I am not able to help my son who committed a crime to help me. I am 84 years old. My dear neighbor is typing this in as I am not able to. My son is not very smart he dropped out of high school to take care of me. He is very devoted and am blessed to have him. He has been sentenced to serve 28 years. He stole a total 250k from people. He should not have done that at all. He must pay that back or go to jail next month. He was able to buy time so he could find a place for me to live. We have no other family. I want to help him pay it back very fast as I don’t want him in jail and I don’t want to live anywhere else. I will be gone by the time he gets out. He’s a good boy never been in any trouble and I want to help him. We are both scared right now. I beg you to please help in any way you can because we can’t help ourselves right now. I would put in a picture but we don’t know how to. Thank you.
Okay, so, I’m giving this a shot.
My boyfriend and I work seasonal jobs (landscaping) and with that, we’ve always had troubles his time of year. This year, the threat of being homeless with our six year old son is very prominent. This is the last little bit of time we have to raise money for the deposit on an apartment before we’re on the streets. Flu season struck us hard, I’ve been battling many illnesses, and though manageable for years, upon surviving a car accident in January totaled my car and left us with no running vehicle to get to work, access fresh food or ultimately use as a camp in the event we don’t make it and not land an apartment. We’ve got no family in the area… no forms of support. For a while we were using Lyft and Uber to get to work and go grocery shopping but that’s just depleted our funds to get out of the situation further. I feel like we’ve hit a wall and regardless of how hard we’ve worked to get where we are, it’s irrelevant now.
sorry for the wall of text. I dislike having to beg, but we’re all out of options.
I want to thank you for taking the time to read this, even if you just scrolled over. Every little bit helps, and every little bit returned in karma for your beautiful soul.
Hello to all who are reading this. I am currently 5 1/2 months pregnant and have been recently placed on doctor ordered leave due to my cervix trying to open. I am behind on my rent for 2 months because the amount of money that I’m getting isn’t helping to cover all the bills. My rental office just sent a final notice stating that I will me getting evicted mostly likely Tuesday morning unless I come up with $1087 to cover one months rent.
At the moment I am currently trying to find a way to make extra money as long as it’s safe for child. I just would like to stay in my house for another month because I know I can afford it next month when I her my taxes back which will cover the rent for the next 4 months so i’ll have time to save up money.
I have no where to turn to I tried to ask family and friends and they are all pretty much in the same portion as I am it’s been a rough 2017 which is making 2018 a little rough so far. I will be so very grateful to whomever decides to help me in this dire time of need. Please help me stay in my home with a roof over my head so I can give my unborn baby a chance to live.
My name is Bode Moore, I am 20 years old and live in a small town in Wisconsin. Today I received a 5 day notice to pay my rent back pay or to move out. It being Wisconsin it is extremely cold especially with nowhere to go. Loans aren’t an option, I wont get my taxes back soon enough and my landlord wont wait any longer. Now the only reason i’m in the mess I am in right now is because back in June of 2017 I left my job at Walmart for a better paying full-time job at a local background check company. I started off doing really well and then in the middle of my time working there I had a lot of personal things starting to go on in my life and it started to affect me at work and so eventually i started performing poorly and so they had to let me go. For the next three months after that I applied everywhere I could in town and nowhere would hire me except the local Burger King. The only reason it is still an issue is because I don’t have trash for hours. I usually work two days a week on a good day and this upcoming week I don’t work at all. Me and my roommates checks combined don’t even cover a full months rent and if I leave I will have to re-home my dog and he is honestly the most important thing to me and I can’t afford to lose him. Please any help would be more than appreciated.
Hello everyone. My name is Mekaela and my dog’s name is Casper. We have recently just moved from Bay Area to Los Angeles. I am employed delivering food. I had some money to pay the first month’s rent, however I had to make a trip from Los Angeles to Missouri for a family member’s death on the first week of December. We drove almost 1,000 miles to get there… and back here. Bad things come in waves, my grandmother died during her birthday which was kn Christmas eve. It is the saddest holidays I have ever been. My grandmother was the one who raised me and she is now gone.. I had to help with funeral and that set me back for my rent’s payment for this month and other bills. Tomorrow my car is getting repossessed if I don’t pay $1100 . It’s the only income I have and helping me to pay my rent at the moment and if I lose it, I will lose everything. I’m getting evicted in 2 days if I don’t pay (1,400 behind rent) and nowhere to go. I asked help from the government and private charities and churches but they can’t help me and got turned down.. only help I got is food stamps. At this point, I don’t know what to do, I have never thought about writing this and even asking money from people but I am desperate and I am terrified to sleep at the park with my dog. Thankfully I have him as a great companion and a wall to lean on during this hard time. I am in the process of finding a new and long term job to get back on my feet but right now I don’t know what to do, I don’t know anybody in this new city that we are in, I have nobody to ask for help. Please help us. I know there is going to be a way that we will get through this.
Any help is appreciated.
We are a family that has been hardworking n responsible. In 2015 we found out our son 14 years young had terminal brain cancer stage 4. We fought n battled cancer, insurance companies denying treatment n we had to try n give 1000%. Rent months behind, car payments 90+ delinquent his truck repo’d, loss of income from work due to medical care. Family and few friends and our landlord have been gracious and generous. We dont care or need material things and we gave and would still give it all up 4 our baby boy that lost his battle Jan 24, 2017. At this point we have lost everything meaningful. We have fur babies that are now our biggest concern. How do we live on the streets with 5 pets n keep them safe. We have sought out shelters n none accept pets. ..we have jobs n if we go to hotel again they are at risk.. My better half said responsibly we should take n drop them at a shelter n pray they find homes but they be separated n that rips my heart in half. We are current on monthly rent but have $4457 in arrears for late fees n court costs. He worked with us but now has exercised his landlord hand and wants it all tomorrow or face eviction. If anyone anywhere can help i am swallowing my pride to save the lil family i have together n sane. We r willing to stay in a backyard, garage, empty room. I need a miracle to avoid destroying what lil we have left and i will fight till my last breath to save these innocent babies. Paypal.me/azhomelessaz6

Hello, my name is Andis, I’m from Latvia and I’m in need.
As almost everyone, I’m feeling skeptic about this, but unfortunately at this moment I’m desperate enough to try it. I’m 29 y.o. widower (wife passed 2 years ago because of tuberculosis) father of two beautiful kids (boy is 7 and girl is 3), I raising them alone, without any help and support… I never had any problems, I could handle any, event the most hardest, situations. But everything went out of the control last summer (2017). I very badly damaged my left leg (especially the knee) at work, so I had to spend 2 months in a hospital… My workplace refused to pay any compensations, because I didn’t work there legally. That’s why I asked few banks to help me with the loans, for healing my leg, for the rent, for the childcare and the babysitter services (I don’t have any relatives or friends in this area, I don’t have parents – I’m an orphan and my wife’s parents don’t talk with me, they always wanted a better, richer man for their girl, they even ignore the existence of their grandchildren, they don’t care about their own daughter’s kids). I took 2000 EUR in loans, hoped to handle it all out fast as possible, but doctors said that my leg needs for a few more operations and still there will be no guarantee that it will be the same as it was. I had enough money only for two operations. After those 2 months doctors let me home. I lost my job. And I’m still try to find a new one. It’s difficult to find a job here in Latvia (our jobless people level is one of the highest in EU), especially for the crippled (partly) disabled person. Now the landlord constantly is treating to evict me with my babies. I begged social services to help me, they refused. They said that if I’m at risk to become homeless, they’ll take my kids from me and put my kids in the orphanage. I’d rather die than let that happen. I now what it is. So if somebody see this, please help me with something, with anything.
Please help… I ask… No, I beg you.

Thank you all in advance. God bless you.
