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.
My name is Brittany, and I just moved to California to follow my dreams, and to find healing. I have Lupus and I’m currently on dialysis. I knew Cali was the place for me, but I didn’t know it would be so rough starting out here. I’m aware of how expensive it is here, but I didn’t think I would lose my job so fast. Unfortunately I was layed off literally 2 weeks after moving into my studio apartment mid August 2018. I live in Canoga Park, CA and I’m about to be evicted if I can’t come up with the money to pay for rent in full for this month (September), next month (October), and court fees. I currently only have $800, and my rent is $1484 a month for a studio apartment. The total I owe for this month of September 2018 is $1562.61(including water, sewage, and late fee). I will have to pay $1562.61 plus $1484 plus court fees. I was told today, 9/22/18 that they sent my case to the legals and that I will be evicted if I can’t get the money. Now I have a new job and haven’t had enough time to work to save enough to be able to pay rent. My last job also did not pay me my last check, and that’s what really hurt me financially. Anything helps, I really don’t want to be homeless and I just moved here. There are very little resources here that will help at all for people like me. I appreciate all who take the time to read or donate. Thanks!

This is very hard to write as I’ve never been in this situation, I was always able to help others. I am going through a horrible, unexpected divorce and trying to fend for my 6 year old son and I. I injured myself at work, never ever have before, and am currently on 60% of my income. Not only do I have the decrease, I am missing a second income, including my original rent money due to it being taken from my spouse I’m divorcing. I received paperwork for an eviction but can do a stipulation to avoid this. I need help. As embarrassing as this is, facing the humility is worth it because my son doesn’t deserve to not have a roof over his head. I cannot look into his eyes and let him down. I’ve contacted local resources, however, since I have an income I do not qualify for any program or assistance. The ones I do qualify for (2) are out of funds. I am in need of $1500 to stop this eviction. Now I know this doesn’t fix my issue all the way, but since I know I will be on my income only, I will be able to cut corners and budget for that. I won’t be in this predicament the following month…but I’m so scared. I need help. And fast. I’m hoping someone out there will help us avoid sleeping on the streets in the PNW. I’ve come a long way in life and honestly at this time have been dealt a very bad hand. I am begging at this point…I did not expect this and am so incredibly embarrassed. I also have no family here in Washington. Please help us.
I am writing my story to reach out to someone, and or many. We all go through hardships at some in life, and we all need someone to lean on during those times. This is my time. I got behind on my rent, I was out of work for a month do to an accident, which called my bills to back up, and the money to be slowly coming in. I am now facing eviction. My child, and I do not have anywhere to go if it goes that route. I am back at work, yet my landlord doesn’t want to wait for the money. He’s already filed court proceedings which will take place next week. I am swallowing my pride, and reaching out to at least someone for help. If you can find it in your heart to help us that would be greatly appreciated. Whatever donations you can sow into our lives we will be forever grateful. I need 2,000 to keep a roof over our heads or we will be going to a shelter. We all make mistakes. I am human, and I do not want my child to suffer the most.
Can someone please help us! Please! Paypal.me/Godsgrace8
Hello everyone , my name is Jonathan and to get an idea and visuals of why I am on here trying something I never thought I would commit too , yet I am here and with my head held high . My spouse and I live in a small apartment meant with two beautiful girls who are eccentric , loving , happy , and curious to the world around . Currently I am the sole provider due to my spouse and I having our 2nd child who is only 7 months and not being able to afford child care the mother is home with the girls being the strong woman she is and holding us together . I work full time and with a whirlwind of emergencies happening all at once we fell victim to late rent ,medical bills , along with vehicle repairs as well . Currently we are in need of help to cover rent for just this one late month and will help get us back on our feet . Me being the father and doing all I can to support my family I can’t bare to think of us having to live out a car or on the streets with two beautiful kids who deserve the world . I may not be all I can be but I sure am trying to be there and work hard 24/7 for my family and to provide. I fell behind 1,500 and that covers water , rent and late fees , although any help will do and greatly appreciate the love during these tough times .
Hello, my name is Ivan, I’m almost 30, and this is the lowest point of my life.
Recently, I’ve been down on my luck. I have lost my job, my wife left me, and I was forced to to move back home with my mother, who only works part-time. Since then, I’ve been struggling with part-time jobs, just trying to survive through the hard times.
