slowed down considerably.
Now my truck needs right front end redone, it makes a horrible metal on metal sound. And has to go to shop to be fixed. There just isn’t enough to pay everyone, pay everything ,and still put food in our home and fix my truck too. I’ve found another job however i can’t start it until the truck is fixed, it’s 45 minutes away from my home.
I’ve asked my family for help but we lost my mother two years ago on September 1, 2016 and my dad is still paying on accounts from when she was alive. I’m extremely stressed and worried that i won’t find help and we will be in the street neither of us have anywhere to go, my dad hasn’t got the room and will probably be moving south soon, then I’ll be back to square one.
I know you all hear the same stories over and over, and that everyone is trying to convince you to help them. I’d say that’s not what I’m trying to do but that would be a lie, i really do need help in a hurry. I hope that you can help me and fast as i am running out of time. Thank you all for taking the time to read this and possibly considering helping me.
And thank you for even taking the time to read my post. I want you to know, this is the first and only time I have ever done anything like this. I NEVER EVER ask anyone for help. This is very hard for me to do and discuss. I am a woman in her early fifties, divorced. My elderly parents live on a fixed income and do what they can to put even help put some food on my table. (I only eat once a day so that I can keep cost down). I work for my money and have never looked for and expect handouts.
I started working at the age of 11, first job was babysitting. My career has been in the advertising industry of which I love, but a volatile industry to be in, especially the creative side. (my area of expertise). During my lifetime I have been laid off too many times to count, due to loss of large agency account, budget cuts and in the end, our declining economy during certain years. I have bounced back in the past, but this past year has been the exception.
The reasons, I can only surmise to be my age, the economy and the growing trend of not hiring full-time, so that companies/agencies do not have to offer benefits. They use either part timers, freelancers (which I have been for 12 years) and as of late, interns.
I was working a freelance/contract until they cut me in March of 2018. I did get unemployment, which did help, but put me far behind in all my bills and rent. I ran out of that in November and the bills/rent and lack of health insurance, I fell farther and farther behind. I did get a bit of work in December, but since January I have had NO INCOME at all. I pound the pavement looking for work, in my field, but at this point, I look for anything. But employers see a professional woman applying for jobs that pay minimum wage and won’t hire, because they know she will leave as soon as she finds something that pays more and is in her field.
I have some people that will help financially here and there, if they can, with a few bucks ($20) so that I can buy groceries. Also, I did my brothers website, for his new company he just launched. He did give me what he could, but it is a start up. It helped with some food and a bill.
My back rent is up to $3100 and I am getting eviction notices. And May rent is coming up. That is another $1275, which will bring what is owed to $4375. I want to keep a roof over my head. That is most important to me.
My car payment is so behind, I think it is at the point it will be taken soon. I need it to get to jobs. I can get exacts but I do know it is behind over $2000.
Other bills that are way behind and are going to be shut off any day now, are: internet (bill is over $400 and will be shut off anytime now), which I need to find jobs, continue educating myself with software to stay current, to keep in touch with Former colleagues and those who can help me to find jobs. ie: LinkedIn. My cell phone (bill is over due about $200-300), which is the only way I can be contacted by phone, and is on my resume. My car insurance is $78 a month and comes out of my bank account automatically, but my bank account is now at (minus)-$111.40 with fees being applied with continued negative balance.
I don’t have health insurance and am on 3 medications I need to pay out of pocket. 2 of them are around $40 per month and the other is $150 per month. Going off them will cause a seizure. These medications are because of anxiety and depression, and as you can imagine, life has caused this. I am having major anxiety attacks and this is manifesting physical symptoms.(shaking, unable to concentrate, nausea..and so much more).
Besides the absolutes above, I owe doctors, who won’t see me now because I have an outstanding balances (one is $450)… I have major tax debt and leins!!! Some legal debt.
Again, this has been very hard for me to say to anyone (and I don’t) never mind put it here for strangers to read. It is embarrassing and I feel like a failure. So, if I were to put a dollar amount to it, $15,000 would catch me up with my rent and the bills (less tax, lawyers bills). I know this is a lot to ask.
I thank you for your consideration!
