I am unsure of what to say, I feel immobilized by my dilemma and all the effort and energy I have been putting into resolving it. I will type and continue to type and apologize if it seems hard to follow as I am truly frazzled. Thank you for taking the time to read about my plight.
I am in an emergency situation and need $800.00 to cover the rest of my rent for this month (November) else the apartment will be filing eviction on me soon. I have paid partial $300.00 but $800.00 remains, because it is late they added on a late fee of which increased the amount I owe. I have talked to them and requested an extension, and I am near the end of that extension.
I don’t expect one person to give me $800.00, I truly appreciate any amount you are able to provide to help towards resolving my dilemma.
I don’t qualify for any loans as my credit, which I have worked hard to maintain over the years, has taken a severe nosedive recently due to my credit cards being past due. I am unable to pay them due to not having steady work. And the balances increased as I had to use them to pay my utilities, medical expenses (I am a type 1 diabetic, insulin dependent, and I am currently going without one of my required insulins) until they were maxed. I have had to let so many things go and focus on literally just keeping a roof over my head. I am struggling to pay my gas, electric, water, and my cellphone in order to have some way to communicate with people. I do not have any “extra’s” no internet or cable or anything like that, no car, etc. I live very barebones right now. My family has already helped out financially as much as they could. I have been trying to come up with the money for weeks and I managed to pay them partial of $300.00 and just have the remainder of $800.00 to pay by tomorrow and I am exhausted with searching. I have spent the past weeks applying for loans, searching for charities, churches, financial/rent assistance and the few resources available either are outdated/no longer exist in my area or I don’t qualify due to my status (unmarried with no children)
I am honestly at my wits’ end and truly need help. I am grateful to those who find it within their heart and spirit to help me.
I am at the last leg of my journey in this place as my lease is up next month (I will be staying with family who graciously offered me a place to stay with them so that I can work on getting back on my feet) and I refuse to let the apartment I am at now ruin my name on my way out by filing an eviction. I have been a good tenant for the many years I have lived here, paid rent on time every month, it is only recently in the past few months I have struggled due to loss of employment and struggling to get steady income.
I am thinking long term, as once I am back on my feet, I will need to be able to rent/lease again and having an eviction on my record will negatively impact me greatly. I truly need help over this hurdle.