I must say, the manual labor in a third-world country is no fun. Working 14 hours shifts every single day, sometimes more, with no protection, or health insurance, in a case of an accident. But, after a while, I got used to it, we started saving some cash and things started looking up for me. But, then again, life punched me in the face, and it punched hard. I got almost deadly ill due to not having adequate work protection, and because what my mother made barely covered medical expenses, bills started pilling up.
Now that I am finally healthy again, I’m back to work, and making some money, but due to bills, electric and water supply companies are threatening us with court action and and shutting down the supplies.
And here comes the part where I have to ask any kind soul for the desperate help we need. It is funny how we always say that when you’re down, you find out who is really your friend. The sad truth is, when you hit rock bottom, everyone looks the other way.
So, I have to hope that there is at least someone out here willing to help.
Now, the good, and the sad thing about our bills is that our country is really poor, so, the unpaid bills for seven months, for electricity, water, and similar expenses turn out to be a little under thousand dollars, with the current exchange rate. The bad thing is, with our current income, we would need about a year to repay that.
The total amount of money that we have to pay right now is 97.872 dinars, or, when you change it to dollars, it is somewhere around $950. For comparison how of how much that is to us, the two of us made around $180, combined. And that is without all the expenses, like food, or drinkable water, or basic hygiene products. So, as you can see, we are in a really bad place right now. Not to mention that, if we end up in court, we will probably lose the house, as well as any last bit of hope we still have.
So please, if there is anyone willing to help,
I usually don’t like to put my personal business on here but this has to do with my child and I definitely don’t like asking for anything but I honestly deep down inside from the bottom of my heart could use some help right now.. I worked for Howard County with special needs children for years n years and them wheel chairs have taken a toll on my back.

I want to NO NEED TO keep a roof over my sons head.Hes all that matters right now. I been taking care of Ky since he was born by myself and things have just gotten out of hand recently.A WHOLE LOT OF MEDICAL BILLS, CAR REPAIRS AND money I had to use to fix my last place when my roommate up and left Me with all the damages and repairs. Me also being a nice person I am and like helping people rented a car for someone and they got in a accident with the car and stopped giving me money to pay on it after 2 months. Leaving me with a credit card bill of close to $6,000. I hate asking anyone for anything bc I’m used to doing on my own but I’m not ashamed to say I NEED HELP!Please help with what you can or even just a SHARE can make a difference. My baby is about to start school… I have to make sure he’s ok before anything. Anything and EVERYTHING will help. I am working with a disability lawyer now and as known when getting a lawyer for denial of disability you always get approved and will receive all backpay. At this point I do not know what else to do and everything donated I will now consider it Stickly A LOAN! Am I embarrassed YES!!!! but I will not let my son have nowhere else to go.

Hello my name is Antonio. I am a husband and father of 3 wonderful kids who don’t deserve the agony I am about to endure. I got a call from my wie saying we received an eviction letter today saying that we have 5 days to vacate. Not what I needed to hear while driving home. She has never received such a letter before so she’s devastated. And of course my kids don’t know. My situation is probably the same as many. I was let go of a job that I actually moved to be closer to. Knowing that they still let me go. But things happen so I am not bitter and am over it. Finding another job was tough but I got hooked up with a temp agency. Pay is not great but it’s steady work. I also got another fulltime job at one of the theme parks but I have yet to start. Actually Friday I have orientation but it came to late. I also do food delivery so I am busy but just couldn’t make enough to catch up. I don’t know if staying here is an option seeing as I have this notice but at the same time moving is difficult having an eviction on my record. Believe me i really don’t like asking for help and I would rather be the one helping out, but I am at the end of my rope and this is a desperate attempt for me to get back on track. Having googled “help with eviction ” and it sent me to this site. Hopefully god willing this might be the financial help we need. Thank you all in advance and be blessed. Paypal.me/Masskids
