Hello, I usually don’t ask for help but I don’t know what to do anymore…my name is Michael and it’s been a rough couple of months, I’ve barely been making it by because my old job has been giving me 15-20 hours a week, instead of the 40 I was originally promised. I’ve begged for more hours but they were unwilling to give any extra, even hours of people who called out and said I could have them. But I was able to work out a deal with the owner of the complex I live in and set up a payment plan which was helping a lot at the time… I’ve been making payments here and there when I could and I was just able to give them $550. It was going really well, I even just got a new job and it’s basically my dream job (they pay more, give more hours and it’s in the field I’m interested in) that I’ve been in the process of getting for a few months and I finally got it a few weeks ago. I’m supposed to start in about four days, but the manager at my complex just messaged me and said that the owner isn’t accepting payment plans anymore and I owe $1227.29 or I’m losing my place. If I lost this place I’d lose my job too, my credit isn’t that good and I tried finding loans but I can’t get any and I don’t know what to do anymore, I hate asking for help but I have no clue where I can go or what I can do. I have a therapy dog and I don’t know if I could handle losing her, I have PTSD and a few other disorders that she really helps with and I love her so much, her name is Jayla and she’s a retriever. I adopted her three years ago from the Humane Society and she’s been such a huge part of my life. These past couple days have been the hardest I’ve had to deal with in a while. I’m sorry if I’m rambling or if I don’t make as much sense as I would like to, I’m just in such a constant state of anxiety right now and I can’t think clearly. Even now my dog has her head on my lap as I write this. This all feels like it happened so sudden and devastating, it feels like a semi just crashed into me. I just can’t imagine losing everything…
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.
Greetings, gracious donors.
I wanted to thank you for giving me your time, and for letting me share my story.
I understand you have worked very hard to earn your money, and that you want to spend it wisely. It hurts me to have to ask this of anyone, let alone a stranger, but I am in dire need of some financial assistance, or I will be facing my imminent eviction come next week… I would be grateful and willing to work out some sort of repayment if you have any computer/cleric work that I can do remotely!
So here is a little bit about me, and why I believe I deserve to be helped:
My name is Meg. I am a 29-year-old woman and on April 17, 2017, my world as I knew it stopped. The 30-year-old man that I loved and had spent nearly 5 years with was pronounced dead by the team of doctors and nurses that led the grueling 45 min attempt to restart his heart. The day he died, everything in my world went black. I tried to carry on, some days better than others, but I just didn’t see the point of caring anymore. Who would? How was that fair?
I found vices in various things, but my 12 years experience of working in childcare and special education no longer brought me joy. I was still showing up to work, but I wasn’t really there. I found my passion for expressing myself through various art forms such as watercolor painting which I taught myself that winter, and photography that I had been learning for the last 2 decades. I was finding little moments each day to keep ongoing. But depression has gotten the better of me, and despite the therapy and medication, I am not happy. I have been trying to find a position away from being with children all day, but being my only form of experience my entire career, starting over is proving difficult. I am struggling every month to pay rent, buy groceries and cat food, make the gas and electric bill on time, and my car is out of commission with expired tags on top of it. I want to believe that things will get better, that things are happening because this is my path, my purpose in life is to feel this and experience this darkness, but it’s getting darker as my candle runs out of wick. So, if my savior is out there, or saviors, someone who can help me with anything, I will happily do so in exchange for my labor. As of now, my most in-demand bills I need help with:
My prescription for anti-anxiety medication is also no longer available to me which makes things harder, but short of a script or local doctor I don’t think you’re able to help with that!
Thank you for hearing me out, I am so grateful there are facets like this site available to assist the less fortunate like myself.
Please let me know what I can do to thank you, have a blessed week, and thank you for saving my life.
I am a single mom of two small children who is seeking help for a removals notice asking for a sum of £1180, I’ve been having a had time and urgently need help as my goods are going to be removed we haven’t got much and this is a unknown bill that has come out of nowhere. I am worried and scared that they will remove the only few things we have left. So I am desperately asking for anyone’s help even if it’s a little. Thank you and may god bless you.
