Hi my name is Stephanie Howard and I’m a single woman who is in NEED of help! This is new for me but I put pride aside because I just moved and I need help with 2 months rent plus fees,etc. I have a Notice to leave the premises letter which is enclosed right along with my rent portal and proof that I’m telling the truth. Total I need $2225.00 That is for June and July plus late fees and NSF fees. So in a nutshell I was supposed to be receiving help from our relief funding but to no avail. They said it was to take 6 to 8 weeks and everything I’ve submitted, etc but I’m assuming they are backed up but I personally know some others have received help and have submitted their applications after me so I don’t know what the issue is because they have said it’s in the order received. Honestly I’m not sure what the hold up is but I just don’t have it. I don’t have anyone to borrow from my credit is jacked so a personal loan is out of the question….trust me I’ve tried. I am self employed I am a hair stylist. On the contrary summertime is our slowest season why? Because it’s hot and people get like protective styles or style none because they are swimming and vactioning so they don’t get their hair done often unless they just got it like that. So yes even though i HAD to go up on my prices this it started June 1st. But the business is just slow like I’m making booth rent just barely and so I”m really like Lord what do I do and saw a youtube video where a woman was talking about websites that help those and donate to those in need. I am looking for something to supplement my income at the moment so that I can be ahead of things but it’s just not in time for this situation. My rent is $1000/mo that’s $950 with water $50 included. If the rent portal like partial payments it would seem a little easier but they don’t especially when it’s late so I’m not going to lie I sent it through to my bank account because I felt it would buy me time and that the 513relief program would come through but they haven’t so here I am in this pickle. I hadn’t been here long and I know that God opened this door for me to get into this apartment and I know it’s not for me to move already. This is a bump in the road and the bible says you have not cause you ask not God and I wasn’t even looking for this site because I didn’t even know that a site like this existed! So please I don’t want to be homeless again I’ve been that years ago and I understand that there’s no way around this inflated rent but honestly is like I feel like I can’t get ahead but I know that God will make a way but faith without works is dead so I have to start somewhere. My notice to leave the premises is July 10 which is Monday. So I’m asking please don’t put an eviction on me if they can just hold off from filing that. I’m in need of a miracle at this point. It would be such a blessing if you all could bless me like it will be greatly appreciated! Thank you for allowing me to share my need. I enclosed my phone number if anyone wants to text me to verify some more or if you need anything else then that’s ok too.
Sincerely needing help!