I’m asking for help to pay for moving expenses for my family and myself. My husband is blind and a stay at home dad to our two children, who are 8 and 2. I’m a manager for a well known auto parts company for the last 12 years. We have lived in the same rental trailor for over 8 years. Rent has consistently gone up. We live off of my pay of about $1000 every 2 weeks and his disability check of $752 per month. We’ve been denied survivors benefits for our children and since my husband was only 21 when he lost his sight, his assistance is as high as it will ever get. We live paycheck to paycheck and struggle to get by. Rent is always paid tho. Our landlord has decided to close his park and has only given us 2 weeks to find another place. I’ve found a place in the same school district for $850 a month, which is perfect…but they need first and last month’s rent, application fees, and security deposit up front. The total to move in is $2350. We currently don’t have any of it. We can’t ask our parents for help. My father has passed. My mother has scerosis of the liver and is hospitalized frequently. His mother has Parkinson’s and his father has stage 4 cancer. None of them are in a position to help. I have no idea where to turn or who to ask. I figure there’s no harm in asking here. I have to find a way before my family ends up homeless. Any help or advice is so greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

Hello, not sure how to start this so I’ll just jump right into it. My name is Christen and I am a full time student at UNT, and I live in an apartment in Denton at the moment. I am 23 years old and I work part-time at the grocery store ALDI. I come from an extremely poor family so I am already paying for my schooling myself. No one else could help with that at all. My mom is currently battling brain cancer so there’s no way I could ask my family for anything. My brother is the one helping her pay for everything since my dad is gone, and that already robs them of all their income. I am trying to finish school and pay it off so that I can get a better paying job to help my mom out. Right now I make just enough each month to barely pay off all of my bills as it is, so things were already stressful for me. I also already have anxiety, depression, and diabetes medications that I have to afford each month on my own, but sometimes I am not able to purchase them when I really need them because of my financial situation. So I am completely at a loss now. I was living in an apartment with two other girls, but one just completely ditched us and left without any warning on Friday. Now we have no way of contacting her for her portion of rent. The apartment employee didn’t ever get ahold of her either. So now we have to pay her $400 portion ourselves, even though we have no means to do so. Understandably we are extremely scared and stressed My roommate and I have been struggling to scrape together some money to cover it the past few days, but we still need $225 by tomorrow or we will have to pack up and leave. I really need to stay here because my schooling depends on it. I have severe anxiety and depression and this is all causing me too much agonizing stress to deal with. I don’t really know what to do honestly. I really don’t want to be homeless, so I am trying everything I possibly can. I’ve never asked for money on any site like this but I am hoping someone will see this and be able to help me out. I could even work out a way to pay you back if that is needed! Thank you and bless you endlessly if you are able to help at all!
May you find help with your struggles everyone.
I never thought I would end up in a situation where I would have to ask for charity but I see no other choice, I am 37 y/o and have Bipolar disorder, I´ve been out of work for three months now, I couldn’t afford healthcare anymore so I run out of medicine and recently I had to go through emergency cause I had a manic crisis from which I´m still recovering. I have a beautiful daughter with my ex GF, she´s two 1/2 years old, we separated last November after almost 3 years of tolerating abuse , she is very manipulative, psychologically violent and I would dare to say a liar in a sociopathic level, I had to break up with her because she hit me during a fight, and now that I´ve been struggling to recover from the breakup, months of depression and recent mental breakdown, she has taken advantage of my economical and health situation by lying and trying to burry me legally accusing me of being violent person, which is totally false, she took my daughter to another city without my permission, I haven´t seen her in almost a month, and got some very nasty documents from court. I recently spoke to her and she tried to blackmail me asking me for money. On the other hand I am just about to get evicted cause I cannot pay for my rent anymore, I´ve been trying to sell my art online, look for customers, sell stuff I have but I´ve had no luck and I can´t afford any legal services to solve the situation, nor time. I really don´t want to feel like I´m a victim of this situation but I don´t really see any hope any close, some money could really be of help right now.
Hello… to whoever is reading this.
