Hello my name is Arlene I 47 and a single mom of 4. I am getting evicted from my apartment and I really don’t want to lose this place, I am fighting to keep it because it’s close to my daughter school.

Hello, I’m Evan. I work two jobs; animal control officer, and construction worker. I make about minimum wage where I am, and I work so long, in hard conditions. I dont mind working, but working is hard when you’re hungry, and stressed about how you’re going to pay your bills. Recently, my apartment manager gave me an eviction notice, after I had asked her if I could pay the day after rent is due. I don’t ask much, but I really need at leash $650. My dog, Fjorn, and kitty cat, kitty would like to keep the roof above their heads, and food in their dishes. I can barely feed myself. This poverty started about a year ago. I was deployed to Afghanistan some time ago, and came back a couple of years after. I was honorably discharged, but couldn’t find a job for the life of me. I ended up finding a decent job, and had to relocate, and my wife of 10 years decided she wanted to part ways. I had a young son to care for alone, while working in a late night setting. He’s out of the house now, residing with his mother. Rent is 650 and cheapest in my town. I ask for just this one help. Thank you all so much for taking the time to read this, and I hope you all have a great day.
Thanks for taking time to read this post.
This is not a platform my husband or I would normally turn to for help, but given our dire financial situation, we feel this may be our only hope to prevent us from losing our home. My husband is a disabled vet, deployed twice to Afghanistan, and accumulated numerous injuries and illnesses from his military career. Because of all of his injuries, he filed for VA disability after returning from his last deployment. While waiting to hear from the VA, my husband has had to cut back on his work hours due to physical pain of his injuries. Any help from the VA will supplement our income, but until that happens we are trying to get by with my income and his part time income. The last 3 years have been rough to say the least, taking care of our kids, 1 who sees a child psychologist for autistic tendencies, trying to keep up with expenses while trying to save for unexpected situations. After 3 years of waiting we are at the end of our rope. We are currently in the process of getting evicted from our home, along with the possibility of losing our vehicles. Family and friends have helped in every way they can, and ironically his VA claim will be decided soon, but any help from that will come too late to save our home and cars. School will begin soon and we do not even have enough money to purchase supplies and uniforms; I am almost reluctant to try to get them, not knowing if we will still have our home. We have always believed in helping others, even if we had to go without. The positive karma will always come back to you. Hopefully this will be our positive karma. We are not asking for a lot, just enough that our kids will not have to worry about where they will lay their heads at night.

My name Rae. I’m actually asking on behalf of my father. My father is a strong man but he needs some assistance. My partner and I had gone to visit him for vacation. On the second day of our visit my father got a devastating phone call. One of his best friends and fellow firefighters had a heart attack and passed away. My father had cleared with his captain that he was good to attend the funeral and take the day off. The day after the funeral my father arrives at work to find a police officer standing outside staring at him. His chief arrives and explains that my father has two choices. To resign or be terminated. All of this because he “inconvenienced” one of his coworkers. (who also knew of the situation and agreed to cover my dads shift.) My father chose to resign because he did not want to make the matter worse. We recently found out he could have sued for wrongful termination if he had chosen to be terminated but it is too late now. My father has now lost custody of my youngest sister, has 30 days to leave his home, at risk of having his car repossessed and is struggling to find a reason to wake up in the morning. I’m genuinely afraid he is going to lose the fight inside of him and that he is going to give up. He has saved countless lives and I just want to help save his. He has brought me so far in life and he deserves to stay on the right path. If you understand or have been in this position, anything would help. Thank you.
I am £500 away from a deposit on an apartment that I just will not get fast enough from my job. I am struggling to live with my parents because of my father and I could really use some help. The £500 would help me get away from the life I am living because I just can’t do it myself. I am struggling to get by and I do not want to end up homeless. My local council cannot help me, I have already tried and staying in my current house with my parents is debilitating and I will suffer greatly. I hate that I am doing this but I would really appreciate a kind heart helping me. A new apartment would mean that I could achieve better in my life and my father will just not allow it. I do not want to end up in debt therefor I do not want to take out a loan, and I could not ask friends and family for that money because they are just as poor as I am however if I stay with my father I fear that I will do something to myself in which I regret. Someone with a kind heart please help me, even £100 will help greatly and will get me one step closer to a life of which I am proud to live. My father is a danger to everyone around him, which is why my mother wants me to leave as soon as I can and as do I. I would like to put a restraining order on him however I cannot if I am living in the same house. Social services in my town is corrupt, and they will not take me away from my situation due to not being young enough and having a job, however I am only a waitress and do not earn enough money to cover my deposit. My town is small and there are no jobs so I wish to move to the town over in hopes of finding a better job that is able so support me better so I can finally live a life. My council will not help me, they say that because he has not physically hurt me they cannot put me in emergency housing, however my father is manipulative and violent in many other ways. He is a diagnosed Psychotic who refuses to take any kind of medicine because he feels that he is not sick but he is, and i can no longer be in the firing line of his emotional and mental abuse. Someone, anyone, please help me. https://paypal.me/kierab115
I’m about to be evicted this weekend and I’m looking for any kind of financial assistance anyone is willing to give me so that I can pay the two months of rent that are currently due. Every little bit helps.
I’m 30 years old, have two small dogs, one of whom is a senior and was recently diagnosed with Cushing’s, and I’m struggling to find FT work after I lost my job in April. I’m cleaning houses right now while I look for something more stable.
I’ve struggled with depression and anxiety my entire life and I’ve self-harmed since the age of 8. I was diagnosed with PTSD and Borderline Personality Disorder, both stemming from childhood traumas, about 8 years ago and I’ve been doing my best to be a successful human being. I recently went through about 9 months of severe depression during which I lost my job. I wasn’t accepted into grad school and I attempted suicide and was hospitalized for a little over a week. I’ve been trying to make ends meet ever since then and it’s just been really difficult.
I just need a little human kindness right now.
I need help please to pay rent and my electric bill. I am 68 years old.
My wife is working part time since I am disable. Up until four months ago, we only had to pay $700 for rent and no utilities. Our place is a very small one bedroom which we have lived for 10 years.
My wife is Vietnamese and has an elderly mother who has been living with her son, my wife’s brother.
One day in December, the brother informed my wife that he is moving to Colorado and is selling the house. According to him, it is up to my wife to take care of their mother now and his responsibility is done with.
I need to tell you the background of this house so that you can understand. This house was bought by my wife’s parents in the 80’s and the mother had put down $50,000 for it. The parents put the son on the deed as a cosigner. My wife was only 19 years old at the time and still in school. Her brother was 26 and working.
They made an arrangement with him since they trusted him. He was going to pay for the mortgage and they carry everything else. They paid for food, clothing, all bills.
This went on until my wife’s father passed away. The brother tricked the mother into signing things over to him and he completely took over. After he took the house from his mother, he charged her rent and started a feud with my wife.
Life was tough for everybody but my wife made it worked for us until now. In December, seeing how distraught her mother is, my wife took all our savings together and rented a house for all three of us. We had a side business to keep us going. However, within the past few months, our business is struggling and we can not pay our landlord along with our electric bill. I am 68 years old and my mother in law is 83. My wife is 53 trying her best so we won’t be evicted. Our landlord is not going to sit there quietly. Our 30 day notice is coming to an end and we have no money to give her. Please help us anyone.
Hi My name is Kevin. A little about my family: I am 34 years old and have struggled since I was 4 with a rare osteo disease called Spondometaphyseal dysplasia which cause severe deteriation in my joints and bones and have struggled to stay working (I have consistently worked since age 16). My Wife is 30 and has had Type 1 diabetes since age 7 and can not work full time as she has other health issues as well that cause extreme exhaustion plus we have 3 kids she cares for. I have a 7 year old daughter and a 4 year old daughter in perfect health but unfortunately I passed on my disease to my son who is 3. we have been struggling to keep up with the piling up medical and medication costs including braces, special riser shoes for my son, joint procedures, eviction proceedings and more the list goes on. I have a stable job but have been drowning by late fees and past due bills. My goal is to acquire a loan or grant of $5000.00 I can pay back in the near future (1-2 years or less depending on current budget) unfortunately I don’t have great credit so banks and loan stores will not loan me the money at the moment and we don’t qualify for assistance because they say I make too much (48000/year for family of 5). I am literally at anyones mercy who is willing and able to help us. Thank you for at least reading my story.
