Hi my name is nicole and to make a long story short I was supposed to start working for a company for a job that I would’ve loved . Ive been waiting to start with them for a long time now but they told me today their production dept shut down and they’ve basically just wasted a year of my time . I owe 8000 in rent amongst many other bills and credit card debt. I am ready to give up on life at this point which is what brought me here .I would greatly appreciate any kind of help . Thank you
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 have the ugly pink notice (just removed from my door) and I’m desperate for help.
I have been trying to pay off several small loans (family, payday loans) to stay afloat. In November, one of the family loans needed to be paid in full immediately; my relative had their own needs. I thought I’d be able to pay off that loan without an adverse effect, but my November rent came back. I did what I could to fill in the gaps, but I was unable to find what I needed. I was unable to pay both November and December (and court/late fees) with one paycheck.
I have a few options for help and enough to pay most of the court fees, but I’m still about $1500 short. I work full time and can’t skip work (or really take calls during the day) without getting into trouble with the bosses. I always try to pay it forward when someone helps me out, and will continue that habit as long as I am able.
My backup plans and backup backup plans have been falling through; I don’t drive or own a vehicle, so I can’t add a rideshare or delivery job. I applied for a less expensive apartment that has a no-rent-this-month special and was denied due to my current situation. I don’t have family in the area or friends with extra space. My cats don’t need to be put on the street (I don’t want to, either, but I’m more worried about them).
I don’t have holiday plans to salvage or travel to rearrange. I only have myself and two very sweet cats that lack outdoor skills. I’m in Colorado in December, so I can’t really get a cheap tent and find a park that’s temporary resident friendly. We’ve already had two significant snowstorms, and one of them led to ice-covered streets and sidewalks that weren’t cleared for a week — and I hit a patch of that ice and fell hard enough to injure my knee. (The other knee is frequently injured and generally hurts.)
I am continuing to seek local help; ideally, I’ll be able to pay off my balance before things get really bad. Beginning in January I will be going to the closest branch of my bank for a (certified) money order to pay rent every month; even after my finances balance out, I would prefer that certainty to relying on automatic payments.
Any help is appreciated.
A year ago today, I had no idea where I would be at this moment. My husband and I had a perfect life from the outside looking in, however I began to grow increasingly concerned with his behaviors as I noticed that he seemed to be self medicating. Fast forward to April, he was fired from a wonderful job, too scared and embarrassed to tell me the truth and come home ( he was working out of state) and before I knew what was happening, had locked himself up in a motel room, drinking and gambling away our savings, leaving me with 5 beautiful children (3 under school age) and no way to care for them.
After many prayers and tears, once the money was gone, I was able to get him home and into treatment. Part of this journey included a 5 month separation, me going back to work full time (which ended up costing more than I was making after childcare and gas), and him taking any odd jobs he can find to make ends meet- which we still haven’t been able to do.
While I am so proud to say that he has now been sober with the help of a doctor and intensive outpatient treatment for almost 6 full months and our family is back under the same roof, I am worried sick, as we are about to be evicted from our home. Our landlord has been wonderful to work with us and allowed us to make late payments the last 3 months ( after over a year of living here, and even paying early many months) however, we are now behind $750 for this month and still have not paid the $100 in late fees from November. The only vehicle which holds all of our children is up for repossession, and our water and electricity are schedule for disconnect on 12/16 and 12/23, with a special needs child who has a surgery scheduled for 12/30. The children have medicaid and we do receive state assistance for food, however, in order to bring all outstanding bills current, we are still lacking approximately $1800. We have cut out any and all unnecessary expenses, and it is so frustrating to still not be able to make it.
It is my hope that someone will help us get back up on our feet, and that one day we will be able to pay it forward. Thank you for taking the time to read our story.
So I am going to give a break down on the past year and how I’ve come to be where I am today.