I’ve spent the past few days applying for jobs and making phone calls and selling my belongings on the internet to try to catch up and it feels hopeless… so I’ve found this website as a bit of a last resort. A “Hail Mary” if you will…
My name is McKenzi and I worked in restaurants my whole life after being told by my family that I couldn’t amount to anything more than that. This year, I found a passion in music and realized I regretfully worked my youth away and never allowed myself to experience life outside of work. I quit my restaurant job and became a DJ, built my own label called Seductive Abduction and started traveling with production companies building stages for music festivals around the country. My heart has never been fuller and I’ve never known true happiness until I started working with music. I’ve been very blessed this year except recently, my past two gigs took a massive pay cut under a different management and now I am two months behind rent with a red negative in my bank account… I live in a small town so my back-up of DJing for pay does not support me financially at $50 a week…. I now FULLY comprehend the term “starving artist”. it’s honestly embarrassing for me to have tried to follow my dreams but ended up in debt and although my spirit is happy, my mind is plagued with anxiety about my credit going under for a corrective eye surgery in collections and impending eviction because I haven’t been able to pay rent. I’m humiliated to ask for help; my parents are not capable of helping me; my father is an alcoholic and a drug addict who lives on the street and I can’t help him if I can’t help myself. And I certainly don’t want to end up like him if I can’t get my life together. I have jobs lined up in a couple of weeks to work at the local YMCA but I’m afraid by the time I get paid… I might have run out of time. My landlord says he is renovating my apartment starting September 24 and that I must leave. I know the real reason is because I’m behind on the rent… anyway… I know that I’m rambling but I don’t know what else to say; I’ve never asked for help before. Like I said, this is a bit of a last resort. It would be a blessing if this works but I understand if it doesn’t. If this is a real opportunity that you offer people, then thank you for your acts of kindness.
hello there, I know this seems a little far fetched and a lot to ask for but it’s to help my mother out extremely and myself but mainly for my mom. She is the biggest blessing in my life and I wish I could bless this woman everyday for what she does for me. We’ve been evicted from multiple different apartments in our lives due to my moms past drug addiction/bad relationship and not being able to afford rent costs, I finally within the last 2 years have pulled my mom away from that bad place she was in and we have moved into a house for the first time ever in the last year. Herself and I are working on getting her completely sober and also working on some of my mental health problems and anxiety but we seem to have run into another eviction that is coming up really soon unfortunately. After she started getting sober, she got a seasonal job that had ended in January and since then, we haven’t been able to keep up with the bills, groceries, animal needs, hydro bills, and so many other things until she can find work again, but those are most important right now. She’s also shuffling with EXTRME dental costs to fix more than a few teeth which is putting a huge weight on our money and financial situation. I’ve attached a copy of how much rent we currently owe from May, we still owe that amount and the only reason he’s let us stay here is because we’ve agreed to try to continue paying our monthly rent but he is now trying to evict us for the rent we owe from February to May and has ordered us to pay this amount or we will be forced to be evicted by the end of September. Monthly rent is 1500$ here which we’ve still struggled to get the last few months, every month but we do manage. But now 6,190$ is way to much that we are unable to come up with. We really love the area we are in because it’s away from the bad parts of where my mom started her addiction, she’s really progressing here and and it’s our first home we’ve ever lived in which is extremely exciting. All she has is me and I know I’m not enough so this house is her safe haven, it’s where she feels the most comfortable and she feels like she’s able to succeed. We both don’t have much support or family because my dad had passed a little over 2 months ago and it’s still a big damper on our lives, we’ve tried to resort to every resource we possibly could for money help and I really don’t know what much else to do at this point besides look toward being homeless with our dog and cat in the next month which I’m really praying to god doesn’t happen, and a miracle will come my way.. My mom is the biggest role model and inspiration to me and I wish everyday I could give back to her and show her brighter days but it seems like our life always comes to some type of hault everytime we try to work on something good. I love her with all my heart and i am not the type of person to beg for help unless I can help in some way back but this is too serious of a situation that I know I can’t wait around for, the help is appreciated greatly and I will be forever grateful and thankful for you and your existence.
Thank you so much 🙏🏽☺
Hi to whoever reads this.
I am renting a small house from my son since 2016. He said I have until October to get out. Mind you I have paid my rent on time and sometimes early when he needed it.
He lost his job and needs to sell with a quick sale before the bank forecloses.
He lives in another house that he owns.
I am disabled and I live on Social Security disability, I pay $800.00 a month plus I pay all utilities. I do not have a savings or anything to sell to give me the money I need to move, pay some of the utilities here and get my $750.00 car fixed.
Yep I bought a car and the next week the timing chain is going.
The money to buy the car was from SSDI back pay and I got my little dog Mo the surgeries he needed which were almost as much as the car.
