Sorry for the graphic image. Well my situation started last summer of 2017 when my father got sick from an infection on his foot. We took him to the hospital and found out he also had diabetes which made things a lot worse. They couldn’t control the infection and he ended having to get his left leg amputated. He doesn’t have health insurance so my family had to get somehow gather money just to help my dad. We got him a wheelchair and a prosthetic leg. I lived with my dad but after all this happened he moved in with my brother. He lives in a single home with his family. I decided to stay at the apartment that I lived in with my dad. I had to take over all the bills. Rent, Electric, internet, car payment, insurance and phone bill. I’ve been struggling all year to make ends meet. This summer 2018 things got worse. He had an ingrown nail on his right foot which got infected and out of control. The reason it got out of control was because he didn’t have any blood circulation on his right foot so the ingrown nail was never going to heal. They tried everything but couldn’t save it. He lost his right leg as well knee down. Again we had to gather money just to help him. So my situation went from bad to worse. He’s my dad and I’m going to do everything in my power to help him even if that means give him my last dollar. Now I’m literally on my last dollar having to pay all these bills by myself. It’s a hard situation and stressful. I feel like there’s no one I can go to for help. Everyone in my family have to deal with their money problems. I’m behind on my rent and I’m about to be on my second month behind with nothing to do. I don’t wanna get evicted and I’m trying everything to prevent that. I live paycheck to paycheck. I just need help even if it’s a little help. I’m not a scammer. I can send prove. I am not here to rip people off. If I ever get the money back I promise to try and pay part of it. If anyone is reading this please help. I’ve never been this low in my life. Thank you very much and God bless. I have cash app: juanmartinezcr7
Breaking a lease is usually grounds for eviction. The landlord or property management is not always going to consider the circumstances. Knowing your rights can help you deal with the process properly. This is useful in cases where you feel that you are being evicted unjustly.
Here are six important tips to protect yourself should you face an eviction.
Know the laws
Become familiar with the laws in your state. Each state has their own version of the Landlord and Tenant Act. This will serve as a guide to understanding the relationship between you and your landlord. It will contain an eviction section to focus on, but be sure to read the entire document. You can get a copy through the Attorney General’s website or by going to a local courthouse.
Pay close attention to the details regarding evictions, especially anything that constitutes an illegal eviction. In general, the landlord has to give a certain amount of notice and you have a window of time to correct the situation. Not allowing or adhering to this is a violation. An illegal eviction is not allowed in most states. If your landlord tries to evict you outside of the process, you can sue them. For example, if they change the locks on you or remove any property.
From the day you move in, you should keep documents and records of all interactions with your landlord. This is beneficial should anything like an eviction come up. Keep every notice or letter they give you. Record the time, date, and nature of any verbal communications too. Always keep cashed checks and receipts as well as maintenance records.
It is also a good idea to take photos of the property when you move in, or once any grievance occurs. Some landlords have been known to claim damage to property and claim it was done by you. The more documentation and evidence you have, the better your case will be against your landlord or eviction. Not all landlords try devious tactics, but it is best to be prepared in the event they do.
Consult with an attorney
It helps to get legal advice during an eviction, even though you do not need representation for the case. Use a private attorney if you can afford one or check with Legal Aid for assistance. Most cities have Legal Aid offices and will be happy to provide consultation services. You get information and advice for a reduced price and sometimes free. Be sure to take all your documents and evidence so they can help you set up your case. Running through the details with them gets you prepared mentally for the case ahead.
Go to the hearing
You need to go to an eviction hearing in court. You cannot be evicted without this and your landlord is responsible for scheduling this. Do not miss this hearing. If you do not show, the judge automatically rules in favor of the landlord. If you go to the hearing, you may have a chance of beating the eviction. You will never know if you decide to pass. When you show up, the landlord also cannot claim damage against you or any other fines.
Make sure you are prepared before you go. Plan to proceed in the same way you discussed with your attorney. Have all documents ready to present and establish your defense before you get there. Dress professionally and arrive early.
Handling an eviction
In some cases, the judge will rule in favor of the landlord. Even if you have all documents and a good defense, you need to be prepared for this outcome. Make arrangements ahead of time to stay somewhere else and plant to rent a storage unit. If you have already found another rental, you do not need to worry about that. BE prepared to leave the property quickly. Every state allows an amount of time for eviction and in some cases it can be as little as 48 hours.