My name is Schelle, I’m a 25 year old single mother of two beautiful girls, living in Iowa. While I could spend the next 3 days typing out the tragedies and misfortunes that have plagued my existence on this planet, I would much rather express my gratitude for your taking out your precious time and energy reading my listing. I am in fact a very real person, who has seen nothing but darkness and misfortune consistently my entire life, and have recently decided to embark on a journey of self-exploration and enlightenment. Dubbed the queen of bad luck by anyone who has met my acquaintance, I have remained a steadfast beacon of hope for those who couldn’t always find the light, sitting with them in the dark when need be. Unfortunately, due to said misfortune I am currently facing an eviction from the home I poured my life into getting. I was diagnosed with CPTSD, BPD, GAD as well as MDD five years ago but was still determined to work, to make my own way, however, more recently, I was in a relationship for four years unknowingly with a narcissistic sociopath, who’s abuse, addiction and dedication to turmoil and spiteful destruction cost me every thing, and catapulted me into a total nervous breakdown, unheard of at my young age, it wracked my body with a seemingly never ending list of life threatening consequences. I now have seizures, kidney problems, and am losing my cognitive functioning and ability to be in working condition due in large part to the constant state of panic brought on by these events. I have no family aside from my mother who is on disability and lives across the country in Florida. I have lost everything more times than I have years on my life and am desperate to keep myself afloat. I have three days before I’m out on my behind in the snow, with none of me or my girl’s belongings since I have nowhere to keep them. Despite never having very much, I’ve always had an extremely altruistic soul, and will give the very shirt on my back if it means helping someone who needed it. Ive frequently gone broke assisting others but due to a strong work ethic and resilient nature, I’ve always been able to somehow keep my head above water until now. I’m aware that there are many people in desperate need out there and that my story is but a drop in the water that creates an immense ocean of need, and that you could be spending your money in much better service to a cancer patient or a Chilean child but I’m confident in that all the good I’ve put into the universe will be there in this my most desperate hour. Anything helps, and even if you don’t decide to donate to me, I am still grateful for your time. I wish everyone all the blessings and positivity this world has to offer. Thank you.

Hello, my name is Jasmine and I am currently a student trying to better my life.
My life has hit an all time low with the threat of eviction hanging over my family home. This is having such a negative effect on my parents, my three brothers and I. So bad in fact that my mother tried to overdose as she has hit rock bottom.
I am very sad that it has come to this but please help. No matter how small everything helps.
Thank you all.
This might seem trivial compared to some requests on here, but its worth a shot in my eyes. I’m Angela Steele, I”m 22 years old and in the past 4 months I’ve (along with hard work from my boyfriend) worked hard to take ourselves out of a situation where we were sleeping in a car, never knowing where our next meal or shower was coming from. Long story short, a friend let us move into a room in their house to keep us from sleeping in the car during the winter months. I am so grateful to them for letting us into their home. As almost everyone has experienced, life isnt always fair. My boyfriend lost his job due to work shortages (he works manual labor and the cold weather left no work to be done) and I just lost mine this morning because I am not certified for the job (I couldn’t afford the certification, its about 40 dollars). We are now about a week out from rent being due and are in a hard spot. I’ve applied for every loan I could think of and have been turned down by at least 40 different lenders. I’m asking for help on the internet because its my last option. We desperately need help with our rent and hopefully my certification so that I can return to work. Rent is about 400$ and my certification is about 40$. I know that some people have it worse, but I feel I’ve worked far too hard to see it all crumble before I tried everything possible. Thank you for reading, anything (even just a share) is so appreciated. God bless you and keep us in your prayers.
My name is Evelyn Canada, I am 27 years old and live in Austin Texas. I am in a rough place in life and figuring out how to get my life back together. I am currently living in my Honda Accord with my 9-year-old daughter. She means everything to me. I try to shield her as much as I can from the downfall I’ve taken but we are her and in this together. I was laid off from my recent job as an account executive and could not keep up with my bills and lost everything, When I say everything I mean my house, and all my things inside of it. We were left with some clothes and phone I drive my daughter to school every morning and go look for jobs, go to temp agencies, pick her up and find somewhere to park and eat for the night. It has gotten extremely hard for me to maintain the only payment I can afford to keep right now is my car and I don’t know how long that will be after the last payment that I made I have nothing left. I am currently trying to raise money to get into an apartment and get some furniture and continue to pay my car note at the very least. I am asking for help even though it takes everything in me to do so. I am hoping to raise $4000 in order to get into my apartment get a bed for my daughter and her some more clothes and be ok until finding another job. I know I will be able to fix my situation if I just get a little help. My mother passed when I was 15 due to illness and my father when I was 25 due to lung cancer, so I don’t have anyone else to ask or go to. So, I’m asking the world to help hoping someone will find it in their heart to understand my situation. I know what I’m asking is a lot to ask of a stranger but I feel this is the only option I have left. I have been to homeless programs in my area, churches and even city hall to talk to the mayor and no one is able to assist with my situation. If anyone can find it in their heart to help me get back up from this fall it would be greatly appreciated.
Dear people willing to help,
Hello, I am a grandmother raising a 7 year old grandson who has Autism Spectrum Disorder. It has been very difficult for me with no support from the parents. I have been struggling all last year to balance work and making sure he gets to therapy. Most of the time I had to choose between work and getting him to therapy. I missed a lot of work that is how I got behind in my rent of 4,800. Once I got behind I could not catch up although I was paying every month. My management company (Premier Property Management) has been very patient. I have already been to court and was given until the 3rd of Jan 2018 to pay but I know if I have the money by the morning of Jan 08, 2018 in there office I will be ok. I am able to maintain my household I just need help getting over this hurdle. I now have a job in the morning, which allows me to get him to his appointments. I am asking all my Christian sisters and brother to help and if you cannot please pray for us that the Lord will intervene. I welcome all help I just understand the power of prayer.

Hello. My name is Miranda, I am 26, and I have court coming up to be evicted this Thursday. I am currently taking care of my niece, she is 4 years old. My fiance, who lives with us also, lost his job 2 months ago due to pneumonia. He was hospitalized and out of work due this. He is also disabled, which is so hard to find work due to this. He is blind in one eye, with a broken pelvis from a car accident. He struggles with PTSD because of this. We can’t take care of us 3 and household essentials on just my check. I work full time, assisting those with disabilities. The pay in that field, as you know, is not the best. But I love what I do. It’s winter time, we are currently in the middle of a blizzard, and we have no where to go, no one to ask. We have tried literally everyone we know but as you can imagine, times are hard for everyone. I am hoping this is just a test and God handles it very soon. I’m all out of strength and tears. Someone please help! I know I’m not the only one in need & I thank God everyday for just waking up & giving me another chance to make it right. This is the scariest situation I’ve ever dealt with. Our rent is $600 & we need to come up with 2 months worth and the electric which cut off this morning in the blizzard. I appreciate any and all help. God bless you all.
Please help me!
Hi to anyone who may read this,
I have been struggling for so long I can’t remember the last time I woke up without my thoughts being consumed by money.
I roughly need £10,000 to be able to clear my family debt, that has come about purely due to my ongoing illness. I can’t describe the burden I feel knowing how much my mum has to struggle to support me. She works like a slave, despite being a pensioner, she still works 12hour shifts as a nurse to try to recover financially for me.
I can’t open my post anymore. I have a drawer filled with debt letters and my poor Mum is the only one trying to clear it for me.
My life has been riddled with hardships and I realise that is the case for many, many people.
I don’t believe I deserve help more than anyone else on this site. I’m so desperate though and if anyone is in a position that they can help me in anyway, I will be eternally grateful. I hope that one day I will be in a better position and I will aim to pay you back, in time.
My Mum has been so busy trying to help me that she has fallen behind with her mortgage monthly repayments, to top off everything a relative fraudulently took credit out in my mums name. My mum is such an angel that she won’t do anything to take action, my mum won’t ever ask for help. My mum doesn’t deserve this and I can’t do anything.
please, please can someone help me and my family. Please
You will be saving me, you really would.
you would save my home and my mums health. I beg someone for help.