I have no money left. I make $1,678. a month and I have to go to the food shelf every month.
I’m screwed, I don’t know what to do and where to turn. I have no real family but my sick brother and my daughter. I doubt if my son will ever let me see my grandkids again. I had to use the last months rent money to put a deposit on another place. That was agreed upon when I gave him an $800.00 deposit when I moved in.
I’m so glad I’m moving. The house is really bad. The pipes are small so they clog and need work, the roof leaks in my bedroom and the whole bathroom floor and half the kitchen is caving in.
I just know this, I would never have let my disabled mother live in a house like this without helping her a little bit with paint or maybe mowing the lawn. The best thing would have been stopping the leak over my bed. I would have paid him to stop the leaks.
I love him very much and I wish I could help him in his time of need but all I can do is pray that he and his family can maintain their lifestyle that they are used to.
Most of the time that I lived here I could not walk. My daughter helped me as much as she could but she just got divorced and has her own health problems.
I need over $400.00 to pay the electric, I don’t know how much a timing chain for the Ford Focus is going to cost and there is a water bill coming that I have to pay that will be about $150.00 for 3 months.
I’m paying just about as much in the new place a month but in one lump sum of $1,100. a month. That includes everything and I don’t have to pay for the lawn upkeep.
I just need a boost, any amount to help me get out of this hole, mentally and physically.
I feel so alone and unloved. I miss my husband and I’m scared.
my name is Sam my husband is Matt we have a 7 year old son and a 15 year old son. We have honestly struggled for years off and on, then finally my husband landed a great job and things were starting to look up! About a year ago my youngest started getting sick all the time and we had no idea why he was constantly missing school and I was missing work. It took months drs kept telling us everything was just viral. He would get better and 2 days later he was sick again. I missed so much work I eventually lost my job, but with a lot of persistence we finally found a dr that knew what was the matter. We found out that he had low AIG which ment he wasnt producing antibodies. There were heavy long term dose of antibiotics given and trips to the hospital if his fever went over 101. It was really rough on everyone emotionally and financially. We have since made it through that and closely monitor his health but for the last 4 months he hasn’t been sick! Right around the same time he started getting better Matt’s work got very slow. And I took a job working in a shirt factory just to try to catch up even a little. In June I had to go out for carpal tunnel and cubicle tunnel surgery and because it was pre existing condition I had to go with no pay… I also wasnt fired so no option for unemployment… Matt’s work eventually laid him off due to lack of work and hes been mowing lawns and trying to do everything possible to make a few bucks to keep food on the table. We have gotten so far under at this point that what we are physically able to do isnt going to get us out of this hole we are now 3 months behind on rent and it’s only a matter of time till the eviction notice comes out electric has been shut off and as off now is only on because I have a protection from abuse order against my sons bio dad, and in pa if a pfa is in place the electric company must potion to have it shut off.
Things have really spun out of control for us and I dont know what to do but ask/ beg for someone to please help us!
My name is Rita , and I am a 100 percent disabled person who is renting a home in a development in Cherry Hill, NJ. I got a co-signer to help me, Myrna Zeilie, but her family will no longer allow her to assist me, as her health deteriorates.
I suffer from multiple illnesses, lymphedema, high blood pressure, asthma bronchitis, vertigo migraines, complex regional pain syndrome 1, neuropathy, gastroparesis, and arthritis in my elbows, wrists, lower back, and both ankles. I have broken both ankles, have had surgery three times on the right ankle, and an 8 inch plate with 8 pins remains in the right ankle. These are just a few of the reasons why I take over 17 pills and capsules a day. I long to get onto my feet and get off SSD someday.
I am not perfect. I haven’t had a perfect credit record. I have had bankruptcy. But I have done good things in life. I stayed with my mom until I was 33 when she was dying with stomach cancer, I nursed her home hospice until she died. Years later, I helped home hospice and stayed over nights every hospital stay with my brother Walter as he battled lung cancer and succumbed to it at the tender age of 58.
I raised two of my niece’s kids from infants, and lost a home to foreclosure in 2008 after 10 years. I have not owned a home since. I am a real estate broker Associate by trade, but due to all of my illnesses, have barely worked.