Getting another place
Evictions can be reported to credit bureaus. This can hurt your chances of renting again. Most landlords do not report this but there are other ways credit companies can get this info. There are companies that collect information and sell it to prospective landlords.
Be prepared for your next landlord to know about the eviction. Don’t plan on hiding it. Explain the circumstances to them and be honest. You can present all the same documents you had for the hearing to make your case. It does not do any good to talk bad about the previous landlord, especially if the eviction was your fault. You do not want to appear like a problem tenant. It can take time to find a new rental.
Many will turn you down, but someone will approve of you. You should expect that when you are approved you will have to pay or a higher security deposit. The eviction becomes less relevant as time passes, especially when you begin to make on-time payments.
An eviction can seem disastrous and cause for worry. The important thing to remember is that you are not the only one to go through this. Many renters have been evicted and get through the process just fine. Protect yourself by following the laws and being honest. Be prepared and know your rights and you will have the best chance of beating an eviction. If you do get evicted, know that it is not the end of the world. With time, everything will be right again.
I’m a single working mum I have 4 of my 8 children left living at home,1 of which who has schuemanns disease in her spine. I work take care of my children and also take care of my disabled mum. I had an injury at work and was on the sick which left me owing rent, and other bills as my employer only paid a fraction of my wage. After my injury muy boss who isnt so nice started to drop my hours at work knowing i couldnt manage. I came out of a very bad domestic violence situation and moved where my ex partner could not find us, but now my landlord has given me 2 weeks to leave the property even though he takes nearly all my wage to pay him. Even though I am back at work and trying to pay arrears off. I have no one I can turn to help without my ex finding us. I have suffered severe depression for around 30 years now and when things built up felt like ending it all but the thoughts of my children stop me because they have no one else. I am desperately pleading with any one who can help me just get my life back on track I would be eternally in debt to them, I can only afford to feed my children 1 time a day. Which rips my heart out. We have no luxuries and never have done we just live plain and simple. I am £5000 in debt in total that’s from rent and bills. Please could someone find it in there heart to help us. Thank you and God bless you all.
Hi, my name is Gabriel. I am a college student in California studying aerospace engineering. I am unemployed and have no steady source of income. The last two months I have not been able to pay my rent, and have been given a pay or quit eviction notice by the landlord. I have exhausted my own personal saving trying to pay off the amount I owe, but it only lowered it to $1,200. I have no other way of paying this sum. If I get evicted I have no where else to go. My financial aid does not cover my housing expenses. I have to pay by today at 5 pm, I will have to beg my landlord to give me more time. I am desperate with no other options. I am not eligible for loans because of my unemployment and lack of credit history. I have only barely started my life and I am already struggling so much. I am embarrassed to even be asking for money on here. I never thought I would ever have to do this. This is a very stressful situation for me on top of the school work that I have to get done. I do not have time to get a job because of my classes and club activities. I have not bothered to tell my friends because I am too ashamed of the situation I am in, and I hardly think they would be able to help me with the rent and tuition that they are paying as well. I have a plan to pay my future rent for the months that follow, but it won’t help me for what I owe at the moment. Please, anyone, I am in serious danger of eviction. If I get evicted it would impair my ability to go to my classes and I’d likely end up dropping out. And I can’t drop out, college is the only way I can make a stable future for myself. I waited until the last minute to ask for this, I hoped that I could find another way, but I couldn’t. I really appreciate any donations that anyone can make. If all goes well I will never have to ask for another donation ever again. Again I owe $1,200. Words can’t express my gratitude. I will link my paypal below, and thank you for hearing my story.