The new year was supposed to bring many good things as we all hope for, but in my case life took a turn for the worse. The father of my children and I have been together since 15 years old, so we’ve come across many obstacles like any relationship, until the verbal abuse had gotten so hurtful. Once he knew the words weren’t hurting anymore, it moved on to physical abuse. My children look up to their dad as Superman but to me I see someone I fear. We were always a team but nothing seemed good enough for him anymore. The abuse got more frequent, the bruises became more noticeable. .. I felt I had become a human punching bag with no way out. Until the day came where he tried to push me down our two flights of stairs in our home. At that moment I knew things would never go back to the good ol days. Unfortunately I was not making enough financially to hold down the fort on my own so we decided to sleep in separate beds to try and cope until one of us could get on our own. All went well until the day came when I had the sheriff knocking on my door to serve me a notice to quit. At that moment it had come to my attention that my ex held off on October’s rent without telling me. End of October I Ended up losing my job because my means of transportation had been wiped away. With everything falling apart I still try to make the day great and show my two amazing kids how strong their mama is, but sometimes we all hit that rock bottom feeling. I am there! At this point my ex moved out, left me with an eviction in motion, backed up light bill and all the other stress that comes with these life issues. I have until December 16th to leave my home with my kids & I have absolutely no savings or a place to go until I get on my feet. I do currently receive state benefits which is a huge help as far as grocery shopping goes, but trying to find a place to move with zero income seems close to impossible. Every day I am applying and making the necessary moves but some help would be tremendous. I’m giving this a shot with an open mind. I also know my story may sound horrible to some, but I am a fighter and he is out the picture which means I am safe again! If anyone could possibly contribute anything at all, the amount of stress that will be lifted off my shoulders will make me feel alive again. Any thing helps, and nothing is too small. We all need some help sometimes, it’s just up to us to put our pride aside and ask.
Thank you for taking the time to read & I appreciate any and all support!
A mom who won’t give up
Hello to all caring human beings,
My name is Kevin and I am 61 years young. My common law wife, myself, and our two cats will soon be evicted from where we are currently staying, at an Extended Stay hotel in the Metro Washington D.C, area. I am not normally one to ask anybody for financial assistance, but these are extraordinary times for myself and family. The following is our story.
I had been employed as a CPR and First Aid instructor for the past 12 years. I lost my job at the beginning of August of this year, 2019. My wife has been unable to work for several years because of mental health issues. She was denied any disability benefits even though her longtime doctor confirmed she is unable to hold continuous employment. We were evicted from our condo two years ago because we could not make rent payments without her additional source of income. We ended up at an Extended Stay hotel because we could still afford that on my income and they allow pets. We have been living here for almost two years. After losing my job things became desperate. We have no family to provide any assistance and our friends tried to help but there was just not enough money for the support we require because I am having trouble finding any employment that will pay the bills. I have had my drivers license and car registration suspended because I can no longer pay for car insurance, a requirement in Virginia. This makes it even more difficult for me to find a job that will support us, We have turned to Churches and Government Agencies for assistance and all we were able to obtain was food stamps and Medicaid for my wife. Needless to say, we are desperate, dreading becoming homeless, and losing our cats. Also, in her current mental state, my wife is slipping further into a bi-polar depression. The staff at the hotel have been very kind and human toward us but they have no choice but to evict. We need immediate help desperately.
The eviction notice gives an amount past due, including attorney fees of a bit over $ 5500.00 and this does not include the rent building up since the notice was given earlier this week. Also, in order to get insurance and have my license reinstated at the DMV, I am looking at an additional $ 1500.00. Then we have to come up with payment for a few more months of rent at approximately $ 1600.00 a month and hopefully this will give enough time for me to become employed again. I have a wide skill set and a college degree but I feel my age is hindering me from finding meaningful employment or any employment that might support us. I have been working since I was a teen and being unemployed is a new experience for me.
Now, after we add up the funding we require just to remain in our hotel room and to be able to use our car again – approximately $ 12,000.00 – we feel desperate and defeated. We pray there are some human beings in this world, who may be more fortunate than us, that will offer assistance to some good people and their cats. I am working on getting our eviction notice scanned in and posted along with a picture of our family. Any help you may provide would be greatly appreciated. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. We thank you in advance for your support.

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…
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.