Hi, my name is Monica and yes, Im tired of being tired. I’m a single Mother and not by choice, their Father decided to choose drugs instead. But I forgive him. After we separated, I continued to thrive and I was doing very well. That is, until four years ago when my life seemed to just spiral out of control. To save space, I’ll list some of it. It started with my favorite cousin passing away in my arms on Thanksgiving eve, my daughter passed away in my arms three weeks later and right next to the Christmas tree. In the following year, I lost nine family members and friends; not including two pets. I was assaulted and had my teeth broken at the root. Someone broke into my car at the park and stole my last two pets. My son feel through a window and broke his teeth. I was in a bad car accident, now I have permanent spinal and internal problems. My Christmas presents were stolen on Christmas a year after my daughter and from a church. We went homeless and it goes on and on. I had a terrible event almost monthly for three years. Now it’s getting better. Thank God. I’m tired of suffering. We have a home, I can see my children becoming happy again and it feels good. But now, I’m facing eviction. I feel behind. I think I’m still depressed. I mean, sometimes I feel numb and empty. Is this the reason that I can’t snap out of this sand pit? I don’t know, but what I do know is that I can’t imagine the nightmare of going homeless. I’ve been there and do not want to go back. Since my teeth were broken, I can’t afford dental care. My mouth looks so gross right now. So I will so pics. I can’t believe I’m showing pics. Please if anyone can assist me and bring me some beautiful light, it will greatly appreciated. Besides the financial help, if you know of any other ways to improve my future.. Please share.. I want a happy life again. Just something to add. I’m a really happy person, sometimes I smile too much. One day my face was hurting and when I looked in the mirror.. I was frowning. Crazy, I don’t want to get used to that. If you need any other documents, please I’ll send them asap.
My name is Devin and I am currently a student in the College Station, TX area. I have been ahead on all of my bills in the past but I recently had to put my car in the shop. I am needing 400 dollars to pay off all of my bills. This would not be a problem if my job as a delivery driver at Papa Johns did not require me to have my car. I need the money today or I will go into more debt than I am already in. I have tried selling my most expensive items including this computer but have had no luck reaching the amount I need. If I do not reach this amount by the end of the day I will be facing eviction. I am not one to usually beg, but I am at my lowest state when it comes to finances. All I need is a helping hand and I will be quick to return the favor. I have asked friends and family but everyone I know is dealing with struggles of their own. I am on my last leg and I desperately need this money today. I have lived in College Station on my own for almost 2 years now and this is the first time I have had to ask for any help, I am a hard worker and I have already gotten another job. The downfall of that is I do not get paid for another 2 weeks and I can not get evicted. I have a girlfriend and a cat to house and I really do not want to end up on the streets. The littlest amount can help and put me where I need to be to get back ahead in life. I am seriously begging for someone to save me from going into the hole because I have tried to do nothing but good and help everyone who needs it. Lastly, I need this money so I can continue my schooling without having to reside on the streets or with a friend on an uncomfortable couch. I will do anything for this money and will help back if needed. This is my last resort and I really hope someone out there hears me. I need to get back ahead and take control back over my life. I promise that I will return this favor and be a good person, I just really need a healing hand at this very moment. Thank you
Hello, my name is Stacy, I’m a hardworking mom, I have a 7 year old and one on the way and I am desperately trying to avoid eviction.
How it started:
My husband and I have been struggling all our lives, we finally saved up enough money to get out of our bad situation and rent a small apartment for us and our 7 year old. This year we had worked hard to plan out our future and were going to use our income tax to finally get ahead.
The day our tax check went into the bank my husband got in a car accident. Our insurance company immediately put in a claim when we called to be towed and towed it to the garage. It was our only car, so we had to get a rental. At the rental company we found out that our insurance made a mistake and neglected to include rental car insurance- an employee oversight- but refused to pay regardless and we were stuck with the bill.
In the meantime, the garage kept delaying, going back and forth with the insurance company all the while we had to pay out of pocket for the rental car just to get to work. It took month to repair the car and in the end the insurance company refused to pay a portion of the damage, claiming it was preexisting which it wasn’t. Another expense.
In desperation we bought a cheap car and have been driving it around so we wouldn’t have to keep paying for the rental which was $700 a week.
The car situation has finally been resolved but we have nothing left. I was running about two weeks behind on our expenses and in the past, we have been able to pay our rent a little late – with a small late fee- but it was do-able. I was going to do that once again when suddenly yesterday our apartment manager said out of the blue that policy changed, and eviction would go to court on the 18th.
We have desperately tried to gather up enough money by today, selling what we can, picking up small jobs and with our paychecks have managed to get most of the money, but we are $400 short.
Family wont help, we have never asked them for anything and have given when we had, but no one has anything to spare. I hate asking for money and help but I have no choice now, we are going to be evicted for $400.
The rent is due tomorrow before they sock us another $500 to go to court.
We are desperately trying to raise the $400 to cover the rent, if there is any help out there, we could surely use a miracle right now.
I’ve made a paypal link if anyone could help:
I love working with computers. It’s my passion. Someday I hope to have a gainful career in IT. My position could be something as simple as a workstation technician or as high-level as a Network Systems Manager. However, without any formal certifications or scholastic accreditations, I’m finding it difficult to find work even as a warehouse associate or grocery store clerk.