I’m not sure where to begin, so I guess I’ll begin from about a year ago. I left a very toxic relationship of 18 years to move to Maryland to gain access to the extraordinary resources available for my youngest son. He was diagnosed with autism at the age of 2 and is non-verbal. Maryland is home to some of the best therapeutic schools, research centers and treatment facilities in the country. I knew if I was going to give my son a fighting chance at life, I’d have to leave rural Virginia and move to where he’d receive the best care. And so I did. I got him a scholarship into one of the best private pre-k programs for children with speech delays. I called and called until I got him on the schedule for therapy services at the top ranked treatment and therapy center in the country. I got my 7 yr old daughter into charter Montessori school. I’ve spent the past year shuffling around a big city with 2 young children securing resources alone. Their father “does what he can” but provides little to no support in any capacity. Fast forward to the past summer—The car that I received as sort of a “Palimony Gift” broke down while on my way to my on-demand courier job. I was subsequently fired for not making it to my shift. The car is still parked in the same spot (hopefully) because I have no money for towing or to get it serviced. Since losing my source of income, I’ve now fallen behind in rent and am facing eviction. The apartment I live in is not the best environment for my son (or family) to begin with. I have the most inconsiderate upstairs neighbors who stomp, slam, bang, and otherwise make loud thuds so much that my son covers his ears in shrieks. He once woke from a loud bang from above and started crying hysterically. I complained to the leasing office, police, etc. but all my complaint has resulted in me being harassed at my door step by the neighbor and her cousin and threatened with a drive-by. So maybe being evicted wouldn’t be so bad. But I still need a home for my children. And that’s why I’m here on this site. I’m in desperate need of funds to either halt eviction or move (preferably) and car repairs (possible head gasket). I have no one else to turn to as far as family or friends. Plus I’ve found that the kindness of strangers is more reliable anyways. So thank you for reading this thus far. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Please find it in your heart to read our story.
we are the Fox Family, here is our story. We are currently homeless staying where anywhere we can. My name is Holly I am 30 years old and my husband his name is Anthony and he is 25 years old. We have two toddlers our first born son AJ just turned three years old on July 16th 2015 and our daughter Miss Athena just turned two years old on July 27th 2016. We have been having it really rough for the past 4 months trying so hard to get jobs, we still to this present day go-to workforce development center to apply for jobs, it’s really hard to get a job in ironton ohio.. We got evicted from our home on October 1st, 2018. Since then we have had to walk up and down the streets of Ironton, Ohio all gours of the day and cool off at Briggs library and let our kids play in ironton. Our clothes and belongings are in Storage. We walk there everyday to get a change of clothes and food for us. I cried so hard on our eviction date because we walked out of our home and had to leave our refrigerator,tables, some kids toys, our beds, air conditioner, couch. It was heartbreaking so bad because our babies don’t deserve this. I begged our landlord to let us make payments and she said no she can’t. Many nights me and Anthony would sit up and cry because our little babies dont deserve to be homeless on the streets. Our son AJ can’t hear to well he is going deaf like me his mommy. Our daughter Athena loves to sing just like our little boy. There daddy and myself have went to the Ironton Ohio welfare office and they said they can’t help us with a housing voucher and the Ironton CAO can’t help with housing either because we don’t have jobs. And the Ironton City Mission only will let us stay for 10 days and then we can’t stay there after that. We have no vehicle, no house. We pray to God every day that he will help and bless our family and keep us safe always.
We really need help financially, and anything would be a blessing.

I want to start by saying thank you for taking the time out and reading my post..
I am a single female with 2 children facing eviction for rental arrears in the amount of $6,000 and wage garnishment for State taxes owed in the amount of $8000( NY State).
Over the past couple of years its been a downward financial battle for me:
July 2013- I was a layoff due to company downsizing. After the lay-off I was able to collect unemployment in the amount of $405.00 (weekly max for NY residents). The $1620.00 a month only covered my portion of the rent which was 1250.00 (rent 2500.00 a month) and utilities. I was barely able to feed myself and my children. I did not qualify for food stamps because my unemployment exceeded the allowable income for a family of 3. This is when my life took a turn for the worst. All my bills got behind and I have been trying to play catch up ever since.
April 2014 – 8 months after I was layed off I found a temp job paying 18.00 dollars an hour. I worked very hard and the company brought me on permanent Jan 2015. I thought all was looking up and I was getting a fresh start and I could catch up on my bills (credit cards, student loans, tax obligations, etc), but in Feb 2018 I had to go out on short term disability for Thyroid Surgery and in May 2018 my roommate decided to move out without notice oweing 5 months of her portion of the rent (6000.00). On top all everything that has gone wrong in my life now NYS finance is garnishing my job every pay period for 300.00.
If I don’t give my landlord 6000.00 on 10/2 me and my kids will be evicted immediately as per our court stipulation. I have been in court since April 2018 my roommate promised to pay the stip order but she just bailed on me. I tried to talk to my landlord but he want me to pay $3605.00 a month until the $6000.00 in arrears is paid. I only bring home $3,800.00 after taxes.