Hello I am a single mother. I have recently had a baby unexpectedly. I found out when I was 5 months pregnant due to being on birth control and attributing abnormal periods as a side effect to that. My job makes us use our vacation time for four of the 6 weeks of our maternity leave before they give us any short term disability pay which is less than half of our normal pay after taxes. Unfortunately for me I have not accumulated any vacation time due to taking off throughout the year when my other older child has been sick or has not had a babysitter for the week. That being the case I have fallen behind on numerous bills My rent being the major one. Originally the father of my child who I have known and been with for about five years agreed to help out until the baby came and he decided that he “didn’t want to be a family man anymore” and abandoned me with a newborn baby and no way to cover the expenses we were splitting. I am literally begging for any and all help to keep myself and my newborn off of the streets. I am somewhat embarrassed to say that I am extremely desperate and have pretty much exhausted all my options. I am open to answer anymore questions anyone may have but please have it in your heart to help out my self and my little family. My paypal is: paypal.me/itzmebre
I am 68 years old now and worked since I was fifteen. I have so far survived breast cancer, and multitudes of surgeries. I retired at 62 after my knee replacement. None of this was as painful as living 47 years with an alcoholic husband who now has dementia and schizophrenia . He has been living in a nursing home almost two years and last week I signed for hospice to assist him. I also care for my adult 35 year old son who has Asperger’s, Social anxiety disorder and OCD.
I have never asked for help for myself only my husband and my son who both have received government assistance, but I only get my social security. Because of medical bills and repairs of our useless car, I am now unable to pay my bills. I am behind in rent and utilities and because I made a wrong decision and tried to fix things payday loans have taken my check before I can pay bills.
I don’t want to be another sob story, I just want to be caught up and have a decent used car, as my husband ruined this one with putting oil in the break lines, the mechanics charged $59.95 to tell me it would be more than $4,500 to fix it. I just need a car to get to my doctors and store nothing pretty. I don’t mind eating hamburger and tuna helper I am use to it. It doesn’t matter. It would be nice to sleep more than a few hours without fear ofbeing evicted.
I don’t want my son and myself to be homeless after I worked all those
years, hopefully not for nothing.
I pray you can help me as my credit is ruined and no one will loan me money. I have pawned everything of value, this is my last resort.
Hi my name is Wendi Rafferty. I’m 42 years old. I have a 13 year old daughter and I’m a single mom. We live in Dolan Springs Arizona and I recently lost my job due to severe bullying by fellow employees and upper management to where my anxiety level was so high everyday I was afraid to go to work. I tried to resolve the issues following chain of command which was really hard because a lot of people on the chain of commands where are people that I had been bullied by. I have been looking for work constantly everyday filling out applications online and finally found a job. I live 45 miles out of town and on my first day of orientation, on my way to work, my truck overheated which made me lat. I had notified them but when I had actually got to the facility they told me that I needed a reliable vehicle and to be there on time and they fired me on the spot. I have not been able to find anything yet since. I finally got my car fixed through a friend but my landlord stated that if I didn’t have rent by Tuesday, that we were going to get an eviction notice since out rent is due on the 1st of each month of $650. Our internet has already been shut off, and I have already gotten my second extension on my water bill, and my electricity is now do as well. I have no family that lives in the state of Arizona and no one else out here to help us. My family has helped us as much as they can from where they are. we have no money and nowhere to go if we get evicted. please help. I know that now that I have a running vehicle I will be able to find work but I just need the assistance for this month by tomorrow so we can avoid an eviction notice and be out on the street. Thank you so much and God bless you guys for all that you do.
Hi, my name is Michelle. In the beginning of the year I got really sick with a couple large kidney stones getting stuck and needing surgical intervention. 4 kidney stents and 5 surgeries later I was well enough to go back to work. In total i was out exactly 3 months. I did get evicted from the house i was renting and I was 3 surgeries in a 2 to go. I managed to find an apartment with a cheap move in, so i took kust what i needed there and had everything else in storage. I was too sick to really do anything. I had some comforters and pillows i brought there and slept on the floor. About 3 weeks of living there I realized that i was getting eaten alive by bedbugs. The complex treated 3 times and still infested. I did move out and had to throw away everything that was in the apartment. I moved in to a weekly stay hotel which to my surprise is going well, however I have been trying to catch up and keep up with the bills. Car payment, insurance, rent, gas ,food phone, etc. I am 600 dollar’s late on my rent. I have till Wed 7/18/18 to pay it. I will be living in my car in Az in the heat if not paid. The 600 dollars will free me up to stay on top of things. Finally… I do have family, however we live in a paycheck to paycheck world and they are unable to help. This is my last option I have in hopes to stay on my feet. Anyone reading this I appriciate you taking the time to read this and possibly make a donation. Thank you again, Michelle
I should start off by saying, I am NOT a single mother, a college student paying student loans, a sibling raising money to help a family member pay for medical bills due to an unfortunate illness…. or any other detrimental reason that most people require help for. I am a mother of three, married (for the first and only time) to a man who works in law enforcement. To that most may think “law enforcement? Well what could you possibly need our money for?” But before any judgement is passed on what kind of money we “should” have, let me first explain that we live in a small town where the brave men/woman (yes woman as in there is only one currently employed here) risk their lives for a mere $13/hr. Sure it’s a small pay, but it’s what my husband loves and where he’s lived for a large part of his life. With that being said, let’s get down to why I am really here. Being that our rent alone is $650 and our insurance (through his job) gets deducted from his paychecks as well as taxes (obviously) plus the money only coming once every two weeks, that leaves us with anywhere between $800-950 for other bills and expenses…… which worked decently for us even with me being a stay at home mom…. aaaannd then we woke up….. My husband and I have hit (what I can only hope to be) rock bottom! In a matter of two months, we have managed to go through hell…. In chronological order our last few months goes as follows…
* Every tire on our Jeep had managed to gradually go bad…. Ultimately ending in one getting a giant puncture which was unrepairable by any other means other than buying a whole new tire… +Side we managed to get 4 used tires for relatively cheap. Just for the front right cursed tire to go flat…..once again * Our newly bought USED w/d units decided that we only needed a washer and therefore made us dryerless….. * One of our heating elements in our water heater went kaput …. * My husband’s, my own, my father in laws, grandmother in laws, and cousin-in laws birthdays all fall in the same exact month….. * We are told continuously that we do not qualify for food assistance. * I become ill due to reasons STILL unkown. * My husband gets switched from second to third shift (which does not pay more than 1st or 2nd) and gets his hours cut back. * Uber denies me as a driver/employee due to driving without a license almost EXACTLY three years prior to my job inquiry….which 3 years is literally their deadline for any offense to be considered…. * My finger decided that my wedding band was no longer “it’s type” and swole until eventually we had to rush to the fire department to have it cut off.. * My husband’s Chief and every other officer from the pd show up on our doorstep at 8 am to inform us that there was a stolen van left BEHIND our garage with two perps seen running away from said vehicle and that we now we’re part of an investigation (to which my husband and I have fully complied) then put on administrative leave until further notice. * My husband’s ex had our only vehicle towed (long story) leaving us with exactly ZERO forms of transportation! * Our landlord decides NOW is the best time to tell us that he’s close to evicting us due to non payment of rent this month and partial non payment from last month (only because of financial strain)
It’s been one thing piling on top of the other with us…. Our water was shut off in the midst of all this and when we get one bill taken care of three more are due…… We got behind and now werew plummeting downwards…. This is a first and so help me the last time I will ever do this. I don’t like asking for money even when it’s desperately needed. We have always found our way out of these ruts …. But this time is a no go… Please please please please!!! Find it within yourselves to HELPPPP !!
Sincerely, and unapologetically begging…
I would like to start off by telling you how I am my name is Gina W, I’m a full time single mother of 4 wonderful awesome kids 13, 9, 7, and 5 are my children’s ages I’m also full time Nurse, My husband and I are separated for about two years no since then the kids and i have been on our own. We have been managing bearly this month has been one of the worst I’ve had in a while ALL of my children’s summer activities have stopped football camp for my son and my daughter’s had to stop there gymnastics group classes, I just can’t afford it anymore with my bills staking up it’s not fair to them they ask questions alot about why aren’t going to camp or class anymore, Sometimes its very hard to stay strong knowing thongs seem to be falling apart around you, the landlord has been understanding up until this point to where its either pay the $800 or 3 days to evaluate. We truly have no where else to go no money in bank I’m seriously at my witts end I put in helping agencies near me and no one has funds, I have search Internet looking for programs and hardships or any place that could help my kids and I, with not to much luck I truly hope that there is someone out there that can and will open up there hearts to help me and my family NOT to slip through the cracks, I work hard for my family and will continue to. We just reall and truly need help right now anything that we are helped with will not to taking for granted and surely not be soon forgotten.