2017 was treating me pretty good until this summer. I was working for a company for 2 years, received a promotion to restaurant manager, moved into a new apartment, and then everything fell apart. In July, I was diagnosed with pancreatitis and needed to have surgery to remove my gall bladder. I was medically taken out of work for 2 weeks at a time that I needed to be there, and when I returned I was let go. At the time, I was told that I was not performing the functions of my job, but later was confided by a friend that my boss blamed me for his mistake. I was fired with no previous warnings, and in fact made to sign a verbal, written and termination warning all at the same time. I applied for Unemployment Benefits and was granted them, but I had an overpayment on file of $3000 from 15 years ago. I tried to plead with my state that I had no income at all, but was told that any benefit I was to receive had to go to the overpayment first. I lived for three months eating from food banks, dumpsters, and soup kitchens. Also during those three months, I did not have the ability to pay rent or my monthly bills. I was still trying to pay my security deposit when I was let go from my job. It is now the end of December. I am one month in on going to school for my MBA, and I just had the gall bladder surgery on December 18th. Things have been starting to look brighter, but I am still in so much debt with my landlord, and monthly bills that I need to pay to continue my education online. If I were able to raise $5000.00 to help me succeed I would be lifted out of the hole I am in. I feel like I can see over the top of that hole at times and then life seems to kick me back down into it. I thank you for your time and anything you can provide. paypal.me/SGray34
My name is Scott and I’m 44 years old. In July of 2017 I was fired from my job without any notice, which I was later told by co-workers that were still with the company, was due to my boss blaming me for his mistake. He was shortly let go for a different mistake he made and had no else to blame. One week before being fired I was diagnosed with pancreatitis due to gall stones. On Dec. 18th, 2017 I had my gall bladder removed, but now need another surgery to fix my ulnar nerve in my left hand. I had broken my wrist in 3 places in 2014 and had to have a metal plate and screws put into my wrist. One or more screws is now aggravating my ulnar nerve and the last two fingers on my left hand are numb and I am losing strength in that hand. I have not been able to fully pay my rent in 5 months, nor any of my monthly bills in that time. I am looking to be able to get $5000.00 in help with rent. My rent is $1000.00 a month, and my landlord has been patient with me, but is now having to start the eviction process. My monthly bills are my phone and electric. My phone service was disconnected about 3 months ago due to non-payment and my electric is due to be cut off within a month for the same reason. I feel horrible having to ask for help, as I have always been proud of being able to support my life on my own. I have prayed everyday, sometimes several times a day to have a ladder and let me see over the edge of the hole I’m in, and although my faith is strong, it’s only been keeping my head above water and I feel about to drown. I have anxiety issues and depression caused over my financial situation and I come to anyone reading this as a last resort. If you have taken time out of your day to read this, thank you so very much and I hope you can say a prayer for me to find hope. If you are willing and able to help me, again I thank you and it’s something that can’t be said enough. I am in desperate need of $5000.00 in rent, and $300.00 for my utilities.

God Bless and have a great day! Thank you!!!!
Wishing all a very Happy Holiday Season & A Healthy, Happy, and Prosperous New Year.
Something unimaginable is about to happen to my family. Two weeks ago, our landlord took us to Eviction Court, and we lost! We filed a Paupers Appeal with the Eviction Court, which the court approved. One of the stipulations of filing a Paupers Appeal is that we are required to pay one months to the court for two reasons. The first reason is to keep our Paupers Appeal active within the court system. The second reason is that if this “Rental Deposit” is not paid into the court by the end of business on the provided day, the landlord can go directly to the initial presiding Judge and ask for a writ of eviction, which the Judge will order and sign that day.
Our time to make this “Rental Deposit” with the eviction court was up today at 4:30pm! My wife and I were able to come up with $725.00 as of now. We need to come up with $1,100.00 for the “Rental Deposit”, which means we are $375.00 short of the court mandated Paupers Appeal Rental Deposit/Bond.
This $375.00 is the amount of money we need to raise by 9:00 am Thursday, December 28th.
If we are not able to raise the $375.00 by morning, we may actually be forced out of our home by the sheriff on Friday, 12/29. As you have already probably guessed, we will be homeless as we do not have another place to live.
Information regarding my family and myself is warranted at this time. My wife, who will be turning 50 in February, is disabled due to numerous serious health issues which include multiple heart attacks, other circulatory issues including the need for angioplasty & stents in her neck, around her heart as well as for both legs. In addition she has had numerous strokes, which has caused some long term mental issues such as speech issues, short term memory loss, and an overall lack of self confidence as a consequence. All of these medical issues have caused another issue as well, depression. My wife has other, critical, medical problems as well, which I would prefer to keep private, for my wife’s benefit.
We have a 13 year old daughter as well. My daughter seems to be intelligent on many fronts – while also exhibiting a lack of common sense far to often. She is in 8th grade and her last report card included straight A’s, with the exception of a single B.
Myself, well things have been much better for me and my family than they have been for the past decade. We were doing barely better than surviving until Hurricane Harvey hit the Houston area at the beginning of September. I was working out of state prior to the arrival of Harvey, and requested that I be allowed to fly home to be with my family prior to Harvey’s arrival. I was told that, “you can go home to be with your family during the hurricane, but you need to be back here by Tuesday.” Well the airports in Houston were closed so I could not get out on Tuesday, additionally, I could not leave my little neighborhood due to severe flooding until late Wednesday evening. I lost my job, but I did the right thing – for the right reasons, so I do not regret my choice to be with my family as Harvey wrought its strength and damages upon the Houston area.
It took nearly a month before I was able to find another job, where I am still employed. Unfortunately, this job has a limit of 40 hours, no OT allowed, but just as important – it only pays $10.00 per hour. There have been many weeks where I was not even allowed to work 40 hours a few of these were limited to under 30 hours per week.
With the low rate of pay and the limited number of hours available, I have not been able to afford to pay all of our monthly bills, including our rent. We were able to get rental assistance in October in the amount of $650.00 from 3 different local organizations, a Godsend! In November, we were able to find another source of rental assistance for the entire amount of November’s rent, $1,100.00. Actually, our landlord told this organization that the rent was $1,800.00, which the organization paid. We provided them a copy of our lease, which showed the amount of rent due every month at $1,100. Our landlord told this organization that we owed late fees, in the amount of $700.00. The organizations response was that they do not pay late fees, both orally (my wife and I were in the office during this phone call) as well as within an agreement that the landlord was required to sign in order for this organization to provide any funds to our landlord, which she signed and returned via email the next morning.
Well, as our landlord agreed that this organization does not pay late fees, what happened to the $700.00 overpayment? Our landlord applied it to our late fees. To make matters worse, during our eviction proceedings the presiding judge said on the record that the landlord’s application of these funds to our late payments was acceptable to him/the court. As we live in Texas, a landlord friendly state, the judges agreement to the application of funds to late fees may seem proper and right. While I am not a lawyer, landlords are only allowed to seek payments for rent only in eviction court, any other existing financial issues between the landlord and tenant must be dealt with in a different court, at a different proceeding, which includes late fees.
In addition to these points, our landlord has not provided us with a receipt of rent paid, or a copy of our rental account, since October 5th.
The structure regarding late fees in our lease states that rent is due on the 16th, if it is not paid by that date, a $50 Late Fee is assessed at that time. In addition, for each and every day that follows without the rent being paid, a daily late charge of $5.00 is added. It is impossible for us to owe $700.00 in late fees, as prior to 9/16/17, we actually had overpaid our rent in the amount of $10.00. We have petitioned to court to make our landlord provide us all receipts as well as a complete accounting of our rental account to prove that the the late fees were overcharged, as well as the issue that they never should have been allowed due to the existing oral and written agreements between our landlord and this rental assistance agency, or approved by the presiding judge on the record.
We have valid and legal grounds to fight and overturn the eviction, but we have dire and urgent needs to raise $375.00 by morning.
Please help us stay in our home.
I have been living on Faith since Harvey, and it has been tough.
Please help my family by doing something I have been struggling to do, namely providing for them. This reality is extremely difficult for me to deal with, but things that do not kill us only make us stronger!

Hello….my name is Tausha and I am desperately seeking help. I am the mom of a brilliant, beautiful 14-year-old daughter and we are in grave danger of being evicted right at the “most wonderful time of the year.”
We just moved into this beautiful home in October (after having to move from our previous residence because the owners were moving back into it) and it was extraordinarily stressful financially. Even through all the turmoil of moving, we were very excited to be settling into our new place. I am a server in a restaurant and unfortunately, business had been slow so money was already tight but I was looking forward to November and December, when business typically picks up. Well, not only did business not pick up, my hours were cut dramatically. What little money I was bringing in was just enough to keep the lights and water on and food on the table. I could not pay the rent in November and now December’s is also due. I was finally laid off just last night….three weeks exactly before Christmas.