I am a hard working single parent. My children father does not reside with us nor does he provide financial support because he is terminally ill.
Please if you read my request find it in your heart to help me and my family.

Hello, my name is Miguel and I´m writing here also in the name of my family, Catarina, my wife and Simão our 2 years old boy.
We need desperately to find a situation that prevent us from going to live on the streets or for some shed without any hygiene conditions. And this is because our landlord decided to put us out of home claiming that he sold the house to someone and we have to get out fast until the end of October.
In December 2017 we decided, after almost 3 years of deliberations, to move out from the city (Lisbon, Portugal) and go to the countryside. In this beautiful village in the deep interior of Portugal there was a permaculture project, and a community starting to gather to fulfill part of our dreams, just there awaiting for us. Things went terrible wrong and we have not found anything we expected, the person responsible for this gathering, and who we taught was our friend, turned out to be a mischieving person who just wanted us there to work for her. There were nobody else there, no community, and we alone would be working for her while she sat down comfortably somewhere in London just waiting for things to be done and then come to Portugal and kick us out of here.
Meanwhile we are here in this village taking care of our son without any help from anyone. We´ve been living in the house of this lady (landlady) that rented it to the London person. We have been dividing the expenses for the rent. Everything else is our responsibility to pay. But I am the only one who can work right now and there is almost no work in this region of Portugal.Well there are work to do but requires long trips to go to work and it has to be with our own car. There are almost no public transportation and the ones that work only do small trips once a day. I don´t have money to spent on gas this way because what I would earn would go literally 75% to support this travels.
I´m working as a waitress in big weddings on the weekends, and the money I get there is almost enough to cover all our expenses. But right now we have a small rent (we pay half of the rent along with the other London person) that allow us to manage things almost in a surviving mode but enough to have always food on the table. We spent a lot of money in gas anytime we need to buy something (we have to go to the city) or for me to go to work.
Conclusion: We need money to get out of this house, this village, and move to another house probably in the closest city and near my job, and where probably we have other possibilities to turn this situation we´re living into something positive. I´ve been sick for the last two months derived of the stress and anxiety created by this heartless people that we had the misfortune to be surrounded by, and the knowing that my baby can suffer from all this without understanding nothing that is happening. Fortunately we have the good sense of keep him happy and away from this worries but if we can not resolve this situation (landlady does not give in to her decision) we are going to be in big troubles.
We need money to pay the next rent plus the bond, it´s usually the same value. It means that the cheapest house, and with minimal conditions for housing a baby, that we have been researching goes around 300€/350€. That means we have to pay 600€/700€ immediately when we enter our new home, plus the expenses from the home moving.
We need 1000€ and we probably will have only 125€ in the beginning of October.
Please help us with whatever you can. Anything from one cent to whatever you want, or can give, is going to make all the difference for us. It´s just this we want to start putting our lives back into the tracks and look for better chances.
We appreciate your interest in this request for help and we will be forever grateful for your participation.
I wish you all the best in my name and in the name of my family.
Olá, o meu nome é Miguel e estou a escrever aqui também em nome da minha família, Catarina, minha companheira e o Simão nosso bébé de 2 anos.
Precisamos desesperadamente de encontrar uma situação que nos impeça de ir morar para a rua ou por alguma casa sem condições de higiene. E isto pode ser possível porque a nossa senhoria decidiu nos colocar fora de casa, alegando que vendeu a casa a alguém e que temos que sair rápido até ao final de outubro.
Em dezembro de 2017 decidimos, após quase 3 anos de deliberações, sair da cidade (Lisboa, Portugal) e ir para o campo. Nesta bela aldeia no interior profundo de Portugal, havia um projeto de permacultura e uma comunidade começando a reunir-se que iria realizar parte de nossos sonhos, aqui á espera por nós. As coisas correram terrivelmente mal e não encontrámos nada do que esperávamos, a pessoa responsável por este encontro, e quem nós pensámos ser nossa amiga, acabou por ser uma pessoa maldosa que apenas queria que nós trabalhássemos para ela. Não havia mais ninguém lá, nenhuma comunidade, e nós iríamos estar a trabalhar sozinhos para ela enquanto ela se sentava confortavelmente algures em Londres apenas à espera que as coisas ficassem feitas para então vir para Portugal e nessa altura expulsar-nos daqui.