I am not one to usually ask for help, I would rather try and work it out somehow, but now I’m in a bind that I can’t crawl out of.
My name is Maggie, I am 46 and married to my husband Thomas. I am a mother of three children. We recently relocated to Michigan due to my moms health going downhill.
My oldest son Zach is still down in Georgia, he is 18 and started at Georgia Southern this fall. I am very very proud of him and all he has accomplished. He plays the saxophone and is a wonderful musician. I am divorced from his father, so I have had to do everything on my own for him since he was 12.
My daughter breanna is 14, her and Zach have the same dad, so again I have done for her all by myself. She just started school and she also plays the saxaphone, she is a very bright young girl.
My son Issac is 4, his daddy is Thomas, my husband. Because we had him at a late age in our life, he has complications. He has autism and adhd. Life with my baby is hard some days but I love him no matter what and God willing, he will get better.
My husband Thomas is 48, he does work but don’t make that much and by the time they take out child support on his other 2 kids that leaves us with 500.00 bi-weekly.
I did have a job, I was working for an aerospace company and doing CNC machining, I have been doing this type of work for 19 years. I had just started so I was in the probation period still. As I mentioned earlier my mom was ill, so last month she had to have surgery the surgeon gave her a 50/50 chance of survival so of course I went! She is my mama! They took her back at 1pm and she did not get out until almost 8:30pm. They had almost lost her a couple of times. Well her surgeons office had sent a note into my work the next day excusing me for the day of her surgery and the day after. When I called my employer to see if they had received the fax, she let me know they terminated my employment!
I have always been the provider for my family because of my occupation and now I have nothing. I can’t even buy the necessities for the house.
A few days ago I received a notice to vacate the home because we owe partial deposit yet and rent. Everyday we are late it goes up another 5.00. We currently owe 1650.00 to stay in our home, and so I’m asking, begging for for help. I don’t want my children to be homeless or go without. I have donated over the years to many charities. God knows, I need someone to be my hero please. Anything would help us right now but my biggest fear is being homeless. Please if you can help us here is my
My name is Dominic Carter, I am 33 years old from Baltimore Maryland. I recently had fell on Hard Times due to being unexpectedly laid off from my job. I have been homeless before sleeping in vacant homes and on the back porches a so-called friends. I have always kept a job and paid my bills on time and also try to help those in need when I could. I don’t have anyone to help me and I’m all alone. For the past 2 years I have been in my own apartment paying my bills on time including my rent, Gas and Electric, cable bill, food and bare necessities. I’ve always been a firm believer in God and he has never not answer the prayer did I have prayed to him. Recently 4 months ago I unexpectedly was laid off of my job I was a driver for a mental health facility for the past 2 years. One day I went to work excited and ready to do my job as usual and I was informed that I no longer had a job, so I felt as though the rug was pulled from underneath of me falling flat on my face. Within the past 4 months I have been looking for jobs with no success and in the process I have fallen behind on my rent and other bills. My landlord is currently in the eviction process and she told me I have about two to three weeks to come up with the money before the eviction process is carried through. I am 4 months behind on rent which equals a total of almost $2,500 not including my that need to get paid. I’m not really worried about the cable and the luxuries I’m just worried about a place to call home and Gas and Electric in hot water. I need a total of around $3,000 to help me get on my feet and pay all the bills that I need to pay the Necessities not the luxuries. I hope that this letter will reach someone but I have prayed about it and I know it will reach my guardian angel and God will yet again come through for me in this storm that I am currently in but it will not last so I’m having faith that it will reach the right person at the right time and they will donate to me thank you I appreciate it and be blessed and have a safe Day thank you.