Thank you listening to my story and for your time, understanding, and consideration
My husband has had caregiver aspects of PTSD, after caring for his mother by himself for nine straight years. He had zero financial or physical help from either family or friends because his mother burned bridges due to alcoholism. He’s improved tremendously since we moved his mother into a nursing home and got her on Medicaid, and is actively seeking employment…but it’s difficult to explain nine years of being off the grid to potential employers. Unless they were caregivers themselves, they will never understand the day-in, day-out grind of dumping toilets, preparing meals, household cleaning and maintenance, administering medication, cleaning incontinence bed messes, the endless rounds of doctors’ appointments, arranging for housecall physical therapists per doctors’ prescriptions, and general wellness monitoring. He did his best, but boy, did he pay for it.
Me, I’m a fiftysomething woman who’s also finding it difficult to get hired permanently. I’m offered short-term temporary gigs about every other week, usually for about 8-16 hours, but monthly income of $350 after taxes doesn’t pay rent and utilities. I’m doing everything I know to make ends meet, but two credit cards are now maxed out, the personal loan I took out has dried up, and we are facing eviction in less than 10 days. I’ve sold everything we can possibly sell: the silver, a few pieces of art, jewelry.
Neither of us qualify for unemployment benefits, since he hasn’t worked in nine years and I only recently started working in 2018. I haven’t made enough income in the state to qualify, and we’re now on SNAP benefits (food stamps for those unfamiliar with the acronym). The $200 we have to our name (as of this writing) is reserved for cat food for a very sweet kitty (and he didn’t ask to be in this situation with us, but we won’t abandon him), laundromat change, and small shots of gasoline so that we can get to an interview. Neither of us are drug users, and we’re typically drama-free…except for now.
All we need is a shot in the arm. $3000, to be exact. What will it go toward? June rent, July rent, utilities (electricity and bundled landline/Internet access/TV) due in July, gas for our one car, and car insurance that’s due next month. We’re foregoing health insurance until one of us is employed, and neither of us carry a cell phone because we’re literally too poor to afford a cell phone contract.
Neither of us ever thought we’d be in this position. His mother obviously doesn’t have funds, my parents have already helped with what they can, and the rest of our families won’t contribute because they’re simply not interested in doing the right thing, or can’t contribute. Our friends are now paying college tuition for kids, or their money is tied up in a new small business, or they simply don’t have any money to loan, let alone give outright.
I have faith that we will get through this awful situation, and that I will be eventually be hired by at least a fast food franchise, but being hired now, with a week’s delay in pay, won’t help our immediate situation. Please, please help us be our hero or heroine and help us ASAP. We will be two very grateful, appreciative human beings who can then give back to others in need, just as an anonymous donor helps us.
I am a mother and wife looking for help putting a roof back over my family’s head. We were recently evicted and escorted off of the property where we lived. We were given 5 days to get our things out, but we have no vehicle, no money, and no where to store our things even if we did have a way to move them. My husband is a disabled veteran and I have a daughter who has two little boys and is expecting another baby and is extremely high risk. I also have my youngest two daughters and myself. We had a little money and had to use it for a motel room and a little bit of food, because the churches told us that they wouldn’t help us because we weren’t members of the church. There are no openings in the only shelter in this area. And without a car, it’s not easy to get to the places that will only take your application for assistance with rent and deposit. We don’t have any time left to wait on applications. We were told this evening that we can stay here until Wednesday evening but that’s it. After that we have no where else to go. And my husband doesn’t receive his benefits until a week from Thursday. We’re exhausted, we’re hungry, and we’re scared to death because we don’t know where we’re going to sleep and eat come Wednesday night. Please help.
I do not know where to start , I never thought I will do this and I know that most people are weary helping other people thinking they are not true to what they say , But all I can tell you is that from a nice Job a nice home and a nice life went to nothing fast ,Lost my daughter last year and two months later my Son Adam tried to kill himself ..you see he had a serious issue but with all of that I tried my best to help him to finish High School , but the big issue is I owe his School 17K if not paid by Aug 15 he will not be able to go to College ,,I am so afraid that he will do something to himself again if that happens .To make matter worse I am behind more than 10K in rent and have no income If you want proof email me and I will give you the name and number of my Landlord and his School .I need help to get out of this mess . I pray each day that somebody will help us so I can get back on my feet and provide for this family again . All I ask is a push so I can do something to make it work .Please help us I do not want my Son Adam to fall into depression again if he does not attend College or if we get evicted God Bless you all and wish everybody a great life of Happiness ans love thank you
I had a regular life for 58 years. I went to school, got a job, got married, raised a family, the american dream. I decided at 58 years of age that I would try and start helping those that weren’t quite as fortunate as myself and thought assisting lower income families find the proper medical and/or financial resources to help them cover their everyday needs would be a good thing. It has been over two years now and I was right. It is a good thing. The reception I receive when I visit these families is worth more than I can explain. The look in their eyes…I can’t explain.
Anyway, during these times I (singular now, she wasn’t on the same page) have adjusted to a very meager lifestyle, sharing a very modest apartment with a (male) retiree who is on SSA and lives a similar lifestyle, and not really missing the “other” things that seem so necessary for some. I have used funds from my savings and a small amount from as part-time insurance agent. (which I was required to have a license in my state that allowed me to “advise” others about the programs they qualified for, government, grrr).
Up until recently this arrangement was working, albeit very close shaved at times, but livable. I was just informed that a number of previous clients with small policies (almost all less than 5k life) were transferred to another company and my commissions earned would be “charged-back” to future payments. No, not over a period of months as they were accumulated, but all at once! Ouch.
I was unable to offset this amount and have become past due on my rent to the tune of $1550.00 (two months) and am facing eviction if I do not remit payment within 3 days! I have exhausted all lines of credit and family assistance and am at wit’s end about what I can possibly do avoid this and not become homeless.
Since this would obviously affect more than just myself, I am asking for all the families I help…PLEASE, if there is anyone that could help me cover this onetime need it would be most wonderful. I know there is somebody with the passion I have to help others. Please, now is the time.
God bless, and thank you.
I need one month of life, one single month of bills, to keep fighting long enough to keep us in our house. For us to keep going on together.
I never thought I’d be here. My wife, son, and I have beens struggling while we both go back to school, trying to get to an end goal. Struggling, but surviving. My wife, Lois, was diagnosed with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome just as she finished her degree. She’s had to get medical care instead of looking for jobs upon graduation, after visiting the emergency room three times in one month for losing consciousness and becoming nearly unable to move at other times. She’s on the mend, and she’s out there looking for work, but we destroyed any savings we had healing her. We’re behind on bills, behind on life, and we’re one step away from losing everything. Our home. Our life. Our fight.
I’m working full time, attending summer classes (trying to), finding every opportunity to pick up work, and selling everything I own on ebay. It isn’t enough and I won’t make it. Within a week or so, everything will start to come to an end. I’m fighting so hard and I’ve become a wreck of a man, experiencing stress I’ve never known in my entire life. I’ve always been poor. I’ve never been destitute. I’ve always found a way, but now I can’t. We were one step away from achieving our dreams and now we can’t even put gas in the car or keep the lights on.
I guess I ought to say how bad it is, but it doesn’t seem like much. We’re a grand behind. We’re one month of bills behind. 1,000 dollars that just seems like something I should be able to find a way to do but I can’t.
We don’t have family we can turn to and I don’t know what to do.I don’t know what to tell my son, he sees the stress and the pain (he’s autistic but high functioning, he experiences this in ways I can’t understand). I don’t know who to be. I don’t know how to save us. This is the last thing I can think of. I don’t even know how it works. I don’t know how to demonstrate my poverty. I don’t know how to tell you that it hurts, it’s painful, and there doesn’t seem to be a light left in the world. I don’t know how to beg. I just want to keep fighting. I just need one month of life to do it.This is my last option. I hope someone is listening. I never understood desperation until today.
Hello. This is quite unusual for me… Im normally so much more independent than this.
Here goes though.. Im just praying this works.
At the end of march, i found a beautiful mainfloor suite for my boyfriend and i to give it one more try. We had remained friends through our breakup, and i found myself compelled to take this opportunity, instead of another to move back home- an hour and a half north of where we live. Turns out, i now am left alone, with our 3rd eviction notice, 5 more days to figure this out… And a sworm of regret for not listening to my insticts in the first place.
We spent the last month fighting, and him growing colder and colder towards me. I later found out that he had started seeing an old fling behind my back- i girl that i grew up with. She recently moved to town, and with news of that-and their affaire, i told them both i would just step out of their way. I wasnt going to set him up for failure, or myself up for heartache.
In the meantime, our deal was to share the rent 50/50. Soon after we moved in, he lost his job for sleeping in. He blames me. The entire 1st month +damage deposit was left on my shoulders to pay up. When i couldnt come up with the remaining 300$, we were evicted for the first time.