Enquanto isso, estamos aqui nesta aldeia cuidando do nosso filho sem a ajuda de ninguém. Nós temos vivido em casa desta senhora (proprietária) que a alugou para a pessoa de Londres. Nós temos dividido as despesas da renda. Tudo o resto é nossa responsabilidade de pagar. Mas eu sou o único que pode trabalhar agora e quase não há trabalho nesta região de Portugal. Bem, há trabalho disponível, mas requer longas viagens para ir trabalhar e tem que ser com o nosso próprio carro. Quase não há transporte público e os que existem só fazem pequenas viagens uma vez por dia. Eu não tenho dinheiro para gastar com gasolina dessa maneira porque do que eu ganharia 75% seriam para suportara gasolina dessas viagens.
Eu estou a trabalhar como empregado de mesa em grandes casamentos nos fins de semana, e o dinheiro que eu ganho lá é quase o suficiente para cobrir todas as nossas despesas. Mas isso éporque agora temos uma pequena renda (pagamos metade da renda junto com a outra pessoa de Londres) o que nos permite administrar as coisas quase em modo de sobrevivência, mas o suficiente para ter sempre comida na mesa. Gastamos muito dinheiro em gasolina sempre que precisamos comprar algo (temos que ir para a cidade) ou para eu ir trabalhar.
Conclusão: Precisamos de dinheiro para sair desta casa, desta aldeia, e mudar para outra casa provavelmente na cidade mais próxima e perto do meu trabalho, e onde provavelmente temos outras possibilidades para transformar esta situação que estamos a viver em algo positivo. Eu tenho estado doente nos últimos dois meses, derivado do stresse e da ansiedade criados por estas pessoas sem coração que tivemos a infelicidade de nos fazermos cercados, e o conhecimento de que o meu bébé pode sofrer com todas estas mudanças sem entender nada do que se está a passar. Felizmente, temos o bom senso de mantê-lo feliz e longe destas preocupações, mas se não pudermos resolver esta situação (a proprietária não quer ceder na sua decisão), estaremos em grandes dificuldades.
Precisamos de dinheiro para pagar a próxima renda mais a garantia, geralmente é o mesmo valor. Isso significa que a casa mais barata, e com as condições mínimas para a vivermos com um bébé de forma digna, pela nossa pesquisa gira em torno de 300 € / 350 €. Isso significa que temos que pagar 600 € / 700 € imediatamente assim que entrarmos na nova casa, mais as despesas da mudança.
Precisamos de 1000 € e provavelmente teremos apenas 125 € no início de outubro.
Por favor, ajude-nos com o que você puder. Qualquer coisa, desde um cêntimo até ao que quiser ou puder dar fará toda a diferença para nós. É só isso que queremos para colocar as nossas vidas de volta no caminho certo e procurar por melhores chances e hipóteses de vida.
Agradecemos o seu interesse neste pedido de ajuda e estaremos eternamente gratos pela sua participação.
Desejamos tudo de bom em meu nome e no nome da minha família.
My name is Heather, I am a 31 year old mother of two young boys. My partners job is seasonal and has slowed down so much that we can barely afford to keep food on the table, let alone pay all the bills that need covered a month. Recently, he has started a new job in an auto shop but the kick start of that took a few weeks and it drastically changed our financial situation. It almost turned it upside down. We are at wits end with each other. I honestly feel like he hates me because I am a stay at home mom and now that we are struggling, it is my fault we don’t have enough for anything. Everything in my life has taken a toll, bills, family, and even my relationship. I have tried to stay strong for my children, as they don’t need the stress of a financial burden at such a young age. On Wednesday, our landlord came by and said that we needed to be out by Friday, which is tomorrow. He is not the most lenient landlord by any means but he is not expected to be, I am sure he hears all the excuses in the world of why people are behind on their rent. I have sold most of my expensive personal belongings and have came up with this past months rent which was 525.00, now all I need is another 525.00 to catch up everything by tomorrow. I have never been this stressed, scared and disappointed in myself ever. I am asking for financial help for rent and groceries, obviously rent comes first as I can visit local churches to help for food for the time being. I really need to make this happen by then end of the day tomorrow, otherwise me and my family will be forced out of our home. I never knew that they could come to your door and tell you that in two days you have to be out of the home. It is heartbreaking, and if it were just me I wouldn’t be as stressed, but I have two kids, and its hard enough keeping positive energy when their parents are constantly arguing. Please, I am literally on my knees begging at this point for help. I have no lifelines. I am asking for 525.00 to cover my rent, and I have worked up enough to pay for the rest of what I owed. Please, I have worked so hard but in such little time it doesn’t even matter.