I am devastated. I have nowhere else to turn. My biggest concern is that (besides Christmas being around the corner!) of my daughter’s life being thrown into chaos. She is a freshman in high school and taking all honors classes. She is on the Principal’s List, ranked 24th out of 344 students and already being looked at by colleges for her athletic ability. My number one priority is keeping her stable and focused. I don’t want her to have to concern herself with any kind of disruption.
While the restaurant has been slow, I have been seeking other employment without luck. However, I have been learning a new skill. I was introduced to someone who is a day trader and they offered to help me learn how to do it. As it happens, I’m pretty good at it! The problem is, I can’t start trading live yet because I don’t have the 250.00 minimum deposit for the trading platform. If I could get that deposit made, I can start trading and stop the fruitless job hunt! The upside to trading vs. a traditional 9-5 is that I will be able to be home with my daughter during these vital years. It is going to change our lives in such an incredible way!
So here is what I am pleading for….I need 1900.00 to pay my rent for November and December. If you would like to also donate any or all of the 250.00 I need to start my trading career, that would be such a blessing and I would love to be able to pay it back, even with a little extra! Please consider helping us this holiday season….I would be grateful beyond words!

I really want to learn to fish….
Have a great day,
Hi I need a little help. I lost my job in my small town 2 months ago and I am part time employed now with an hour commute to the city. I don’t make enough to afford the commute cost but know working is better than not. My son is 8 and he and I are a strong team. He knows to call me a soon as he gets home from school because he has to do his homework and stay home until I can get back from work, it saves money for him to be home alone for a few without a sitter. I have been scrapping by and have run out of options but to ask for help. I need $800 to get through this transition- I found a place that is closer for a shorter commute but that won’t be available until mid December and I’m falling behind on my car payment and insurance now just to keep a roof over our heads. I am a hard worker and have been a beacon of hope in this time of need to my son, but at night I’m scared. I can’t afford to live in our apt for much longer and we need to relocated just outside the county line to make it work.I can’t sit back and think that I can’t do this on my own but I am humbled to say as such. I hope someone can help. I can pay the money back. This thing called time keeps kicking my butt with late fees. I need this help. It’s just us and our cat.We need this help.Thank you for listening to my story.
I have about 4 days to pay my rent which is $330. I don’t want to lose my home, I just lost my job. I tried going to social services but they said they can’t help us for another year. Our local church said they can only pay around $50- $70 of our bill.
I dont want to be homeless, please, someone help me.
PLEASE? PLEASE? PLEASE? This is my only hope and my last attempt to salvage our lives! www.paypal.me/brokenbella Please help me? Anything, any amount, any at all is going to help us so much!! And THANK YOU SO, SO, SO MUCH!
I was married for 30 years to an extremely violent man who has broken both of my eye sockets at once, ribs, arms, pressed knives to my throat and his last act was to point a loaded shotgun at our son who has TBI, (traumatic brain injury), told him he was going to die, and pulled the trigger. The only reason my son is still alive is because the safety was latched on that gun. I have had him arrested at least 10 times and now my husband is in prison for 4 years for all of his abuse and violence. I spent 30 YEARS trying to make our marriage work and until he was removed from the house, I honestly had no idea of just how bad I was living. When he was gone, it felt like this super huge relief went out the door with him. Only now I’m stuck in an aftermath of three decades of his irresponsibility and neglect. He left owing a ton of bills and I managed to catch up on a lot of it, but for three decades I was completely dependent on him and never knew he lied and didn’t pay the bills, and while I have been trying my best our truck was repossessed and I have to walk everywhere. I don’t complain about walking, but people don’t really understand that it is extremely time consuming and I have many life issues that need 100% of my attention and I am spreading myself very thin trying to do it all alone. With my son’s condition we spend days walking to doctor appointments and I’ve been working very hard trying to get him disability, but it takes a bit of time. He’s so close to approval, I just need somehow to get some help until it goes through shortly. Then they said he will get a lump sum and his monthly benefit. My big problem is here and now though. I owe my landlord money and if I can even get some of it, he will work with me through to the point of Mikey getting disability but he wants some now and I have nothing. Once disability happens we can go forward with life. My son needs my care constantly and it’s really been rough trying to balance everything. I have been juggling all of the money problems with the small income I have and now I am going to be homeless by Christmas, with a disabled son and not even a vehicle to sleep in, and I’m just lost! I am so scared and worried, I don’t know what to do. If we are lucky we get one meal in a day, and I am not exaggerating, we only get to eat supper if it’s a good day. I have no shampoo, detergent, toothpaste, nothing and I have to wash our clothing in the bathtub. I can’t pay to use the washer and dryer where we live, I just honestly don’t have a quarter. We don’t have t.v. or any luxuries at all. The only way I can do this and be on the Internet is because I get a small bit of data each month on my free government phone. I have no family left to turn to because my little brother passed away in his sleep when he was only 39, two years later, my grandma, and a couple of years ago two days before Thanksgiving my mom passed away at her work from an aortic aneurism of the abdomen and she was only 63. I never knew my father and my oldest son is literally on the other side of the world, on a ship because he is in the Navy. I’ve called Catholic Charities, Salvation Army, DPSS, domestic violence programs and agencies, and there is literally no help out there. All of the domestic violence agencies give you a list of phone numbers and when you call those numbers you get new numbers, until it goes full circle right back to the initial person you called seeking help. This is exactly what happened to me. I called 211 many times, Salvation Army gave us some food, and the Community Pantry gave us some food, but everyone is out of money until 2018, and by then we will be homeless. I am only asking because ” I HAVE TO”, I have no choice but to beg or I’m going to lose any little bit I have left of life. I have tried to help my community too. I’ve volunteered for Salvation Army serving holiday meals, at our public libraries request I went to city council meeting and spoke in support of keeping their doors open. I’ve written to congress for them as well, trying to get some state aid so they didn’t have to close. I also volunteered unloading trucks for a food bank called HOPE. I honest to goodness try to be a good citizen. I don’t use drugs, I’m not a criminal, we need help. We are good people and stuck in a bad spot, is there any hope at all? We can’t fix this life unless someone helps us, and then someday I want to help others. I don’t want to loose this little home, I want to make it a home now that the violence is gone. I want to help other people, I am by nature a caretaker of everyone, but if I don’t get help it’s just going to get worse and worse and harder and harder. I would like to get our lives fixed and start a program that has actual funds available to fix these types of situations for others. If my life ever gets going right, I want to take courses at our college so I can make a great impact in the community helping others. There are literally no domestic violence organizations in my city or near me at all. I truly am at your mercy, begging for your help, I really am. Please let me know if you can help. I’m doing everything possible to keep us protected too, the district attorney got us two orders of permanent protection served to him in prison. I want to divorce him while he’s there so I may never have to see him again. Or our son. There is an order of protection for him too. There is no Thanksgiving or Christmas to look forward to this year, we are not that lucky, if we get to stay in our home we would be blessed for every holiday to come. I’ve been trying to think of how to handle my eviction when the court tells me I have to go, I wouldn’t even be able to pay and store the little belongings we have left and pay for motels. We will end up on the streets. Please, please, please, please, please let me know. I already have the 3-Day Notice and if I don’t get rent money, they said the next step is a court date. I’m so upset! Thank you so much and be blessed to every single one of you all!
I am a 35 year old mother of an 11 year old son, and we live together with my boyfriend (father of my child) of 16 years , who has Cerebral Palsy. I lost my job unexpectedly 2 months ago, we have managed to stay afloat on his monthly SSI payment and food assistance through the state. We applied for cash assistance but, were told we are $70 over the income limit to receive cash benefits. His medical condition has gotten worse recently, which has caused me much concern and led me to apply for a job as his personal caregiver. We’re currently waiting for approval from his insurance and the state. After approval we find out what my max payable hours will be and I can start my paid training. This could take up to a month to process everything. In the meantime I am doing odd jobs and applying for part-time work close to home.