A few years ago I bought a small apartment for my family on a mortgage. My wife and I have two small children, a girl of 4 years old and a boy of 7 years old. They dream of their little corner in the apartment. And everything was fine, the money I earned was enough for life and repayment of the mortgage. I was not officially a rabbil and paid me stably and in full for my working hours. But at the beginning of 2019, I became seriously ill and could not work for 3 months. Since I did not earn anything, I could not pay for the mortgage. And the bank offered to take another loan (on unfavorable conditions for me) to pay off the debt, which I did. While I was sick, I was reduced my salary and accrued fines for not completed work that I took before the illness. I did not receive money for the last work done and turned out to be due. When I arranged, there was no such arrangement. I immediately left this job, and could not find a new job with the same income level. We reduced the cost of food and virtually eliminated the cost of clothing, excluded any entertainment (In this mode, we have been living for 6 months). The measures taken to save the family budget were not enough, but there was nothing more to reduce. After a while, we no longer had enough funds to secure two loans, debts began to accumulate. And now my family is close to losing the only housing. Since our apartment is simple and not very good, there is no way to exchange for a simpler one and make the difference to pay off the debt. Banks do not want to find a profitable solution for both parties and do not restructure loans. It’s easier for a bank to take out housing and sell it at auction. I turned to the government of our country with a request to help with the current situation, but I was refused, they say it’s my fault that I did not calculate my capabilities. Relatives and friends helped as they could. I tried to find help in the interior of the country, but found only scammers. I ask for help from everyone who sees this, because I have lost hope for help from the side of our government and fellow citizens.
Currently, total arrears, including late fees, are approximately $ 50,000. Please help because I can’t cope with the situation on my own. Constant thoughts of eviction are introduced into diplomacy.
Thanks to everyone.
Thank you for taking the time to read! I am looking for a miracle. I have always worked hard, but never lucky enough to not struggle. I usually manage to get by but the last year has really flipped my for a loop. We had a horrible hurricane that put us out of work for months, caused severe damage to my fathers home and just reeked havoc on our lives. I found out I was sick in May, have been in and out of the hospital ever since. I have not been able to work and am now not able to cover my expenses. I have officially exhausted my savings and don’t have any options to borrow without employment. It could be many months before I receive disability and it just seems hopeless. I have an eviction notice, overdue bills, a non working car, kids college tuition due and medical expenses that I just cant pay. My fiance and I have postponed our wedding. We have dreamed of a May 4th wedding to celebrate our first date, Star Wars and our extreme love for the movies. I have a fantastic father that has given me the joy of being a true Daddy’s girl. He served in the Navy and gave me a great childhood in every way. He is now a disabled veteran and also notable poet. I want so bad to be able to help repair his home, care for him as he has done for me and take him to do things he would enjoy. I care for him the best I can and would literally do anything for him. I am also the very proud mother of two great kids. Well, they are 17 and 20 so I guess I’m supposed to pretend they are adults but to me they are still the bundles of pride and joy that make my life worth living. I have never been well off, I have always had to pinch pennies and budget every dollar. But my kids made me feel like I give them the world. Yet, I am so ashamed of the struggles we have faced, the sacrifices they endured and all the things they went without. I do not want them to suffer because of me. I want to be able to be proud and have the peace of mind to sleep at night and not worry. I have no set amount that I need. I literally have zero. I work as much as I can, and will do anything I can to help my family. I feel like such a failure and cant take much more. I am terrified that I will be evicted for being behind, have another medical emergency or just not able to afford normal things like presents for holidays, a decent vehicle or a home I wont lose. I am out of time and have to do something. My landlord is very strict, my health is declining and I feel like I am out of options. The stress and depression have really started to take a toll on me. I would love to finally not be behind on bills and be able to help my family and other people when they need it. I am always sad when I hear of other friends or people that are sad and suffering and there is nothing I can do. Please help me get out of a lifetime rut of being behind and struggling. A small miracle, one lucky break, could change my life. I am hoping for my miracle.
