Hi my name is LaKneisha Wimberly and I’m in need of help with an pending eviction. My husband and I were once very independent and financially stable until the pandemic hit. My husband has his own semi truck and work as an independent contractor and was making great income doing so. Well 2022 everything started falling apart with due husband catching covid twice and not being able to drive for weeks to being overcharged in truck maintenance repairs due to pandemic and up kick in prices for parts and labor and many parts being on backorder for weeks on end which everyone knows that a truck that is not on the road isn’t making money. Well that’s where we found ourselves for a few months in the beginning of the year 2022. After massive repair costs and months of sitting waiting on truck to be repaired we exhausted our savings and we really started to get behind on rental payments. Well repairs and maintenance and high fuel cost and low freight rates we became a sinking ship and got behind 2 months on rental payments. Because of our great rental payments history our landlord agency referred us to get help from Georgia rental assistance due to my husband having caught covid twice, we qualified for the help along with the industry hardship we were facing. Well waiting on that assistance approval would take months on end due to the amount of people applying verses the amount of caseworkers they had to work the applications. Had I known it would have been a nightmare waiting to happen I probably would have just asked my mother for help until we got on our feet. Even though GRA (Georgia rental assistance) knew our rent payments was piling up for months they gaves us hope that they would help and that they would be paying back rent and rent 6 months ahead to help us while we work on getting our truck back on the road to making money. Well the GRA (Georgia rental assistance) program had been open since 2020 helping people in need and because at the time we didn’t need the assistance we were unaware of how long the program was open for, how it worked, the massive amount of people applying for it and the amount of funds that the program was allocated for. When the funding for the program started to run out and after months of waiting for the assistance we were expecting, because the funds weren’t available, the program started denying people assistance for reasons beyond our control this putting us behind tremendously in rental payments that we did not have. As the truck industry is suffering due to high fuel cost and low freight rates it was hard to get our heads above water. We are stuck in a situation of facing homeless with our two grandsons 3 years and 1 years old. For the longest we were just only making enough money for the everyday essentials and buy food. We don’t have anywhere to go and I fasted and prayed and diligently seeked God about the situation for the last 7 months when this video miraculously appeared in my YouTube recommendations yesterday that I could ask for help on certain websites. I don’t know how far we will get with help as our rental payments when filed in court are in the excess of $43,000. We hoping to receive a blessing, miracle, and supernatural help because we either pay the back rent now or later and a judgement on our rental history would make it almost impossible to find another place to go. My husband truck is on the road but he’s making way way less than what he used to make but if we received help to get caught up with rental payments we would be able to make the monthly rents of $2150 going forward. It just happened that our landlord agency would not take partial payments or a payment arrangement once we got behind which made us unable to catch it up to pay it. I thank anyone who is able to help us.