Ever since I took time off work in September of 2018 due to a back injury, things have not gone well at all. My employer at the time would not allow me to take a leave of absence since I had not been with the company for 6 months yet (which means I was not eligible for FMLA). They suggested I resign my position and then reapply when I was better. I did so in October when I was ready to return to work, but they would not rehire me and did not give a reason why. I ended up applying at 9 other locations with the company, receiving interviews at 3, and never hearing from any of them again. This is when I sent out applications to practically every employer in Chicago.
When I am honest on my application or in person about not being able to find work, most employers don’t seem to want to contact me back. I even had one tell me I was “overqualified” for the position, so she canceled my interview. Another simply said, “We don’t even have an IT department, so this may not be a good fit for you.” Even though I had made it clear I was applying for an order-filler position, explaining to her that my passion was in IT may have been a mistake. I just want to be honest with people, but that seems to be hurting me more than it is helping.
I have not been able to afford rent since November. This means I am now behind almost 6 months. The only reason I have not been forcibly removed yet is that the building recently changed ownership and the new property managers were required to start the eviction process over again. I have done my best to use this time wisely and have been working freelance IT jobs to cover my utilities, phone, and internet bills, but it has never been enough to cover rent.
Last week I discovered a program in Chicago through the National Able Network, Inc. that will utilize what’s known as the WIAO (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act) which will cover all of my expenses to take a 16-week IT career lab in the heart of Chicago (ITCareerLab.org). 16 weeks certifies a participant for CCENT, CCNA, MCP, and MCSA, which is more than enough to start a strong career with. The program has a 93% completion rate with 96% of participants earning one or more certifications and 3/4 of unemployed participants finding careers during training or immediately after completion. The program assigns a career coach who helps with resumes, interviews, preparation, and anything else a prospective candidate can ask for… at absolutely NO COST to the participant. It is everything I could possibly ask for.
The course starts in April and will go until August. This means I will have to find part-time work before I start class and work as much as I can while I attend 20 hours of classes a week for 16 weeks. Until then, the apartment has me for $6,000. They will do everything they can to see that I am out as soon as possible. Since I am 41 years old and have no friends near me who can help, I am posting this plea in the hopes that someone out there can help me to stave off homelessness. I have had some great suggestions like finding lower rent housing and moving in with several others, but I have zero money to do this with and cannot do so while facing an eviction. That has to be taken care of before I can look for other housing.
I have a chance to do something for myself that will finally allow me to be a productive member of society in a way that will matter and in a field I love. Please help to make this a reality. I firmly believe in paying it forward and will happily help the next person who needs assistance when the time comes for me to be in a position to help others. It pains me to beg for help in a semi-anonymous fashion. But I do trust there are those out there who are as altruistic as I am.
I am in desperate need of some help with my rent.
I am a single mother of 2 gorgeous children a 12 year old girl and a 6 year old boy. I work 5-6 days a week often 10-12 hour shifts…
With my last check in December, since it included a little Christmas bonus I paid 3 months advance rent figuring taxes were right around the corner and with all the hours I work we would be able to get by… But life has decided to throw a few speed bumps into my life.
Last month I was informed my $470 monthly food stamps would be cut off,which also made my children ineligible for free school lunches. We were also informed that my place of employment has been bought out and will be closing down for remodeling within the next couple of months and they are not telling us if our jobs will be safe or if we will be able to collect unemployment when this happens.
To top this off one of my coworkers told me to check the hours on my paycheck only to find out I have not been receiving overtime for my 10-12 hour days because my company found a way to say any hours worked after midnight are a new day and do not count as a 12 hour shift..
I filed my taxes late jan and the irs accepted them jan 29th… I have yet to receive my refund the wheres my refund page said there was a delay then about a week later switched back to processing I called the IRS and was told mine was flagged for review and if I dont hear from them by the 1st to call back.
But now after having to pay cash for all our food and having to pay for school lunches. On top of already paying child care while im working bus money to get to and from work etc. I do not know how I am going to afford my rent I have about half of the $675 needed but do not know how I will have the rest in time.
I am doing the best I can with no financial support or help for either of my kids. I pay rent ahead when I can and work so many hours I hardly see my children.
I have never been in such a pinch. But between the food stamps being cut off and my taxes being so delayed its causing me to fall behind in all my bills. (I have been looking for a new job since we were told about the buyout, with no luck)
I am hanging my head in shame even having to ask for help but my children have to have a roof over their heads and food in their bellies (my daughter already had to go without a birthday feb 28th due to bills, she understands but it broke my heart? any help would be so much appreciated and we will be forever grateful as I said I already have half of what I need but every little bit helps and hopefully my taxes will arrive and I will be able to catch back up. Thank you for taking the time to read our story.
I was born about a hundred years ago in 1972 to world war two immigrants in Canada. I was the second last of a family of eight.