Currently we are 1 payment behind on our electric/heating bill, and a month behind on our rent plus late fees. Our landlady suggested we apply for housing, which we recently got the paperwork for, we are mailing it in this week. Of course there is a waiting list but we have been informed that my boyfriends disability will get him moved up the list faster than most people. My landlady works with people on housing which is why she has been trying to work with us. She has let us pay late for several months now but recently gave us notice that we need to get caught up this month or she will be forced to proceed with the eviction process. This is because she and her husband are private owners and her husband has recently fallen seriously ill. They need the money to pay his medical bills. We do have $300 tword rent and although our notice is a 3 day notice she is willing to give us another week. All that being said, I am asking for help getting caught up on our rent and possibly our electric bill. We’d much rather stay where we are, then have to try to find a place to live and move in the middle of winter. This would take the stress off my boyfriend, who is constantly worried that we’re not going to have a place to live come Christmas. My son told Santa that he didn’t want a bunch of toys for Christmas, he just wanted us to have a home. So here I am, asking for a Christmas miracle. Hoping that someone out there can help us keep our home.
Thank you for taking time to read this. Bless you.
To whom it may concern:
I am reaching out today, to simply find some assistance. I am a 29 year old mother of an 8 year old son. I am currently engaged and recently moved. I have really been struggling financially since I had my son. However, right now I’m at an all time low. After living with my grandma for 2 years, we decided to try looking for a place outside of Maryland. After all, Maryland was becoming way too much for us to handle and afford. We applied for an apartment in North Carolina and we were surprisingly approved! With some careful thought and some what of a game plan, we decided to sign a lease. Unfortunately amongst signing our lease, we got some bad news from a family member. Because of this we pushed our move in back 2 weeks. This was Mid- August, right when all the hurricanes started hitting. By doing this we ended up having to come up with another months rent up front. At this point we had already paid the security deposit (which was 1 months rent) and had locked in a rental truck because prices had gone up due to the high demand for them in Texas/Florida. All of this caused us to spend way more before the move than we intended. We had a game plan, a budget plan and I was promised some at home work from the company I had been working with over the last 4 years. Unfortunately I was not given any work through September and was only given 4 days of work through October. My fiancé found a job, however it doesn’t pay well. The few paychecks he received we’re enough to cover our car note, to continue working, gas and groceries. On October 29th, we received a court notice for an eviction hearing. In attempts to not go to court, we’ve reached out to many family members. As well as banks, loan vendors, and even churches. Our monthly rent is $1152…With it now being November, we owe 2 months rent + a bunch of filing fees/court costs BY NOVEMBER 17! We owe $2600 to clear everything and have maybe $100 in our account. We have not had a full fridge once since we’ve gotten here. My son lives on dollar store snacks, PBJ, and cereal. Our bills are a month behind. I let our cells get cut off to pay for car insurance and groceries. With all of this going on, all I think of is my son. He is 8, but is the size of a 14 year old. He has not ONE pair of jeans to wear and it’s getting cold. I recently discovered his toes are bleeding because his shoes are to small (after 4 months). I am having a very very hard time finding work and making ends meet. I’m so afraid to lose my apartment. We’re nowhere near any family and don’t even know this area to well. It’s getting cold outside and I do not want my son to witness this. I’m a very hard worker and my head is on straight. I took a leap of faith, let stress and fear get the best of me and depended on all the wrong things. Somebody please help me get out of this mess! My time is running out!
I will forever be grateful for this and hope to return the favor to someone in need one day!
I met Samuel (50 yrs old)over a year ago when he and his family moved next door. He was a homemaker taking care of his mother who had several failing illnesses. She recently passed away Sept. 18th. Since passing away, Samuel has been served with an eviction unless he can pay three months of rent with late fees for each month and the court cost for the eviction. He also has had no utilities for three months. Samuel will have to vacate the premises if not paid and will have nowhere to live. He is currently trying to work odd jobs but being a small rural area, unemployment rate is high and it is hard, especially without a vehicle and not making enough to pay off the expenses. The resources here is hard to get the assistance needed and there is not much funding here. He still has medical expenses from his mother, no vehicle to get around for jobs and the bus system stops operating here at 6 pm.
Samuel needs help with being able to keep the place to live or a down payment and first month’s rent on a place to live, food, miscellaneous items, and a vehicle.
Samuel is a great person with a big heart and will help anyone he can and now needs help himself. Please help with any amount possible to save a person from becoming homeless and having a chance to start life over.
Samuel needs at least $15000 to help him get back on track and start his life over since he has lost not only his mother but his father and wife.
I have also done a fund if interested: https://igg.me/at/6sRP6uR5-nU and paypal: paypal.me/lasere
My mother is 38 years old and has been a waitress since before she had me at age 18. My mother recently had surgery on BOTH ankles 2 years back and one of the surgeries ended up damaging the nerves in her leg for good. My mother has been applying for disability for 2 years now and has been denied time and time again, even with 7 doctors on her side vouching that she cannot work in her condition. My mother has been working in her condition for months now to keep herself afloat with the help of myself, but with my hours getting cut at work and her condition worsening (fibromyalgia), she has fallen a month behind on rent. Her landlord is about to evict her if she does not show $475 very soon. I’m going to help what I can but its not enough. No local churches will help because she doesn’t have a child under 18 and the other assistance programs are out of funds. I currently live with my friend and her parents and cannot bring my mother in under their roof. I cannot let my disabled mother be homeless in the cold this winter and I’m having a hard time coping with this ongoing issue. I got a new fulltime job and I’m planning on moving in with her until she gets her disability so that this never happens again. Im not a beggar and have never asked for a thing in my life from strangers but she needs help bad. Please consider donating to my PayPal for her rent. I will send a picture of the eviction warning and you can even send a check directly to her landlord if you’d like.
This year is not a good year for me. My mother-in-law came to me to ask money to help her with her surgery, and so, I did. As I found out, she used the money to ran off with her boyfriend to California. I’m devastated because I was hoping that she’ll pay me back so that I can pay my car. And so, my car payment’s late. My work wasn’t busy this summer, so they cut my hours. Now, I’m having problems paying my utilities and rent. Electricity and water already send me 10 day notice that they will cut of my utilities. I applied for personal loans, but with my 300 credit score, everyone denied me. Even some payday loan denied me, except for one, but they only gave me $300, just enough to pay my utilities. Then, came the biggest disaster of all, my employer laid me off. Ask relatives & friends for help, but they all turned their backs on me. Eviction notice came. I’ve used my last paycheck so we can get our new place. Our rent is cheaper. Been looking for a job everyday, for more than 2 months but no one’s hiring me. Applied for personal loans but got denied because of my very poor credit. Now I’m down to my last $100 cash in my bank, with 3 children to support. My car is already 3 months late on payment. About to get repo in 10 days.
Please…..I’m begging anyone that has a good heart, please help me and my children…..I just need money to pay my car, my rent, utilities and food, just until I get another job…….please, I’m begging anyone to help us.
Please send help to my paypal
My name is Tracia and I live alone with my dog Bella. This is the first I am doing this but as it is right now, I don’t have much of a choice. My family is on the poor side and they look to me for help. Now I need help and I have nowhere to turn.
The home which I have rented I am now 3 months behind in rental payment because I have gotten sick (I have Endometriosis and I was recently diagnosed with Connective Tissue Disease) and now i’m at risk of being evicted. All my utilities are also in dire arrays. My power is already on the list to be disconnected, my water is also at risk, the internet which i depend on to work will be bar tomorrow and the company i took my bed and refrigerator from on a payment plan has given me one week to clear the arrears or they will be coming to collect the items.
I currently owe $2000 on my rent, $200 on my power, $150 on my water, $80 on my internet and $250 for the furniture company. I have been trying everything I can to get the funds to take care of all these with no luck. I am now desperate.
I know you don’t know me but I am asking you please to help me get through this very rough time. The stress of this all has made me feel so ill I barely want to get out of bed in the mornings.
Please! I’m begging for your help as i’v ran out of time. Thank you so much in advance.