I rely on SSD, my daughter’s income, who suffers from crippling depression, and now my diabetic sister Brenda who is 63, and on SSI. Together we try to pay the rent here and we haven’t fallen behind yet.
There’s an association here that says we have to move immediately. The reason: breaking the rules by renting rooms in my home. I long for the day to have only my family in this home and owning it. To make a long story short, we have been here 6 months, have paid our bill, but must move unless I buy the home immediately. Also the owner is willing to sell to me. But I don’t have the funds. Or the kind of deposit to buy immediately.
I have multiple illnesses, a diabetic elderly sister, a 24 year old daughter suffering with crippling depression, and a 17 year old nephew suffering from ADD/AHD, all who will be displaced if I cannot buy this home immediately. I can document all of our illnesses upon request, and produce our SSD award letters.
I am African American, and one of a few here. More importantly, I take pride in this home. I just want my relatives to have a safe and secure place to live without the fear of being homeless. I am God fearing Roman Catholic person. I feel like the Devil is chasing me just because I want to live in a beautiful home. This home is everything I have ever dreamed of. Everyone in this house is counting on me to solve this. I am so stressed that I cannot sleep at night. I count the minutes, days, hours, to eviction. Every knock on the door scares me. Homelessness frighten me.
I have two college degrees. One from Camden County College in Blackwood, NJ, AAS in Business Administration Corporate Management, and one from Rowan University in Glassboro, NJ, Bachelor of Science in Business Administration Finance.
This house costs $292,000. I am asking for a grant of any amount towards the purchase price, made out to Keller Williams in Washington Twp. to help me purchase it, so that I don’t have to leave and be on the street with my family. Once I buy this house, we have enough monthly income to pay taxes, utilities and association dues between my sister, my daughter and myself. We also are willing to do work at home scenarios as well to help ourselves.
The realtor says immediately means by the end of September unless something comes up. I pray anyone can help us.
Hi my name is Stacy. My story of downfall started in December 2 days before Christmas when I had a miscarriage. It tore out family inside out . About 4 weeks later I just suddenly collapsed one day. I was not feeling well and thought I had the flu. I almost died from an infection growing in my stomach I did not know was spreading. After the hospital released me it was a long 6 weeks in bed. Then the severe depression started. I just couldn’t wrap m head around what I did wrong to lose my baby. I do not drink, do not do drugs. I lived a typical mom life. I started to go to a therapist for help, I just couldn’t myself alone, and lost.
Im the mean time dad ended up loosing his job trying to take care of me and the household. We unfortunately for the 1st time got behind on rent we now owe 1909 and 1500 to the lawyer to stay. We found a place that’s actually cheaper to move.
I am in the middle of battling for social security I have severe mental illness, from abuse physical emotional and sexual growing up. the day I turned 18 I left. I have no family to ask for help. Since I left when I was 18 i’ve been on my own. Ive always been in therapy and see a psychiatrist every month like I am suppose to.
But We have somehow fell into a really bad spot, I was so not okay after I lost the baby for 4 months. Poor dad tried so hard to work and take care of me. He tried so hard and ended up getting fired over it. He is such a good man and really did not reserve that, or to have to take care of me I am a 33 year old adult that, should be able to remember if I have take my meds or have an apt. and cant even do that. I write everything down to remember. So I have a wonderful family that I feel like I have put into a horrible situation because of my severe mental health issues.
So I have never done or asked for help I have always been able to find a way around everything that life has thrown at me. But were stuck and going to be homeless. I already had eviction papers served, we have tried so hard to work with these ppl and payments and they wont except anything but the entire of whats owed and then can do payments with the lawyer. or i leave sign my trailer over and no consequences.
If anyone at all can see to help a true family in need, now is the time we seriously need help before were homeless.
Thank you so very much for reading.