Life was quite a struggle for me. We starved on a regular basis. My parents were religious and once I had gotten old enough to become self aware, I realized that I was not and never could be. I was 10. Once I announced this, shit hit the fan. My mother began a campaign of trying to beat her god into me but no matter how many bruises and broken bones she gave, it wasn’t going to happen. All she ever succeeded in doing was causing me to hate her very much. The christian private school I was forced into became a nightmare for me. At the end of the sixth grade, I couldn’t take it any more and ran away. I was fortunate to have made some neighborhood friends and the parents of one took me in. Then I began working.
Went from one basic labour job to the next. Each paid just enough to stay alive. One day when I was 29, I had a random chance meeting with a Korean man. His job was to find Canadians to send to South Korea to teach English.
I took a chance and flew to SK. After a year of struggle, I met a lady and we fell in love and got married. Together we opened an English school. After 12 years there, we sold out and moved to Canada. We had been struggling with the marriage for years and after we moved, it fell apart and we got divorced. She got everything.
Not qualified for any work in Canada except the most basic labour jobs. Decided to take a chance and searched for English teacher work in China. Life was a struggle to live in the meantime. I had two credit cards and I maxed them out both before and after I found a job and moved here. Unfortunately to be an English teacher, you are supposed to have a degree in anything. I did not. The Chinese people are terrified of their government so I struggled to find work. Two years later things were starting to look up. Suddenly I was arrested. I was thrown into a prison and tortured for 35 days while they investigated me. Then they decided there was no point in charging me and they deported me to Canada.
I was in bad shape when I returned. Credit cards maxed out and no money saved meant my only option was to move in with my mother. Now, I’m being tortured here by her and collection agencies calling me for money. I’m trapped and slowly losing my mind. Also, I was told my mother will move to an end of life home soon as she is 83 and in poor health. My dad died ten years ago. This means I will be homeless and deeply in debt and I will have to find a piece of sidewlk in the big city to beg for change.
I have been investigating Brazil. I think I will like to go there and try for a third and final time. I am hoping that someone will be charitable enough to help me buy a ticket and survive the first few months there.

I have lived in the house where I grew up in all my life. My brother served me with vacate notice. I now have 30 days to move. The house is owned by all of my siblings. But my brother is the executor over the estate. I don’t have the money to move out in thirty days. He says that I breached the trust by not having continuous utilities at the house which is not true. I never thought my brother would do this to me..
I don’t have the finances to move..or a place to move to.
Please help me…

I’m married with 2 daughters and this nightmare of ours started about 1 year ago. My family and I was fine living in a 2 bedroom townhouse. I worked as an Independent Contractor from home and my husband worked as an Maintenance Tech within the apartments we lived in. Well a year ago he ended up severely hurting his back and had to be out of work for quite some time and ended up having surgery. Well this caused him to lose his job and he was the bread winner.
I tried working more hours, but barely covering all the expenses. Everything came to a head overtime and we starting getting behind on rent which we owe 3,000 dollars because it seemed like I robbing Peter to pay Paul. I just couldn’t have my little girls without food, lights, or water. I had to pay the utilities which seem to pop up with some type of cut off notice. We were very dependent on our taxes this year(2019) and we ended up owing, so we have received nothing back. We never been in a situation like this and what hurt the most our innocent little girls don’t deserve nothing like this. It breaks my heart that we’re on the urge of becoming evicted.
We’ve reached out to a lot of organizations ( Salvation Army, Catholic Charities, H.E.L.P), and different churches but no one has any funding. My landlord was generous enough to give us the time to wait for our taxes but only to find out that we owe. My husband tried to get disability and was denied twice already, but we still keep trying to see what’s going to happen. He can’t never get a job because he can’t stand for a long time or sit for longs periods of time. It’s just a sad situation, it’s frustrating and we in dire need of help. Please if there’s anyone out there that can help it will be greatly appreciated. I’m begging please help before it’s too late.
I’m not one for asking people for money but this is all I can do at the moment I lost my job and I’ve got an eviction notice to make everything better I just found out we have a baby on the way and as of right now I’m willing to do anything to make sure I can keep my family in a home I’ve been having a really hard time finding a job and it’s been really rough on us if anyone could help that would be great all I need is $1,000 to get us back on track please help us I appreciate everything anyone can do
Hi my name is Jill and I have to leave my traveling job because of my mom new ailment . She has been diagnosed with Sarcoidosis of the lungs. Many people don’t know about this disease it’s small tumors that attacks the organs. So, now my mom has to have an oxygen tank at home and take steroids for her treatment since there is no cure. I did’t know oxygen cost so much.
I have not been to work since January 23, this is why i’m back in my rent. My apartment complex has new owners and when I explained my situation with them she gave an extra week to come up with the money. I tried loans and asked family members but no one wants to help. They said they can’t spear that kind of money.