Hello friends I am Nicole. I was doing research on ways to get emergency rental assistance and by “coincidence” I came across the link for this site. This is my first time using a service like this but I am sure as mostly everyone else on this pages, options have run dry. I have two loving children that I would lay my life on the line for, otherwise I would not be requesting help. A bit about my life, I have been the sole financial provider for my boys pretty much their whole lives. Their father sees them two days a week but has never been able to hold a job long enough for child support to even process. I have no family and never really did. Left home young and have been estranged from my mom ever since. I have always worked hard to support my children even when I felt like I could no longer deal with life I didn’t have an option. If I wanted to give my boys any kind of life I can not and will not give up…a few years back I was laid off from my job and the engine in my car both died in the same week! I tried my best to find work given the fact I had to kids to get to daycare/school and a job to search for on a bus route (virtually impossible)…I was unable to find full time work and we lost our home of 5 years..we ended bouncing from home to home for a few months since our plan A failed it..in the process more than half our belongings were stolen or lost this was one of if not THE hardest thing I had to watch my children go through, while every single comfort was torn from them and I could see how it effected them..my heart still breaks thinking about it…during our not so secure stays at friends homes and trudging through snow in the morning and evening…I watched my children cry and shiver…couldn’t even push a stroller in the CT winters It was getting colder and I knew I couldn’t keep staying diff places with nothing to offer… so I signed up with the local shelter and we were chosen for a vacancy in the shelters family unit! God is GOOD..They gave us 4 months stay at no cost! I ended up getting local job as a server and saved every dime! I managed to get a car and enough money for a security deposit by the time we had to be out. Go MOM! We moved into a place that we were at for a few years (within those few years I worked my way up the career ladder and became a manager of a sub shop, I transferred jobs to a newly opening business about 2 years later.. there I was offered a better position and more money) everything seemed great and more good news our public housing application finally got chosen and we were moving to a MUCH bigger place for $100 dollars less a month!..I had a decent job and it was new opportunity for growth, or so I thought. …It has been about 6 months in our public housing unit and my job I struggled at for a year hoping the kinks would work out and it would get on its feet as a new business I couldn’t have been more wrong…I had to deal with harassment, sexism, workplace bullying and favoritism and lack of hours, couldn’t get more than 20hrs while my boss gave 16 yr old girls 35 hours because I have reason to believe he may have been a child predator. I confronted the toxic enviroment over and over with higher ups and my GM and nothing changed, ever, it was all a sick joke…..I could not take the stress and continue to destroy my spirit being around the people that worked there, managing a business where employees stole merchandise and had no respect for customers or other staff….and they were never called out by anyone but me but instead given more hours! So I became the bad guy which did not help. I did the wrong thing financially and I quit! I made a decision a month ands a half ago and I am facing those consequences now, but I don’t regret removing myself from the toxic environment because I know all things will work out eventually…I have a new seasonal job that I start next week but since I have been out of work for a month and a half and have not been able to pay any bills…I am in over my head and I am remaining faithful but I promised my kids that we would NEVER again have to lose our home and live house to house like we did for those few months….walking in that a snow up to our knees and being completely misplaced…I cant look at my kids and tell them our brand new home will be lost I am behind and facing eviction..tears stream down as I write this because I am a woman of my word and I feel like this time I may have no choice but to break that promise and I do not know how to do that!…I am in need of two months rent ..my rent is $589 a month and in 4 days I will be two months beind I also need help with car insurance/daycare/utilities but rent in my main priority…I would be grateful for any amount that can help as stated before I do start my new job next week but being in this situation facing eviction and Christmas next month I feel so lost… More than anything I need prayers, if your reading this but can not give, please pray for me and my families financial situation..I have no unemployment and exhausted every option I know…help me keep my promise to my children…Thank you for taking the time to hear my story and I pray that whomever decides to donate that you are blessed in ways you could never imagine for being a saving grace…Thank you for your time and always remain humble and kind GOD BLESS…-Nicole
Hello my name is Fontane I am a LPN of 20 years and the single mother of 3 children and one grandchild who has recently fallen on hard times by losing my job of 8 years. I lost my job at the end of august which caused me to fall behind on all of my payments including my car payment and most importantly rent. I found a new permanent job finally but in the process my car was repo’d, and i fell behind on two months rent which prompted my apartment to file an eviction. It seemed as if everything was falling apartment at once i owe in total 4,875.81 but i am only asking for help with about 3,000. I have no where to go with my children, no family to count on and no where to store all of our things. We will lose everything which will be devastating. My two youngest children are scheduled to graduate high school next june and I also have a 4 year old granddaughter who I care for.
Any donation amount is appreciated im just trying to get through these hard times.
Please read!!! Hi. I am a 30 year old married nurse of 1 child. My husband recently had job set backs and unexpectedly lost 3 family members within 2 months. While I have spent the last 6 years taking care of others, I recently found myself at one doctors appt after another, being blindsided with a diagnosis chronic illness. We currently live 1000 miles away from family and plan to move home to live with family to get back on our feet. However with a car accident, child illness, and loss of wages for both of us, we can’t even make our current rent for this month. Our savings have been depleted and we need to pay our rent tomorrow, as well as come up with the money to move home in 3 weeks. I can pay the money back in a month or so, but at this time we are sick with stress and physically at wits end. We have turned off cable, cell phones and cut all extras out. Please help us stay in our place a few more weeks and then move back across country to family. Thank you.
Hello, my name is Jeremy Mudford and I wanted to start by saying that I know that my plea may not seem as desperate as other ones on here but I am out of options to try and get help from anywhere. I am currently 14 weeks behind in my rent totaling $3,780 (AUD) and have been threatened by my landlord for (likely) the last time to pay up.
Why I am so desperate is my mother has been sick (Hodgkin’s lymphoma) and I have been helping her with medical bills while putting myself and my girlfriend in trouble, though I haven’t explained this to my mother as it would cause her so much grief to know where the money has come from. I have two beautiful cats and a girlfriend that I love so much and I don’t want to lose this place as I really have no where else to turn to.
I also have no other means of asking for or getting help from anywhere. My mum is the last of my family and I am unemployed but hopefully have work soon as I have just become a qualified AIN (assistant in nursing – aged care)
Please contact me by email if there is any questions but any amount would be helpful to offer him and am even happy to show proof of the money going to my landlord if requested.
Kindest regards, Jeremy Mudford
I honestly don’t know what to write on here. But here I go my troubles started in July of this year when my lease for my room was about to be up when I was hit with an eviction notice to vacate the premises in 24 hours. I grabbed all my stuff and put them in a storage unity.
Ever since then I and my girlfriend were living on the streets and under a bridge in my car until we got a temporary home we lived in that home for a month and a half working to pay for our new home in a different city. I gathered enough money for the first month’s rent in our new place so I went ahead and paid our new landlord and we moved in the following weeks but an expecting expense came along with my girlfriend. She brought her 1-year-old son with her and now I have another mouth that I have to worry about. Our first month was ok I was putting out a hundred applications a week and getting a few callbacks but never got a job to stick. My girl got a job at Donkin Donuts but that wasn’t enough to help pay the rent and my car note. So she got me a job working with her and I just started to bearly make enough to pay for what needs to be paid on my renters portal I currently owe the apartment $735 which is supposed to keep rising $5 every day that your late with your payment but for some reason the price has stopped going up and I believe that I have another eviction notice in the works. Not to mention I am now two months behind on my car payments and have been looking for a way to pay it all off before I get evicted and lose my car all at the same time the balance that needs to be satisfied for my car right now is $500 and my next months rent is going to be added to the current balance in a couple of days.
I’m in need of at least $5,500 to right now to help satisfy my rent, and most of my car note and some repairs on the car that seems to be on her last leg of life again before I need another motor. I don’t know when they will serve me the papers for the eviction but for certain my car will need to be fixed imediatly.
If you guy’s where to kindly help me out I will eternally be grateful for all that you guy’s have done for me.

I am currently going through a divorce because my wife decided to leave me for another man. I moved to a house closer to my work, about 20 minutes from my sons mom. She is making it difficult for me as it is, trying to get as much custody of my son as she can and limiting the amount of time that I can see him. She is currently trying to claim that I am unstable so that she can get even more custody, when all I want is to be a part of my sons life.