The landlord was gracious enough to give us an extention, with promise my boyfriend would have the money and keep the grass cut. The debt cleared- again by me, the next month’s rent came and went… I paid $750 of the $825 owing, and kust like that- time to pay for june. And here i am.
I have until june 16, 2018 to pay up or leave. I signed my own note stating so, as well as the landlord’s version he brought with him, on the 1st. I dont have the money to do so by then, nor will i even by the 26th when i get my check. Im scared. I dont know what im going to do.
Ive exhausted all of my options. I am already on assistance-which can offer no help- as i have no plan to live more withon my means for next month. Ive contacted sally anne, red cross and other agencies who provide relief for such circomstances- all with no luck. Even the churches in town cant help me. I have no family here- and they have their own financial issues, as do my circle of friends… Which grows smaller and smaller due to my- now ex boyfriend talking about me ojt of character.
Im so stuck. Ive never been this stuck before. Ive applied for several payday and personal loans- only to be denied over and over- and!! Scammed twice!! Couldnt afford that shot off the chin either.
Im at a complete loss. I have 5 days and 3 gereatric animals-whom i made a commitment to- and zero plan or way out of this mess im in. None.
As it stands, i owe $1200 ($925 rent $275 utilities). I have no food for myself, almost low on food for the pets, just had to borrow toiletries, no rent and damage for another place OR monry to cover what will allow me to stay here.
Im guessing that i would need between $1500 and $3000 to make it out of this mess, and into a new place i can afford. It just doesnt feel right having to ask the pubic for such an amount… But… I just dont know anymore.
Please, i know its a lot.. And i know that i got myself in this jam.. But should i finally be heard and blessed with all the help i need… This saving grace i am desperate for…
Id do what ever it takes in- my power-to never make this type of mistake again.
Thank you for your consideration.
Thank you for reading my letter and I hope it finds you well. I am writing this letter in hopes that you can extend your helping hand to me.
I was in a car accident that left me in a wheelchair as it crushed both my feet when the motor came through the dash. It started when a vehicle came into our lane to pass another vehicle and hit us head on. I was cut out of my truck, jaws of life were used to move the motor off my feet and then I was life-flighted to the hospital. I underwent three surgeries within 48 hours. I went through months of being in a wheel chair and extensive therapy. I still wear walking casts on both legs. Not a day goes by that I am not in a tremendous about of pain.
My husband was military and walked out a week after the accident, he was driving. He also emptied our bank account. I have applied for help everywhere and have disability pending, in which I have recently applied for. I have found a job that allows me to work when I feel up to it and from home which is a blessing since I now have anxiety attacks when I am in a vehicle. My problem is that I am $1500 behind on rent and utilities, I seem to never be able to catch up and the landlord is tired of waiting. I am at the end of my rope and will be homeless in a week or so. I take care of my granddaughter and don’t know where to turn or what to do. I have reached out to the community offices here to no avail. At 52 years of age this is the first time in my life that I have tried to get help with anything and it is difficult to ask.
I really believe that with your help I can get myself out of poverty and into prosperity. I have started a cake baking business from home but feel that I will have to stop before it gets off the ground due to losing my home. And as my paying job I do transcriptions from home. If you can help in any way I would be forever grateful.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter. I really look forward to hearing from you and I thank you for your time.
If you can see it in your heart to assist me I promise to pay it forward once I am back on my feet. Any help is appreciated.
Hi! My name is Nancy, i have sat here thinking of an elaborate way to describe what i have been going through this year. Yet i found the best way is to just speak from the heart. I am 30 years old, i have a nice home and a good job that has been a huge blessing. I work 9 to 5 Monday through Friday, and i go to church Sunday at 10:30 am and 7pm on Wednesday. I know what you’re thinking… what does this have anything to do with my request? Well if it weren’t for my faith, i would probably still be homeless and hungry, hating God thinking there is no point to life. However, i was able to come to grips with the fact that i had a mental disability and that i had to get help. i lost my children, 4 to be exact (same father in case your wondering) due to this and i have been fighting for 5 years to get them back. Please don’t judge me, i am not a drug addict, or someone that asks for hand outs. I struggle with bipolar I disorder I’ve fought for about 15 yrs with this diagnosis which has made every attempt at success an utter failure. Last year i began to take my medication accordingly and i have made much progress, i have been able to keep a job for a year at a time now which was impossible before. Anyways, jump to present time, i have finally proven myself to my family and my children that i am more than a conquerer and that i can do all things though Christ Jesus who strengthens me. I know have my oldest (12) living with me now, he returned a few weeks ago. Im working on getting my other 3 back. it will be a lengthy process but with God on my side how can i lose? I wont lie i have been going through it folks! My flare ups are more and more constant and i fight this everyday. Due to the change in my routine, my moods haven’t been very stable and i find myself drowning. You see, God blessed me and helped me get my 2 bedroom duplex, get my utilities reconnected and my landlord has been very forgiving, even though i owe her about 5 months of rent ($565 per month) i am falling back on my water bill and currently owe $275.47, light bill 100.28$. You’re probably wondering “How if i have a job?” Well my illness has been flared up past the point of no control, my son is with me now and he has frontal lobe disorder which has me going to doctors appts and courts, etc etc. which is what has brought me here today. I had a dream a few days ago, which led me to this site and at church last night, God spoke to me and said “Do you really think i cant pay your rent?” I have believed in Him for so long, i was in a catholic school as a little girl and have had faith larger than a mustard seed. At times its hard to walk by faith and not by sight…but somehow some way, i am hoping that that the right people will read this and help me. I have been fighting the good fight and i am trying to not only be a better person, but a better disciple of Christ. I am being evicted, if i cant come up with the rent by Friday 6-8-18 for at least 835$ which is what i owe as a partial for last month, and the full rent of this month. I proclaim that this request will reach the right people, and that God is on our side. I am willing to send you the account numbers for the bills, I’m not trying to get away with anyones money, ill even post the bills on the pictures as well. I just spoke to the landlord but it has come to the point where she is paying the mortgage out of her own pocket. M desperate, i wouldn’t be here if i wasn’t. So please if anyone can help, anyone at all. If God has brought you out of something, please can you find it in your heart to help us out. I release this post, with high hopes that God will speak to someone out there. Thank you and God Bless.
My mother (90 in January 2018) has been in the nursing home since 11/2015. She needed to be place there because she was become a danger to her self. I did not have the skills necessary to care for her. She has a long list of illnesses including, alzheimers, dimentia and anti social behavioral disorder.
When she was initially place in the facility there was a lag in time between the billing and the long term care insurance kicking in. As you can see it is about same dollar amount as the over 90 portion of the statement.
I am paying what I can in an attempt to get the balance paid down. The $300-$500 extra per month is no longer suitable for the people in accounting. Her monthly bill is continually paid on time, but the past due balance is not going away quickly enough for them.
Ultimately I would like to clear the 60-90 day balance off. However any type of lump sum payment that I can give them will help. I am facing her being evicted from the nursing home and looking at being personally responsible for the debt in the event that something happen to her. I am the POA.
I am asking that you find it in your heart to help in any way you can. She has seen a lot of things in her life time I am hoping that eviction is not going to be one of them.
My children Izzabella Faith Love Montoya and Sophia Rosalia Montoya have been taken by CYFD, because my baby mama wouldn’t go to rehab while she was pregnant with our second child and as the days came closer too the do date. Our family doctor urged me that it wasn’t a matter of should she go, she told me she needs to go so that our baby wouldn’t be taken from us and I kept pressuring her to go and she didn’t want to listen to me. She ended up putting a restraining order on me preventing me from being there for my baby’s birth and in the order she made me sound like a monster saying threatened my children when I told her I will make sure she wouldn’t be allowed to be in my childrens lives if she wouldnt get her act right.
At the court hearing for the order the judge wouldn’t hear my side of the story or the truth all she did was listen to the lies and she told the judge I was on drugs and I have medication that is a control substance and the judge made us both get tested and I passed and unexpectedly she was dirty and the judge didn’t like that she was dirty and because of what she said about me, we both lost the ability to have our children. Now CYFD is involved.
The funds will go toward the rental lot fee that’s now 2 months behind and soon 3 months on June 1st, and that’s not even the rent to own that I’ve been paying toward owning our first home $8000 out of $15000 I’ve been paying this since last July and ill lose the house and the money I put into it for my family. And CYFD won’t let us get our kids back if I lose their home. the reason why its behind is because my job was cutting my hours back in February that set us behind but not enough I couldn’t pay for march but then my dad was murdered on March 7th and the stress of her using while pregnant, the hours being cut and my dad dying caused me to lose my job and that put me in a state of trauma and my baby mama wasn’t trying to be there for me in my time of distress. while I still did everything to make her happy and our children. then a friend of mine stole our car which didn’t help with the matter at all making it almost impossible to find a job and make money to pay the bills.