So, I went back to the office and asked if they would accept $500 for now she said no. It has to be a full payment online because they don’t take payments in the office. I really miss my former property manager. They would have worked with me. On January 22, 2019 I received the eviction notice I cried so much. But had to stay strong for my mom. The eviction notice stated I had 10 days vacate or evict!
The office called me yesterday and said I need to have February rent $1315.00 by 12 pm earlier today and I still don’t have it. The new month is in and I don’t have March rent either which is $1090.00. They added the court fee with my rent also,
Please help me God knows I really need the help. May God Bless us all!!!
$2231.00 because I have $500.00 to put with it. If not mom and I will be evicted by weekend.

First, I would like to thank you for visiting my page and considering me for your charitable offer. Now, onto the storytelling…
I moved to Chicago from my hometown of Lafayette, IN in May 2018. Since then, I’ve been doing my best to enjoy the city and make new friends. It started off great, I was working at a restaurant as a hostess and making plans to attend one of Chicago’s awesome private universities. Financial hardship hit me at a point in August, so I picked up a second job. I was clocking 75+ hours a week, working overtime whenever possible. I was pulling in loads of money and dig myself out of a hole. In the midst of all this, I also met the sweetest boy ever and began dating him.
However, in October my new beau asked a seemingly harmless question, for me to co-sign a loan for him. He promised to make payments on time, and I trusted him, only to later find out I shouldn’t have. Instead of adding me as a co-signer he signed the loan IN MY NAME which then lead to them charging my account and unfortunately sending it into overdraft. From there it was a complex mess of things (losing one of my jobs, unable to pull my account out of the red, having to sell personal belongings) that lead me to where I am now.
I missed rent payment the month of January and February. My landlords are very sweet and understanding, but only to a point. They forgave the Jan. charges, so I am only responsible for Feb. I am also in legal battle with my EX-boyfriend. I’m not asking for help with that. I’m only asking to help pay the $1750 I owe in rent so that I can pay next month and breathe easy.
I came here because I am too financially sound to apply for any government aid, and my family cannot help at all.
Thank you for reading, and I hope to pay this back somehow to the world in some way. Blessings!
I Am going to be homeless. I had a good life, I’ve worked since the day I was 16 years old. I worked in fast food and always had money to provide for myself. I turned 18 and bought a car. I moved out into my own apartment and that is when it all started. I had a roommate and he made nice money. We lived in a two bedroom two bathroom for $800 a month. Life was great until he started doing drugs and I had to kick him out. Left me with all the bills by myself. I worked long hard hours and made it barely. I had another girl I went to high school with move in and she never paid her full amount of bills which led to me getting behind in payments . She ended up leaving and supposedly is supposed to pay rent monthly but never does. I am going to school full time during the week and I work at a nursing home for little pay. It is hard to take care of this apartment alone. I pay almost $2000 in bills a month…. Yesterday I received an eviction notice and I fell apart. I have no family members that can help me and my taxes I ended up owing and not getting anything back. I have to pay $1000 and I get paid Friday but only $700 maybe $800 if I don’t get the other $300 I will be homeless with no where to go! My life is falling apart. I moved into this apartment with help and now I’m doing it on my own and I’m struggling to go to college full time and still work enough hours to pay my bills. My parents don’t have room for me and I’m a mess. I’ve always been able to take care of myself and lately I can’t even pay rent . It’s scary, my car could be taken, i don’t have a lot of food, and I could be homeless.
I am not the type of person to complain about my life or the things that have happened. I am generally very positive and I am a good person. I help people often and go out of my way for people. I have unfortunately been dealt a very bad hand of cards in the last year.
I have been supporting myself since I was 16. I grew up with my dad who made little money. He did everything he could for me. He passed away very suddenly this year and has left me alone and devastated. I miss him every second. Shortly after my father passed, I got laid off my job. I have worked so hard to find a new one. I’m now waitressing at 2 places and working odd jobs but I still just can’t make ends meet.
I am in a lot of debt. I have over $100,000 in student loan debt. In addition to that, I had to have an emergency back surgery in 2014 that I put on my credit card. I have about $10,000 in credit card bills still that I have been trying to pay off. I can’t even pay my rent right now and I am genuinely freaking out. I really really need help.
I am truly not one to beg for help or ask for money but I’m desperate. I’m working 7 days a week and I can’t catch up on my bills. I truly believe in karma and I’m just hoping someone helps me out when I need it most. I promise I will pay it forward when I am able. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my story.