Where do I start, my name is Jennifer. I’m a 43 yr old single woman just trying be independent again for the first time in 18 yrs so this kills me to have to ask for assistance. I’m a bartender and have been at the same place for almost 19 yrs. Shortly after I had to move and live alone again they cut my shifts down. I’ve been trying to find another job that works around my schedule there but it has proven to be more difficult then I expected. I’ve put in so many applications and most of them online because that’s just how it works anymore. I’ve had a number of interviews and thought they went really well but apparently it well enough. I feel I’m not hired due to the condition of my teeth. I’m more than qualified in my profession but most places want a nice smile to be dealing with customers. I was just offered a job so thats good but I haven’t gotten to start it yet. I’ve fallen behind in my rent as I’ve been struggling for a while now. My parents can’t help me. I’ve saved my apartment from eviction once already and now am in a 2nd stipulation. I had to borrow from a not so reputable lender to stop the eviction a few months ago and have him breathing down my back right now too. I’ve had to put extension on my gas bill but only until Friday and had my power shut off the other day so had to pay that out of what little money I had saved for my rent. I need $1000 by tomorrow to save my apartment this month (now its going to be to find a new place to live before this eviction hits my credit which i fear it has most likely happened now and moving expenses because I have no idea what I am going to do or BE ABLE to do) and $2500 to pay the lender back who has been showing up at my job and harassing me messing with other people in my life. Every week that goes by is an extra $100 he charges. I borrowed $2000 from him and he charged $500 plus $100 a week after his due date. I’ve already given him $300 but am now back up to $2500 again.
I can’t take the stress anymore. I have high blood pressure, no insurance and am out of my medication. I have multiple ER bills for going due to my blood pressure and I’m scared I’m about to have a stroke or heart attack. I can’t get a loan because my credit has gone to hell. I can’t keep up this stress and have no where to go and no means to move if I lose my apartment. I’ll lose everything and be homeless. I don’t qualify for or have the time even if I did for state assistance.
My car is a total lemon mechanically and cosmetically, I’ve had to put so much $ into it and now the transmission is going and I need 2 more new tires as they’re about blow. I’m scared every time I go to drive it otherwise I’d be doing uber and delivery services I’ve signed up for during my spare time. But need to renew my insurance and think my license might now be suspended.
I’m at my wits end!!!! I’ve been breaking down every night and am usually so strong and the one everyone turns to for help or a place to crash if they need some time to get back on their feet but now I’m the one who needs help needs and I can’t take the stress anymore!! It’s literally going to kill me! Please please please help me!!! !!!! ! I just want to be OK and sleep at night without the nightmares and being terrified every day!!! I’m at the end of my rope!!!! Anything would be so graciously appreciated and will and do always pay forward when I can!
I am a college student who works part time. My family is going through a really tough time so I have no financial help. My mother was pregnant and had my younger sister 8 weeks early a couple days ago. During that time she lost a lot of blood and they were scared she might not make it. I flew back immediately which was my rent money. She had a blood transfusion and end up recovering beautifully. Thank God. I’ve never been late on my rent before and I got a notice saying I had 7 days to pay the $502 or I would be evicted. Please I’m asking if someone could please help me! I only make about 300 a week and this is midterm week as well so I’m cutting my study time down so I can work more hours unfortunately. I’m praying that someone sees this and God puts it on your heart to be a blessing. I just want to be ok so I can continue to pursue my degree without being homeless.
In order to overcome my hardship I am in need of $6000.00 PLEASE HELP!! After a horrible breakup where I was left penniless, My children and I moved to a new city and we have no support system. I am a teacher and was unemployed for almost 3 months (July/Aug/Sept). I am behind almost 3 months on my rent and my landlord is demanding payment by Monday, 8 Oct 2018. He has already filed eviction documents through the courts against me and to stop it I need to submit the funds through the courts. In addition, when I was unemployed I was unable to make my car payments and have to hide my car in my garage to avoid repo until I come up with 3 car payments. Someone please bless my kids and I out of this situation so that we do not become homeless and carless while I’m getting on my feet. Currently, I do have a job, but it’s not enough to catch up my past 3 months debt.