When I moved closer to my job, I thought it to be wise to get a roomate in hopes to ease the stress on my pockets. However, my roomate failed to communicate with me and has only paid a total of $200 of his share to the landlord. He has also disappearead for the last two weeks and I cant get ahold of him. I now have until 9am Thursday, October 19th, 2017 to come up with the $1800 in back rent and late fees he has failed to pay.
If I am unable to get this paid by then, then they will be evicting me and my son and it will give my wife more grounds to try and prove I am unstable. I will also be homeless and no where to go that is close to my son.
I am capable of affording the place on my own, however, the roomate failed to communicate with me and now two months worth of back rent plus late fees and other charges are due. I beg that you guys find it in your hearts to help me out so that me and my son are not evicted and that I can continue to have a relatioship with my son.
Please and Thank You,
Due to an unforseen hour reduction at work and a slow un-employment process, my rent fell in the arrears and I am facing eviction. The apartment complex is willing to work with me, but will need to catch up in full to stay. No payment plan is available with the property owner. So I come to you looking for any help you can provide, so that I can get back on my feet. My deadline is 10/25/2017 to come up with $1860.00 to square up on rent, late fees, and court costs.
Now that hours are coming back, catching up will not be an issue as long as the roof stays over my head until the paychecks start rolling in. Eventually my end goal is to take my friend up on his offer to move to Vancouver, BC and start a position in the company that he works for. To make a long story short, to get my visa, I need an ID, to get my ID I need a certified birth certificate, to get the certificate you need somewhere for them to send it and then money. But that’s my dream, for now I would find it a blessing to just keep my apartment so that I could have a chance to get there.
Attached is my paypal.me link for my business paypal account. To much of a hassle to convert it back to a personal account so I gave up on it.
I hope all is well with you. Please read this page with your heart. I am female in my early 30’s the works full time for DFCS in my state. I’m a very private person and am honestly very embarrassed by my situation. I live paycheck to paycheck and have to carefully budget out my money but at the beginning of September, a direct debit for my student loans came out of my checking account after I tried numerous times to cancel the authorization. I knew my student loan payment was going up and that I couldn’t afford it. I applied for a reduction but was of course still responsible for the higher payment until the reduction was approved. The direct debit has since been finally removed and my direct debit was finally canceled correctly but the money could not be refunded and that created a snowball effect.
I have recently been approved for and started driving for Uber. I also am looking into other ways to make passive income so that I’m never in this position again. But right now I am desperately fighting to not become homeless. I help people all day every day and I am very disheartened by the fact that I can’t help myself the way I want right now. It has also hurt me to find out how unwilling people are to help another human being based on assumptions. We will all need help one day. Right now it is my turn and I hope that whoever is reading this will be moved to help.
I created this donation page because I am 24 hours away from being evicted and I have nowhere to do. My goal is only $2,102. This includes September and October rent ($901 per month), the late fee for September and October ($100 per month) and the eviction fee for September ($200). I am only asking for a donation of $1 and if you want to give more it will be greatly appreciated.
Again I’m not a scam. I’m not going to use the money raised for anything other than rent. I’m only doing this because I have a dire need and not here for greed.
Dear people willing to help,
I’ve no were to go & no funding to help me. I’ve no family that can help or would do anything for that matter. I’ve never ever done anything like this before.
I’ve struggled my whole life (and ya I’m sure you’ve heard it a million times but a terrible childhood) Its always been me & just me to try sort out & figure everything out. I’m on social payments 172.00 a week. With that I had to pay 120 rent all by myself , as did not get rent allowance until it was too late . There is also no washing machine or bins in the apartment I am in, so id have to go to the launderette to get clothes washed etc. , id also have to go to dump to get rid of rubbish & get charged per bag…That’s not even including the electric as of now I’m well behind. I tried my up most best I really have & it just was not good enough I suppose.
Ive to be out of here by tomorrow & from there I don’t know were or what ill do & I still have the outstanding bills. I hate thing like that happening & bills not being paid but I really tried. I’ve never been given a chance in life & definitely not helped & if I’m being honest I’m afraid to ask for help. I just really don’t know what to do next or were do I go.
I would be forever grateful if you could help me out please . When I get back on my feet & get things in order , ill be sure to give it back. Id appreciate any help at all, as any help is better then none at all .
Sorry to have to ask, I really am. I do apologize for any inconvenience caused.
Thank you ..
Hi, My name is Araceli, I’m a single mom of 2 kids with disabilities. My oldest son who is 8 has epilepsy and my daughter who is 7 has autism. January 2017 my son’s epilepsy got worst. Since then he is been having seizures 6 to 8 times a week. I had to quit my job and we were living with my savings and my income tax return. Unfortunately my savings weren’t enough and now we are facing eviction and we are probably going to have to leave our apartment by this weekend. I tried to apply for all kinds of help government, emergency assistance, due to my late payments in my credit cards I can’t get a loan no where. I have a part time job but is not enough money to cover the $2141.20 that I need to pay. Pleas help me I’m desperate I don’t have no where else to go. I feel so bad I don’t know how I’m going to explain my kids our situation. If you can pleas help me with anything pleas. And from the bottom of my heart Thank you so much for reading this.
First off let me say Thank you for reading my request.
I am a 53 year old single grandmother of 2 girls that I adopted last year who were in Child Protective Services. They are ages 8 and 11 years old. We have lived where we are for over 2 years now. Its not the most decent place but we make due. I do work fulltime and when caught up with bills I have enough money to get all needs paid for.
I am in need of help to prevent us from being evicted. I had a medical bill that was taken out of my account because my insurance wouldn’t cover it. I ended up getting behind on my rent. I just received my pay or quit notice and have 5 days to to pay or move. At this point I am out of options.
I have tried my community action agency, Salvation Army, St Vincent de Paul, as well as family who are essentially in the same situation only without an eviction hanging over their head.
Again thank you for reading and I hope

It is very embarrassing for me to ask for help but I have been trying so hard for years and have been able to provide for my family but these last couple of months have been terrible for me work wise. I have been through so much in my life. I came to America when I was 18 from Honduras in hopes for a better quality of life. I met this man here and we ended up dating and having two children together and then things got very violent, I left him while my second child was still 8 months and since then I have been a single mother. I have worked as a house cleaner for 17 years at the same company. In the beginning the money was enough to support my children ( I have three now); I am now in extreme debt and hours have lacking at my job. I live in a 3 bedroom home with 7 people. My sister and her two children (one with Down syndrome) live with us as wel as her husband was killed recently. It is not a comfortable living situation but we all have a roof over our heads and that is the most important thing for us. We are two months behind on our rent, and being threatened of eviction on Friday if we are not able to pay $4000. We have no where else to turn to, if we are not able to pay this we will be homeless. I am extremely depressed and stressed out. I have tried to apply to every single financial institute to see if there was any way I could get a loan for $4000 but I have been turned down by every single one. I don’t know where else to turn to. Please consider donating to me as we only have until Friday to pay and I am freaking out as I have nothing; anything will help. God bless you in advance. paypal.me/alt70
Hi, I’m trying to raise money the prevent eviction. I work for Social Services in Atlanta, GA so I get the pleasure of helping to make sure that Georgia’s families are able to eat and have medical insurance. But I do live check to check which is how I ended up in this situation. I am currently a month behind on my rent due to the fact I had to get my car fixed. I had to get both CV axils repaired and have my motor mount replaced. One CV axil was almost broken according to the mechanic and dripping fluid. The other was only cracked but wasn’t far behind the first one. Because of this, I had to choose between paying to get my car fixed or paying my rent on time. Without my car, I would not have been able to go to work so the decision was relatively easy but once you’re behind it’s hard to catch up.
Money breakdown: My base rent is $901 but the late fee is $100 and the fee for filing eviction on me is $200 which brings my total to owing $1,301. But now that it’s after the 25, I have to pay for the month of October as well. The past due $1,301 + $901 for October brings my grand total to $2,202. Unfortunately, if I am evicted I will have nowhere to go and will be homeless.

More about me: I am a single female with goals of making a positive impact on the world. I want to start at least 3 non-profit organizations for special needs individuals, homeless individuals, and single parents. I tell you all of this to show that I’m a person on the other side of this message. I’m not less of a person or less in need of help just because I don’t have children, as I have been made to feel many times. I have a Bachelor of Arts in English degree and have a heart for charity.