My name is cody And I’m a 31-year-old male living in Texas. This is the first time in my life I’ve ever had to do something like this something where I have never thought that I’d have to do before I come out and ask somebody else that I Do you not know how to help me but I guess desperate times call for desperate measures. My financial she started a roughly about two years ago when I had made the decision to move to Texas from Oregon to continue the last two years of my education and graduate And I had made that journey with the person that I thought that I was going to marry. When we had left Oregon it was very exciting as we thought launched our new journey Into a world that we both did not know. It was then quickly after the things fell apart and financial bills started piling up I was working two jobs my ex wasn’t able to find a job providing enough in order to help we quickly started a fight as things started to pile up and we lost our true happiness of what we once were. It was about six months later that I received a text message that my ex was leaving me for someone else moving away to LA to live with someone that he had found to make him happy. It was at that moment that I thought my world falling down around me as I was left here to take on everything myself. In that same week I received a phone call at about 330 in the morning that my mother had coded in her sleep and had to be revived later we had found out that she had three strokes and a brain Aneurysm they had to be surgically removed in which we were warned that she possibly could develop Alzheimer’s after the surgery. We have decided to go forward with it after the surgery my mother has no longer been herself living here so far away from my friends my family, and those who matter most to me I sat and watched my mom checked away. In the same two years my father has also developed stage four lung cancer in which he won’t tell anyone in the family how much longer because he doesn’t want to take the light off our Mother. I have also been sued they may ask for money in which my ex felt that he was entitled to I have lost my job due to attendance from stress and crying randomly at work, my car has been repaired and I have last been left completely financially strapped. Just when I thought things were getting better and I finally got a job that was paying me well and doing well lo and behold as I was first starting to get back into normal stage again I get served with a large bill that my ex wanted more money. I have also been sued for money in which my ex felt that he was entitled to I have lost my job due to attendance from stress and crying randomly at work, my car has been reposessed and I have last been left completely financially strapped. Just when I thought things were getting better and I finally got a job that was paying me well and doing well lo and behold as I was first starting to get back into normal stage again I get served the large bill that my ex wanted more money And everything was taken once again. My sister has recently fallen off as well and my stepdad has gone out of control with his diabetes, And I’ve had to financially help my family as well which has dropped me. I have seen many counselors trying to gain Myself Happiness back again.
Has everything falls down around me I sit here writing this email begging anyone for help just this one time to help me with my rent so that I can stay afloat. There are many other things that occurred over the last two years they go very into detail I cannot sit here enough and thank whoever helps me more than anything in this world. Please I’m begging you!
I’ve always been the sturdy person who offers support and encouragement whenever needed in all aspects of living. Then I had my son. I continued to maintain that role and over time everything started to break. I continued to providing emotional and financial support to my siblings and their children. I let my family convince me that I was supposed to become self-sacrificial. I place everyone’s needs before my own. This lead to me over drafting on my checking accounts, and overspending during family functions in an effort to bring joy. I reasoned that the universe would find a way for my son and me as long as I kept everyone happy. The insane thing is that before my son, I did not reason this way. Even when I was being a rock for others, I did not lose sight of my priorities. The reason that I allowed it to happen after the birth of my son, I needed the help of my family. I needed my son to exist in peace. If I could keep our environment happy, then so would he. In addition to trying to maintain peace, I was full of pride. When I had my son I became more vulnerable and developed a lot of self-doubt. I could not let anyone see this, so I masked it with the sturdy as a rock mentality. This was a huge mistake because I allowed my loved ones to have great expectations of me. Now that I have started to share my truth, I am called a liar and a deceiver. In spite of the previous eviction that was filed on me, no one wants to believe that I am unable to be the person I started out as. It’s heartbreaking, and has caused a lot of stress.
I placed my real priorities; that is, to myself and to my son on the back burner. Now I’m facing homelessness. I have broken. After many weeks of crying, trying to figure out how and why, I came to the realization that I spread myself way too thin, and the result is failure. Even though I have accepted accountability for the way I have moved through life these past two years, it doesn’t hurt any less to know that I have let my son down and also myself.
I have started praying again and that helps with my spirit. I have also created a plan/budget for my finances. I would be able to implement this plan if I receive help with rent. I am currently facing an eviction. Helping me pay rent would allow me to reset my finances and maintain my budget. I am also talking to my minister, who is helping me to rediscover my confidence so that I do not end up in this situation again. I humbly ask for any help in obtaining $1207.17 for past due rent.