I am writing asking for help getting caught up on bills. I am 53 and live with my 23 year old daughter. We have had a rough year. I’m in a downward spiral I can’t stop.
Last November my health got bad. By January I was no longer able to work. I signed up for disability and am still waiing. At that time we had another roommate and with my little.savings we were doing ok. Then in February the roommate refused to pay bills but didnt move out for a month. Covering that was a hit on our carefully planned budget.
Next in March my daughters father suffered a cardiac arrest. He went into a vegetative state which he never came out of and passed away 3 weeks later. My daughter was his next of kin so responsible for all medical decisions. Due to this sadness and grief a lot of work was missed. He passed away with no life insurance so his funeral came as another unexpected expense.
In August we were just getting close to caught up on bills when my daughter was driving and got in a one vehicle wreck which totaled our car. No, she wasnt drinking or texting. Her grief just hit her and she started crying. She should have pulled over but was just trying to make it home. It happened just a couple miles from here. Thank god she was okay but due to the previous bad luck our car insurance was lapsed so now no vehicle. Taking a Lyft back and forth to work was eating up funds. Luckily about a month ago my daughters dads significant other bought a new car so gave my daughter her dads old car. (They were co-owners thats why my daughter didn’t get it when he passed away).
Anyway at this point we can’t get caught up. Every month we are facing eviction or getting a disconnect letter on some utility. We have cut back all we can. We have no cell phones or cable. We do have internet, its our only form of communication. My daughter needs grief counseling and I need to see a doctor and get back on my medications but we have to catch up bills first.
$2000 would be wonderful. That way everything would be current. We can manage regular monthly expenses. Anything you can send towards that will help. Right now our electric is $308, internet around $150, gas is $226, and rent is $844. The other would be spent to get our cell phone caught up and turned back on, get car insurance, and go to the doctor and get my meds.
I am truly grateful for any help. I’m out of options. Help can be sent to paypal.me/KellyBlanton
Thank you for your consideration
We are the Namack Family. I am Jessica and my husband is Michael. We have gone through the hardest year of our lives. With barely any support we keep hitting trial after trial. With my mom passing away last year and his uncle passing away, life has been hard. We both work very hard to keep everything together. Just this week, I blew out a tire, pay rent and phone bill. Then in two weeks my rent is due again. My husband is in the Army National Guard, and he has been trying everything he can to support me and him. On top of it all, we are behind on insurance. We are asking for 600 dollars to help us get ahead next month so we can move forward and advance our life for the future. I have done absolutely everything I can do. We both have two jobs, and we are just very behind due to a total misunderstanding. I can take care of the rest of the bills. After my mom passed away and I didn’t make it through bootcamp I fell into a deep depression causing me to almost fall out of all the things me and my husband had accomplished. God has been blessing us, and for once in my life I have worked harder than I ever have. I pray that maybe someone could help us and bless us. It isn’t easy getting started in this world. If I do not pay this rent tomorrow, we will be charged an extra 450 dollars causing us to most likely lose everything we have accomplished. I am so thankful for the roof over my head but I cannot just let one little issue ruin where I am at right now. I don’t like reaching out for help. But I am being forced to ask for help. Our rent is $450. Our insurance is up to $200 this month. And my phone bill is behind $200. The $600 would help get a lot of this out of the way. I am very stressed and concerned. I have moved so many times in my life and for the first time in my life I feel like I have stability. We are 100 short of how much we owe tomorrow. I hope you would please help me get this together, we are so close to being all caught up.