I am a 37 year old disabled woman that was born without my right arm and I just had my first child. My partner and I were surprised by the pregnancy because I was told it would be extremely hard for me to conceive. I was already 4 months pregnant when we found out so of course everything went into overdrive, as he started to work more hours we were OK financially but I started to get real sick so he wasn’t working as much so he could take care of me. We found someone to help me while he went back to work at night but that cost money, his hours were cut dramatically and I receive less than $500 every month with my SSDI check and bills both medical and utilities(rent as well) keep piling up. I gave birth to our beautiful baby girl on 8/31 I had to have an emergency c section, I also had a few seizures while I was in labor & delivery. Baby and I were hospitalized for a week and were told we had to have nurses come to my home to teach me how to properly breastfeed and take care of my baby because of my disability. On the day we were discharged we had an eviction notice on our door and on the second day we were home our power was turned off. We are basically broke since he hasn’t been to work in almost a month we had to use our savings to pay for things for the baby and to get the power back on but we still couldn’t come up with the money for our rent. Our landlord is basically saying we need to come up with $1500 by the 29th of this month(9/29/2017) or we have to go. We have no help he’s estranged from his family and my mom passed away 2 years ago. There is no aid available in my county & the aid that is available we don’t qualify for.
If anyone could help us raise the $1500 so we don’t have to take the little one to a shelter we would appreciate it so much. Thanks to everyone in advance
Four years ago, I tore a ligament while trying to stay within standards with my employer. Three months ago, I had to undergo surgery because the pain started to become unbearable. Today, I am struggling to keep a roof over my head. The surgery delayed me from working for two months. That’s when things started to go downhill. I worked so many overtime hours and tried my best to properly manage my money but with a $10/hour salary, it was impossible to keep up. I am also a student, so I still have to find balance.
I do not have children and I am single, living alone. The cost of living, in a semi safe neighborhood, is tricky but I still managed. I did not have time to prepare nor save because the excruciating pain from my injury was unexpected. It was literally a surprise. I woke up one morning, started to walk to the bathroom, and was instantly hit with a very sharp pain. Before that morning, I could walk around a track for exercise (no more than three miles or the pain would go into effect) but I could not run. I could not wear high heels nor could I perform any strenuous activities. So it was a mandatory procedure. I tried to hold off on the surgery because I applied to become a Police Officer but my Orthopedic Doctor suggested surgery before entering the Academy. He did not want me having any problems or delays catching the bad girls/guys. Little did I know of the troubles that would soon follow …
Before the surgery, I paid every bill and was never late. My credit is always a top priority! After the surgery, I got behind on two major bills; rent and my car note. I knew my situation was starting to become unmanageable when I started to sacrifice. So in order to keep my apartment I had to sacrifice a couple of car payments. Why did I do that? I had too! “Experience is a brutal teacher.”
I work the overnight shift. While at work, I constantly worried if my vehicle was going to be in the same spot where I left it. Last night, my fear became a reality. I got a call from my Supervisor informing me that my car was being towed. Apparently, the vehicle had a tracking system installed. Embarrassed, is an understatement! My Supervisor felt so bad that she offered to give me a ride home after my shift. She tried to ease the awkwardness by making small conversation but all I could think about was not having any transportation and my eviction process.
It’s hard to save when you are a full time student and barely making enough to get by. I have no problem asking for assistance with getting to and from places but that also costs. With your help, I can pick up from where I left off and try not to undergo anymore surgeries. I had to learn the hard way but every lesson prepares you for what is next. I was always told to position myself to have nothing taken away from me. Although that advice was pure, no matter how prepared you are, there are some situations you can not avoid. I have a little less than two weeks to avoid appearing in court.
I believe in help, kindness and giving. I have “ALWAYS” helped every single time I was able to, and here I find myself having to ask.
I was walking home from work yesterday and I saw a mommy with her daughter sitting in a stroller. The mom was holding up a sign asking for food. I am penniless and had nothing but the 50 cent bag of peanuts I was eating which was literally my only meal for the day. I felt so bad that I had nothing to offer, I teared up and gave the girl my tiny bag of peanuts. I talked to the mom and told her I am on the verge of the same thing, and if I had anything at all I would help them. We both teared up a little, and we hugged. I made a friend, although I will probably never see her again. I am certain that I helped her through a horrible situation and I don’t mean by the bag of nuts, or that I bailed her out, I mean that I tried. I felt her suffering and wanted it to stop. When people help, it gives hope to somebody who feels there was none, that some way there is light at the end of a dark road. I need help, even though I work hard and put in long hours, I need some help. I don’t want a pity party, just a dollar. If you can link and send me a dollar, it will go A LONG WAY, I PROMISE! I need a hand to make it, and when I can, I will help another. You won’t just be helping me. You will be helping many that are in need, by helping me be okay, because that will make it so you and I can give hope. That’s all, just a dollar : ) I work, I don’t steal, I am trying. I need to eat, pay rent, get a bus pass and exist in this world. Thank you, and if you are ever in need…just ask, I might be able to help
I am a single mom with chronic pain from a car accident when I was younger that pretty much lost everything this past year after leaving an abusive relationship. I lost myself, my two businesses, my home I owned for 10 years, my vehicle, and much more. I currently just finally found a house for my kids and I after being homeless and have been living in it for 3 weeks and am being evicted because I am not able to pay rent or any utilities because the job I finally acquired fell through. I just need some kind of help for my luck to change. I have half my child and youth care degree, I have always worked hard as I pretty much raised myself since I was 8 years old. While my ex got all the money for the house he has been showing it off by buying everything he wants and throwing it in my face. He’s waiting for me to lose my home and taking the kids saying I cannot care for them financially so I shouldn’t have them. I am depressed, in pain, have no family, and nowhere to turn. Basically, I need a jumpstart financially for my life to finally start going positive again. I am going to counseling, and attend workshops.
Hey My Name Is Mariah and I requesting for $1000 dollars. I have gotten 2 months behind on $595 rent and I have been working hard to get it down, but late fees are $10 a day and my landlord charges for cable as well and thats $40 a month and it just keeps going up. I had requested for her to give me extra time and she she did, but with the two weeks pay and other little bills I constantly kept falling behind and what’s upset me the most is When i first moved in everything was great I lost my second job so that put me behind alot and I ended up having to live check to check. Friday on Sept. 15th a eviction notice was put into my door explaining that tomorrow Sept.18 my account will be turned over to the courts and I will be have time to pay the remaining balance before my eviction date. If you find it in your heart to help me I would truly appreciate it. I have a job, but it just isn’t cutting it and I’m without a car so its hard for me to go out and find a better job i am 23 years old and my moms dead and i have no relationship with my father so this is my home and i am trying hard to keep it. I have become quite comfortable here and if i am not able to pay it i will be out on the street and i don’t want to end up like that. If i am,given the money i will send a copy of the receipt showing that i used the money for what i am requesting for. I have picked up extra hours but so much is being taken out of my check and its just frustrating that i can never give her the desired amount i always have want it that $1000 would help me out a whole lot and i will be making a huge payment altogether i owed 1375 on the 14th i made a payment for $250 and she said that wasn’t enough so i’m not asking for all just asking for the big part and i can pay the $375 myself so please help me i am going into deep depression about the situation and i would like to get out of it.
Thank you in advance for the taking the time to not only read my post but also donating to me. I have just recently returned back to work after having to take 5 weeks off to care for my youngest son. He is 3 years old and he has had a lot of hospital visits from birth . He was not able to breath on his own after being stuck for over 6 minutes and he also has nerve damage in his left arm (erbs palsy). We have done OT and he had some brain damage from being oxygen deprived which is why now he has problems that required me to take FMLA to get him help. Like i said I do work and I love my job working with people with disabilities and I have been doing it over 7 years. I need help with some bills right now because although I am back to work its only limited hours. I need help to make up for the difference of money I am losing out on to get my son help. I love both my children and will do anything to give them a good life. I haven’t been able to take them out or do things with them lately because I took the time off and I just don’t have the money. I’m facing eviction and lights being cut off right now. Please help me if you can I will be forever grateful.