I need to have the money by Thursday the 31st or the sheriffs will come to evict me next week. I’ve worked so hard to get out the streets and have what I needed to take care of my children and to lose it all because of lies is killing me inside so bad it hurts me inside to think that everything will fall apart because all I was trying to do was make sure my baby didn’t get hurt from her mothers bad choices.
I would be extremely grateful for anything that you can help a single father who only wants to make sure his daughters have their father in their lives to be there as a good role model for them like I didn’t have. my dad wasn’t there for me or my mom. I was raised by my grandparents and it affected me but I chose to not let my children grow up the same way I was. Please help me be the male role model that my babies deserve. thank you and God bless anyone willing to help my children.
Hi! Thanks for taking the time to read this.
At some point at the beginning of 2017, I started getting really terrible migraines. They were happening a few times a month. The next thing I know they were happening a few times a week and then they were happening every day.
This caused me to lose my well paying job that I had been at for nearly 5 years. I exhausted my FMLA and short term disability. I hadn’t signed up for long term disability because to my knowledge I was a relatively healthy person. I rarely got sick, rarely had headaches, rarely felt anything but normal.
Here I am. 9 months later and I’ve completely exhausted my savings and most of my options. I’m waiting for the government to decide whether or not to approve my Social Security Disability Claim. I applied in February.
I don’t have any family and now I have no friends. People don’t seem to understand what it’s like to be a chronic migraine sufferer and they tend to disappear when someone gets an illness they can’t see. Most just think you’re “faking” it. My question to them is, “Who would fake an illness into poverty?”.
I’ve actually already been evicted. The court ruled in the apartment complexes favor. They’ll red tag my door on Monday and I’ll have until Friday to move out. I’m hoping that I could come up with money before then and work something out so I don’t have to move. I really hope they can work something out for me. I don’t have anywhere to go. I have 3 animals that I love dearly and they don’t have anywhere to go and I couldn’t dream of taking them to the shelter. They are literally my only reason for living at this point. Nobody will love them the way I do. I’ve thought about ending it a few times and every time I think about my animals and how much I love them and how there isn’t anyone else in the world who would love them the way I do.
Hello, my name is Terri. I am currently in a position I never thought I would be in. I’m single, & I work hard to take care of myself. Last year, I was in an accident leading to unexpected repairs being needed on my car. Along with my other expenses, it was difficult for me to save the money to do so. Last month, my little cousin-who was like a son to me-died. Him & his little brother lived with me for a few years & I took care of them. Needless to say, this is the most difficult thing I’ve ever gone through. His funeral & services required leaving town & paying for hotel for myself as well as several family members. I was unable to pay my rent & I am now facing eviction. Unless I am able to come up with back rent along with legal fees, totaling 2800, I will have nowhere to go. I’m not used to asking for help, but this is an emergency. I’m not sure where to look or start. The car repairs, along with other expenses has completely overwhelmed me. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
I am a married woman with a disabled husband and elderly mother-in-law. We just found out we are being evicted because the old landlord sold the house and never notified us. The new landlord has been making our lives miserable with constant harassment and intimidation. We need to move right away and do not have the money to pay for the 3 or 4 months needed to pay for a new place and the moving expenses. We are waiting for a court date, but the stress of this has landed both my husband and myself in the hospital, him because of a heart condition and me from a violent seizure. We also have a dog that was a rescue and cannot give him up. We saved him from the abuser that left him beaten severely and chained to a fence in the park to die. Living in NY is expensive and we need this help so that we can move on and be far away from all the drama this landlord has created.
My husband had finally been getting well after a year of being in and out of the hospital with numerous illnesses. Many trips to the hospital and nobody being able to pinpoint what was causing his internal bleeding. Thankfully, we went to another hospital and they found the root of his trouble was a bleeding ulcer and were able to correct the problem. He almost died a couple of times because it had gotten so bad. We thought our troubles were finally over and he was finally getting well until this fell into our laps. Now it is nothing but a nightmare.
We had a good deal with this place, being given the backyard and garage to use as well as a parking space which my husband really needed because he cannot walk very far and parking is impossible in our area. We found out 3 weeks ago and everyday he calls asking when we are getting out. Constant texts of when are we getting out. The construction going on from 7 am to sometimes 9 or 10 at night. Showing up with a large man hoping to scare us out. Trying to have bikers scare us away. Following my husband when he goes out. Knocking away the stairs to the backyard and throwing our property into the garage along with garbage from the downstairs tenant, filling it to the doorway so we could not enter into there either and taking away his parking spot by placing construction bags full of rocks into the driveway. How much more are we supposed to take?
We need help now before my husband ends up in the hospital again from a heart attack, he has atrial fibrillation and which is why we were at the hospital last week. If you can find it in your hearts to help, we would be forever grateful.
I am asking for financial help on behalf of my family and I because we are facing being evicted from our home. I am a college student, and I am just asking that you please find it in your heart to help my family.
We have lived in our home for over four years, and we have been paying our rent consistently. Due to my grandmother’s unexpected passing last summer because of non-alcoholic liver disease, we have been behind on our rent because of funeral costs and final expenses. My grandmother’s name was on the rental lease, and the house was previously owned by IPS Realty.
IPS was supposed to wipe away all past due payments out of sympathy of my grandmother . My mother and my siblings stay in the same home. IPS never held up their words of wiping the back rent away. They had since sold the home to a new realty company called Team LBR in Detroit, MI. The owner’s name is Brian Davis. They have went to court to try to to evict us. However, they keep sending court documents in my grandmother’s name who is deceased.
They are asking we pay $9,000 in order to stay in this home. I completely understand that this is a large sum of money and there are also other families that are in need, and that no one is obligated to help us, however if someone could talk to the company on our behalf that would be greatly appreciated.
We as a family cannot afford to be put out in the streets. We have reached out to other churches, however we have not received a response from them at all. Thank you for taking the time to read my request.
P.S. I am not expecting any money to be sent to my account (I just pasted my PayPal because it is required). My family and I are just trying to be able to stay in our house and just need help to get back on our feet. We were homeless before we got the house we are being evicted from, and we are not trying to have that experience again. We would appreciate you for your help, and we ask that you send any of your donations or if you just want to talk to the Team LBR, that would help us out. Anything will help, thank you.
I am a university student currently working 2 jobs and paying my own tuition, i have no other family to support me and have been failing to make ends meet. Three weeks ago i fractured my wrist and have been unable to work and had to cover several medical expenses with the very small amount i had in my savings. I have already pushed the payment back twice and am now 2 weeks behind on rent if i don’t make the payment in 5 days i will lose my apartment have have nowhere to stay. Exams are in a few weeks and i have no time or money to arrange a new place to live, I’m struggling to study due to the injury and being forced out of my home is making things worse. I’ve scrambled for a loan but without any income have been rejected everywhere i applied. Just when i thought it couldn’t be worse one of my jobs has informed me that they may need to lay me as they are getting more customers and can’t afford to be short staffed. i have tried everything i possibly could and scrambled my brain for a possible solution but i can’t see a way out of this situation. My debt has come to $1150 and anything to make that smaller would be an incredible blessing
Please help me, I don’t know what else to do.
I am a mother of two small boys, ages 5 and 8 months, we currently live in Tennessee.
I’m gonna start from the beginning, before moving into the home we have now, we were homeless for 2 Years – shelters, hotel rooms, etc – until we got our taxes and moved and bought a car. Everything’s perfect, untill March. The father of my kids was a secret heroin addict and I somehow didn’t know. (Stupid, I know) and he did go to jail for stealing and possession, leaving me with nothing but my small part time job. March 15th my best friend of 17 years passed away. It’s still a void I cannot seem to fill. I cry every single day over her loss. While I was at her funeral, my home got broken into. Money stolen, my sons tablet, other items that meant something to us… It was devastating. We still don’t know who it was. I also lost my job over her funeral, my boss wanted me there 2 hours early and honestly I had already missed the day before because I was mourning. But because she wasn’t a technical family member, he didn’t allow it. I tried explaining she was my sister, we grew up together, did literally everything together… But I still got terminated. A couple weeks after that bills came in, I pawn the title to my car to get some bill money, and then my passenger Axel breaks… It’s still broken. I have no money, no transportation to get anywhere or find a job.. nothing. I wouldn’t have he cash anyways i can’t pay a babysitter upfront..
My rent is over due, car payment due last week.. I am stuck. And I don’t have anywhere else to go… I don’t have family I can call and save the day, it’s just me. I don’t even have my best friend anymore….
