I’m coming to you with the need of a hand up out of a Homeless camp. Let me explain. Back before January 2020, my husband daughter and I lived in a 4/1 house on 2 acres for 11 years. During those 11 years, the owner of the house had my husband do maintenance for all his properties. In exchange, we got to live in the house. I had had an accident in March of 2008 that rendered my back pretty much useless to the point of where i couldn’t hold down a job due to pain. I had applied for SSD/SSI but have been denied 14 times. My daughter (30 years old) can not hold any kind of job due to mental issues.
Fast forward to January 6, 2020. The owner of the house tells us he just signed the papers for the house to be turned over to my neighbor! Who informed us that we had til February 1st to leave the house! We scrambled to try and find out where to store our belongings, how to get them to storage, and find a place to be. My husband scrambled to get back in the industry he knows best- Trucking. He was then scheduled to leave for orientation on January 28th. My daughter and I had to finish what we could as fast as we could. We where able to secure a room at a hotel that we could pay by the week. Then, while putting money away to try and purchase a vehicle, the hotel was closed down for various reasons and everyone had to leave.
Again, we had to hurry to find a new place. Hotel #2 was available at $250 more and was the only one available with big rig parking near by. Stayed there for 7 months and Hubby had to quit the job due to lack of payment to him. We couldnt pay the $610 a week so we had to leave. This time, i didn’t have a savings since 99% of his pay went to the room. Our only option was a homeless camp near by.
We have been here for 14 weeks trying to save now that he is in a better company.We are in Florida and the heat is extreme! We have an option for a room at yet another hotel that charges $1350 a month! I have only 1/4 of that saved since we have had to pay for storage, cell phones, and camping equipment. My husband has been home for 10 days trying to get his Class A CDL with hazmat endorsment renewed. So no check this week. Can you please help us with at least 2 months of rent so that we can breathe and save for our final move to Mims FL where I have a place for us & we can finally get a vehicle? We just need this small hand up of $2700.
Thank you for your Time and consideration!
I can’t get a pay pal since I’m fighting with Illinois to get my birth certificate to renew my licence!
