Family of Six in need of emergency rent funds
My family and I are in a bind. Three months ago when our only vehicle lost
its transmission, my husband and I found ourselves out of work – his
contract was lost because his job required use of our vehicle and my job was
lost because there is no bus, and cab fare was too costly due to our
distance away from the job site.
I recently acquired new employment with a good company and was actually
looking for a 2nd job, but recently, I suffered a major injury and tore my
Achilles tendon off the job. This has put me out of commission for several
weeks which has resulted in our current situation.
With a family of six, and one of my four kids being special needs, my
husband has been staying home during the days and working on web development
and PC game development since our car died. He is designing his portfolio to
display his work and designs for employment opportunities, but while he is
working at home nonstop, he has been unable to find contracts for his wok.

we need for rent, for the months of April or May. I am due to receive one
more paycheck on Friday (5/10/2013) and will be able to pay $500 toward
rent. However, I will receive an eviction notice on 5/17/2013 if I am unable
to pay the remaining $610.00, after which we will have 7 days to vacate the
This is where I extend a plea for your help. Please lend us assistance.
Every penny / dollar helps. We appreciate it very much.