I just need help with my rent, that’s my main concern. We have already been through so much especially my oldest boy. He deserves to always have a home, and I feel the shittiest mom for it… Excuse my language, but that’s the best way I could put it.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. God bless.
- my name is Andrew. I am 29 years old and currently live as a single dad of 4 children, my wife passed away 2 years ago in a car accident. Up until 2 months ago I was full time employed with a great job in the oil fields of North Dakota. Back in March I was laid off and its been a struggle ever since. I moved back home to Utah and I can’t seem to catch up. I didn’t have much savings and i fell behind quick. I have had to sell almost everything I have to keep a roof over our heads and food in our bellies thus far but I find myself needing just one short stretch away from being okay. I try to remain positive I have found a job but my first pay check is a long ways off and I need to pay the rent. My apartment manager has been as gracious as possible but can only do so much. It would mean the world and then some to get help . If I lose my home it will be a much harder hole to crawl out of . I have failed my family and this is my Hail Mary attempt asking for help. I more than willing to pay back or pay forward any help. Thank you in advance.
Hi, this isn’t a easy thing to say. This eviction is all my fault. I made a mistake. And a bad judgement call. I have a roommate who I share rent with. We both pay $600 a piece for $1,200 rent. I have a boyfriend ,she has a boyfriend. I on the other hand gave my boyfriend our rent money. He told me he was stranded in Australia with no money. And he would give it back when he got back in town. I told him that it was my rent money and it was important that he paid me back asap. But he didn’t! This isn’t the first time it’s happened. I fall for it every time. I need help understanding who I am. I’m not perfect. I know I’ll be judged for doing this and I’m already embarrassed enough. I wanted to kill myself because I can’t recognize Who I Am anymore. I hurt people because I let someone control me. I am begging for someone to help me. We owe two months rent, 1200 for April + 300 for legal fees and $100 for a late fee. We owe May rent $1,200 plus $100 late fee. So far we owe $2,900. I betrayed my roommate. She trusted me. And I use the money for someone who didn’t even care about me. I’m no longer with this man. And I’m trying to start over it over and move forward. I tried everything to get the money. So this is the last thing I’m trying. I know I don’t deserve help but I’m asking anyway.
Here is my PayPal link
I’m not sure if this will ever be read and I’m even more doubtful that this will ever be acted upon but a chain of circumstances have led me to a point in life where I’m finding this to be the only option I have left.
I just managed to break free from a toxic relationship that has left me with a place I can’t afford. I suffer from PTSD due to being sexually assaulted a few years back which also led to chronic and crippling depression and anxiety. I find it incredibly difficult to leave my home which has now led to a mild form of agoraphobia.
I am currently on long term sick for my condition while I undergo intensive therapy to help overcome my trauma and struggles. Recently my employer wrote to me and let me go as I cannot foresee when I will be able to return to work.
My Car was recently taken away as I could no longer afford the payments on the vehicle or to even keep it running. I drove around for a long time without fully functioning brakes which was not only a risk to myself, but a huge risk to others.
I’m looking for a donation or loan of £5000 – £7500 GBP which will enable me to pay off all existing debts, get back up to date with my rent (I’m currently 5 months behind [£1600 GBP]), become up to date with all priority bills and leave me a small sum to buy a little run around car to get me to and from my much needed therapy sessions. I am also due to begin full time education in September to kick start my new career and the funds would also be used to help buy equipment and books relating to the course.
I can provide pictures of my debt and also income/expenditure so you can see I have more going out than coming in. I’m also quite happy to pay the money back once I am back on my feet and in a better financial position. I don’t expect to get this money for free.
If by any chance someone does happen to reach out and help me, I would be overwhelmingly grateful. It would take off a huge burden and would prevent me from becoming evicted and essentially homeless.
Im pretty certain whoever reads this will be used to the typical “sob” stories but I’m really unsure as to what else I can do. As mentioned, I’m happy to pay back the money as I don’t expect this for free. I’m just hoping there’s someone out there who can help me.
I am appealing for financial help because I am in deep financial trouble at the moment and have been threatened with eviction from my home.
I gained a university degree in a health science subject 3 years ago, but since then I have only been able to find temporary office work. I have always worked hard at the jobs I have had and employers have been happy with my work, but I end up getting laid off as they don’t need me anymore. My last job ended early this year and I have been searching hard for a new job since, but have had no luck so far.
I have been struggling to pay the rent and recently had a letter from my landlord threatening eviction. I have paid as much rent as I can, but it has left me with hardly any money left to live on. I claim Universal Credit, but after paying rent there is not much left for anything else.
I am struggling to afford travel costs to attend job interviews, and also clothes and shoes to look smart. In addition to this, I cannot afford to furnish my home properly or buy household goods such as cleaning equipment and a new vacuum cleaner. My bedroom is only partly carpeted and my living room walls badly need painting.
I have a lot of debts, mostly from trying to improve my prospects with education and also from having to move several times in the past to find employment. I have a payment plan at the moment with as debt charity, but it looks like I will soon need to apply for a debt relief order, as I can’t afford to pay my debts.
My family have never given me any support. I have been homeless twice in the past, once as a result of a burglary and another time after losing a job, and my family have refused to help.
I have always been a hard worker and have never been a big spender. I am currently applying for jobs every day, but it’s frustrating not hearing anything back after spending so much time applying. I intend to keep on applying for jobs and trying hard to stay positive.
I plan to spend any money obtained on: 1. New clothes and shoes for job interviews, 2. Catching up with my rent, 3. Furnishing my home and buying new household goods. 4) Reducing my debts.
I currently owe my landlord $1530 ( 2 monthly payments of 660 plus a $30 late for each month. And a filing fee of 150 for having a judgment filed against me) in other words I have until the 28th of this month to come up with $1500.
I was recently laid off from Toys R Us (on April 11th) after the company announced it’s Liquidation. Ever since, I’ve been looking for a job and applying for a ton of loans to pay my rent. I’ve found a job, but my start date isn’t until the 14th of this month and because of my horrible credit I can’t get approved for anything. I’ve even took it upon myself to beg celebrities through social media for help. Of course that wasn’t successful. After speaking to my landlord about my situation she’s agreed to extend the 10 day notice to evacuate to premises until the 28th, giving me 20 days instead. But I’m seriously coming to a point of defeat. This isnt the first time a situation like this has occurred. Last year around September, i got into a car accident which lead to me being out of work due to my injuries. I got behind on my payments and was in the same predicament as I’m in now. Unfortunately this time i don’t have family to turn to to help me out. So here i am.. Hoping and praying and BEGGING that who ever reads this will send a blessing my way. Any little bit helps, really. I wouldn’t be as worried about being evicted if it was just me living here but i have 2 dogs that i am NOT willing to give away. So again.. Any little bit helps.

I’ve done the research I get $ 800 a month I paid 200 in child support rent is 475 my phone bill is 35 toiletries 15 and even with $100 I get in food stamps and go to food pantries I have to spend a little cash on food to get through the month I’ve spoken to my landlord he’s a really a good guy he said if I could come up with 800 he would stop the eviction but I have no way to come up with $800 I’m just praying to the Lord that somebody will feel my situation in the disparity I am in and be able to help me if it comes down to it and I have to move I don’t even have enough to move into a new place leaving here is not an option by the grace of God a blessing is sent I will most definitely pay it forward every time I can if not I’m going to be homeless literally in the street. Thank you so much for your time and hopefully someone will be able to reach out God bless you guys
I am a first generation college student that is studying film technology at the local community college I’m single and have no family it was mother and I tend to be a loner. Two months ago I had some mental issues arise that I didn’t have before. I have depression,anxiety and recently diagnosed with PTSD. It’s rough to deal with a changing mind that runs off and hears voices that aren’t there. I am on medication but this condition forced me to quit my job it was just too much. I can manage school only because a majority of my classes are online. I applied for Disability but have been told it could take months and sometimes years before I am approved.I am getting treatment and see a counselor twice a week along with meds. I was cut off food stamps because I’m a college student so that added to the burden I am now carrying. This unexpected illness left me without an income and I was behind on my rent last month and its due again today. I got a 3 day notice last month and my landlord says she will have to start the eviction process if I don’t have it in 5 days. I’ve applied for housing but don’t have an appointment until mid June. I’m behind $185 from last month and $540 due today 05/05/18. I’ve tried every other resource but there is just no help I’ve been told that first choice for assistance are mother and kids and veterans which I’m not either of those. I’m really in dire need and if I get caught up I can manage rent from there with my grant money from school. If I don’t have my apt I cant continue my studies.My whole goal is to break this cycle of poverty and become an educated career minded citizen that can and will pay it forward in the future for the generous gift I will be granted here and now.