Thank you for listening. PayPal.me/jesanamack
I need emergency help. I have not many options. I am a divorced father with a high school senior… facing eviction. This is the short version of the long story. I married in 2000 and by 01 moved 900 miles to Atlanta with Missus and a six year old step son. Baby girl was born in 02. We divorced in 12 but stayed focused on the kids. When it was time for my daughter to enter high school I lived in a bad neighborhood. At least one with bad schools. Her mother and I wanted to assure a good education for her. Knowing that individually, neither of us could afford it, but we moved to a much nicer part of town with a school district in one of the richest areas of Atlanta proper and enrolled her. She has had an excellent high school career with national honors society, 5 to ten different clubs, elected to student government, volunteer work, to when I saw her on the news giving a compelling and captivating speech when the students walked out due to the school shootings and the lack of safety. I could not be prouder. Her mother and I were not the best of roommates for her, not seeing eye to eye on much. She endured. Now, midway through her senior year her classmates who live in the same complex get to watch her stuff thrown into the parking lot so anybody can have their pick of it. That would be more than traumatic. I’m not sure how you come back from that. Her mother survived a severe and mutilating staff infection last year and has yet to return to the work force. This leaves me holding 3 jobs, punching 84 hours per week. No I never sleep. How is it possible? Well, I work in the hospitality industry. A childs wage. Being promoted all the way to GM and sent out of state for years, still there was no stability. Sure I am underemployed. But it is not that we do not have it or cant make it, we are just out of position.I am facing eviction on Monday. I am a few months behind. I have over at least $500. I need $3000 more. This would put us back on track, and give us time to make the needed changes. Really I just want my baby to graduate happy. If anyone was able to help, I would be deeply indebted and motivated. I don’t even have a problem paying back. The raise is next month. But after all of the denials and exhausting the possibilities, I need help.
I have no idea where to start… you’ve probably heard that many times before I’m guessing. But seriously, where does one begin when asking a stranger for help?
I’m in my late 30’s, a mother, a full time worker, and very much in debt. It started years ago when we had our home repossessed. This was due to my Husband losing his job with no notice or redundancy, the company he worked for went bust so we used our savings to pay the mortgage. The savings ran out, and then we lost everything.
A few years later I find that I still have not caught up. I’m always waiting until pay day, and within a week, I’m waiting for the following months pay day. You see I’m in debt, a lot of debt. I’m ashamed to say around £8k, and I don’t know how to get out of it. My credit rating is very bad so a loan is out of the question, and I’ve taken out pay day loans just to try and keep my head above water, but alas… this has left me in an even worse situation. If I could clear the debt and have a new slate, I know I could provide for my family with a good budgeting plan in place. But that’s easier said than done. The bills every month are leaving me with a small amount to try and stretch, and I’m getting myself into a bigger hole.
I have worked since I was 15, I’ve always tried to better myself even though I have ran into one blow after another. But I count my blessings, I have the most amazing children and I will do anything for them, anything at all. I’ll go without to make sure they have what they need, and I don’t ever want them to know the financial struggle I face every single day. I don’t want them to know I’m laying awake at night scared for the morning and the letters and phone calls I might receive relating to money. They understand that Mummy can’t afford certain things, but they are good kids and they don’t pressure me or get upset.
And this is where I really could do with some help if at all possible. I have fallen behind with the rent on our council home, after nearly a year of almost getting it back on track. I’m so disappointed in myself. I have to pay £839.69 or I am facing eviction – and this amount is going up weekly. I have no money in the bank, I paid £100.00 on the rent this week but it isn’t enough. My car is late on its MOT, it’s due to go in tomorrow. I’m scared as I can’t afford to even pay the £35.00 for the MOT, and my car is an old car. And if it fails, how do I get to work, public transport is too expensive. You see, I’m in a real mess. And I don’t want to try and create a sob story, but I am battling with my mental health. I suffer from severe anxiety due to a number of reasons, and going to work everyday is something I need to do, I can’t let it beat me, as much as sometimes I just want to bury my head in the sand, I know that will not get me anywhere.. Tempting as it is. I can’t remember what it is like to be able to have a full nights sleep and not get up in the morning with a huge heavy weight in your stomach and on your shoulders that you carry around all day. I just want to be able to feel mentally at ease again and to stop worrying every single second.
Well, if you got this far, thank you for reading. And I hope you have a good day.
Thank you again, and I’m genuinely sorry I’ve had to ask for help.
