Help With Rent And Security Deposit

LouM started this conversation

I am in need of some emergencey help for a place to live for me and my daughter. We are currently homeless and staying with anyone who will let us stay a night or 2. I am on disability and have found an apartment I can afford but need funding for the deposit and first months rent.

                                                                                 Thank You Lou

I have 5 days to find a place for me and my 6 and 4 yr old! I have been filling out application and keeping in contact with them and nobody wants to hire! I'm struggling and scared for my kids! I feel like a bad person because my kids deserve the best and I'm struggling and trying my best to make them happy especially at this time of year not wanting my kids to be left out!! I hate to ask for money but this is a bad time for me! With whatever you can help me with I will get back on my feet and bless you back! I just don't knw what to do right now , very stressed.

see that is the problem with all these land lords they think that u dont know or cant do anything about there actions so they do what ever they want but i am in a shelter now because a slum lord but there is plenty u can do and on the land lords dime where he will have to pay for u a new place to live if i knew where u lived i could look up some places to help u it might take some time in court but u will have what u desearve in the long run and the land lord will have to pay even judge judy or one of the tv judges go to ur court house and try and talk to any attorney will give u free advice just stop and ask questions to as many as u can one might even want to help for free u would be amazed of how many attorneys will give u the advice that u need if u do it please let me know the results u get i have always got really good results they sometimes dont have time to stop and talk but there are some that do its well worth the time if dont happen the firt try go back i got some of my best advice just by stopping and giving it a shot and u can look for a probono attorney go to the collage with the student getting there degree man many ways to get ur life back from a slum lord i wish u the best of luck

You can apply for rent-assisted housing,also called section 8.. There is an limit on how much income you can have and be eligible for section 8, if you get disability and alimony need to check and be sure you are eligible. There will probably be a list of people ahead of you for the housing so also check around for something just temporary like women's shelter.

God can help you. Talk to Him. Let me know if you want me to write you a prayer. Or you can read some of the ones that I have written for others on this website. Scroll through my public page. God works miracles. He has worked many for me.

I had apartment but fell behind in the 7month so my landlord had me remove and he told me of i didnt give him 1150 dollar i couldnt have my belonging he donate and gave away it all and then he had my discoverer and told me if i didnt pay him he would call my ex in illinois and mke sure i lose my alimony and he did all my personal. Property he gave away before the 21 day holding period. Seen then i became homeless i dont have money for a lawyer to sue him im on disability but it not enough to get apartment im 51 year old all i do is cry is there some one thst could help me
