I’m Paula single mother of 3, living in Houston, TX looking to raise enough money so that my kids and I can move from our current small 2 bedroom apartment into our new 3 bedroom town home. I’ve found someone to move us for free and I have enough to buy some groceries for the new place. Due to my credit my deposit is $1,500 which is equivalent to first month rent. I don’t have to pay anything for the actual month of June being that they were running a special for 1st month free rent, so my actual rent will not be due until July. I’m required to pay this extra deposit before I can obtain my keys. I’m sure you’re wondering how I got the apartment without income. The job I’d been working ended recently. I’ve always been a positive person and I’ve developed very good administrative skills to find a great job in time before July. Right now I’m just in this bind and I really did not expect them to ask for that much of a deposit, but I know it will be okay. I’ve prayed that there are some angels out there that are willing to help out with whatever you can. I figured even if 75 people donate $20 a piece, that would be great. I’m not the type of person to ever ask anyone for anything unless I REALLY need it. The lease in our current apartment is just about up and I simply can’t renew and don’t want to renew due to the conditions of the inside and outside of the property. In the past year we’ve gotten 4 notices about break-ins and robberies. A neighbour told my told girls (whom are teens) to be careful because there had been a rape a couple of months ago on the property. Not sure how true that is. On top of that I’ve never in my life had to kill so many cockroaches! No matter how clean we keep it, they keep finding a way in. We literally have to turn on a light and look around before we enter the rooms in the apartment to make sure a cockroach isn’t lurking somewhere. I’m sorry, I left out my other child (four-legged) whom we adopted a few months ago when things were good. His name is Captain. He’s a 4 month old lab/border collie mix and I simply refuse to take him back to the shelter because he’s very good at keeping my highly emotional 14 year old calm and he’s the little brother to my oldest boy who’s 16. Please excuse the small rant. One day I’m hoping to be the lender and not the borrower. If you can help please trust that it will be greatly appreciated. I believe in the power of prayer. God Bless anyone that’s able to help.
