Hi, Thanks for reading. We are in desperate need of rent money for 2 months. My husband lost his job 2 years ago. He is in construction, so work is very slow. He has been getting side jobs from Craigslist for those last two years, and it has been a blessing and has kept us from being homeless. We do not get any financial Aid or Welfare or Food Stamps. I’ve been wanting to ask the state, but my pride gets in the way. Now I have lost my pride by asking for help from total strangers. I am in tears writing this, I’ve always supported my self with no issues, but now I am desperate.
We have the best landlords (sisters) you could ever ask for, and I don’t want to take advantage of them. We owe for Nov. & Dec. Rent is $1700.00 a month. We have one teenage son. We have lived here for 10 years, and have never been behind in rent. We have never asked for help. My husband doesn’t even know that I am asking for help, he would be very embarrassed as well as I am. But I have been crying for weeks now, and my health is not good right now. My 73 year old father is dying, and now my kitty cats are very sick too.
Even if I can get one months rent, that would be great, since my landlords will work with us. We rent from a private party. We are close with them, but it’s not right to take advantage of their kindness.
I promise to help others when we get on our feet again. We have helped others in the past too. My son (14 years old) once gave a homeless man a $20.00 bill! I told him that’s alot but he though he did a great thing. I am so proud of him, for helping out on his own.
I sell online some, Craigslist and Ebay to bring in extra cash, but it’s not enough. I am a 51 year old mom, and have chronic pain.
Please help, I’m so scared, so scared we will be homeless soon. We don’t have very many family members left, and they are just barely making it too. We manage the rest of our bill, always late but somehow they get paid. Anything you can help with is so very much appreciated! We would be blessed! Thanks for your support.