Hello Good Samaritans,
My name is Dodie, and I am writing this message to everyone who will have the time to read asking for a bit of your help regarding my situation. I am currently in financial distress. I am in the verge of being evicted because I am behind on my rent for 2 months now. It all started when I lost my job on the summer of 2016 and only relying on my income on unemployment insurance. I worked as a nanny and does not earn much. I am the only one working as my husband is sick and does not have any medical insurance . Every time he visit the doctor the expenses are all coming out from our pocket. In spite of this, I still able but struggling to pay off my rent, so I got into the cycle of borrowing from payday loans. I also borrowed from my close friends but I can only do it once as they have also family to support. Aside from this, I am also supporting my mother who have diabetes and does not have any medical insurance as well. I got overwhelmed with all these responsibilities that sometimes I just sit in one corner and not knowing what to do and my tears starting to pour. It is so bad that my husband and I argues a lot. I went and ask for help in the county where I am residing but was turned down on the basis of I have too much debt. I plead my case and told my case worker how come you were able to help people that comes in this country clothed them, give them place to live, credit cards to spend, send their children to school and they have not pay a single tax in this country and I am here a responsible individual, no conviction and good citizen of this country, paying my taxes and just for this time asking for one time help with my rent you cant lend your hand. They said that what happened to me is the result of being not responsible with my finances. I left their office with a heavy heart and feeling so alone and don’t know what to do. I went to library and search for people with financial difficulty asking help from people who can lend their hand and I got into this website. Please help me.
Thank you for reading my message and any amount that you can spare big or small is much appreciated from the bottom of my heart and knowing that there’s still goodness and kindness in human heart.
God bless you all and may we find peace in our hearts always.
First I would like to say if I dont collect a penny through this site I am very thankful to God and the powers that be for even making something like this available for people in need. I am brought here because I am a 48 year old Women who has lived a very full life and have had a dream job to be able to travel the world. Unfortunately on one of those trips I was bitten by a mosquito and ended up hospitalized for weeks with something like Malaria this ended that career when I lost part of my right lung which would be sustainable but along with having Systemic Lupus placed me on disability which I have learned to live with I work a part time job now in a food chain restaurant and because I went over the amount that disability allows by four dollars yes I said four dollars they Disability took away my check for the month of September I have been struggling trying to get my rent together and pay bills because of $4 they took an entire check I depend on to put a roof over my head. I had to slow down working the serving job hoping that they will reinstate the check for October. I have been working since I was 16 years old I would rather work and pay my way right now I stuck and was directed to this site just by a general web search trying to figure this out, $2000.00 would pay my rent and late fee along with catching up on late bills. I am willing to take a leave from work if someone need a housekeeper, Personal Assistant, Shopper, Ecen a House Sitter to work for the assistance I am willing to do that. For the person that is willing to help I can assure you that I am the pay it forward person. If someone would like to reach out to verify my story I encourage it.
I’m in a pretty terrible situation right now. I am looking to check into a mental health facility because I’m in a very poor mental health state right now and honestly require in patient treatment. While my job is willing to work with me and give me the time I need, I am also getting evicted for reasons related to my mental health issues. I live with a friend and don’t have a formal lease. I’ve been paying $500 a month, but things have gotten to a point where I will be evicted in a few weeks. I have a dog and am a dog trainer (Tod is pictured above). If I have to, I will find a home for him, but I would very much like not to have to do that. He’s my best friend, and I would like to raise money for both a security deposit when I get out and to board Tod somewhere while I am in patient at the hospital. I want to stay at the store where I work because I like it and the people there, but I don’t have a car, making my apartment choices limited. I have found some relatively low cost ones, but I need to come up with that security deposit money as well. I don’t think I’m entitled to anyone’s money at all. This was just somewhat sudden on top of my decision to check in to a hospital as well. I just really need help. The boarding and the security deposits and the potential pet fees are stacking up, and I was not saving in anticipation of all of this. So, if anyone can help, I would be so grateful. I can’t pay you back, and I’m so sorry for that. But I’m at a breaking point and don’t know what to do without anyone to really help in the immediate area where I live. Thank you even for considering this. I appreciate that.