Having exhausted all other methods of help, I come to you embarrassed yet desperate. It seems unfathomable that an unknown stranger could help me, and yet here I am asking, no begging, for your help.
My name is Donald Kolar, my wife of 24 years is Shari Kolar. We are both in our late 50’s, and, in the process of filing for Disability. My case will be going to court by the end of this year or first of 2020. I have already sent my final paperwork in and am awaiting my court date. Each of us has a Service Dog to assist us. I am a brittle diabetic with complications and have a diabetic alert dog named Ceska. Shari has Sirius, who makes it possible for her to leave the house due to agoraphobia and panic attacks.
Having no family able to help us we have exhausted our savings. We have applied for and are receiving Medicaid and SNAP benefits. Our application for temporary financial aid is in the works but had to be restarted after 2 months because one of my doctors did not submit my diagnosis on time. Meanwhile, having no money, all of our bills are 2+ months in arrears. We face eviction on 10/11/19 and our electricity will be disconnected on 10/10/19.
We had hoped and planned to have enough assets to get us through my disability determination and to an award. We underestimated and honestly do not know what to do. Being on the brink of homelessness and living in our van with New York’s winter approaching is a horrible position to be in. We have been told by the Department of Social Services to find a rental including utilities for around $650 per month that accepts 2 larger dogs. For weeks we have been scouring the area, newspapers, Marketplace, Facebook, online, and, even just driving around in search of “For Rent By Owner” signs to call on.
I have estimated that we would need approximately $6, 500 to cover our arrears. In addition we need help in obtaining toiletries, cleaning supplies, gas and insurance for our van, upcoming vet exams, shots, and dog food. We need these supplies to hold over until my Disability is awarded. Finally I am begging for help with shelter until I am able to find a rental that meets Social Services limitations, and, our requirements with the 2 service dogs. I realize that is an incredible request of a complete stranger. I would gladly discuss and provide proof of any of my requests. I am not so much asking for a hand out as a hand up to get us through the next few months so we can once again become stable and able to live within our means. With a humble heart and faith in the goodness of mankind, I thank you for your consideration.
Hello! Hope all are having a wonderful day! I recently did a bit of research online about looking into donations for help with my situation and came across this site, so here I am and here’s my story. In the past 6 months I’ve been struggling severely with my depression and anxiety. So severe I even contemplated suicide, I just wanted to give up on life, feeling completely defeated at everything. No motivation, no positive outlook on anything and then i would feel so awful for feeling that way, which only made me feel worse. It was a horrible cycle. Suffering with panic attacks from becoming overwhelmed with my thoughts and even just talking about it. It definitely took a toll on my life and affected my 2 daughters as well as family. I’m greatly appreciative for my family as they have been very helpful during my hardship, I honestly don’t know how i would’ve got through this if it wasn’t for them. Moving forward, Im dealing with my illness in more positive and healthier way, and my daughters are doing much better now that they see I’m doing better. Children really do pay attention to everything. I now have professional help, I am making good progress and I’m so thankful for it! However, with what i consider the worst part of life for me, I loss jobs due to my illness and not mentally being able to maintain one because of my illness. Therefore, I became delinquent on alot of my utility bills and worst I’m now faced with losing my home. I’ve made little progress with getting some of my utility bills in a better standing but I still have catching up to do. Recently I’ve been summons to appear in court October 8th 2019 by my landlord for the current balance of $2240.88 for rent not including any late fees, attorney fees or any consequential expenses. I’m in the process of securing full-time employment to make payments and fully secure my home again. I’ve been doing small jobs here and there through temporary agencies in between time. This has been very challenging to say the least, as the last thing i would ever want to happen is to lose my daughter’s and I home but I’m staying positive and optimistic, pushing through and regaining myself. With that being said, I’m requesting a donation for $3,000 to be able to make the needed payments for my home and remaining utilities. As I know this will lift a tremendous weight off my shoulders, giving me a jumpstart and allowing me to confidently get back on track with my life and to continue to move forward with my little family. Any documentation needed to further support my story, I will gladly provide upon request.
