My family and myself have recently become homeless. We were supposed to move out of state and basically got screwed after making our way out there and waiting for the owner to leave the home so we could rent it. Two days prior to move in day, we were told he no longer wished to rent to us... We lost everything... As much as I hate to admit it, due to the circumstances, my husband and I , as well as our 5 children and my elderly mother, have all been forced to live in a 1 bed hotel room since November. The room alone is $700 a week, and that is just for a 1 bed room and a bathroom. No kitchen, or extra living space; just barely enough room for an extra blow up mattress and what belongings we still have. Due to the price we are paying here, and the cost of trying to keep food in our kids mouths and diapers, we simply are struggling to survive. Our kids are ages 6, 4, 3, 18 months and 4 months. My husband does work, but basically his entire paycheck is going into paying for the hotel weekly. We are barely scraping by... I just want to be able to get my family in an actual apartment so things could just be a little easier and mre stable. As is, we barely have a penny to our name. Please.. We just want to get back on our feet and into the proper environment for our family.. We just need that initial boost for a security deposit and first months rent since we don't have any money to spare without risking what little of a roof we have over our heads now.. And we have gone to every organization in our area that is supposed to be there to help families in need, all to no avail.. Where we are, apparently we have too large of a family for their resources..