My name is Mila Kay and I’m a senior in high school, trying my best to get off to a good college next year. I’ve grown off in an economically disavantaged family for as long as I can remember, so I’ve always been used to having to make my own money. I have a job right now to do just that. Saving money didn’t seem like such a difficult thing until about a week ago when my mom kicked me out of the house because she found out that I have a girlfriend. I made the mistake of leaving my phone out in the kitchen, and she saw loving messages come in from my girlfriend, Sara. She confronted me immediately, treating me as though I was a stranger. She said I had lied to her, betrayed her. She told me to gather my stuff and find somewhere to stay. I just recently turned 18 so there’s nothing I can really do about it, and it’s getting harder and harder to get by. I work as much as I can but it never seems to be enough, and on top of that I’m also balancing a full load of AP classes at school and working on college applications any spare moment that I have. Ever since my mom kicked me out I’ve been couch floating between friends and my girlfriend, and I could really use any help that I can get. Within the next few months I’m going to have to pay entirely my own phone bill, car insurance, college application fees and eventually college tuition and rent. Thinking about it all can just get to be so overwhelming. As soon as I graduate from hugh school I plan to get a second job and maybe a third in order to save up and be able to sustain myself but until then I would like to be able to save up money for the future, not just barely scrape by Not to mention that through all of this, I have absolutely no support from my parents about who I am and oh my goodness it is just f***ing breaks my heart. Anyways this feels very long and thank you to anybody who takes the time to read it, it means a lot to me and I hope you can find it in your heart to help me out a little.
Hi, my name is Lori and I need your help. That phrase was hard for me. I have taken great pride in my ability to take care of myself financially. That has all changed now. I owe money to the IRS, my state for taxes, various medical bills, loans, utilities, insurance for vehicle, overdrawn checking accounts, storage unit for my belongings that I can’t fit into my apartment, my cell phone, the monthly co-pays on the prescriptions I take, and misc other bills but most importantly my rent. I do not want to have to move out of my current apartment building because it has no stairs for me to climb. I am currently unable to climb stairs. I do not see a way out of the mess I am in without help. I have thought about filing bankruptcy but that would not solve all of my problems nor would it give me money to live on. In the long run, it will cost me money – hiring an attorney and the court costs. I do not have any family members that I can turn to for help. I have exhausted all of my friends for help. I have reached out to different programs in my community and none are able to help me. I am not currently not in bad enough condition for their help. Things really went downhill fast a couple of months ago when I was the victim of two different scams. I have a good paying, full time time job and I have been trying to dig myself out of the hole. That has proven difficult because there are two different garnishments on my paychecks that leave my net paycheck not big enough to cover all of my monthly bills. The garnishment company does not care if they are making my survival very hard. My financial problems have distracted me at work, so my job productivity has fallen off so I was not allowed to work overtime for extra money. My physical limitations make it hard for me to get around so getting a second job would prove to be difficult for me. I have a vehicle, but it is old and in need of repairs. My area had a long and hard winter last year and I hope my vehicle will be able to make it through the upcoming winter season. I thank you for reading this and hope you find it your heart to help me.
Hello. Thank you for considering me for your donation. I guess I’ll get right to it, I am in borderline financial crisis and could use any amount of help.
Please allow me to provide a brief introduction. My name is Aly. I am an accountant by trade and have worked several years in the corporate world. Late in 2017, I was struck by a debilitating health issue. I was protected under the FMLA for 12 weeks. Unfortunately, the issue took longer than 12 weeks to resolve, and I had to resign from a great job with an amazing company and it breaks my heart to this day. I have yet to regain my footing and control of my financial life as I am struggling daily just to keep a roof over my head. As a result, I have spent my savings, maxed out all of my credit, and used any and all loans from my family and friends that I had access too.
I am currently and have been staying in hotels, but the bills are just getting too much to cover nightly. I was barely managing, and then I had a recent bed bug encounter at a low-cost weekly rate motel that has left me in dire straits. The incident has cost me hundreds of dollars, laundering all that I could, some items had to go through twice, and replacing many unsalvageable items. Further funds that I was lucky to be able to cover. Unfortunately, I have learned the hard way that there is very little recourse in the state of Washington to recoup losses associated with bed bugs due to the nature and cost involved in proving fault.
As a result, my funds have been reduced to almost nothing. I spent the last 2 days planning, doing, and trying everything I could think of to raise more funds. I had a little success, allowing me to pay for the room tonight. Now I am at a loss, I can think of no viable way to pay for another night, and I am completely scared by the prospect of life in my tiny car. Single female sleeping alone in an alley or underpass somewhere sounds less than safe to me. Then there are the bills that I have not mentioned, nor really been able to think about, that have gone or will go delinquent this month… My credit does not stand a chance as is, making regaining my footing an even greater impossibility. My anxiety is rising rapidly as I am thinking about this all in such a concise manner.