Hi, My name is Ken and I need your help. After living in my rented house for 19 years, my landlord decided she wants her house back because she feels her rent to me is too low. I have never been late with a $1600 rent payment in those 19 years! But she decided to serve me with a 60 notice to kick me out. I have no place to go and with rents so high where my family lives, moving expenses and find a place to go will be nearly impossible. I am asking to raise $10,000 to cover major moving expense and costs to move into another place and start over. Please help me and my family. My court ordered move out date is November 1st and I hope to move way before then. Thank you.
I’ll try to keep this simple. Feel free to skip to the last paragraph. So I mainly grew up with just my sister and father. My moms story is quite extensive. She was kicked out, and my sister eventually was too. I however was sent to a program called Job Corps where I met a ton of great people. I had only been into music.. nothing else. My father has had a band for quite a while so that explains why I loved to create.
So do job corps really helped me socially. Not only that, a lot of people like what I create. I recently got into producing my own music as well. However I doubted my talents until I posted songs online just for myself. All of a sudden I noticed I had been shouted out by artists I look up to (they’re not huge… yet) and had reached 35k plays in two days!! Got a blog post on my music, and a cool small following.
Ive always wanted to find a career I can really succeed in and sort of try to bring my family back together. Not like as far as marriage goes. Just actually being able to spend time together and live life how we’ve always dreamt. Or how I always dreamt..
As years went went on I gradually began to lose control due to depression, insomnia, anxiety. Lost my job, got evicted from my apartment, and went from $7k in savings to -$1k in debt, lost funding for therapy, and had a visit to the ER from a severe panic attack… all on my birthday. Ended up moving into a home with some chill people. But a certain couple want me out.
So in turn, I’ve been doing research on how to be homeless… and how to get out of it. See, I’ve worked with my father since I was 9. We did landscaping up until I was sent to job corps. But I also had to sell things to help my dad not worry about bills… without knowing haha. I was 9yrs old selling candy.. and other stuff… while hiding the money in his dirty laundry to act like he forgot it. I’d also go pay bills he was behind on and act like maybe some church friends helped out. Just things to keep the lights and water on. So I guess I grew up way too fast. But I always felt bad.
So currently on the verge of being homeless isn’t scary to me. I’ve experienced enough in life that this would just be a bump in the road. It’s just tiring after a while when you’re working your butt off to just be discouraged and question what you’re even doing this for. My goal is just to make a living off what I love to do. Then invest for future generations that could eventually grow into something helpful for people like me. People who don’t want to depend on others and actually work!
I do DoorDash just to get food and some money towards rent. But the environment has grew sour. My family depended on me and now that I’m not in a good place I feel worthless. So much to the point I don’t talk to anyone anymore. I just lock myself away making music all day or working. I don’t sleep much so I have nothing but time. But it becomes dangerously exhausting.
Any and all help would not be taken for granted. And it’d be used to establish something and escape the environment that’s meant for me to adapt to and become another statistic. What I need is literally a place to call my own. Like an studio apartment where I can be free of negative energy while getting on my feet. I’m not looking for $100,000. I do have a goal of like $5-$10k to allow me to get back into my investments and produce like I used to. My goal is to use the free time to go to school, get training for a well paid field, and test the waters to see if I can make the music thing really happen.
Honestly always feel like crying when I’m being held back from working. I finally worked my butt of to pay off tickets, bank debts, and get my car situated to keep doing DoorDash deliveries since I’m a preferred driver! So just know your donation isn’t for personal gain. I’m trying to prove to the world I can be something. I want to create jobs for people. I want to give back. I want to do everything I see people fortunate enough to do. I want to be able to cover medical costs to better my health. Cover medical bills for family. I just want to.. be.. something in this short amount of time we have and actually leave something for the future.
