Single mother needs help w/ Hotel/Security Deposit/Rent
Organized by: Jennifer Paolella
My name is Jennifer and I am a single mother in desperate need of help to come up with a security deposit and first months rent. Or We will be homeless.......come August 1 I will be forced to rent a hotel until sept 1 ..my situation began About 6 months ago when I lost my job of 2 years , I felt like it was the worst thing in the world to happen to me until I started to fall behind on my bills because unemployment just wasn't enough to get by . So I lost my apartment n became homeless with my 5 yr old daughter. I just felt like my whole world was falling apart, i stayed at my dads for a little bit but couldn't stay to long so We had to leave and that's when I decided to send my daughter to stay with family in June for the summer so I could look for work and work on finding a place. After about 3 months of being unemployed and sending my resume out to about 50 different job postings and only 2 called me back for an interview, the first interview I went on I wasn't qualified enough for the job, I started to feel discouraged until I got a call asking me to come in for an interview on one of the last jobs I had applied for and I was hired on the spot , I started to work 2 days later so now I am working full time . During my first week of employment I did find a room to rent for a reasonable amount a month so I moved into the room in July and about 2 weeks after I moved in I was told I have that to move and be out by August 1 because the person I'm renting the room from was renting the room without permission from her landlord so now leaves me in a worst position just when I thought things were finally going to get better they got worse and now leave me desperate for help with being able to come up with money to get an apartment so I don't have to go through this again, and put my daughter through this I am so glad that she wasn't here as I am going through this , I now have a full time job that I make enough money to afford the rent of an apartment but the one problem I have is even if I find an apartment I'm still stuck because I don't have the security because with the paychecks I've been getting I have been catching up with my car payment and car insurance .....PLEASE IF U CAN HELP ME I REALLY NEED THE HELP ....my daughter is coming home the end of August and I need to be in an apartment by the time she comes home, because she has to start kindergarten in September, so please if u can find it in your heart to help by donating whatever u can will be appreciated and I will be very grateful for it, I don't want to end up in a shelter with my daughter I hear so many terrible things and it scares me to even think about that I may end up in one with my daughter and I don't want to put her through that ....Please Help me with security and first months rent , no amount is to little so whatever u can do it will be helpful.