Thank you in advance,
i’m a little unsure why i’m Even doing this… it’d Be a real miracle for someone to just pick my story out of many..but no one will ever be able to say I haven’t tried anything besides prostitution or stripping….which I love the lord and would rather not do at all. I lost my nursing assistant job a few months ago due to me having to call off because of child care issues. Once I had finally though my child care issues were solved I made an agreement with my job at the time that I wouldn’t call off for another 6 months straight unless it was my death practically. Anyway I signed a paper and a week after I sign it a weekend I was scheduled to work, I had gotten off work to pick up my daughter from my mom, I went to where they were at a birthday pool party, and I pull in the driveway/parking lot next to my moms car to find my child in her car seat with a blanket asleep. I panic of course and thank god my moms car was unlocked but then again thank god no one took my baby and thank god most of all she was alive. But she was drenched in sweat poop and pee. I was extremely livid and refused my mom from being in care of my daughter ever again. She’s lucky I didn’t put her in jail because she has my two younger siblings to raise by the grace of God. They’re a little older of course. Anyway, since then i’ve Lost my job because I had no one to watch my daughter on a Sunday for me, I even called a friend who said she would come over and never showed up. Guess who’s not her friend, yep me. It’s been hard paying my rent and keeping the electric and gas on. Currently my gas is off right now, my cable is off, and tomorrow my phone will be shut off, so i’ll Have absolutely no connection to anything. I’m supposed to give my landlord $775 by the 24th, that’s my rent plus the $50 late fee. Then my month of May rent is due by May 5th which is $725. And I certainly don’t have $1500 to stay here, plus the extra $172 for cable or WiFi, especially the $90 for my gas bill to be able to cook on the stove and take a hot shower. I’ve never been drowning this deep before and that’s just a little bit of my story. At least I have an interview tomorrow and I’ve been applying to jobs like crazy. Anything with an income coming in…if anyone is feeling generous enough out there..i’ll Receive it, even if I don’t fully deserve it and this happens to many people and somehow they figure it out. If not, I can only say I tried and will continue to pray on it. Thanks for anyone who read my story and I’m grateful to know i’m Not alone in struggling. God is always Good to us regardless.
Here’s my PayPal:
My family and I have reached financial turmoil and I am not sure where else to turn. This attempt to receive a donation is my last hope. We are 2 months behind on every bill we have and termination of my power & water are next. The electric will be disconnected on the 1st of May, my water on the 15th of May, and my landlord wants his money now. I recently lost my job, which was a work at home position, due to not having the money to pay the internet bill. I have a disabled husband and a 1 year old daughter. At this time, the electric bill is $270, the water bill is $150, and the rent I owe is $1,065. The landlord has been patient, but it is wearing thin. In order to make it I need donations that total approximately $2,000. I am doing everything I can think of to make money, barring anything morally bankrupt or illegal. What it all boils down to is that I need help. My family needs help. We are on the brink of homelessness and I am just not sure what else I can do. I have pawned everything worth anything to get us this far. I am out of items and out of ideas. I have found a new job; however, it has not started yet and pays monthly for the entire month prior. If they called me tomorrow and I was able to work the whole day, the maximum number of hours I could get is 72. That would total $720 on the 15th of May. It will all be for naught though, because the power will be turned off by then, and I will have lost another job due to being unable to pay my bills. It’s like a horrible case of deja vu. Please, Please, Please find it in your heart to donate to our situation. Any amount would be most appreciated! I just need help out of this current situation and by June 15th, I should be able to take the reigns again. I just have to be able to make it there. Please! I have that 1 year old angel and cannot bare the thought of her not having a home. Please help, please. It would be more appreciated than words can express. Thank you again for reading my plea and remember, anything will be helpful, anything.
Hello to all whom will offer up support in this tough time. My name is Brandon and my mom and I share a one bedroom apartment on one income. She is elderly and doesn’t have anyone to help or watch her so I do. Lately things have become really tough as I’m being garnished from my paycheck. My goal is to prayerfully raise enough money so that in the days following my court appearance for this eviction will be very stressful. I do have a full time job so I will be able to contribute to part of my outstanding balance on Friday but Im not sure how long I will have after the hearing. Also next month rent is directly around the corner. It is very stressful to not know who will help nor how you will get things taken care of financially. We moved here from a different state and don’t have any contacts locally. I’ve tried eviction assistance programs but they were unable to assist at this time. I also tried reaching out to Human Services but my circumstance isn’t considered as an emergency for them to assist. So I’m all out of options. If there is someone that will have compassion to please be a blessing to help me and my mother it would really be life changing for my mother and I. I’ve tried personal loans but due to credit scores I can’t get approval. Payday loans have been what’s help me in the past so I’m in debt with them as well and repaying them. Thank God for food banks because lately that has been how my mother and I have been able to eat. It’s is very heartbreaking to feel so alone in a time as desperate as this is now. May God bless all who has made thus far in reading this and I pray that his favor and grace and mercy be with all whom has compassion enough to help out in this time of struggle. Thanks for your time, God Bless!
I normally don’t ask for help but at this point, unfortunately, it has become a desperate situation.
I looking for assistance to keep from getting evicted from the apartment I have lived in for more than 25 years. We need $2500 to pay rent current. And I would like to have dental work done so I can attempt to smile again $3800 just to get started. Something I haven’t been able to do for quite some time now. If anyone would be willing to loan me the funds needed I’m willing to setup arrangements to pay back what I receive. I just want to somehow get on a somewhat even playing field if that is at all possible.
In addition to the eviction notice, my husband was diagnosed with syncope/arrhythmia he is now on two separate medications to help elevate the frequent fainting spells. I have asthma which requires me to use 2 separate inhalers and antihistamine, Claritin-D to keep my lungs clear. We both need dental work. The permanent partial I had in my mouth for years broke so I have no front teeth. It’s hard to smile when you don’t front teeth. People will talk to you but they shun you because you don’t have a beautiful smile or a somewhat presentable presence. My husband had broken and rotten teeth in his mouth. We managed to live off $1041 per month for a time but you can only rob Peter to pay Paul so many times. We have a title loan on our vehicle which is now up for repossession since we can’t come up with the payment for April. Interest compounds daily we did this to cover rent previously. Will never ever do this again they make it seem so simple and easy but man they hound you daily.
I have attempted to find employment, only to be turned down time after time. Really think it’s the age factor laid off at 57. At that time I wasn’t old enough to collect social security since you have to be at least 62. It has been a struggle over the past few years as I was laid off in 2012 when the company I worked for moved to Ohio. They offered no assistance to help you move (relocation assistance) medical coverage was decreased as well as a cut in salary. Those that opted to take a chance were let go after less than a year. I’m finally receiving my portion of social security but, trying to catch up isn’t easy after years of just barely living.
Can someone please, please help me get above water and paddle along with civilization again?
I have never even considered asking for help this way but this is an absolute dire emergency. My fiance Darryl, myself and our 11 year old son have been renting an apartment from a family member for the past year. We’ve always had problems getting anything fixed or done, we spent this past winter with no heat because he would keep making excuses as to why he couldnt come fix it each day. The refrigerator freezes everything in it and that was told to us when we moved in, something else that was promised to get fixed right away.
About 2 months ago we fell into a hardship and had to pay rent a little late for the first time. Everything was fine at the time because he said that he understood and that we are family. Well, we still owe $150 of the rent but have been working hard to get it caught up.
This morning, out of nowhere, he very quietly placed a 5 day eviction notice on our door this morning with extremely vague reasons for the eviction. He will not return my calls so I am going to take action against him because of the way this was done. I have messages stating everything was ok. There was nothing that indicated a coming eviction. So my family and I are reaching out for the first time ever using anything like this in hopes that someone can help us get an apartment within 5 days. Something small is fine, a roof over our heads is all we need. Our son is enrolled in school here so we need to stay in this town and there are not very many choices as far as rentals go. The one that i found is a 2 br 1ba apartment, fully furnished with a garage and they are asking $700 per month and $700 deposit. So that is why i set the goal for $2000.00, to factor in moving there also. Any help is greatly appreciated and we are able to pay this back if that helps. Its just difficult coming up with that much money on such short notice. Darryl works full time and i work part time so we would be more than happy ro repay. Thank you for taking your time to read this. Thank you so much!
Hi. I’ve never done anything like this before and I am now in desperate need of help. I basically had to grow up from the age of 13 had my own place by 16 and ended up a mess now that I’m 30. Irresponsibly thinking I could withhold rent because the landlord wasn’t doing their job probably was bad enough and then ending up with debt by being too generous. My so called family have never done anything for me and I’m constantly alone in this world on a mediocre minimum wage job. Now that mould from the damp in my house has caused damage to all the big expensive furniture I’m stuck I’ve no sofa, no bed and sleeping on a mattress on the floor. I feel like everything around me has collapsed. The people I’ve been generous to have disappeared and not offered or given me any help when asked, I really need a break or something. I suffer from mental health issues and having so much lying over me it doesn’t help me I never seem to come out of the other end and I fight every day to get out of the situation of money worries. I always wanted to have a family and now I don’t think I will ever get one because I will never be financially stable.