This plea is a difficult one. I am a proud person who did not foresee the need to ask/beg others for help to get basic needs met. Yet, here I am. I tremendously appreciate any possible amount I might receive. I cannot thank you enough and fully intend to pay it forward when I get back on my feet, very soon I hope.
My name is Saleem Issah, I am 17 yrs old, writing from the depths of my heart. Currently, my family is facing a severe economic situation that could eventually render us homeless. This is why I have used this medium to reach out to the good people of the world to hear my story and hopefully appeal to their kind hearts to render support to my family and me. My story is that of a single immigrant mom of 4 kids, all boys, our reality is that of an American family from the South Bronx area of New York, which is the poorest county in the nation. My mom works three separate Jobs to fend for the entire family; i watch her go in and out, and I feel a growing pain in my heart because of her struggles. She tries to keep up a warm smile to hide the sadness and pain in her eyes, but the pain is something that is difficult to hide. I wish I were older so I could render support through hard work, but it’s beyond my means at the moment. This is why I have opted to use this medium to appeal to the people of America and the rest of the world to see me as a son in need, read my story as a sad American story. In my current reality, we owe 2 months of back rent and are facing eviction soon, my brothers and I will have to be separated and the younger ones put in the foster system, I do not know what will become of me from here on, at this point in my existence the American dream is beyond reach; I appeal to the great people of America to assist me in reconstructing my reality and help my family actualize the American dream. I need 20,000 to give my family a fighting chance in this journey we call life.

GI’m A 25 year old single mother of boys ages 7, 3 and 2. I’ve struggled majority of my life. Mother married a drug addict and father absent due to drug abuse, which killed him in the long run not even a year ago from today on 8/18/2017. I recently lost everything. Evicted from the first house I ever owned in less than 3 months of owning it. I lived in Topeka, KS, with the only major support being my Grandmother Leslie. Lord how I wish she could help me and save me the embarrassment of exposing my miserable, un-wealthy, un-healthy life. I wish she could help me one last time, but she has recently requested me to make believe that she has passed away and asks that I no longer ask her for help. My kids father’s are absent, they have always been absent, I am still dumbfounded to this day, why I kept having kids, when i knew I had to fight for their dads love. Even though I fought for their love, they fought me in return. I suffered physical and mental abuse from My kids fathers, suffering internal damages to the stomach, lost teeth that were punched out, countless cars that were vandalized and the worse, my boys missed out on a real father being their for their kids in the most supportive way. All these events in my life led me to run, and run fast an far. I’ve gotten in the worst bind, my car is overdue on a title loan and worst I had to get new tires and they are delinquent too! I may lose it all, within the same week, car, house, and finances. That’s why I’m here today, if I can save anything, I’d rather save my mind and my children. I pray that anyone with a pulse will help me financially in the most godliest way. I’m homeless, I have 17 dollars to my name. 10 of that is credit and my gas tank is on E. I picked me and my kids up and ran 200 miles away to start a new life. I need help though, I can’t do this on my own. I can’t lose my sanity and I can’t lose my children. If anyone can help me get my title loan paid off and pay my tires and get me and my boys off the

Hello, I’m Evan. I work two jobs; animal control officer, and construction worker. I make about minimum wage where I am, and I work so long, in hard conditions. I dont mind working, but working is hard when you’re hungry, and stressed about how you’re going to pay your bills. Recently, my apartment manager gave me an eviction notice, after I had asked her if I could pay the day after rent is due. I don’t ask much, but I really need at leash $650. My dog, Fjorn, and kitty cat, kitty would like to keep the roof above their heads, and food in their dishes. I can barely feed myself. This poverty started about a year ago. I was deployed to Afghanistan some time ago, and came back a couple of years after. I was honorably discharged, but couldn’t find a job for the life of me. I ended up finding a decent job, and had to relocate, and my wife of 10 years decided she wanted to part ways. I had a young son to care for alone, while working in a late night setting. He’s out of the house now, residing with his mother. Rent is 650 and cheapest in my town. I ask for just this one help. Thank you all so much for taking the time to read this, and I hope you all have a great day.