Hello my name is Jayla I’m 24 years old. I’m currently in a bad situation with money and having nowhere to live. I live with my grandma and my mom occasionally when she’s not at her boyfriends. So much has been going on with my grandma and her health back in November she had her lung removed because of cancer. My mom has a drinking problem and in no way am I trying to bash her but it’s really hard on all of us. So our lease for this house is up and it’s been over a month that it’s been up. We are on HUD. We had a ruined carpet upstairs from our dog and the landlord has had a leaking ceiling and electrical problems so the guy who does our HUD said he won’t pass this place again until everything is fixed. Now that was a month ago. I’m not sure what the HUD guy has been doing but every time we call or even go to the office he is never available. We tried contacting other people to see if our voucher is good but we always get told to talk to the HUD guy. Like I said the landlord had stuff to fix so he started to do the ceiling but since we have not been able to get a hold of anyone he started to get impatient and been asking my grandma for the full months rent which she only gets paid once a month but either way with everything going on with my grandmas health and my mother we decided to all split up because my grandma does not need to worry about all this while she’s still trying to recover and her she’s been having heart problems too. My mom and grandma receive a monthly check and my mom lives with her boyfriend basically even though all of her stuff is here. My grandma wants to go to a place with cheap rent for elders which I think she should but now for me I have no where to go and even if anyone does donate I still need a job to show proof of income for whichever place I can get. I been trying to find one but the town I live in doesn’t have too many options of jobs you have to go out of town for everything. I have no I literally have nothing which is my own fault I been doing through depression for the past four years so I completely gave up with working and pushing towards my goals I been doing much better for the past 3 months trying to stay positive and keep going I really have to right now but if anyone decides to donate I want to give the money back once I am on my feet so if you do donate PLEASE send me an email saying your paypal link/name and the amount you sent to me/ I’m not sure how this site works so I don’t know if you can donate anomalously or not but thank you so much to everyone even if you don’t donate I appreciate you reading this. God bless everyone. M

My name is Danielle and I am a 35 year old Midwest loving women. I have been a able body hard working person all my life. I had my first child,a daughter in 2016 and named her Blessing. I have worked very hard to provide for her and give her the best quality of life I can. I have had job after job in the last 2 years but finally thought I I the perfect one. It paid me weekly, and once hired I’d receive free health benefits. I was so happy I felt I’d finally found a position I could provide her a life. I went thru a temp service and worked my schedule shift with no absences, late calls, or write ups and in January, after 6 months was offered a permanent position. I was getting hired in. And in that same conversation seconds later my heart dropped and everything shattered. I was getting moved to 2nd shift 7pm to 7am. This might not seem like a huge deal but it was for me. I forget to tell you, I am a ward of the state. My own parents didn’t or couldn’t take care of me. So at 5 I was placed in foster care. With that being said going to 2nd shift working those hours I had no one to watch my daughter. I don’t have family and my foster family all recently moved to California just last summer. So I had to decline the positing and was let go a week later. I am now stuck with a eviction notice, utility bills, and no food for my daughter. I have been to our local dhs office and can’t get assistance because I don’t have a job right now. But I am looking and will find one, but I won’t make enough money to cover all my bills. I have contacted the irs and ask for a expedited tax refund instead of waiting for the normal 21 days. Still haven’t received a decision. I just need help, assistance, and a blessing from anyone who can understand my situation. I have never been evicted or been so scared of losing my child, because i might have to go to a shelter. Asking for help is even hard for me to do because I have always been a independent person, a person that always figures out my problems. But today this day I am putting my pride aside, I am coming as a humble American and asking for help from you. Anything is everything.
Me and my family are three months behind on rent and need to come up with 750 dollars or will be evicted. My family is very broken and needs your help. My mother and step father use the money for bills, food, and barely have enough to pay the landlord, plus they’re trying to send my youngest brother to college. My job at the movie theater doesn’t pay as much either. I would like your help. Please send as much or as little as you can to my PayPal account. We need it by the beginning of March. Whatever you can give will help out a lot.
I hope that all of you people can reach deep into your hearts to help us out. If you can, we won’t have to worry about where we could live. So, remember, we could get evicted by the beginning of March. So you have till then to donate whatever you can. It could be one, ten, or even hundred dollars a day.
Me and my family are counting on you. We deserve this donation because we are good people and never think of ourselves. We’ve been struggling to get by for a long time, and now, your donation could make our troubles fade away for a long time. With our rent paid off, it’ll give us more time to figure out about food, bills, and where to send my brother to school. This will be life changing for us.