Anything would help me and I would be forever grateful, please help a lonely woman constantly trying to make ends meet.
Hello. This is weird for me to do because I don’t normally need help. However this time is something I can’t do alone.
Myself and my 2 kids, oldest is 11, and my second is 9. My son has adhd.
I recently found my life shattering. My husband left me and took our youngest child with him and moved to his moms. He left me with very little. As of now I have been on leave of absences from work due to a tumor found in my back. This coupled with my anxiety and major depression. I see 2 therapists. My son sees a therapist, and I start my radiation for my tumor in a week.
Im hopefully returning to work within the next week. However it’s to late to save my home. I’ve talked with many people in the rental office and no one will work with me to allow me to stay here. Also do to my name not on the lease I can’t get help from agency’s. I did call them but they also said they don’t have funds. Now I found out I’ll be evicted on the 19th. I just moved to this state about a year ago and I have no friends or family, I had asked my mother in another state to help however she refuses to help me because she is saving up for liposuction. I need to find an apartment in 9 days. I’ve found one that’s more in my price range and it’s nearby so the kids can remain in the same school. But due to unable to work I have no funds to help me.
I always help when I can. I’d give my last dollar to a friend most of the time. But this time I don’t have the support system I thought I had.
So im asking for help. I need $5,000 for my move. This will help me pay the rent, application fee, moving expenses, and transportation. Along with basic furniture because my husband took that too. Right now my son sleeps on the couch and me and my daughter sleep on some blankets.
My luck has been very low and any donation would help me so much. I’m fact I could cry if I can get to that goal because it’s been so hard for me and my kids the past few months adjusting to life without my husband and without their baby sister.
So in advance I will say thank you so much for all the help you provide me and my family, we are so greatful from the bottom of our hearts.
I’m loosing my family home. My children were raised here. My parents died here. In fact it was my parents home that they made me promise on their death beds to keep. I didn’t know I only had a year to file their will. While my mom was dying I had a divorce. It left me with poor credit. I had a friend of seven years move in that I trusted. We decided she would be in charge of finance’s. Every two weeks she would tell me she payed this bill or that bill. I never received any notices in the mail of owing or being late. She took off with my dog and leaving her autistic grown son behind. He runs off playing all the time and is of no help. I work but have copd, and congestive heart failure. My family all spilt apart. So my house was sold for taxes and mortgage. A real estate company bought it for 29k. I have been in contact with them trying to work this out. I wanted a rent to own. They just seem to want money and haven’t given me a price yet. They want to know if I can get a cosigner. I have tried to get online loans, had a couple friends try to get a loan from the bank, and have asked everybody I know to give me a personal loan. None of that has worked. I’m afraid I will be kicked out soon. I have no driver’s license, no help to move. I would either like some guardian angels to help me with money to move or buy my house back off of what seems to be flippers from their Facebook page. My hope and wish is to keep my home. My family home,my memories, apart of my parents, and not be homeless. I’m begging for your help please. The company’s name is Eichelberger realty llc if you want to look at their website or Facebook page. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will pay this kindness forward.
As you can see, me, along with my three children will be evicted from our home on Monday if I don’t come up with past due rent! I am BEGGING for $4000.00!!! I fell into the online payday loan trap also so this amount will cover past due rent as well as paying off FOUR payday loans :( (they are costing me $400 a month JUST TO RENEW each time!) If I don’t get those paid off I will only continue to fall behind. I have eliminated the reason for getting behind in the first place so God willing I won’t get in this predicament again!
I have been denied, denied, denied for a personal loan because my credit score is 560. I haven’t been sleeping well, I can barely eat…I have a horrible feeling in my stomach 24/7 and I get shaky off and on. I don’t like being in this situation as I’m sure no one does! I have imagined over and over in my head what in the world I will tell my children come Monday. I don’t know what else to do and I’m TERRIFIED!! My children and I may literally be homeless come Monday and I feel like the biggest failure and even more so, I am devastated that I have failed my children!
I am almost in denial that I am at this point and I just can’t wrap my head around it!
I have looked into direct sales companies, but even if I THOUGHT I could be a “salesperson” I can’t afford any of the start up kits. I have tried to sell baked goods thru social media….SOLD NONE! I have nothing to sell, nothing of value…NOTHING! I buy necessities at the grocery store, I don’t go anywhere on the weekends because I need the gas to get to and from work. I do everything I can to keep my kids occupied so they don’t get bored and ASK to go anywhere because it kills me to tell them no! I don’t care that I do without but my KIDS are going without and I can’t bare it any longer so here I am, with all of my being, on my knees BEGGING for someone to find it in their heart to get me out of this horrendous situation I have gotten us into :(
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and if YOU are the angel that pulls me out of this mess, may God bless you in SO many ways and I’m not sure how right this second but I WILL pay it forward! paypal.me/brenixon
Please help during a difficult few months. I am a wife of an alcoholic who has been in and out of rehab. He started to drink heavily at the age of 24 when he was in a car accident that killed his brother. He is now 46 and never trully healed. He was also diagnosed with BiPolar disorder and goes through manic episodes at least twice a year. We have a 13 year old son together.
We have been through hell and back with his addiction.
6 months ago, my husband tried to quit drinking cold turkey on his own, which landed him in the hospital. He then was sent to a detox facility and rehab. He has been off work since then and now going through issues with him returning back to work. He is now sober, for 30 days now which is a blessing.
The medical bills, medical bills, rehab bills and now household bills are trully taken a negative effect on me. For the past few months, I will taking from Peter to pay Paul, and this has now put me in a deep hole.
I need help to get me out of this hole and start all over.
Any penny would help. I am not the type of person to seek any help because of my pride, but I feel I have to go through humility in order to humble myself to accept any help.
My family and other resources are tapped out.
Thank You all for listening.
I am in dire need of financial assistance. At only 22, I’ve experienced more hardship and setbacks than I can mentally handle. I grew up in a household with little to no food, an eviction notice nearly each month, but endless love. My mother tried best she could but living as a single mother of two with a paycheck to paycheck mentality never got us anywhere but in debt. Finally in 2016, she passed away from lung cancer. My father was already disabled and receiving government assistance so he could not help. My brother is mentally ill with Aspergers so he had no help to offer, either. My two dogs and I were officially homeless but at least I had a job where people cared. It was during this time I came out as transgender. When I was offered a room with a coworker, it wasnt long until I had to leave again. This time, I found a room with my partner, 21, in Brooklyn. He had an even harder time than I; growing up with Autism in an abusive home has not left him with much confidence in a future. We were struggling to pay our bills, any family I had with money refused to assist, and he did not have anyone to ask. We decided it was time to move back to Jersey and help his 19 year old, physically disabled sister, who was homeless at the time. Now we’ve come to learn that we’ve been rented an illegal property. This apartment is practically uninhabitable between the rodent infestation, the damaged plumbing, and the leaking roof. We tried to withhold rent but with him and his sister out of work, it became impossible for me to pay $1550 myself a month and now we are being evicted. Living here for 3 months has only made us all more sick and mentally unwell. All we need is a break.
I’m asking for literally any amount of money. Immediately I need $3,000 to fight off this eviction and find a better living arrangement. After which, I need a chance to pay off my debts which consist mainly of medical and school loans which to repair my credit and start a better life. Vocational training for my partner in either security or personal fitness would be next priority. He needs to know that he is worth the life he’s been given and has the potential to succeed. He’s never been given a chance, so I want to give him one. I, myself, would like to work with nonprofits. Whether I take collage courses or buy books to study the business on my own, I will need some financial help beginning the process. I hope to one day have a charitable orphanage of my own that aims to provide orphaned/homeless youth with education, housing, and the arts.
Please, give me a chance to learn what life can be. I have been depressed with suicidal thoughts since I was only seven. I never imagined a future for myself because I didn’t think there would be one. Now that I have gotten here, I am so lost. Even more so, I am scared that the stress of poverty is too much for me to handle. I fear I may not have much time left if I continue to experience this hardship. As much as I want to help change lives for the better, I cannot seem to do that for myself. As the saying goes, “You can’t expect to help someone if you can’t help yourself”. That is where you come in. You can not only help save my life, but do so knowing I aim to save others’ lives. I beg for you to help me. All I want is a chance to start from zero instead of below. Please help me. Please. Thank you for taking the time to read. I hope your life is as benevolent as you are.