After donation period passes, I’ll give whatever money you donated to my family so they can pay off our landlord. I know there are some good people out there who are willing to help out. This is your chance to show society that we’re not barbaric monsters. That we are kind and friendly. So please send your donatins to PayPal.Me/bwm1013
I came from NOTHING, and grew a business to where my husband and children and of course myself, had EVERYTHING we could ever dream of. In 2016, we lost it ALL. Our business was shut down (a competitor undercut us and even though we tried to renegotiate with our clients, they decided to stay with the competitor). We lost our house, our cars, exhausted our 401k. We filed bankruptcy. We sold everything else that anyone was willing to buy. This floated us along during our job search. We both gained employment (finally!) and were just barely making ends meet, and ended up on food stamps, which somehow, for whatever reason, we no longer qualify for. My husband lost his job in October, and has not been able to find ANY work. It is embarrassing starting over at almost 50 years of age, and ageism in the job market is a REAL THING. Although my salary is $39k, after deductions, I only bring home $30k. We are three (3) month’s behind in our rent ($1,500/mo) and I am certain the eviction process has already begun, and our bills are also behind. We are in serious trouble. One of our dogs became so ill, we had to put it down because we couldn’t afford the vet – and we put her down the “old fashioned way”; something I wouldn’t wish on ANYONE to have to do. We also live on a farm; our animals are suffering. Trust me, we have tried to sell or re-home them, but without any luck. I have horses that need farrier work and feed. I have a mini horse that is pregnant. We live in a rural town in a small county, and the jobs are few and pay very VERY little. My husband was commuting 200 miles round-trip every day for his last job. We don’t have any family, and our friends have pretty much abandoned us (you have to “pay to play”, as the saying goes…. fair-weather friends, I guess). Our house and water is heated by propane, which we have not been able to have filled for two months. I feel such an immense amount of pity for my children. I had to keep a child home from school because they had a field trip and I had to choose between $5 for the field trip, or $5 for gas to get to work. I don’t even want to go into what Christmas was like. It was pitiful.
I never thought it would come to me begging for money from strangers on the internet, yet here I am. I am praying that someone will have mercy on ALL OF US that are posting on this site. We need help DESPERATELY. We REALLY need a job for my husband that pays a living wage… but in the meantime, any financial assistance would truly be a blessing. I’m attaching a photo of our last bank account’s balance as of this morning. It is always going into the negative. I hate living like this. Thank you for your consideration.
I am 41 years of age and dependent on social security disability for income. I was in 3 accidents or fall events that have caused my disability in my teens and early 20s. As I am getting older the problems I am having are getting worse and I fear that walking a distance of more then a football fields length is possible in the near future. I can not drive or work because of nerve issues affecting my hand, back and legs. The Government shut down has been happening my disability had stopped due to a paper work mistake. While I have already taken care of the paperwork issue payments will not resume until the beginning of March. In the mean time because I have had no income in February I am now facing eviction from a landlord that will not work with me and facing having other utilities cut off as well. I have tried local churches or organizations and government agencies that assist with such issues but all are telling me that funding is used for this month or they have not received funding for this month because of the shut down. It was suggested to myself I would need to go stay in a shelter and start over again once disability starts paying again. This is not a viable option as I have mental health issues and it would be a bad environment for my situation. In addition to the physical problems the mental issues include panic attacks, anxiety, depression I am asking for this assistance so I can have food in the refrigerator, keep utilities turned on, and a roof over my head. The total amount I would need to make it through to March and be caught up is $1500. For some this is a lot of money but I am a believer in the saying many hands make light work. I did not want to have to join a site to ask complete strangers for assistance as I am sure you have needs in your life to meet as well, however, I have reached the point where I am desperate and need help from anyone that cares to not see someone living on the street in the winter.
If you can assist me or spend the time to read this and refer it to someone else I want to thank you very much for doing so
Don’t know where else to turn. Landlord says if we don’t have money by Friday it will be our last week here. Really just need like a $1,000 to turn things around for us and it would truly be life changing. Need money for dog food and money to fix our water heater. Been showering with cold water for over a month. Really embarrassed to be posting on here and hope nobody I know see this but I don’t know where else to go. Getting very desperate for food and trying to avoid this black abyss of emotions if we do get kicked out. I’m just sad. No matter how hard we work there’s always something to pay. There’s 3 of us and my 3 year old puppy who could really use any help given our way. Anything helps. Would really like to buy some nail clippers and trimmed for my dog. I’m feel so sad typing this out but can’t turn anywhere else. Tired of seeing my mom cry. I just wanna provide for here. We have electric, internet, water, rent, car payment, insurance, and general day to day needs we just can’t ever get ahead of. We feel like there’s no return. I’m putting this out there for some really kinda souls to hopefully see and change my life. It’s crazy how much $1,000 could really do for us. Would give us the ability to catch up on bills and stop having so much stress and afraid to wake up every day or seeing the 1st of the month is coming around the corner. If anyone is reading this thank you for taking your time to even read this. Anyone who can send anything you are a true saint and a thank you would never be enough. I’m 27 with a younger brother and a single mom. I never noticed how hard life would be without dad, emotionally and financially. Times are so tough right now and having another income has always put us behind even with everyone working it’s hard to maintain even a decently poor lifestyle. I’m over it and would just like to have even a slim chance of being ahead on a bill and seeing my mom happy which is the most important thing in this world to me right now. Anything helps us in our journey. I really appreciate you taking time to read this and if any money is sent I can’t thank you enough. Thank you. Take care.
